I forgot the password to the Admin. I use Vista

Ok this is what i'm trying to do.

I'm trying to install a Wireless-G PCI Adapter onto my nieces computer. I thought this would be easy but I've run into some problems 1st problem: My niece doesn't remember the Admin Pswd (but I can log in as other users, no pswd set up),
2nd problem: Her CD Drive doesn't work (needs drivers therefore I can't use an Installation CD).
Problem 3: If I were to do a recovery or restoration; How do I do that? if I can't run anything on the CD-rom.

Please help...I'm not very technical but I'll try to do what you suggest.
Your help is appreciated : )

Forgot password


If you forgot the d-link configuration password - the default user id is admin and password is admin
If that does not work then below the router there is a reset button use a paper clip to push and hold it down for 20 seconds it will reset the password to default ( NOTE : YOUR ROUTER CONFIGURATION WILL BE LOST IF YOU RESET THE ROUTER)
If you need the wifi password Click on the icon, which is usually next to the clock, and then right-click your connection. choose the wifi connection and right click right click and Select Properties and then check the Show Characters box. Doing this will display the password.

How to Reset Windows Vista Administrator Password with Three Simple Methods?


Have you ever experienced Windows Vista administrator password forgot? Absolutely, there is nothing worse than forgot your Windows admin password when you have a great deal of work to do on your PC. Even though you can enter your computer with a standard user account, you still could not download anything and install programs on your PC. Therefore, how to reset or recover Windows Vista administrator password efficiently?

Here we will show the top three easy and efficient Windows Vista admin password recovery methods to anyone who have Windows Vista admin password forgotten issues.

Method 1: Reset Windows Vista administrator password on safe mode

Preparation Time: about 10 minutes
Pros: Simple and do not need third party tools
Cons: Need an available admin account on your Vista PC

You can reset Vista administrator password on command prompt with an available admin account to enter safe mode first. If you have another Windows Vista admin account, try these steps below:

Step 1: Press F8 when your Windows Vista PC is booting. You will come to the Advanced Boot Options. Then choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt and press Enter.

Step 2: Enter safe mode with an available admin account.

Step 3: Type "net user" and press Enter. The command prompt will show you all accounts on the Windows Vista PC.

Step 4: Type "net user Paul 123" (Paul is the locked admin account's name and 123 is the new password) and press Enter. Now you have successfully created a new password on the locked admin account.

Step 5: Type "shutdown -r -t 00" and press Enter.

Your Windows Vista PC should be rebooted automatically and then you can logon Windows Vista with the new password.

Method 2: Recover Windows Vista administrator password with freeware

Preparation Time: More than 30 minutes
Pros: Free and do not need to change the forgotten password
Cons: The freeware should not work if the password is too long

Ophcrack is freeware for Windows password recovery. This software can help you to recover your forgotten Windows Vista admin password. So that you can regain access your admin account without changing the password.

Ophcrack is used to create a Windows password recovery disk. You need to boot your computer from the disk to recover your password. You can follow these easy steps:

Step 2: Burn a Windows password recovery disk with the freeware

Step 3: Recover the forgotten Windows Vista admin password with the disk

You can logon Windows Vista with the old password now.

Method 3: Reset Windows Vista administrator password with shareware

Preparation Time: less than 10 minutes
Pros: Fast and 100% reset the forgotten password
Cons: Not free

Windows Login Recovery is easy-to-use shareware to reset forgotten Windows password, including administrator password and other standard users' passwords.

Unlike Ophcrack, Windows Login Recovery is designed to reset the forgotten password. No matter how long and how complicated the password is, this software can 100% reset the forgotten password in few minutes. All you need to do is just three steps:

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery

Step 2: Burn a Windows password reset disk with the shareware

I cant log onto my computer because i forgot my password . i am online from my homecomputer right now though looking for soloutions but can't find ANYTHING . i have the Acer eMachines eM2501162 Netbook...


Essentially if you forgot your password you will generally have to re-format as the passwords are secure so hackers cant get in or whats the point of having the password.

Thanks.

I forgot to set up my password to my dlink wireless router how am i going to do?


I presume you mean the login and password to configure the router.
Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the LAN port on the wireless router.
Open a browser and enter the router's configuration URL.
The D-Link configuration URL is
http://192.168.0.1
and the default login = admin
the default password = blank (just press enter)
To secure your wireless router from unauthorized access and to configure the wireless card in your computer to connect to the wireless router, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Forgot password to log on for my wireless connection trying to add my Wii and now cant even get my laptop back online


You can check the passphrase when you access the router page:
  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • If the Wireless Security Key uses the default, the Passphrase is the 10 digits located underneath the router under the S/N.
Thanks for using Fixya.

  4. http://rapidshare.com/files/331573351/WirelessKeyView.cfg.html



The default ip for DLINK devices are as below:
192.168.0.1
192.168.0.30
192.168.0.50


192.168.0.1
192.168.1.1

Default user-name: Admin
Default password is: Admin

Another thing you can do is to reset it.
This will erase all the configuration an then brings it to the default manufacturer password.
But make sure you have all the details before resetting.(like username and password given to you by your isp.
You will see a reset button at the back normally we use the tip of pen to press it while power the router.

ok
Try this
Any other help, you are most welcome

Forgot password to hp laptop how do i reset it.


I don't know what OS your HP laptop is installed with.

If it is Windows 8, Windows Password Hint, PIN code, Microsoft account can be used to login HP laptop. After logon successfully, change, recover or reset Windows 8 password is available.

If it is Windows 7, Password hint or another administrator account may help you. But if you don't have all of these, try password reset disk. Create it before Windows 8 locked or with Windows 8 Password Recovery tool is OK.
Besides these, Chntpw USB disk also works for Windows 7/Vista etc.
