Emergency Boot CD is a download you can find many places. Burn to CD and then boot off of CD, it has an option to change user passwords, including Administrator.
Here is a link to download

It is FREEWARE meaning you can use all you want and never have to pay.
I actually used the Admin reset functionality. I fix computers for my church, and whoever used the computer last put a admin password on it and then left the church. I was able to reset and get back to a working computer without any problems. Works great.

Need to reset bios password on Daytona-a rev 3.3 mboard


Enter the BIOS at power on, rather than booting windows, and go through the settings. Put in your old password and enter a new one as prompted on the screen.
If you bought this used, and there is a password from a previous owner, you can go to the system board and remove the small jumper that maintains the password lock for the BIOS. This should allow you access to the BIOS if you're locked out by a previous owner's password.

I recently bought a Dell Dimension 4700 at an auction. I got it home, started it up, but can't get past the administrative password to access the drive's entire memory. any suggestions?


Unless you are comfortable with using software such as Billix, or ERD Commander to set the Administrator password to blank. It would probably be easier to reinstall the OS. It would probably be good to do that anyway, because you don't know what was left on there by the previous owner. Might have Viruses or other nasty stuff.

Hope this helps

My administrator password


I dont understand the question, what about your admin password, did you lock it if you didnt set one then there is no password,
restart computer and click f7 as soon as it turns on, you will see a screen that says safemode, click safemode then administrator should be a user you can click on, try signing on without a password, if it wont let you then you have only a few choices,
If there isnt one and your having trouble runnin something as administrator then set an easy password on your admin account and use it every time. or make your username a Admin

I got this used for christmas and when i went to install my dsl on the system it locked me out and asked for the password of the previous owner how can I log back in and get rid of that


First hit f 8 just as the windows window comes up. Hopefully he did not set an Administator password.Otherwise you need his password or you will have to reinstall operating system. If you get in as Admin change other passwords

I have recently installed Netgear Wireless G Modem Router DG 834G but failed to select the path to encrypt my contacts with the internet - in other words I am a bit insecure. How do I change this...


Type in the routers sign in address in the address bar and you can open up the admin page. If I remember correctly, the url is http://www.routerlogin.net/ or http://192.168.1.1/ The default sign in is admin for the user id and password in the password box. User id = ADMIN and password = PASSWORD. This will get you to the default settings of your router and then you can set it up secure.
