Unlock Windows 7 Password by Third-party Software

If you don't have a password reset disk and can't access any administrative account on your win 7 computer, then you need to create a bootable disk with Windows Password Recovery Tool Standard (Click to download). You can download it on any other accessible PC, then burn it to a CD/DVD and then boot your computer from the disk and it allows you to unlock password Windows 7 instantly.

1. Download Windows Password Recovery Tool Standard and install it on any accessible computer.
2. Burn it onto a CD/DVD.
3. Boot your locked computer from the newly burned CD/DVD.
4. Wait until the boot process is finished. When a window pops up with all your Windows accounts, select a user account and click Reset Password button to reset your lost Windows 7 password.
5. Click the Restart button to reboot the win 7 computer, now you can log into your win 7 system without any password.

It is annoying when you forgot or lost your Windows 7 password. However, with the Windows 7 password unlocker (Click to know more info) solutions above, you can unlock your forgotten password and regain access to your Windows 7 OS easily and quickly.

Touch pad has locked up. New laptop. How do I unlock it? Using Vista

I know some computers have three switches . The power is the main but there are sometimes one on each side of the power switch.
The one on the left unlocks the keyboyboard, give that a try

My computer is locked up

You can try doing a system restore by pressing f11 as soon as the computer starts up... otherwise, you can just perform a system recovery (which will restore the computer back to factory settings and will result to data loss).. If you are not ok with that then maybe you can try password recovery software found here. Password cracking is not guaranteed to work though.

My HP Compaq Presario V2000 says: this computer is in use and has been locked; only PC #.../Marie D (guest) or an administrator can unlock this computer. Links follow for user name and password. I don't...

Sorry, Marie, didn't quite get the whole problem. Try a reboot. If that doesn't work, try safe mode. You get to safe mode by rebooting, then when the Mfg splash screen comes up (ie HP/Compaq/Presario) hit F8 until you get the dos menu. The DOS menu is a black screen with about 8 options or so. Use your arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode. Again try to get the Administrator account open by choosing that account and then just hitting enter. If you get in, open the Control Panel, then the User Accounts. Then either change the logon procedure using options or remove the password from the user account you're having problems with. If you can't get this far, you probably have a virus and should submit your computer to a professional for backup and recovery of the hard drive.

I have an HP Compaq Presario V2000 and I've been locked out.

You might get in using "Safe Mode" and going throught the Administrator account. If you have no password on that one (most people don't) then all you need to do is hit enter. If you have the same account listed on your Welcome page try it there first. If not Google password recovery. There are some free password recovery programs online that could help. Only other choice is to have your documents backed up by pulling the HDD then do a full recovery using the recovery partition or CD.
