cmos password or windows password?

if its a windows network password type in any name at top and click without adding a password on both parts click ok

for cmos one you have to move a jumper

do a google search for your board

If it's the log-on password window that's appearing during bootup, the registry tweak for getting rid of it is posted in the "Tips And Tricks" section.

You need to type in 00 00 00 00 after the 0000.

The correct entry is AutoLogon and not "autologin".

I'm surprise TweakUI didn't work either. That's usually pretty simple and reliable to do.

Other things to try are changing it to a blank password and using Windows Logon instead.
