  1. Can't login


    trying to put new hard drive in. My old unit would shut down randomly and come rite back on. I am trying to change the hard drive and see if that will fix the problem. But I put another hard drive in and when it comes on ask for my password and it says invalid just won't take it. Is there a way to erase the password part so I can install win 10 pro? Or is this unit just junk. I am not the britest star in the sky when it comes to this sort of thing. Can some give me help?
    Thanks
    Ben

    Password for windows 10

    To be clear, you can't login to your computer and get to the start menu, or you can't login to your MS account, or both?

    Hello Ben, *Smile

    Would this be for entering a BIOS/UEFI password something like below instead of the sign-in for Windows 10?

    If yes, then you should be able to reset CMOS to clear it. Some motherboards have a reset button on the motherboard to do so, while others you have to remove the CMOS battery or jump the CMOS jumper. You'll need to read your motherboard's manual for specific details on how though.

    Seems like a bios password has been set... ? What setup runs then refers to a password?
