  • Hi,

    I believe this would be against the rules to help in this case.

    Why don't you ask the person who put the password. He/she might be able to help you.

  • Hello,

    The Windows Desktop Perfmon and Diagnostic tools forum is to discuss performance monitor (perfmon), resource monitor (resmon), and task manager, focusing on HOW-TO, Errors/Problems, and usage scenarios.

    As the question is off topic here, I am moving it to the Where is the Forum... forum.

  • You have a coin-like battery on Motherboard.

    Take it out, wait for a couple of minutes, hit power button few times, put back the battery and start the PC.

    This should work.
