Preferred Solution: Cmos or bios administrator password forgotten

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 3bdom7sn, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. 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 thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... 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.

I used to have a total of three user accounts and mine including the other two were set to Administrator accounts with individual passwords. I'm cutting a very long story short but my brother accessed mine and my sisters accounts through his own as he had the privileges and changed the our user accounts. He put passwords on both of them and then set his own account and my sisters to a limited account but left mine administrator. Next morning he had forgotten what the passwords were as he was completely obliterated by alcohol at the time of the incident except by some divine miracle not his own. So now were stuck with the one account, his account (he now has his own computer so isn't troubled by the problem), and i can't install or update anything because i don't have the privileges as its a limited account. I have tried to the booting in safe mode but it doesnt work because im not the administrator and i have also tried to CTRL-ALT-DELx2 at the welcome screen and typed in Administrator and left the pw blank but it says i can't log on. Please i am extremely frustrated and would like some help. Thanks

I forgot the administrator password for windows 10. I had another user profile but I can't download anything without the administrator password. I have been told my only option is to reinstall windows 10 altogether, but my computer came with windows already installed, so I don't have a disc or anything.
How can I reinstall windows 10 without the administrator password??
Or even better.. how can I reset my password?

A:Forgotten administrator password.. HELP!

If you review the Rules you'll quickly see that we do not help with forgotten passwords.

Check the documentation for your computer to see how to get to the "Recovery" or "Restore" option without booting to Windows first. Assuming you are successful you may want to then make your own Recovery USB flash drive or set of DVDs (there will be a way to do this once).

Or, I think that you can download Windows 10 here.

Can anyone help me with a forgotten password problem please .. for silly reasons the Administrator Password has been forgotten on my nieces laptop, running Vista, which I have no knowledge of. I tried booting up in safe mode as I would in XP but it takes me directly to the two accounts (eg the admin account we set for the parental controls and my nieces standard account) and is wanting a password, which of course we have forgotten! Gone is the 'Administrator' account you could bypass all that and make relevant changes.

Does anyone have a clue how to get around this problem easily?

Thanks in anticipation

There are various other helpful tips on this subject, just google it.The Offline NT Password & Registry editor http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/ is a very good tool. You will need to create a boot disk or floppy to run it from, but if the pc supports it boot from USB or any other boot device. Search the name and it will turn up a tutorial somewhere.

A few months ago, I got a "user profile service failed to log on" message (or words similar to this). In the process of correcting this, I learned of the built-in administrator account, & how to enable / disable it. Unfortunately, I gave this built-in administrator account a password; unfortunately, because I now have forgotten the password. Also, there is not another user account with administrator privileges on my laptop. Any suggestions for somehow resetting the forgotten password for the built-in administrator account?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can?t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who?s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we?ll show you the light.
1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available.
CIA commander:
This tool only works on NTFS partitions, but it works great! You can even use it to copy data from one place to another. But it is not for free. http://www.datapol-techno... Read more
