Hi dvd_hix
Your solutions here would be
1. To buy a windows xp package and reload the laptop from scratch.
2. Alternatively you could look for a window me disk from someone that doesn't have it loaded on another PC as this would be a violation of Microsofts Copyright.
3. Take it to a IT specialist to recover the password for you.

Admin password reset

If you can get into windows with another users password, backup your data and then instal windows as a fresh install from the restore option after booting with F8 or F11 if not a windows disc and if you haven't got one, download an ISO from microsoft using your COA on the base label of your laptop to install a new system. Don't forget to install ALL of the system drivers!

Factory reset

If you restore the laptop to the Out of the box condition you will lose all your data.
You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD.
Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions.
There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.
Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :-
After fixing your admin password then create a new one and do not lend your laptop to your room mates.

I want to donate a toshiba satellite a55-s326 and want to restore factory settings but don't have discs.

Don't bother. Log on as the Administrator, usually you need to do ctrl-alt-del twice at the log on screen to be able to enter this account or start the machine in safe mode. Usually there is no password.
Remove your data and delete the accounts (control panel, user accounts)! Uninstall all software that you do not want to leave on the machine. Create a new account - User. The new user can change the name later.

Bought Sony Vaio Windows 7 with previous administrative password and need to restore setting's in order to change setting to computer

The laptop is Bios Password Locked, who ever you bought this from must know the administrative password, because the computer will remain locked until this is remedied and you will not be able to restore original settings without the password. If the seller can't provide it, I would return it expecting a refund. Sony charges $100.00 to correct this and you must be the original owner. There are other services that claim they can help and charge a fee.
