It is imperative you get that password!


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instruction exactly.

WRONG! There is no free upgrade for Vista Home Basic to Windows 7 for anyone anywhere. Acer screwed us, you and me, by loading Vista Basic on these systems so we don't qualify for a free upgrade. If we had Home Preminum we would get a free upgrade, but not with Basic.

Ive forgot my password, how do i reset it with a new one?


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password.

Take care.

My son has changed the password on my notbook,now i can log on.


You will have to setup a separate user account for your son to use. Do not make him an administrator. If he is signing on under your name he will always be able to change the password. (Change your password to one he doesn't know) then...

Go to:
Start menu - control panel - user accounts - manage another account-
create new account:

Make his account "standard"

Also Win 7 has an easy way to make a password reset disk (in case he sneaks pass your blocks). Look on the left side of the screen when in User accounts for this feature and follow instructions.

Logon doesn't work


You need to log in to windows with SafeMode at startup. When you first see the curser flashing hold the "F8" key to enter safemode. Then select safemode with networking. Then go into user accounts from Control Panel and open up your user name file and change the password. Good Luck.

Is there any way to change the administrator password?


Are you logged into windows or just the bios settings?
Are you running XP or Vista?
If you are in XP and you logged in by another user name and don't have and files under the Admin account I wouldn't worry about it as long as you have Admin priv on the user name you are logged in under.
