Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I forgot my password and was wondering how can i access my emachine desktop without having to run startup disc
Well you can use the admisintrator account you set up to begin with or any other account that has admin abilities to change the password. But if you dont have that then you will have to hack the password to change it.
to do that go to source forge and download ophcrack live cd http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/ and burn it to cd.
Then boot to the cd. (put it in the drive and rebioot then hit key when asked to boot to cd. you may have to go into your bios and activate cd as a boot device.)
Then it will start to crack the password (I say crack for a lack of a better word)
Once its done you chould see a list of passwords found.
Write down the one you need and then reboot the computer without the cd in the drive.
Then when it asks for password use the one you wrote down and then imediately go to users and change the password to something you will remember.
hope this helps.

You can change your password by logging on with another account with Admin rights.
Then go to Users in Control Panel. -> Start / settings / control panel, or
Right click “This computer” and choose manage.
If this doesn’t work,
then there is quite a few excellent easy to use programs you can download.
One of the best is here:
to download the "torrent", you ned a small program, download from here:
First you download Azureus, then install it.
Then you "download" the "torrent" from thepiratebay and OPEN it. Azureus will open and the downlod begin.
When you have downloadet ERD commander 2005 then you will need to burn the disc image to a CD using software that supports burning of ISO images - download from here:
With this disk, you just boot your system (note that the CD drive should be the first boot).
You now have full control of your computer and permition to over write the administrator password, plus a lot more :-)
