    So after taking my Asus x550c laptop apart to fix the DC jack and rebuilding it, I can not logon to the initial screen. The password has never changed since I bought it so I'm baffled. I have tried doing it in safe mode with no luck. HELP!!!!

    You may have to try a windows recovery from within the bios settings or choose the recovery
    hidden partition

    Extra help:

    Press and hold the F2 button then click the power button. DO NOT RELEASE the F2 button until the BIOS screen display.

    Here's a link for obtaining a windows FULL VERSION/RECOVERY iso file it will allow you to download various versions.

    If all fails then you may have to reformat and reinstall.

    You can also obtain a version from ebay on dvd/

    Thanks for the help. I've taken it to a local shop that is going to try and recover the password. Other than that he will copy the hard drive then restore with Windows 10.

    Totally agree. Previous laptops I did. Have learnt my lesson but still wonder why password just stopped working.

    Just a thought!

    Your password may well have been stored in the cmos and you opening it up could have interrupted the power to the chip,I know it should have been held in the cmos chip because it's powered by the motherboard battery.
