    Well I recently formatted and somewhere must have gone wrong. Which password does do screensavers use, and how can I change it? I thought it was the admin password. I checked and went to bios and had to enter password and it worked, but when I put the screensaver one on I kept getting invalid password. Perhaps my keyboard had done somethign weird, but I doubt it.

    The BIOS password has nothing to do with any password in Windows. The Windows screensaver password is the password for whatever user you're logged in as.
