Hi I forgot my password for my ipad


The biggest problem with Apple product's is the password. If you forgot your password you need to connect it to you PC/Mac and sync it with iTunes. From there it will ask you for your user I'd which is your email address and pasword. If you've forgot it you have the option to choose forgot password or user name. Either enter the user name and password or select forgot user name/password. If you remember it, it will sync with iclould and you can reset the iPad to factory settings with no password. Now the second option will send an email to you with a link to reset your password. The most important thing is that you remember your email address and password you signed up with when you bought the ipad. "If your in pad says Authorization lock....well you must have activated find my iPad or it is stolen and the iPad is bricked and there is no simple way of fixing this short of going to Apple with your proof of purchase.

Here is how to reset your Linksys wireless router to the factory default settings in order to clear any existing properties.

  • Note: All your settings will be lost including WEP encryption information, MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered. The router user name and password will revert to the default of admin as the user name and no password.

To reset your Linksys BEFW11S4 router to the factory default settings:

  1. Hold the reset button on the back panel of the Linksys router for 30 seconds.

The router password will revert to the default of Admin and all user name information will be removed.

Osx 10.0.3 lost password


Try this...

Hold Apple+S when booting to enter single user mode
  • #sh /etc/rc
  • #passwd yourusername
  • #reboot
If you can't recall your user name, you can either look in the /Users folder (the directories are named by user), or run "niutil -list . /users".
Also, on older systems the /etc/rc script isn't available, apparently. If that second step fails, try mounting and starting the base services manually:
  • #/sbin/fsck -y
  • #/sbin/mount -uw /
  • #/sbin/SystemStarter
I've had to do this a couple of times for friends when they've bought a second hand machine, and once when I had a momentary brain lapse and forgot my own password. Works like a charm, though you'll loose any passwords stored in your keychain.

Resetting a password without an additional account Use these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account needs a password reset.
"Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, that administrator account may be used to reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above. These steps require an optical drive; if your Mac does not have an optical drive and you have a Mac OS X v10.6 Install disc, see below.
  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  3. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.

    Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.

    Note: The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  4. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  5. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

    >
  6. Enter a new password.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Click the red button in the upper left corner to quit the application.
  9. Choose Quit Mac OS X Installer... from the Mac OS X Installer menu.
  10. Click Restart.
After following these steps, you need to update your keychain so that it recognizes the new password.
If your computer doesn't have an optical drive, connect it to a computer that does using Target Disk Mode, or use the Remote Install Mac OS X utility to start up the computer remotely. Resetting a user's password in Mac OS X v10.5 or earlier If you are using an earlier version of OS X, select your version number below for password reset instructions. Avoid setting a blank password for a user account when using these steps. Mac OS X v10.3 through 10.5.8
  1. Log in with an administrator account. Tip: If you don't know the password of any administrator accounts, see "Resetting the original administrator account password" above.
  2. From the Apple menu choose System Preferences.
  3. From the View menu choose Accounts.
  4. Click the lock button if it appears locked; enter the administrator password.
  5. Select the name of the user whose password you want to change.
  6. Click the Reset Password button or the Change Password button.
  7. Enter a new password in both the New Password and Verify fields, and add a Password Hint if desired.
  8. Click the Reset Password button or the Change Password button.
  9. If a dialog box appears with the message "Your Keychain password will be changed to your new account password," click OK.
Mac OS X v10.2 through v10.2.8 Use Accounts preferences to reset an account password.
  1. Log in with an administrator account. Tip: If you don't know the password of any administrator accounts, see "Resetting the original administrator account password" above.
  2. From the Apple menu choose System Preferences.
  3. From the View menu choose Accounts.
  4. Click the lock button if it appears locked.
  5. Select the username whose password you want to change.
  6. Click Edit User.
  7. Navigate to the New Password field.
  8. Enter a new password in both the Password and Verify fields.
  9. Click OK.
  10. If a dialog box appears with the message "Your Keychain password will be changed to your new account password," click OK.
Regardless of how many characters are actually in a Mac OS X v10.2 password, seven bullet characters (•••••••) will appear in the New Password and Verify fields the next time the password is edited. Mac OS X v10.1.5 or earlier Use the Users preference pane to reset a the password.
  1. Log in with an administrator account. Tip: If you don't know the password of any administrator accounts, see "Resetting the original administrator account password" above.
  2. From the Apple menu choose System Preferences.
  3. From the View menu choose Users.
  4. Click the lock button if it appears locked.
  5. Select the username whose password you wish to change.
  6. Click Edit User.
  7. Enter a new password in both the Password and Verify fields.
  8. Click Save.
Important: Passwords for administrator accounts should not be blank.

Regardless of how many characters are actually in the password, thirteen bullet characters (•••••••••••••) will appear in the Password and Verify fields the next time the password is edited.

Eee pc hard drive lock


Asus Eee PCs run on the Windows XP SP2 operating system. Accounts in Windows XP SP2 can easily be password-protected, but the same password can just as easily be forgotten.


At moments like this, you'll wish you had chosen a password that is both secure and easy to remember, or kept a record of it in a private place.


The quickest way to get back on the computer is to seek out someone with an administrator account on the computer.


Press "Control" + "Alt" + "Delete" at the same time on the locked screen.

Select "Switch User."


Remember, only an administrator account registered on this computer can unlock the computer.


Type in "administrator" in the user name box.


Type the password that corresponds to the administrator user name in the password box .


Click "OK." The Asus Eee PC is unlocked.


Hope this helps

I have a macbook pro and my exboyfriend was an admin user on my laptop,and it was password protected,i dont know what i did but i ended up rebooting the whole thing and everything was gone.and now it made...


I'm not an expert MAC user but I know how ADMINS THINK, first I would try politely asking for help from your EX, or (if your at war with him), than I would try taking out the drive and put it in an other computer (a LINUX computer) than I would try to mount the drive and recover what ever you need to recover (personal files etc...) than re-install the drive in the MAC computer and RE-INSTALL the OS from scrach, than copy your fils back in the newly installed MAC... who nows... maybe he put a rootkit or something to hack you later... (even if your EX cooperates I would still, after recovering your files, re-install everything) just to be sure...

If the drive's data is encrypted than you lost everything X boyfriend and X files...

Good luck!

Master password is lost on mac mini


You should read the Apple Support article on changing/creating a password for the admin account. From there you can control the other accounts. BTW a common mistake is to have the Caps Lock key on. -Ken
