have a netbook but no passwords when turned on windows asks for password


you can try to see if they have set an administrator password, start the computer in safe mode (Hold down F8 when booting) and when it boots click on the administrator logon icon, if there is no password (as there sometimes isn't) you can log on and go to the user control in control panel and create a new user. then re-start and logon using the new account you created.

I have a Dell latitude e4310 laptop my 10 year old has somehow changed the password and locked my computer. Can you please help


If you haven't set a password for the Administrator account you could try to log in as an Administrator then change your password back. First you need to change how users log on.

1. Click Start
2. Click Settings
3. Click Control Panel
4. Click User Accounts
5. Click Change the way users log on or off
6. Deselect Use the Welcome screen
7. Click Apply options

Exit Control Panel. Then Restart computer, hold F8 when rebooting and choose SafeMode when prompted.

When Log on Prompt appears type in Administrator as user and leave password blank ( this is the Windows default password)

This will let you boot into Windows where you can go back to Control Panel, User Accounts and change your account password.

Then just reboot normally and enter new password.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

I WANT TO LOG IN TOSHIBA TECRA 550CDT BUT I HAVE FORGOTTEN MY PASSWORD


start your computer in "safe mode" :

  1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.

    Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, click the arrow next to the Lock button eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c.png, and then click Restart.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.

    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.

  3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option you want, and then press ENTER. For more information about options, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).

  4. Log on to your computer with a user account that has administrator rights.

Depending on you operating system i.e. windows XP, 7 etc. you may not have a "lock" button described in STEP 1, just restart while holding down F8, once you are in safe mode you can go in to Administrator or any other account and reset your password

how to unlock computer passwords


I don't know weather you're doing this for legal purposses, at least I assume you are and as a result I will also assume you have direct access to the computer in question. An easy way to get access to a computer without knowing the users password would be to boot it in safe mode and just use the Administrator account.
1. Shut down the computer
2. Press F8 when windows screen appears
3. From the list, go to the option Microsoft Windows using your keyboard
4. Instead of pressing the Enter key, press the F8 key again to display the Safe Mode boot screen.
5. Choose Safe Mode from the list and press the Enter key.
6. You will be taken to the log in screen that will display the Administrator account icon among your other current account's.

From here you can log into the Admin account without having to enter a password and can fully use the computer.
