Yes, it is the logon password
can you tell me what operating system it has windows xp, vista
Windows 95. Old computer.
1)when the computer boots[IMAGE][SRC][/SRC][ALT][/ALT][WIDTH]100[/WIDTH][HEIGHT]100[/HEIGHT][STYLE][/STYLE][/IMAGE] keep pressing F8 until you get to a boot screen.
2)Select boot in DOS.
3)Get yourself into the windows folder by typing cd [IMAGE][SRC][/SRC][ALT][/ALT][WIDTH]100[/WIDTH][HEIGHT]100[/HEIGHT][STYLE][/STYLE][/IMAGE] windows" (without the "")
4)next type "dir *.pwl". This will display the login password XXXXX
5)after you found out the one thats yours (or ne1 elses you want to get into) type del username.pwl
6)Reboot the computer
7)When you have to login, put in the username you deleted, and enter ne password XXXXX like.
8)The computer [IMAGE][SRC][/SRC][ALT][/ALT][WIDTH]100[/WIDTH][HEIGHT]100[/HEIGHT][STYLE][/STYLE][/IMAGE] will say something like "No password. Would you like to use this one? Confirm?
9)Put your password XXXXX and you are in
ignore the image part
Just tried the jabbing the F8 on boot several times, It still wants the password. This after several tries booting up.
turn off the laptop wait for a minute
turn it on and keep hitting it several time the F8 key it will launch a black window with options
I did that again, still no black window. Just the regular Fujitsu bootup window, sometimes with options of F1 to resume, F2 to the setup screen. Both want the password. I read elsewhere online about removing the CMOS battery? I didn't work on computers, but I know what's inside. I am a retired comsumer electronics tech.
if you are getting a password XXXXX before loading the windows then its the bios password XXXXX works like a physical security lock and its not the windows login password XXXXX
in this case you will have to take the laptop to any laptop repair shop they will remove the bios chip to deactivate the password XXXXX removing of only the bios battery on the motherboard will not help
the bios chip has to be removed.
Thanks for the answer. This was a company computer I used and I been in it a few times doing minor repairs to it.
Windows password XXXXX be cracked but if the bios has a password XXXXX the bios chip has to be removed physically from the motherboard to deactivate the password.
