Can not remember my password to my computer hoe can i log in

If you have other user account on it with admin rights can remove teh password or remove the account and make it again and save the files ..but if you are the only user and the user password is the issue need to reinstall the operation system cause there is no other way ..
If you have someone good on computers can try to hook the hard disk to another computer and locate the file with the password and change it or delete it , but I''m not sure about results..
Anyway hooking it up on another windows system may help you to retrieve important files on C drive ..and after that reinstall and format the C drive ..and I suggest not to use a password anymore unless really necessary ..
have a nice day , and please rate my helps my activity here ...

Hi how can i retrieve username and password


The default username and password are admin and admin. However, if you have changed, and you don't remember the username and password it can't be retrieved.
You need to reset the router. The procedure to reset:
There will be a small hole that takes about a paper clip wide probe. And press for 10 seconds while powered up. This will do a reset your router to factory.
Then username and password will be default admin and admin. Then you can access through on the browser.

Hope this helps.

Router Password forgotten

Pam, there is no way to retrieve just the password. You have to reset/reconfigure the router. Have you done router setups before? If not, I suggest you get someone to help you. If you want to try anyway, then have the printed manual next to you as you step through the sequence. Make sure you connect a PC to the router using an ethernet cable & confirm that the PC connects to the router. Admin is the user id. The factory default password is often "password" or "admin", but check on the manufacturer's site to be sure. Let me know if you have questions about any part of this.

Re set pass word on a router

The default password of the router is admin. If you have set up a password before, it will not recognize the default admin.Hold the reset button of the router for 10secs and it will retrieve the default admin...To change the default password, launch internet explorer (pc should be connected to the router hardwired), type on the address bar, will prompt for a user name and password, leave user name blank and password will be admin...It willl bring you to the set up page of the on the administration tab and from there you can create your new password for your router.

hope this helps,

It depends on what operating system your using, if it's windows XP then you should be able to press 'control' 'alt' and 'delete' twice when it comes up with the logon screen. This will then give you the option to log into an account called administrator. This will either have no password, or have the same password that you originally used to setup the account. From here you should be able to either change the password of the other account or, create a new account.
Failing that you can hang your son upside down from a window untill he remembers.

Parent forgot password on vista and only have access on limited account

Officially, there is no known way to retrieve an administrator password on vista, except by using the "forget password" feature when you are at the Login screen, and hope you remember the password reminder.

unofficially, however, there are plenty of tools out there that will do the trick as well, as long as you know the risks that are involved. you can do a google search for them. They can be dangerous to use, and in some cases, illegal to use depending on the country you hail from, so make sure you do your research, are comfortable with the possibility that you might damage or lock yourself out of your operating system with some of them, and that your country's laws allow the usage of them. (you have been warned :~))
