Password Cracking

by MikeyV311 In reply to forgot password my sony v ...

If it's a windows PW you forgot, this will be easy.
As you turn on your laptop and windows loads, hold down "F8" to allow yourself into safemode. When logged on you can delete and create new passwords and accounts as you choose. If the PW has been set in the Laptop's BIOS, a manual BIOS reset might be the only thing that will help you.

That sounds like you set the power on password

by Tig2 In reply to Forgot password Sony vaio ...

If that is the case, you have a bigger problem. You won't go past that password set in BIOS.

I have never heard a crack for that- it is outside of the OS and lives at the hardware level.

Try REALLY hard to remember the password if this is the case!

Something SMELLS here.

One does not "accidently" set the BIOS password, which is a user option, and then forget not only that he did it but also what he set it to.

Note that this person does not know what kind of password, i.e. BIOS or OS, he's being asked to provide.

Consider that the legitimate owner of this portable may have deliberately set a BIOS password, as an additional level of security, the machine has been stolen, and the current "owner," who is now stuck with an unusable machine, is looking to us for help.
