    Do you know how to Reset the CMOS Jumpers on the Mainboard.

    The other way would be to take out the Mainboard Battery for about 15-20Mins then put it back in.

    Natually power Off everything First.

    That doesn't do much for the Windows admin password.

    Edited: jmwills beat me to it.
