LOST MY PASSWORD !
There are 5 levels of Passwords to lose.
For silly (non financial) passwords (like forums or face book, etc) use LASTPASS.
I never write down banking PW, ever, keep them in your head, best is to use the first letter of each word of long poem only you know, (never use dictionary words , as a password ever) (if possible use special characters like ! or # or %)
HP BIOS password resets. Best is not to use it. (if not doing CIA/NSA work, or other super secret work, don't use it)
First I am compelled to say that old HP computers, had 2 jumpers on the mother board, named:
BIOS used to be simple, and some PC's now have 8 updates just for UEFI, it's so buggy. (I say wait till 2020 when its bug free)
The wiki on UEFI reads like horror story, ever read it, I avoid it.
If you liked your BIOS keep it. Mine turned off.
Here are the facts:
A universally unique identifier is a 128-bit number used to identify information in computer systems. (kinda like the VIN number on cars , in USA but HUGE)
3.4028236692093846346337460743177e+38 , combo's (that is scientific notation)
Reads as a 3. with 38 zeros ofter it. in simple terms... no I'm not typing 38 zeros for anyone....ever.
(on your calc push 2 then the y/x key (below off key) then press 128 and enter. behold HUGE number,(Ti-30Xa- calc) also larger that Quadragintillion. used mostly for counting Atoms. and the like, 2n128 power.
Local Windows Password, I will not cover all 14 versions of windows. no.
But XP to W7 the passwond local can be hacked easy, google that, and at your own risk as most helpers online in this regard send you a nice virus. (no lie there are simple tool to fix this)
W8/10 was reEngineered to block such hacking (big time changes) It even hides the encrypted, code in secret place and then moves it time to time to prevent hacking. (BY DESIGN) They promised you better security and you got it.
I don't do hacks, but you can WEB SEARTH it. Windows 10 this is called the local Login and is not hackable. Reload W10 is the MS official cure.
The Microsoft live login , (if you said yes during the install) wille the Microsoft LIVE CLOUD login, to reset that , as millions have is there.
Cured only by going to microsoft live and doing request there. And this MS policy page.
If you down load EXE files to hack your PC, you will bet infected. (PC viruses)
