I have a GP6 450 Dated 12/30/98. I forgot the BIOS log on password. I have many old family photos on the computer and I can't get in.....Can I bypass the password to get the machine to complete its BOOT-UP?

The Bios password does not reset when you reset the bios. Even taking out the battery does not help. On my old IBM Thinkpad the only fix was to replace the bios chip. I scraped the laptop and bought a new one. I'll never set a fracken bios password again.
 
The easiest way to reset a forgotten Windows password I ever use is to use Windows Password Reset tool,just a few steps:
Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Reset
Step 2: Burn Windows Password Reset Std ISO file to CD/DVD
Step 3: Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows Password.

It's better than reset password from mode, or create password reset disk,just need a few minutes.Hope it can help you.
I believe he's referring to the BIOS password, not the Win account password.
 
Admin/moderator,
please be aware that due to a deleted message that was quoted, this thread is stuck as active in my 'threads' column. Apparently it is a bug in the system. If not fixable, please close the thread. Thanks.

Edit: nevermind, adding this comment seems to have "unstuck" it.
Closing this thread would still be a reasonable suggestion, though.
