Download EBCD [ http://www.prime-expert.com/ebcd/ ]

It contains a Windows password recovery option that will allow you to "blank" the administrator password, or change it altogether. You will need the ability to burn CD's to do this, then boot to the CD and follow the steps.

Someone used my computer and did not log out.


Hello Barbara,

You can use following options.

Option 1: Easy One
Press and hold the power button between 5 to 7 seconds
This will turn off the laptop
wait for 20 sec after shutting down
Start laptop again
Laptop is ready to use.

Option 2: Moderate one
Remove the power cord from laptop
take the battery out
put the battery back
start your computer

Option 3: Difficult one
At this point I am not sure which Windows are you using and how do you usually log-in to the system.
I am guessing you got a new laptop, with Windows 7 installed.

The computer might asking you to press Clt + Alt+ Del to unlock the computer.
You can also see there is small button on screen which says "Switch User"
click on "Switch User" button
It will then ask your user name and password
Use your username and password the one you usually use to log-in to the system.
once you are logged in
restart the computer
it might ask you "other users are log-in do you wana continue"
press enter
the computer will restart and now you can use it as normal as before.

Hope these options might help

Thank you

How to reset password


Try logging in without a password (hit enter). It just may be the screen saver locking it.
Ask if anybody (that has access to system) if they set a password.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Lost Windows password:


  • Log in as Administrator (try safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Again no password.
  • Login as other user (if other user is availible) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

When i turn on my laptop it ask for a password in blue and then there is a blinking curser and black screen it wont do anything after that unless i press f2 reapeatedly or f12 but i cant fix nothing on the...


There are two types of password:
1. BIOS password. To remove the BIOS password, the solution is, remove the BIOS battery. Location of the BIOS battery, the bottom of the laptop. So you have to unscrew the bottom of the laptop, find the BIOS battery and release approximately 7 seconds, then plug it back. Then, turn on the laptop, enter the BIOS by pressing F2, do the setting the date, time, etc.

2. Password Log on. When turning on the laptop, and log on, then we are asked to enter a password, but we never give password to log on. However, when we enter the password, always fails, it means the virus-infected operating system (operating system has been controlled by a virus). These cases often I meet, the Windows XP operating system is infected with the virus. The solution is to reinstall the operating system. Repair operating system, or breaking into password virus, I've tried, but always failed. So, the best solution is to reinstall the operating system.

If you are using Windows 7, you can fix with, insert the Windows operating system CD, then boot from the CD Room. Solutions you can do:

1.
Boot from CD Room, select Next - select Repair your computer - Next - select System Image Recovery

2. Boot from CD Room - select Next - select Install now - check the "I accept the license terms" - Next - select Custom (advanced). Then, select the drive where you installed windows - Next. Wait for your operating system install process to complete. Then enter your user name, etc.

After entering the desktop, don't open drive C, D, E, F, because the drive is still infected with the virus. All you have to do is, connect your laptop to the Internet, download anti-virus. You can use free anti-virus (Avira or AVG), then anti-virus updates. After the update is complete, do a virus scan, drive C, D, E, F. If a virus is detected, Primary action = repair, Secondary action = delete.


After drive C, D, E, F clean from viruses, you can open the drive C, D, E, F. You don't have to worry about losing data, because Windows 7, will backup your data in a folder Windows.old. In Windows.old folder, there are three folders: Program files, Users, Windows. Data stored in My Documents, can be found in the Users folder.
