I can't signon


Sign on to what? Your computer? If you ever could "sign in" and not now, possibly your user profile became corrupted. It is not too hard to create a new user profile. My instincts are that this is not the problem, however.

Are you trying to log in to your account or some other person's account. The last user of the computer typically has their log in screen retained. Check USER ACCOUNTS on the computer via the control panel. Can anyone else log in? Has an administrator assigned a password to you computer account?

If you can not sign on because you set up a password and can not recall it, you likely would have to use a password recovery disc.

A remarkable number of times, if there is a user name and password, the user fails to log on because they either type their password in as their user name or the are using capitals and the password was lower case. And, of course, to sign in, you use your user name and your password. If this is a home system, you may not even have a password on the system and the problem may be something else.

It would be helpful to know the computer manufacturer and model number and operating system when addressing these questions.

Can't unlock


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password.

I want to change my network password


Hi

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Type the router's URL into your web browser. To access and change any settings on your router, you must log into the router's URL. This will allow your computer to communicate with the router and access the router's main page. When accessing the router's URL, use the same computer that was used to install the router. If you do not know the router's URL, look for this information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website. After entering the URL into the web browser's address bar, press "Enter" or click the "Go" button on the browser.
Input the router's default username and password. Once you enter the router's URL into your web browser, a dialog box will appear requiring you to input the router's username and password. (Note that this password is not the network password.) Unless you have previously changed the router's username and password, input the default ones. Many browsers have the default username of "admin" and have the password set as "password" or have no password at all. To find out your router's username and password, check the documentation that came with your router or check the manufacturer's website. Click "OK" to proceed to the router's main page.
Access the router's security settings. Depending on your brand of router, there will be tabs or links on the router's main page. One of these will contain the page for changing your security settings. Find and click the link or tab. This page will contain several textboxes, one of which will contain the SSID (name of the network) and two textboxes for changing the network password.
Select an encryption type and change the network password. Most new routers offer WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) security or WPA security. To create a password using letters and/or numbers, you must choose the WPA security setting. Change the network password by typing in a new password in the two textboxes. When you are finished, click "OK."
Save your changes and log out. After changing the network password, you must click "Save" or "Apply" to keep the password change. Log out of the router by clicking the "Logout" or "Exit" link on the router's main page. If you leave the main page open for a certain period of time, you may automatically be logged out of the router.

This issue might occur permissions are not set properly for the C Drive.

Make sure that you are logged in as Administrator.

To take ownership of C Drive, follow these steps:

1. Right-click the C Drive and then click Properties.

2. Click the Security tab.

3. Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

4. In the Name list, click your user name, or click Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group.

5. Click on Edit and then put a check mark against "Replace all existing inheritable permissions on all descendants with inheritable permissions from this object".

6. Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message:

This will replace explicitly defined permissions on all descendants of this object with inheritable permissions from C-Drive (C:).
Do you wish to continue?

7. Once the permissions are replaced, click on Ok.

8. Check if you are able to copy, paste or delete any documents now.

If the above steps fail then you may also want to disable UAC and check if that helps.

1. Click Start, type msconfig in the start search box, and then press Enter.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

2. Click the Tools tab.

3. Click Disable UAC and then click Launch.

4. A command window appears, and shortly thereafter, a notification bubble appears informing you that UAC is disabled.

5. Click Ok and restart your computer to apply the change.

Please let me know if it helps.

You might not be logged in with Administrator user id. To make sure you are part of admin group. Go to Start->Run-> type "control userpasswords2" and hit enter. Check you user name and on the right side check your group it should be administrators.

If not login with administrator user id and password and add your user to administrators group.

Follow the link to add user to admin group

Left my old company and took my personal computer with me. However I can't get it to work because everything is lock out by old company and they won't remove their rights??


Hi,

You have two options that may work. Can you log in with your old username and password to the system? If so, and if you have sufficient rights with that user account, you can remove the domain and join a work group. **Before doing that, create an administrator account that you know the username and password for.

The second thing is to see If you can log in locally with that administrator account? If so, then you can access anything on the hard drive, and you can change the domain to a work group. On the log in screen, you should see username, password, and domain. Change the domain to the local system, and use administrator to log in, if you are lucky, the password could be blank. Or maybe (not likely though, they would give you that password. If not there are ways to hack it.

If you get to that point, or if you need assistance trying my suggestions, please let me know.
Thanks
