      Dominique,

      The steps mentioned in this article need to be followed to reset the BIOS or the CMOS password. This involves opening the computer up and reseating the CMOS battery (it looks like a coin).

      In case you’ve lost the login password, you will not need to open the machine up. The steps that are needed to be followed in that case depend on the operating system installed on your computer.

      In case it has Windows XP, you can login to the default ‘Administrator’ account and remove or change the password for your user account.
      • Restart the computer.
      • When you get to the login screen, press ‘Alt’ and ‘Ctrl’ and hit ‘Delete’ twice.
      • In the ‘User name’ field, type “Administrator”. Leave the ‘Password’ field blank and press enter.
      Note: This is the default Username-Password combination for the default Administrator account. It would not work if this was changed manually.

      Once you login, type ‘control userpasswords2’ in Start>Run, choose your user account and either remove the password or change it.

      For Windows 7,
      • Restart the system and tap F8 immediately.
      • When you get to the ‘Advanced boot options’, select ‘Repair your computer’ (available on some OEM copies of Vista too) and press Enter.
      • Choose ‘Command Prompt’ from the list of options.
      • Type ‘net user abcd 1234’ (replace abcd with the name of the user account that is locked and 1234 with the new password) and press Enter.
      • Restart the system and try to login using this new password.

      If you have Windows Vista and the ‘Repair your computer’ option is not available, you would need the installation disk to follow similar steps if this is the only user account on the system.

      Hope it helps. Otherwise, please post back with the details about the operating system etc.

    Hi, we need help please,
    we need to locate the CMOS battery for our Panasonic Toughbook CF-19 model on the motherboard, we need to remove the battery for a few minutes, and then reinsert the battery. This is to reset our CMOS and our password.
    Could-you send us a procedure for this ? Shall-we start by the keyboard ?
    Thanks for answering.
