I have forgotten my old password to log on


Hi,

Start the computer and get to the logon screen.

Hold down Ctrl and Alt and then hit the Del key twice, it should take you to an advanced log on screen. Clear the name and type in administrator in the user name pane, leave the the password pane blank and hit enter.

It should now take you through to admin account. Go to the control panel>User Accounts and from there you can change or completely remove the password.


Good luck and kind regards.

Laptop forgotten password


When you get to the log on screen, press the ctrl+alt+del combo twice. You should get another log on screen, change the user name to administrator, all lower case. leave the password blank and see if you can log on. Most people leave the administrator password blank...? If that gets you in, go to control panel, user accounts and change the password on your user account. Log off as administrator and log back in on your regular user name with the new password. Hope that works!
