In Vista Business , I have an admin account and a standard user account.When I turn on computer a blank (black ) screen comes on and asks for a system password in a dos like window.

Re: Vista asks for password in dos like window
Maybe someone who has access to your computer has set a password in the BIOS. .. You can confirm this by accessing the BIOS and checking to see if a password has been set for User .. If you can't access the BIOS without a password then a password has also been set for that .. When you have confirmed that a BIOS password has been set then, since you don't know the password you will need to reset the BIOS.
