Computer won't take my password or security question

Posted by derrickman46 on Dec 21, 2008
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. Terry Comment posted on Dec 23, 2008 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

You can make a password reset disk through a third party tool . I will show you how to create a disk after you had lost the password.
You need to login any available computer and download Windows Password Key from http://download.cnet.com/Windows-Password-Key/3000-2092_4-11166455.html and install in that PC.Burn to a blank CD or USB and then use this to reset your locked PC.
You can find the guidance how to make a password reset disk after you have lost password from here.

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

Allowing Network Access with Blank Passwords with Vista


Although you can log in locally without a password, by default, Vista does not allow network users to access the computer without a password.
To change this setting:
Run gpedit.msc
Go to Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options
Double click on Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only
Disable this option

Is there a steering column security system doesn't allow starts on cold mornings?


I posted some information about your security system on the other question that you posted where you mentioned the pellet in the key on your older vehicle.

Let me ask you this: Does the starter not crank the engine when you are experiencing this difficulty? Or is the starter cranking the engine and it just won't start?

The reason I ask is because if the starter cranks and your problem only occurs on cold mornings, the problem is most likely to be caused by a malfunctioning Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.

In any case, you should scan your computer network for possible fault codes to begin any diagnosis of either your engine control system or your security system (Unless you really like wasting your hard-earned cash trying to "GUESS" what is wrong).

Have a dell inspiron 700m and this morning i turned on my computer and got the BIOS password screen, i have never set up the Bios password so i am not sure what the password should be or why it is asking...


You need the bios master password for your Dell laptop which you can get at http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Dell_Bios.php Just order the Dell bios master password for $20 and they guarantee it to clear your currently set bios password. I use them often in my work repairing laptops.

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)

Security Problem Message on PC


You have a spyware infection, plan and simple. Those security warnings (asking you to scan) are not part of the Windows security center.

Download Spybot [ http://www.spybot.com ] for free, scan your system and pray that the spyware has not done irreparable damage to your system files.
