I am not exactly sure how to crack the password (other than buying a password cracker which could be expensive). You can buy a hard drive case and put the hard drive in it and access them that way.
If you don't know what you are doing though, I would find a friend that knows conputers well enough to do it.

I can't get in my smartab srff77 I put a password in an can't remember what it was


I am unaware of a password bypass, however if you perform a hard reset (loses your data) you should be able to gain access to your tablet again

Lost password to Windows 7, XP, Vista, 2000, 2003 ?


1) Hope you learn from your mistakes for the next time. Write the password down and put it in a safe place... and remember where you put it. Or better yet, use a password that makes sense to you... Or the best of all, create a Password Reset Disk (details abou this here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305)

2) The "brute force" alternative: Re-install Windows from its installation CD/DVD (which I hope you didn't lose too). This will erase all programs and files you have in your computer. You'll need your Product Key (you have this, right). You may want to try to do an "update previous instalation" (which will keep your programs and files), but it may not remove the password at all.

3) Get a password recovery tool (for free, if possible). Many Windows versions (especially XP) do not like if you just 'delete' the password from an account, like some programs can do. If you do this you may lose access to many files and programs. This a security feature embedded in Windows.

a) Ophcrack: This Windows password cracker is by far the best free Windows password recovery tool available. It's fast and easy enough for a first time password cracker with a basic knowledge of Windows.
With Ophcrack, you don't need any access to Windows to be able to recover your lost passwords. Simply visit the site, download the free ISO image, burn it to a CD and boot from the CD. The Ophcrack program starts, locates the Windows user accounts, and proceeds to recover (crack) the passwords - all automatically (access to files and programs will be kept, so you will regain full access to the computer).
In a test on a Windows 7 PC, Ophcrack recovered the 10-character password to an administrator account in 40 seconds. Ophcrack supports Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.
Download Ophcrack from here (choose the correct OS): http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd

b) Offline NT Password & Registry Editor: This one works basically by erasing your Windows password instead of recovering it (ths is where you can lose access to some files and programs). You can then simply log in to your account without entering a password.
Like Ophcrack, you boot to a burned CD created with the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor ISO file.
If you like this "password deleting" strategy then I highly recommend this program. Offline NT Password & Registry Editor works basically the same way as PC Login Now, but this program is free.
I tried Offline NT Password & Registry Editor on a Windows XP PC and it worked immediately without problem. It should work equally well with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 2000, and Windows NT.

There are some other utilities out there, but finding FREE ones that actually work is time consuming. I'll post them here as I can.

Can't remember password and it won't let me change it


You cannot change the password without entering the old one. And you cannot access Windows without it.
Copy all your data off and put a new OS on the drive.

How can i remove advent ert2250 bios password


Hello there,
To remove the bios password from you advent laptop, Power off the computer and make sure that it is unplugged. Open up your computer case. You need physical access to the motherboard to complete this procedure. Find a circular, (mostly) silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is the CMOS battery. CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery and leave it out for about 120 seconds then put a piece of wire or metal between the battery contacts. This will remove the bios password stored.. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. (See Warnings) Set the battery back into place and power on the computer. The computer should then warn you that the CMOS configuration could not be found. You can either reconfigure it yourself or restore defaults. Restoring the default configuration should be fine. You will notice that the BIOS password has been cleared and you can boot without it. You may reset the BIOS password to something else by going into the BIOS configuration and setting a new User Password (The Supervisor Password controls access to the BIOS, NOT the computer!)
All the best. Elect_Comp

My micro sd memory kingston brand prompted for a password to unlock me and I can not put it on another computer and it asks me password for access and I can not remember the password I can do desbloquera...


The password is a user created password. Same as you would password a drive. Without access to the card due to not having the password their is no was to get to the password list file hidden on the card. Your choice remain to keep trying passwords until you remember the correct one, or reformat the card and not put a password on it which you will lose all of your data unfortunatly.

Hello i cant remember my user password and i would like to know how to access the main database so i can change the administrators password so i can access my laptop. its advent tl60 how do i do this?


there is no "Database" with the passwords. There are only a couple option to reset the admin password. If you have the Windows installation disk you can insert that and boot into that and change the admin password from there, or use "The Ultimate Boot Disk" it has a windows password change utility on it. You will need to burn that disk on a computer that you can log into though. That file is locked and not visible while windows is running by the way, so this has to be done from outside of windows.
