Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice


select safe mode with command prompt


Click start run type cmd press Enter

black screen should open DOS mode

this will vary depending on your operating system


type in net user username

For eg. If you want to change administrator password , type net user Administrator


it will prompt you to enter the new password

enter the new password and the password is changed


if this fails you will need to

you could download all of these or just one save them to a usb drive for later use if one fails to remove the password

Forgot my pass word to my email ,please help me create a new password


If you have web mail, i.e. gmail, yahoo, or some other email that you view in a web browser, where you enter your user name and password, there should be a "forgot password" link. Click that and it will tell you how to reset your password.

If you view your email in an email client, like Outlook, call your Internet Service Provider and ask them what to do to set a new password.

If you're at work, ask the computer administrator to help you.

There are several types of password lock ups.
If you forgot the password on the log on screen where it asks for the username and password, you need to do recovery on the computer with the recovery disc that comes with it.

If the lock up is upon powering on the computer where you can see a blue screen and asks for a password, it is a BIOS power on password and there is no way to bypass this. You need to send it to an authorized service provider to reset it.

If it is an HDD password upon boot up, sad to say, the HDD needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.
