    Is this an XP or Vista OS? Did you check to make sure Caps-Lock is turned off?

Hi,

If she cannot remember the password you can reset it. This will require a seperate computer with a CD burner and a blank CD to make a bootable disk, then simply follow the instructions on the page linked below.

Before resetting the password check the lights for your keyboard though. You may have your number lock turned on which will turn 789UIOKJLM into 7894561230 creating a number pad on your keyboard. If this is the case find the key marked "num lk" if it is the same colour as the letters pressing it should disable the number pad, if it is surrounded by a line or a different colour you will need to hold down the Fn key then press num lk to enable/disable the numberpad, you should see a light with a picture of a lock come on and off to denote number pad on or off. Ensure it is off then retry logging on with her password. If it still doesn't work, then procede to the link below and follow the instructions carefully.

I have a dell Intel desk top an I can't get pass the password lock on front Skreen how to override this


you should know the password to your computer, if you have forgotten the password, try logging in with a different user account and see if you can reset the password for the first one through control panel.

if this does not help, try safe mode.

if neither help, then call 1-877-805-1027 for expert assistance.

Try entering a password, when the the incorrect password message appear, check to see just below the password if there is a ("Hint") or a reset password message. Reset the password if given the option.

Laptop forgotten password


When you get to the log on screen, press the ctrl+alt+del combo twice. You should get another log on screen, change the user name to administrator, all lower case. leave the password blank and see if you can log on. Most people leave the administrator password blank...? If that gets you in, go to control panel, user accounts and change the password on your user account. Log off as administrator and log back in on your regular user name with the new password. Hope that works!
