Lost Windows 8 or 7 Password on ASUS Zenbook

September 24th, 2014 by Admin

Just bought a new Asus Zenbook which came preloaded with Windows 8 but you’ve lost the password? A forgotten password is no need for panic. As long as you have a password removal utility, you can get back into Windows 8 or Windows 7 Ultrabook in minutes. PCUnlocker is one of the best recovery tools that can help you get rid of forgotten Windows 8 or 7 password with ease. The following is a walkthrough of using a CD to reset Windows 8/7 admin password on ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A.

First of all, you need to make a PCUnlocker Live CD using a secondary computer, not your locked PC. Download the ISO image of PCUnlocker and burn it onto a blank CD with your CD burning program. If you don’t have one, try the freeware ISO2Disc or ImgBurn.

Once you’ve created a PCUnlocker Live CD, put it in the CD drive of your locked ASUS Zenbook laptop. Power on the machine and repeatedly press F2 key to enter the BIOS Setup. Go to the Security tab and disable the Secure Boot Control option. Navigate to the Boot tab, disable Fast Boot and enable Launch CSM. Press F10 to save and exit.


Press and hold ESC key to launch Boot Menu when the computer restarts. Select the CD drive from the list and press Enter to boot from it. After a while, the PCUnlocker program will launch and it shows you a list of local accounts for your Windows 8/7 installation.

Select the administrator account and click on Reset Password button. This will unlock / remove your ASUS Zenbook login password immediately. Take out the CD and reboot, you can then get back into your Windows 8/7 system without entering a password!


After enabling the CSM (Compatibility Support Module) on your ASUS Zenbook, the UEFI firmware will run as an emulated legacy BIOS. If you need to create a UEFI compatible CD, you need to use the Enterprise edition of PCUnlocker which can boot in UEFI mode, without requiring you to enable CSM support.

Forgot Windows 8 password and can’t get into your ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet? You don’t have to trash the computer, or even perform a dreaded factory restore. Here’s how you can bypass Windows 8 password on ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet, without losing any file or data.

How to Bypass Windows 8 Password on ASUS VivoTab Smart Tablet?

Before getting started, you need to find a password recovery utility that supports UEFI booting, because ASUS VivoTab Smart uses 32-bit UEFI firmware instead of legacy BIOS. Here we’ll use the Enterprise edition of PCUnlocker, which works with 32-bit/64-bit UEFI-based computers.

Use a secondary PC to download the full version of PCUnlocker Enterprise (trial version). Unzip the downloaded file and you’ll get a CD image called pcunlocker.iso, which needs to be burned onto a USB flash drive (or CD) with the ISO2Disc program. Remember to choose the GPT (required for UEFI boot) option.

After you’ve created a PCUnlocker USB drive, use a Micro USB adapter to connect it to your ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet. If your tablet is running, you must turn off the tablet.

While pressing the Power button, hold the volume down button until you get to the Boot Device Menu screen. From there select Enter Setup. In the BIOS Setup, select the Security tab, disable Secure Boot and Default Key Provisioning.


Navigate to the Boot tab. Under the Boot Option Priorities section, set your USB flash drive as the first boot option. Save your changes and exit BIOS.

The tablet will restart and boot from your created USB drive. After a while, you’ll get to the PCUnlocker program which automatically locates all Windows accounts on your tablet. Choose an account and click on Reset Password. It will bypass / remove your forgotten password in no time.

Now you’ve successfully bypassed Windows 8 password on your ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet. Disconnect the USB drive and you can then boot into Windows 8 without entering a password!
