I want to add a new password because i cannot remember the old password

you didn't say what computer you are using, but unless you remember the password, and you have only the one account or user, you cannot add a new user. If you have access to the Administrator account, you can change the password.

I have a lonova desktop H430 windows 8 and canot remember the hard drives password

Hi Lisa,

To solve this problem, all you have to do is download and burn a bootable CD and use that CD to start your computer. Boot CD's like Hiren's and Ultimate Boot CD for Windows will have Password Reset tools that you can use to reset your password.

Good Luck

Can't remember my wep code. Need wep code for DSL, for laptop, & other game systems

Connect your computer to one of the ports at the back of your router with a DSL cable.

  • Open a web browser and type "" in the address bar. This will bring up your administration page for your router.
  • Log in by leaving the username blank and use "Admin" for the password. These are the username and password you use if you haven't already set something up previously.
  • Click on the "Wireless" tab at the top of the screen, and then on the"Wireless Security" tab.

    If you can remember the administrator account password, then you can login with it in safe mode (F8 at system startup). Then, go to "My Computer, Documents and Settings" and look at the profiles. One of those profiles will be your username.

    Can't remember our password

    There is no need to remember your password. Easy way is use your browser to do that.
    Eg: Firefox
    1. open the firefox.
    2. Goto Tools->options->Security. Enable or put a check mark on "Remember passwords for sites".
    3. Click ok.

    NOTE: First time when you are entering your password, browser will ask whether to remember the password. CLick OK.From next time onwards you dont have to remember that.

    Hope my info would be useful. Bye. Takecare.
