Preferred Solution: Forgot administrator password and bios password

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello perkymang, We are sorry as there is no master password or generator for EliteBooks or ProBooks. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again !! **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

A:Forgot my BIOS administrator password

Hi, Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc. The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly. Regards, DP-K

Hi, If you're running Windows 8 or 8.1, see the Microsoft page on the following link. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-8/forgot-windows-password Note:  If you have a Local Account, try the free application Here. If you're running Windows 7, Vista etc, try the following. Using another PC, download the application on the following link and save it to your Downloads folder. PC Login Now When the download has completed, open your Downloads folder and double-click the installer - this will result in another file appearing which is the disc image ( .ISO ) that you need to burn to a blank CD. You will now need to use an application such as ImgBurn to burn this ISO correctly to a blank CD - a guide on using ImgBurn to write an ISO to a disc is Here. When the disc has been created, shutdown the PC you can't log-in on, tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start-up Menu, insert the CD, select Boot Options ( usually f9 ), use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and hit enter - you may also have to 'Press any key' to boot from the CD if asked. Follow the instructions on the guide Here to remove the current password. Regards, DP-K

I have Windows 10 Pro - Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393

I somehow lost my Administrator privilege and now can't run numerous programs because I forgot my Administrator password.

On the login screen both my Account and the Administrator Account is displayed. When I click on Administrator, the Administrator login screen appears and the tiny circle goes round and round for approx. 2 minutes and then a black screen appears. After about 20 minutes the screen was still black so I gave up. I had to switch users (to my account) by clicking "Switch User" via Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

I've made sure the Administrator account is enabled as per instructions that I had received - i.e. checking that a registry key value is "10" not "11". See attached.

I am currently using my Microsoft Account for sign-in. I doubt this makes any difference.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Here's my tale of woe. I'm trying to help my friend. Her daughter, months ago, set up her then new HP Pavillion dv1000 (actually dv1519US) notebook computer running Windows XP Home Edition. She made jerself the Administrator but gave her mother, the computer's owner, only a limited user account. She then gave her mother the computer. The mother, my friend, uses the computer infrequently. Recently she was unable to get online wirelessly and asked for my help. I am typing this on the subject computer. I was able to get my friend online, but when I sought to install a couple of applications and uninstall a couple of others I discovered that my friend did not have administrator privileges. So I tried to logon using the daughter's user account but found that neither my friend or her daughter could remember the daughter's password. They could not find the recovery disks. I contacted HP and purchased the recovery disks. Today I received two disks in the mail.  One is the Operating System CD. The other is the Application and Driver Recovery DVD. I wanted to restore the computer to its original configuration, wiping out everything and starting anew. I put the Operating System CD in the tray and booted the computer. The Press any key to change boot order message appeared and I hit a key. A message appeared that said something like Checking computer's hardware configuration, and then...nothing. I am unable to get the Operating System CD to go any furth... Read more

A:Forgot Administrator password

If this were a desktop, I would suggest removing the battery - letting the beast sit for a minute or so - and then reinsert the battery.  That has cleared admin passwords for me.  The other option might be to boot the system in safe mode. I have found in the past with XP that if User "A" is set up as an admin and User "B"has limited access that there is usually a third master Admin account that never shows up unless the safe mode is used.  From there you should be able to remove any password protection. If that doesn't work, try  http://www.maximumpc.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=36&sid=89c1f6732c064ff878879b9c9e6f2f28 .

Hi everyone i have just installed win 7 in my new pc and forgot to give admin permission for the user and joined it into Domain....I would like to reset admin password..........

A:i forgot the administrator password for win 7

The easiest thing to do is to ask your domain administrator to do that for you, as all domain admins have admin privs on machines joined to the domain. But if that is not possible, you'll have to poke around for one of those rescue cds that allows you to change reset the admin password by booting from a cd.

Unfortunately with out this and the password reset disk there may not be an easy way to get around this problem with out doing a fresh install of the operating system on the pc.

Now I cannot access my computer.  Does anyone have any advice for me -- other than not to let remote users control my computer?
