    Did you steal a computer? Or how exactly did it happen that you forgot two passwords at the same time?

    heheh no, i did not steal a computer...i am a novice computer technician, and a friend requests me to reinstall her windows but we were surprised to see that a password was needed in order to reinstall, she told me that she previously reformatted her pc in another shop, but she cant contact the person who formatted her pc...so were stuck

    Usually you can reset the BIOS password of a desktop PC using a jumper on the motherboard or removing the battery. Read The Friendly Manual (the motherboard).

    You can download a special Linux floppy set/CD that can zero Windows passwords. (Or, buy some outrageously expensive program that does the same).
