I have a sony vaio flat screen computer and I lost My administrator password, so I want to reset my computer and start all over again.


I believe that you can no longer reset your admin password because you will still need for a password reset. Best option is to delete that account in a safe mode and here's how.

1. restart your pc
2. press f5 before the windows logo appear
3. put it on a safe mode to run windows
4. Press start menu on the bottom left
5. go to control panel
6. go to user accounts
7. delete account
8. Create another acount

Hope this helps.

I have a pawn shop and ended up with a sony vaio vgn-cr507e. The previous user had a user name password, can this be reset and how? I am not a computer tech by any means, or should I take it somewhere to be done. Thank You

Most computer shops as well as the "Geek Squad" have a small program called Samurai Password reset. It takes less than 10 minutes and will clear all passwords for all operating systems. I am not sure what they charge for the service but it is not a big deal. This program os designed to clear User account passwords and not BIOS or startup passwords.

I can not reset my windows password

This only works if your account isn't already the "Administrator" account. It will work if your account is just an account with administrator rights.
Boot into Safe Mode, log in as Administrator, change your password:
1) Turn off your computer.
2) Turn it back on while repeatedly tapping the "F8" key.
3) Use your arrow keys to select the option to boot to Safe Mode and press Enter.
4) In Safe Mode, log in as the Administrator
5) Open the Control Panel
6) Go to User Accounts
7) Click on your account
8) Click on "Change the password"
