SOURCE: cant log on forgot user account password for hp pavilion zd8000

Oh, you must be an Administrator, right? If there is another Administrator account on the PC, it can restore your password through User Account Settings -> Manage Another Account.

If not, I have a complex way. First, restart the PC. When it shows the HP logo when booting up, press the button for Setup (it is shown at the bottom of the screen, and it is F8 on my HP tx2001au).

Now, don't get scared by what appears. It looks a bit complex, but it is very simple and easy.

Navigate using the keyboard. Press the right button to move to the Security section. Here, press Enter on the Administrator Password option. Now enter and confirm a new password and you're done.

See the bottom of the screen for the button for 'Quit Saving Changes' and the computer will reboot. Now, I guess you can enter the new password.

If this doesn't work, see online for ways to reset a password in Vista. There are some softwares to burn to a CD and use.

If it is an XP, I guess there is nothing to do. Just press Ctrl+Alt+Del on the logon screen to see the classic logon screen. Type in the username 'Administrator' without quotation marks and the password blank. Press Enter and enjoy.

SOURCE: b and n keys not working on HP Probook 4520.

Until you can get the keyboard of the laptop replaced, you can buy a USB to AT keyboard adapter and hook a desktop keyboard to your system. Also a USB keyboard would work just fine directly plugged-in to one of the USB ports.
Most likely the fix will be to replace the keyboard, which is usually very easy to remove on laptops, but until you can get it fixed, you'll be able to use the system with the regular AT keyboard.
If you want to try to replace the keyboard yourself, I believe I've found it on the HP web site (you will need to confirm that it is the correct keyboard by contacting HP)

SOURCE: i forgot my login user

Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password..

My HP ProBook 6440b inbuilt camera is not functioning at all. Actually, it was downgraded to Windows XP from Windows 7 .I tried to download and installed the webcam drivers. Still it is not working. But,...


It is possible that the camera only runs on Windows 7. Re-upgrade to Windows 7. It is much better than XP anyway, and your computer is more than powerful enough to handle it.
