Together we can Fix this problem of yours. The first step in getting you Fixed is to follow my instruction in the paragraph below.

When you are at the login password screen, called the password challenge interface, you can click on the text above the password entry area that reads: "Hint" along with some other verbiage. This will bring up next to your pointer, the hint you had entered when you created your password. That should help you to recall your password.

Let me know, using the Comment Box Below if this helps you login or not, so we can take you to the next step if needed. The Hint answer is just the first thing we'll try. I'll work with you until this is Fixed so long as you will work with me to get this Fixed.

    Just to be certain, you have checked that you do not have Caps Lock on of course.

    The only way to get around this is to log on in Safe Mode. Boot up your laptop cold start. While it is starting up, press the F8 key like a piano key until you get the Safe Mode boot up screen. Bootup in Safe Mode, acknowledge your OS by pressing enter next. When you get to the logon password challenge, you will want to use the Admin user name. The password for the Admin is most often 'blank', empty, so leave it blank and press enter. If that fails the common password is 'admin' itself. That should work if the empty password does not work.

    Once you are in a desktop environment, you want to go to "Control Panel and click on Users or User Accounts. Once in the user accounts click on your id and thereafter select remove password. Once the password is removed you can go back and create a new, as in your old, password. Don't select change password. Its safer to remove the password and then later create a new password which would be your old password.

    If, you cannot log in to the Admin account at all, then you will be compelled to contact the Service Center that worked on your machine to obtain the Admin password they have set.

    I have this information below for you to use to telephone. Often in a case such as yours they will want information to verify you are who you are and that they are giving a password to the right person.
    So have any information handy related to the work that was just done on your laptop.

Check your spam filter - alot of things end up there. If you accidently typed in your gmail address incorrectly, you'll never get it so you'll have to create a new account.

Twice in the last two days you said you were resetting my password via email. Don't where you sent it but I NEVER received it.( email:

Password to what/where? Your password to FixYa obviously works.

Did FixYa send you email saying we were resetting your password? Or is the email from someone else? Perhaps from a website you registered using another email address?

When i log in my password it says incorrect password. Iv tried to reset my password. On the face book screen it says a password code was sent to my e-mail. But when i check my e-mail address its not there....

there is a way to have it sent to another email; address. at the login screen, click "forgot your password?" at the next scree, use the third option to "Enter your name and a friend's name." Do this, and make sure that you spell each name as it appears in facebook. then you'll be taken to a page that says "Reset Your Password?" and it should show the email address you have linked to the account. Click the "No longer have access to these?" option. then it will ask for your new email and to confirm it. You will then be asked a security question. Enter this, and it will say an email has been sent to the new email you provided. hope this helps.
