I had password on my pc both when it startsup and while entering into bios.But once i forgot the password and was not able to open the pc. So i just opend the cabinet and removed the jumper and put it on the pins for fifteen seconds which removes password .Then i put the jumper as it was and swiched on the system.The password was gone.I entered the cmos and put the password again. I gave password for both startup and for entering cmos.The one which i gave for startup is not working .I mean its not asking pasword at startup.The one which i gave at cmos is working.Please tell me how can i put the password at startup again.

So you can get into Windows right? To enable password protection on your user account go to Control Panel -> User Accounts. Click your username and click "create a password".

In BIOS, you should have two passwords: Admin/Supervisor (for entering BIOS/CMOS to make changes) and System/User (to boot machine). In your case, it's the System/User password that needs to be set. If you see a setting for "Prompt Every at Every Boot", but sure to enable it.

Recheck the jumper position.

Then try to remove the System/User password, save changes, reboot. Go back to BIOS, set the System/User password, save changes, reboot.

If that doesn't fix it, what brand is the computer and/or motherboard?

what i did when i forgot the password i opened the cabinet and took out the jumper from the first two pins and placed it over the two pins which were adjacent to it referring to my motherboard manual for few seconds and put it back again.And now i have this problem.Ok i will try to remove it and put it back again and try to reset the password.
