    Depending on the motherboard, wouldn't you just clear the cmos using the jumper just for that?
    Indeed. I'm sure your motherboard has a cmos jumper next to, or around, the cmos battery. And you won't have to wait 12 hours either...

    BTW, I see a lot of new faces around here... Where did all the oldies go?

    Cognoscenti: Is it right that SLSNM gets flaky above 82F or is it me that gets flaky above 82F? Joyce Hornady once told me that it was the SLSNM pill and she sent me some of hers......but that was sort of cheating?

    I was reading through this article and I was hoping maybe some of you could help me out. I have lost my password for an account that I have on a website. Is there a program or anything that I can use to recover it. The website does not allow me to email without the security question and I can't figure out my security question. My actual fear is that my boyfriend changed the password on the account

    Hello my miniature mosquito

    Welcome to AO, and you have incurred my wrath already by adding your post to someonelse's..................

    The simple answer is "no"...........

    BUT................. try opening a new account and using that to e-mail your administrators...........it actually works, as one admin on this site will attest to

    These days, decent systems don't let you "recover" passwords...........you need admin authority and re-set them
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....

    Don't worry about it............I have a strange sense of humour

    My point is that you should start your own thread unless the circumstances are exactly the same, and the answers don't work.

    This guy cannot even start his computer because of the BIOS password, like even if he had NO operating system, he would not be able to install one. This is sometimes called a "power up password"......... your question is related to an application, which is a different sort of problem (I am afraid that you must trust me on that one)

    The reason we like to keep things together is so that people can use search engines and find answers for themselves, similarly, we like different subjects kept separate.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
