Default Re: Laptop Password

Dear MetalOwns:

I will try again to see if I can get in through safe mode by pressing F8, and will let you know through the forum.

Thanks,

Dear EricB:

Pointsec may be designed to prevent break-in, but I am sure techies would have figured out a way to by-pass that or obtina the pwd.

Thanks for your help.

Ah yeah that's true. But he was asking about how to get the username and password for the account, so I assumed that either there was no BIOS password, or that he had somehow already managed to get that.

Will try to boot once again through safe mode. Will get back with you on the outcome. Thanks!

I am not sure about the BIOS pwd. Will try once again to see if I can go into BIOS setup. I thought I did it and couldn't get in. Will double check. Thanks!
