    Did you put the user name into the computer? Did you buy it new? 
    If it is you computer their should be no password unless you let someone else use it and they are playing a dirty trick on you. 
      This password is for the computer, correct? Not to hook up to the internet or some website?

I cannot access my emails in my outlook account on my Toshiba CB50 Laptop it keeps saying theres a problem with my account why is this?


Solution: Make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet or your network. Use a Web browser to see whether you can access Internet sites. If you are on a local network, see whether you can access intranet sites. For information about checking the status of your network connections, see Mac OS Help. Solution: Verify that Outlook is online. On the Outlook menu, make sure that Work Offline is not checked. Cause: Some POP and IMAP e-mail accounts use an outgoing mail (SMTP) server that requires authentication. Solution: Turn on SMTP authentication for the POP or IMAP account. Some e-mail services, including MobileMe mail accounts, require authentication for their SMTP server. If you verify that all your account settings are correct, but you still can't send messages, try turning on SMTP authentication. On the Tools menu, click Accounts. In the left pane of the Accounts dialog box, select the account. Under Outgoing server, click More Options. On the Authentication pop-up menu, select the authentication type, and then enter your credentials as necessary. Cause: Your ISP or network has a firewall that blocks connections to your e-mail service's outgoing mail (SMTP) server. Solution: See if your ISP or network administrator can provide an alternative SMTP server to use for your POP or IMAP account. If you have the address of an alternative SMTP server, enter it in your account settings. On the Tools menu, click Accounts. In the left pane of the Accounts dialog box, select the account. In the Outgoing server box, type the server name or address. NOTE: If you use a laptop computer in multiple locations, such as at home and at work, the SMTP server that you use in one location may not work in other locations. Each Internet connection that you use may have a firewall with its own restrictions. Cause: Your credentials or account settings are incorrect. Solution: Verify that your account user name, password, and other settings are correct in Account preferences. On the Tools menu, click Accounts. In the left pane of the Accounts dialog box, select the account. Make sure that you have entered the correct e-mail address, user name, and password. If your account still does not work properly, check with your e-mail service provider for details about how to configure your account in a mail application. Your account may require that you use special settings such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to connect, or that you override the default port. Cause: Your network requires a proxy server to connect with the mail server. Solution: Specify a mail proxy server in your computer's System Preferences. If you use a network to connect to the Internet, you might have to specify a mail proxy server. Ask your network administrator for the correct settings for your mail proxy server. For instructions about how to enter these settings, see Mac OS Help. Cause: Your e-mail server is unavailable. Solution: Make sure that the mail server is online. If you successfully connected to the account before, the mail server might be offline. Contact your e-mail provider or network administrator to see whether the mail server is available.

I cannot get or send emails. my server is not working


This indicates either an incorrect password or server settings. Make sure your account is setup as follows:

IMAP
Incoming Mail Server: mail.btinternet.com
Port: 993 (this should be automatically populated if you tick the SSL Encryption)
SSL Encryption: Enabled (but not STARTTLS)
Username: your email address including the @btinternet or @btopenworld.com part
Password: your btinternet password
Root folder/path:
Folder separator: . (full stop)
Please do NOT enable "secure password authentication" (SPA). It's not needed when you use SSL encryption and won't work.
If your IMAP client supports it, we recommend you also set up the following folders:
Trash
Sent Items
Drafts
POP3
Server: mail.btinternet.com
Port: 995 (this should be automatically populated if you tick SSL Encryption)
SSL Encryption: Enabled (but not STARTTLS)
Username: your email address including the @btinternet or @btopenworld.com part
Password: your btinternet password
POP from folder: By default, POP will pull emails from your Inbox
SMTP
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.btinternet.com
Port: 465 (this may not be automatically populated on selection of SSL, so you'll need to check this)
SSL Encryption: Enabled (but not STARTTLS)
Authentication: PLAIN
Username: your email address including the @btinternet or @btopenworld.com part
Password: your btinternet password

My windows is in spanish,forgot my password help


If you're under Windows XP you can try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Canc twice at the login screen, a Windows will pop up asking you to type in a valid username and password. In the username field type "Administrator" (without quotes), leaving the password blank. If the Administrator account is not disabled and still has the default (blank!) password, the system will continue to load. Then go to the control panel and delete the password for your locked account, logout from the Administrator account and log back in from the account that was locked.
This only works under Windows 2000-XP.
Or consider using Kon-Boot (commercial) or other similar utilities.

I forgot my password on my gateway computer. Howcan I reset it?


Thanks, you better change it then reset it so that you will be access the Computer immediately. Power on the computer and when you see the Logon Screen where you are asked to enter the password, click the mouse somewhere on the blank space on the blue screen and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete two times (or maybe more) on the keyboard, a classing login window will pop up with two boxes, type in "Administrator" (without quotes) in the username box and press enter without entering the password. The system will boot into Administrator's account.
Now, right-click the "My Computer" icon on the Desktop, select "Manage" from the drop down lists, once it's opened, click "Local Users and Groups", again open "Users" folder, the existing usernames will be displayed with the username you've forgotten password on the right-pane of the window. Again right-click your username and select "Set Password", confirm by clicking "proceed" on the pop up windows and type in your new password (no problem, the old password should also work). Click "Ok" and close the window, now logoff and log back with the password to your user account (or simply restart your computer and login with the newly set password), it should work without any problem.

If the administrator account doesn't accept the blank/empty password, you'll need a tool such as OphCrack etc..etc..

Note: if you've encrypted any partitions or file or folder when you were on the computer with the current forgotten password account, then all encrypted files will never be able to opened, but if you don't know this meaning "encrypt", forget it, you better ignore than messing with your files and folders.
But if you know what is file encryption and have done, then try to change them back to default file system from the administrator's account or else, you better wait for my next post if in case you need them.

Let me know when you are done.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, my daughter has a dell inspiron 1501 used from my sister. and well it was working fine . then we did not have it on for while and now when it comes on asking for the password it doesnt work. we use all...


When your computer boots and the login screen appears press control(ctrl) + alt + delete twice. This will bring up a window asking you for your username and password.
Type "administrator" without the quotes as the username and leave the password field blank. Press OK.
When you are logged in as an administrator change the password for your old username using control panel>user accounts.

If this doesn't work then you need to reset the administrator password. Visit this link -> >LINK<

There are several types of password lock ups.
If you forgot the password on the log on screen where it asks for the username and password, you need to do recovery on the computer with the recovery disc that comes with it.

If the lock up is upon powering on the computer where you can see a blue screen and asks for a password, it is a BIOS power on password and there is no way to bypass this. You need to send it to an authorized service provider to reset it.

If it is an HDD password upon boot up, sad to say, the HDD needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Dell inspiron8100 administrator password


Is this a Black screen?
If it is that is asking for a BIOS password. Is this your laptop? The person that put this password in this laptop is the only person that knows that answer. That is a security question that you will have to take up with the person that done it. You can also contact Dell and give them the serial number and see what they say. Make sure you give them your name and address when you call them. They will need to know this.
