Password?


Have you tried just pressing the "enter" key, will it let you pass or does it need a password?

Step 1: Enter Safe Mode

a)Start or re-start your computer.

b)Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.

c)Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

d)Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.

e)Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen

Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.

Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7

Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:

1.Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.

2.In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.

3.Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.

4.Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)

Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.
