: from an article I read which suggested a few words they
: were no help, but removing the battery did the trick.
: Remember you will lose all the bios info if you do that

: you have. I also had the disconect the power before it
: would forget everything and let me in.
: The article was in PC World Feb 99- the words were :
: AMI,AWARD SW,password and cmos. Try case variations.
: I hope you don't have to resort to this but if you do I
: hope this helps.

: : Hello.

: : Compaq, but we need to get access to the computer.
: : ( The colleague is on vacation and unreachable. )
: : So I wonder if there is any master password there
: : to crack both passwords ?

Just a comment to all. If you don't know it, and
you need it. Try the obvious. "Compaq", "Deskpro",
"DeskPro", "DesqPro", "Desqpro", etc. As well as
info you know about the PC's user/owner. Most
people use ordinary passwords. Complicated or
encrypted types are to big and difficult to try
to remember and type all of the time. Also try
586589, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW,
and others like that. Good luck...
