Question about Sylvania G-Netbook
How do I change my password and user name?! I tried everything, system preferences etc, I can't find it. I hate the sylvania mini laptop, it's very difficult to work. Anyway, would be very thankful if you could assist me with this. Thanks

If you can't recall your user name, you can either look in the /Users folder (the directories are named by user), or run "niutil -list . /users".
Also, on older systems the /etc/rc script isn't available, apparently. If that second step fails, try mounting and starting the base services manually:
I've had to do this a couple of times for friends when they've bought a second hand machine, and once when I had a momentary brain lapse and forgot my own password. Works like a charm.

Lost user password in XP with
networking setup on HP
The best way to do this is using the
Offline NT Password & Registry editor.
You can download it at the following link: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/
This utility will enable you to reset the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2k/XP/Vista etc system.
The link above includes some directions on how to use this utility.
If it is the BIOS password, disconnect the cmos battery for half an hour or so then you can start again with no password.
Hope this helps.
