Re: Admin Password

You need to go back to your first post and read what is there you have not said if it is
a bios password or a windows password !
Posting your questions on other forums is not going to help you stick with the first post a follow up on it !
Again is it a bios or windows password ???

Re: Admin Password

mikehandy31,
 
If the password that you needed was a BIOS password, you would not be able to use the computer at all.  It seems more likely that you need to log into the Windows Administrtor account.  To log into the Windows Administrator account, (not Admin), enter the username of Administrator and leave the password blank.  This is commonly the default password for the Administrator account. 
 
If that does not get you into the Administrator account, there are utilities available on the web which will let you change the administrator password on your computer.  They can often be downloaded to a floppy disk or you can make a bootable CD with one of these password reset utilities on it.  You can search on sites such as www.download.com or www.majorgeeks.com to locate one of these utilities.
