Your best bet with a password reset is linux knoppix. Just search online for ways to use it with a different computer and get a copy on the cd.

  • This just happend to me yesterday and got it fixed...
    Restart your computer, first screen, hold down F8, a screen will pop up, select safe mode with the arrows and once that is done, you want to login as Administrator without a password and then hit ENTER. It will get into your computer in the safe mode and now you can go to the START menu n then to the CONTROL PANEL and go to user names and passwords and change your password.

When i try to log-on i put my pasword into the box and says "the user Profile Service service failed the log-on.User profile cannot be loaded. what do i do


To resolve this problem open yourself, follow these steps:

Right click Computer > Properties > Advanced system settings > Advanced tab > Under User Profiles, click Settings > In the User Profiles dialog box, select the profile that you want to delete > click Delete > Apply/OK.

Next open regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

Right-click the SID that you want to remove, and then click Delete.

Log on to the computer and create a new profile.

Alternatively, you can simply download and use this Fix It 50446 from Microsoft given on KB947215.

You may also want to check out ReProfiler. It is a freeware tool for manipulating user profiles on Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, Server 2003 & Server 2008.

I can not remember the password for the my toshiba satellite laptop a205. thanks please advise what can be done.


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

I assuming you are using a Windows operating system. There is no way to override a password if you have forgotten it. There are utilities that will allow you to reset the Administrator password to a blank password. Try the this popular utility:

Unfortunately you will need a computer to download this utility and create a boot CD but since you were able to post this I assume you do have access to a second computer.

My sons friend put a pass word on his lap top user password but for got it can some one help me remove it is on a toshiba satellite pro vista thanks


Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it?ll show Classic Login box. Now type ?Administrator? (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from ?Control Panel -> User Accounts?.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

if you are locked out of your computer,then a password recovery utility is available for you
check this out:see how to recover lost password?

Yes, when you switch the laptop on hold down the F8 key until you see a black screen with a list of white text, one of the options will be "Safe Mode", use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode (just safe mode, not safe mode with anything) and press return. The computer will start to the welcome screen and you will see a user-name you don't normally see called "Administrator". Click on Administrator and you will find it is not password protected (in spite of the fact that the Administrator account has more access to the system than any other account!) when the administrator profile loads it will ask you if you want to continue in safe mode and you do. click start, click control panel and click on users and groups now click on your son's user account and click remove password. now click back, click on the Administrator account and click change password, the old password should be left blank and you're new Administrator password should be something at least 7 letters, numbers and special characters (!@£$%^&*) long that you can remember. Now just restart and let it start up normally, once loaded advise your son to set a password he can remember or at least write down somewhere safe.
