    Question how to set system password

    hi everyone

    my question is how to set up system password.

    i am not talking about users password or admin password or bios password,

    in my college an old system asks for password after booting and before welcome screen, and my lab admin told me that it is the system password,

    please tell me how to set up system password,

    Thats "system password" is actually user password.
    Just type control user passwords at run. Select the desired user name and change the password. You can change passwords of other accounts IF you're the admin.

    ho no no! i am sure it is not user password, because the small window which appears has only one text box, in which password is entered, in the title bar it is written as ENTER THE PASSWORD,

    { there is no text box for entering user name, }

    after entering the password, then we get the login dialog box in which we enter our login name and our password,

    why no posts, waiting for solution,
    is there any thing to do with registry or system files,

    That is not related with Windows so no chance of registry trick etc.

    That is a BIOS setting & it is known as User Password or System password or Supervisor Password. The only thing for which u shud take care is, just set the option that password shud b asked everytime instead of asked only when u enter in BIOS. U can find these settings in BIOS.
    Now everytime u will boot ur computer, ur system will ask u to enter a password.
    After that u can see a welcome screen or dual boot option if u have dual boot.

    Depending on your BIOS find the settings. (I know Award Bios setting) :
    Press DEL key when booting up, When the Bios menu comes goto :
    Main Menu > Bios Features > Security Option
    Change it to System
    Now Set a User password as well as Supervisor password and a user can use any of these passwords to boot the system.
    The one using Supervisor password can change Bios settings while the one using User password cannot.

    For other Bios, find menu option: Security or something like this..
