Re: resey computer to default

If this is an XP computer, you should try to login as administrator first. It's very common for this password to be left blank. Just enter "administrator" as the user and press enter. Re-installing the OS can be very time consuming, so this may be worth trying first. See here for the procedure: To reset" the computer. You'll need the disks that came with the computer. Either recovery disks or an OS install disks. This procedure varies from computer to computer, so I can't tell you much with out the make and model info.

How do i reset my laptop to factory settings

What OS are you having?
Reset windows password as following instruction :

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset .

How to Reset HP Pavilion Password on Notebook Computer


Pavilion BIOS password reset is commonly needed. Today, we talk about HP Pavilion Windows password reset solutions. Our Windows OS users can set up administrator account and encrypt it with password to enter the OS. This actually prevents unauthorized users from operating on your system. While, if we Pavilion PC users forget the encrypted password and can't login Windows, now what to do for HP Pavilion password reset?

Firstly, if there are not important files on our HP Pavilion notebook, we can reinstall system by deleting all data and cleaning system. Most of us may hope opt for other ways to bypass the Pavilion login password.

Secondly, please think that is there still another account for us to enter Pavilion PC. In Windows XP, Vista, there is HP Pavilion default administrator which has blank password. For Windows 7, the built-in administrator account is disable defaulted. Only if we set it as enable, the account can be used at the moment.
Take HP Pavilion Windows XP password reset from Safe Mode as example:
a. Press "F8" when Pavilion laptop starts.
b. At the "Advanced Boot Options" windows, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and Enter, then PC enters Safe Mode.
c. Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Note that if we have set this HP Pavilion administrator password, we need to input the password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
d. Start - Control Panel - User Accounts.
e. Select the locked account and reset password for the locked account.
f. Restart Pavilion laptop and login with the account newly password reset.

Thirdly, the least troublesome solution on Pavilion password recovery is to opt for password reset program tool. With the program and a CD/DVD/USB disk, we can easily remove the password for locked computer. Take Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
Step1. Burn .iso file to a CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive on an accessible PC;
Step2. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive;
Step3. Recover forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.

Certainly that the 3 ways can make sure we reset Pavilion password finally. The Windows Password Recovery Corporation can be used for Windows 7, XP, Vista, and Windows Server 2003, 2008 domain password, etc.

Latitude C400 PC Notebook: admin password recovery I forgot my password and ...

you know? when we install our system."administrator "account is autogenerate,and the default password is blank,
So if you didn't change the admin password then try this:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it?ll show Classic Login box. Now type ?Administrator? (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from ?Control Panel -> User Accounts?.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
but if the administator password has been changed,then the only way for you to bypass your system is using a password recovery password recovery 6.0 could be your best choice,i have used.and think it is easy-to-use.
