if you've got an admin account, log into it, go to User Settings, reset the password for your account;

if you haven't got one, then try using a password reset disk( if you've set one..).

How can i change my user password unable to sign in?

In this case, you will need to reset your Windows Vista password.

I have emachine desk top computer how do I lock this computer only to open with password

this can be achieved in one of two ways. Usually people will set up a Windows account password, this process outlined very well in the following document-

alternatively you can set a BIOS Startup password which is outlined here-

important- ensure that the password is difficult enough to guess but also one that you will remember as once the password is set it would be an extremely technical/difficult process to recover if you forget it.

My laptop poweron password forget

login password or startup password? Startup password can be bypassed by removing the CMOS battery on the motherboard, shorting the memory pins and replacing the battery and restarting.
If it is the login password, if you are on a domain the domain admin should be able to reset it; if not, did you create a password recovery disk? Is there more than one username on the laptop, and can one of those other users log in and reset your password?

How can I password-protect all files on my laptop?

Hi there.
You can set a bios and hard drive password either by using Acer Empowering Technology application or entering the bios itself by restarting the computer and hit F2 while its just starting up, make sure you keep your password safe because if you forget the the passwords you may find yourself locked out of your own computer and bios passwords are very hard to crack.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Forget my password ADMINISTRATOR in safe mode

The easiest way to recover your admin password in windows is to restart in safe mode (keep F8 pressed at startup) and log in as administartor (default administartor user that only shows at safe mode startup with - usually- no password). then you go to control panel and reset the password on your normal admin account. restart in normal mode and you are done. if that doesn´t work there are various password recovery applications you can download and use :
-- Reset Admin Password to Blank. Access XP/2000/NT/2003/Server

---Active@ password changer tool. Give it a try, it works really great and quickly.
