For this, we have collected the most used Lenovo Computer password lost troubles and satisfactory solutions for you.<br /><b>Types of passwords for Lenovo ThinkPad Laptop</b><br />There are four kinds of passwords we will talk about Lenovo ThinkPad computer and the password reset solutions:<br /> <ul> <li>1&gt; Windows logon Password (Administrator, Domain and User account)</li> <li>2&gt; Supervisor Password</li> <li>3&gt; Hard Disk Password (Master and User)</li> <li>4&gt; Power-On Password</li></ul><br /> 1&gt;Windows logon Password for Lenovo ThinkPadWindows logon password for Lenovo ThinkPad is used to keep personal information private and we are always create some administrator or user accounts on Windows 7/Vista/XP PC and also domain admin or AD accounts on Windows Server 2000/2003(R2)/2008(R2). It will be a big besetment when you lost or misplaced the passwords of those accounts. However, with some easily password recovery ways, it is possible to re-access your Windows system with no damage of the data.<br /><b>Reset Lenovo ThinkPad Password with Password Reset Disk</b><br />If you are a cautious user, then you should have created a password reset disk for your Lenovo ThinkPad.

The administrator can use the master password to get access to the hard drive even if a user has changed the user Hard drive password.<br /><b>Reset Forgotten Hard Drive Password</b><br />If the user's Hard drive password has been forgotten, check whether a master Hard drive password has been set. If it has, it can be used for access to the hard drive. If no master Hard drive password is available, or if the administrator forgets the master Hard drive password, then the hard drive must be replaced. For this instance you just need ask help from your computer manufacturer to reset forgotten HDD password.<br /> 4&gt; Power-On Password for Lenovo ThinkPadAn Lenovo ThinkPad Power-on password protects the system from being powered on by an unauthorized person. When it has been set, a prompt will appear during the system start up, and the Power-on password must be entered before an operating system can be booted.<br /><b>Reset Forgotten Power-on Password</b><br />If the Power-on password is forgotten and the Supervisor password is known, simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility and reset the Power-on password, otherwise try the following:<br />1.Power off the Lenovo ThinkPad computer<br />2.Remove the battery pack<br />3.Remove the backup battery<br />4. Please power on the computer and wait till the POST ends. If the password prompt does not appear then the Power-on password has been reset.<br />5.Reinstall the backup battery and the battery pack.<br /><b>Note:</b><span> </span>Some ThinkPad systems have the ability to reset the Power-on passwords in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a Supervisor password has been set.<br /></span>

How to Password Protect your Windows 7?


Is you computer safe enough? Does your <b>Windows 7 ask for a login password</b> when you start your PC? It should. If not, a logon password must be created as soon as possible. This article will tell you how to make a user login password on Win7. It is easy and usually takes less than a few minutes<br /> It is a big security concern if you do not <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-windows-7-logon-password/"><b>have a Windows 7 logon password</b></a>. Without a password, anyone in your office or home has full and unrestricted access to everything on your PC. Fortunately, creating a <b>new Windows 7 login password</b> is very simple.<br /> <b>Note:</b> If you're trying to <b>create a new Windows 7 user password</b> because you've forgotten yours and can't get in to Win7, see <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/forgot-windows-7-password/"><b>how to recover a forgotten Windows 7 Password</b></a>.<br /> Follow the steps below to create a password for your Windows 7 User account: Here's How: <b>1</b>. Click on <b>'Start</b>' and then '<b>Control Panel</b>'.<br /><img src="start-control-panel-windows7.jpg" /> <b>2</b>. Click on the '<b>User Accounts and Family Safety'</b> link.<br /><img src="user-accounts-and-family-safety.jpg" /> <b>Note:</b> If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on the <b>User Accounts icon</b> and proceed to Step 4. In my computer, my win7 user name is Andy. So I click its icon.<br /><img src="click-on-user-accounts-icon-windows7.jpg" /> <b>3</b>. Click <b>'change your windows password'</b> on the <b>'User Accounts'</b> area.<br /><img src="change-your-windows-7-password.jpg" /> <b>4</b>. In the '<b>Make changes to your user account</b>' area of the User Accounts window, click the '<b>Create a password for your account'</b> link.<br /><img src="create-a-password-for-your-windows7-account.jpg" /> <b>5</b>. In the first two asterisk text boxes, enter the password you want to start using. Entering the password twice helps to make sure that you typed your new logon password correctly.<br /> In this example I use my birthday as my logon password. But I advise you not to use your birthday as a new password because it is easy to guess. You should <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-a-strong-password/"><b>create a strong password</b></a>.<br /><img src="create-a-new-windows-7-logon-password.jpg" /> <b>6</b>. In the final text box, you're asked to Type a <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/windows-7-logon-password-hint/"><b>password hint</b></a>. This step is optional but I highly recommend that you use it. If you try logging in to Windows 7 but enter the wrong password, this hint will pop up, hopefully jogging your memory.<br /> <b>7</b>. Click the <b>'Create password'</b> button to confirm your new password.<br /> <b>8</b>. After creating a new password, you will be returned to the User Accounts window. Now you can see the user account 'Andy' has been <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-password-to-protect-your-user-account-on-windows-7-beta/"><b>password protected</b></a>.<br /><a href="http://www.windows7password.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/user-password-protected-windows-7-big.jpg"><img src="user-password-protected-windows-7.jpg" /></a><br /><br /> <b>9</b>. Now that your Windows 7 account has a password setup, you must use this password to log on to Windows 7 from this point forward.<br /> <b>Tips:</b> You may want to know How to <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/automatically-login-windows-7-without-typing-user-password/">Automatically Login Windows 7 Without Typing User Password</a>.<br /> <b><img src="create-a-windows-7-password-reset-disk.jpg" />10</b>. <b>Create a Windows 7 password reset disk</b>. While not a required part of creating a new password, I highly recommend that you do this. A password reset disk will protect you from the consequences of forgetting your new Windows 7 password. If you <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/forgot-windows-7-password/"><b>lost Windows 7 account password</b></a> and you don't have created a password reset disk, you can use <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/"><b>this efficient and safe tool</b></a>.<br /> Tips: Not a Windows 7 user? Still Using XP or Vista? Don't have a password protected account on other Windows Versions?
