Question about HP PC Desktops

Started hp computer with vista one morning when it asked me for the password and when I couldn't give it the right one, it asked for the answer of the security password which was my mother's maiden name and it refused it also.Is there a way to be able to get to the password area to either, to change the password or disable it so that I can get back to my computer again..I talked to some local tech',s but they were unable to help me on vista.I was told that they could help me with XP but not Vista..I am on my wife's computer now.Thanks in advance to my computer's hiccup.

    I never was able to get the decryted passwords,when I went to the result page it said that it was 100% recovered but nothing came up in the box in the last one to the right..The only thing there was, the word blank in each of the boxes where the passwords should have been. You could not click on them or any other place on the results.I paid good money for your service but have received nothing but aggrevation. I will have payment stopped thats the good thing about a credit card,I need to hear back from you today.All I want is to get what I paid for so I can get back to using my computer.Thank You Terry Landrus The The order # were #194922 # 194924 The email address is pel@cajunnet.com

Format the C Drive using Windows CD & Set the Admin Password..................and then u Reinstall the All applications
or
Follow steps : START / RUN then type cmd. When command prompt up type 'net user' (no quotes) then press enter. Admin user name appears. next type 'net user adminname *' (putting in name as it appears and not using quotes). You will then be asked to enter a password and confirm it. Then you will be told it has now changed. Restart you computer and use your new admin password.

Hi,

There are some password removeal cds for vista, but there is also a online service that says it will give you the password for free in a day or two.
http://www.loginrecovery.com/

you need to burn the cd or diskette and insert it in the drive, start up from it and send the details to login recovery .com you will get the password.

Forgot password


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:

- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use third party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your login password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html

I have a SYNET07526 Prroduct name Netbook. The problem I'm having is that it keeps asking for a password but I dont know it because I only got this thing yesterday, and I never gave it a password


In order to help you with your password problem, I need some details:
-Is the screen asking for password a black screen just at the start up of the computer?
-Is the screen asking for password just after the Windows started, asking for user and password?
-Has the computer available cd/dvd rom in order to use it as a boot device?
-What is the operating system you use on this computer, if the computer haas ever started? (Windows XP, Vista, Win 7)

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

My vista ultimate can not detect my ethernet controller ihave no connection can somebody plz give me sa drivers for this..


Hello ,,,,,
Try this

If you are running Norton, etc’s Firewall, check its settings.

1st thing to do is make sure that the Workgroup Name of ALL the computers is
the SAME.

In Vista Network and Sharing:

Network Discovery: ON (So it can see the other computers)

Network set to Private (Public is for hotspots, airports, etc)

File Sharing: ON

Public Folder Sharing: ON (Vista’s Public Folder is the same as XP’s Shared
Docs)

Password Protected: OFF (unless you want to set up identical usernames and
passwords on ALL computers in your Network) If you have it ON, you will be
asked for a username and password when you try to access a Vista computer
from an XP computer.



If you still have ask me...

Thanks

Hello
It sounds like its a bug in your vista. I had that problem on several computers. try to restore your vista to a earlier point.
Here is the guide how to do it. try to restore a week back.
I think its a graphic driver that messing it up, or some rights on your system catalog.

I downloaded a copy of windows vista and it expired,im trying to reinstall my hp windows xp recovery cd and its asking me for a password,cant remember if i ever did set up a password for this pc.how can...


Hello,

At what point is it asking for a password? Has the computer formatted the hard drive yet? It sounds like you might be going in to Recovery Console instead of installing a fresh copy of Windows.

What you want to do is press Enter at the first screen, agree to the license, and then format your hard drive. After that, it will go through the installation without asking for a password. Remember - you'll lose all your data when you format.

Computer won't take my password or security question




i) in window's xp you have an option of recovering forgotten or lost password, but in the case of vista it is not possible to bring back therecover password.

ii) so instead messing with password recovery softwares, try reinstall or reaload OS or format ur system or reload OS Freshly....


Try this:

i) Attach your HDD(Hard disk drive) to different Computer and browse through your disk(ur C Drive or Hard disk)then do the following task:

Rename your SAM File located in \windows\system32\config\SAM to SAM1
Copy SAM from \windows\repair\SAM and paste it in \windows\system32\config\SAM
Attach back again to your computer and it will work with blank administrator password. means logging in to admin account without password...


Thanking you
