YOU NEED TO GET INTO THE C-MODE SETUP TO DELETE ANY PASSWORD AND USER NAME. go to www.toshiba.com look for the support and go there. the fee they charge may be a whole lot less that bringing it to a shop.

BUT--this is a tricky issue..you need to contact toshiba as to the keys to get into C-Mode setup to do this.

the message referes to the fact that a removable drive (CD ) or ( mass storage device) was taken out before the computer could close out that program properly. It is looking for it to close it right.

I want to reset the password on my US Cellular wi-fi hotspot device.


Hi,

You can refer :
http://www.uscellular.com/uscellular/pdf/schlc11-user-manual.pdf

Or
To change the network key (password), open a web browser and type this address: http://mifi.admin/ in the url search bar. This is your mobile hotspot's admin page. If you see a "Welcome"-screen on this page with a "Login password" field, click cancel at the bottom of the page and then "Ok" to cancel the setup wizard. Log in by entering "admin" in the box in the top-right corner and clicking "Login". Click on the "WiFi" link at the top of the screen, this will open the WiFi settings page. You can change the network name (SSID) and network key (password). Click apply to save any changes made. After saving the changes your mobile hotspot will reboot and you will need to select the new wireless network or enter your new network password in order to connect to the mobile hotspot.

Thanks

Reset Windows 7 Password


Anyone can forget a password. Okay you may think it will never happen to you, but think again, because it may just happen. Forgetting your user account password is no big deal providing you have taken the necessary precautions to create a Password Reset Disk.<br /> Sadly, if you haven't created a <b>Password Reset Disk</b> for your Windows operating system then gaining access to your PC will become a nightmare. I'm not saying that it is impossible, because it isn't. However, this tutorial refers to resetting your user account password with the aid of your <b>Windows Password Reset Disk</b>.<br /> The first you will know about your password being wrong is when you type the password in at boot up and a message appears telling you that <i><b>The User Name or Password is Incorrect</b></i>.

Reset aol password


AOL is a massive American internet service and multimedia company. One of the main services that AOL provides for its users is access to a user-friendly email server. This server can be used to send and receive emails to other accounts around the world. However, just like your keys, your wallet and the remote, passwords to email addresses can easily be lost. When this happens, you can go onto the Internet service and retrieve your lost AOL password without having the change it.

Go to aol.com. Find the login box on the main page. Click on the "forgot password" link, which is underneath the login box. Type in the user information that you do know. This will be your current email address as well as your name as it appears on the AOL billing information. Type in the last four digits of your billing credit card for further verification. Click on the "next" button at the bottom of the screen. Enter an alternative email address where you can retrieve your password. Press "submit." Retrieve your AOL password from the alternate email address you entered. How to Change an AOL Password

OMG! got a problem w/ my temporary password @ Kp! cant activate it!??!!! how do i log in! huhuhu


If you are talking abou the user name and assword on login screen then you need to restart computer and start tapping F8 key on keyboard, you will get Advanced boot option, stop pressing the F8 key, you need to select safe mode with the help of up and down arrow keys on keyboard, hit enter on Admin username if it ask then click on start>control panel>user name and then select your user name and change the password, restart your computer and then enter the new password.

* If you do not find user name under control panel then look for classic view on top left corner of the screen and click on it.

Hope this would fix the issue.

Power off the system, then power it back on and see if you can get to the desktop. If you can, then go to the screen saver settings and uncheck the "On resume, password protect" check box.

If you cannot boot into windows, then power off again, the power on and tap F8 to get the Windows Startup menu, select SAFE MODE and see if you get a login prompt, if you do select the username ADMIN with a blank password and see if you can get to Windows. If you do, go to control panel, user Accounts and remove the password from the user account.

If none of that works, then here is a last ditch alternative.

I reset my toshiba laptop, (windows vista) and it added a password, i used fix- it utilities 8


if you did not put a password then try just hitting Enter or Return on the password line

Usually your user name will do or "Administrator" (note the capitals letters)

password line will be blank

if all fails then try goin into safe mode by tapping F8 key while booting up computer and selecting Administrator, then once inside the computer you can remove the password from control panel / User account section.

My laptop has a password and i typed in the password that it should bet yet it isnt working, as soon as i turn the computer on it comes to a screen saying enter passowrd. My laptop is an acer travelmate...


Is this computer a member of a domain or just local?
If a domain member, contact your administrator to reset the password for you.

If local (or in a workgroup)
Log in as a local administrator, then you may be able to reset your password.

When logging in, type, Administrator as the user name and type in your password (if you remember). Try password as blank first if you haven't set a password. Default password is usually 12345

Once logged in:

Click Start, right-click My Computer, select Manage.
Under Computer Management --> Expand System Tools --> Local Users and Groups, the select Users folder.

Locate your user name on the right pane, right-click on your username, then select Set Password. Change your password.

Pls let me know if this solution worked for you.
