Ive forgotten my administrator password and cannot log on as administrator and upgrade any of my drivers or change any settings that is causing me trouble and causing machine to not perform at its bes


Turn it off for a minute or so, hold F8 and push start button while holding F8. Keep holding F8 until a screen comes up that will give you a means to get to your BIOS where you can change your situation.

Need the bios password on my gateway solo 9500


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode


When logging into Safe Mode you should be prompted with an option to what account you wish to use. Select the Administrator account. If prompted for a password try pressing Enter on the keyboard for no password. If this does not work, try other passwords you may have used. If you're unable to log into the Administrator account skip to the next suggestion.


Once you've logged into the Administrator account open Control Panel and User Accounts.

My problem is about my lovelife..i have a boyfriend hes a filpino but since he got work in a ship his attitude change he doesnt care me not like before..and one time i met a guy hes a foreigner he loves me...


If you love somebody, let them go. If they return, they were always yours. If they don't, they never were.
And I think I'm not able to guide you about anything, but can tell you one thing for sure, damn sure. “The one who loves you, will make you weep.”
Don't weigh someone in the balance of love, because that someone may change, as in your case, ALWAYS weigh yourself.
Concerned, Nooh.

I have a HP compaq laptop and cant log on as administrator


Hi martyn,

Probably the user profile is corrupted.
Log in to any account and type cmd in the start search bar > now right click on the cmd listed and select run as administrator. Now at the command prompt type net users administrator /active

This will activate the super administrator account. Now log in with this account and make any changes as required.

Hope this helps,
Anup

Cant log into router set up


you must log in as an administrator account. if you forgot your password for the admin, try to check the back of the router, there maybe a button there that you can reset back to factory default...but be caution, this will delete your recent configuration.

Go to safe mode by pressing f8 when you start up, my guess is the administration password has not been used once you log in remove the password you created from the logon you also created. Turn off and try again. If the administration password is unknown there is no way into XP none whatsoever. Even the most hacker within Microsoft will not allow you in, the only way is to reformat and start again. Good luck on the first try.
