I have a Fujitsu T series Lifebook, in which I changed the system password from the boot menu, so in order to boot, I would have to put in my password, then it would bring me to my windows accounts and passwords. Then I forgot the password. In order to boot windows I need the password. Is there any way I can get around the password or something?  Thanks guys!

I can't help you recover the password because of terms of service of Bleeping Computer but you can search Google with the following and see what it gets you.

 

fujitsu lifebook t series bios password reset

 

Edit: If it is the hard drive password and not the BIOS password, you are out of luck unless you want to spend money on a professional data recover service and that might not work. BIOS passwords are pretty much useless for protecting user info.

I think it said it was the system password. I forgot if I went through the bios menu to get to it though.

I will never understand pass wording the bios, locks you out of fixing issues and it is near impossible to fix a password issue on a laptop without disassembling it

When you type in a wrong password three times does it throw out an alphanumeric code? Some like dell call the BIOS password the system password. This could very well be a hard drive password. The easiest way to tell would be to attach the drive to another computer and see if data can be read from it.
