I forgot my password on my desk top computer its an older gateway running windowsxp. how do I reset my password or restore the computer to factory settings?


Just take out its bios battery [back-up lithium battery; disc type]; thus disable the bios memory. The re-insert the battery. All bios settings will be lost, but no data loss will occur. You have to re-set the bios settings, by holding F1 button during startup.

I have a emachine w3619, i let my son use it and he changed the login password and cant remember it. and i cant figure out how to get into my computor. how do i go about getting into my computor


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Mode option. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it gets to the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the userid for which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgot the password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Have a dell desk top need to use my friend forgot password can u help


Hi
Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.
Please take time to rate me 4 thumbs up

Self Password Reset

Resetting forgotten login passwords of domain users is a crucial bottleneck, which a help desk technician has to handle as a routine. A password reset ticket or a forgotten login password has to be addressed within minutes in-order to avoid employee downtime and productivity loss. It is estimated that atleast 40 percent help desk tickets are related to password resets and on an average each change password ticket consumes 20 minutes of a help desk technician's time.

A self service password reset solution that allows an end user to self reset his domain password in windows active directory remotely from a web browser without calling the helpdesk is an essential requirement. A self service password reset and management solution not only reduces the number of help desk password tickets but also enhances the productivity of an end user by averting unnecessary and prolonged waits.

I forgot the BIOS password someone told me to remove battery and put it back but i cant find the battery


The BIOS Battery, to be precise CMOS battery looks like:

When your PC is turned off, your computer saves information about time, bios options and others with the help of CMOS battery. Try to remove it, wait a few minutes and set it back again. This action might cause to reset your BIOS password.
