Question about Computers & Internet
I can not get into my new sony comp - the one that has everything integrated into the screen - it keeps saying that the password is wrong - and I did not make a recovery discs or password reset disc, please help
If your OS is vista, follow the steps in the following link
If your OS is MAC, then follow these instructions,
Althoughthere’s no real way to recover a lost root password, youcan change theroot password even if you do not know the current one.You must havephysical access to the machine in order to accomplishthis task.
1. Click Restart at the login window
2. While the computeris restarting, hold down “Command-S” until yousee text scrollingthrough the window. This boots the computer intosingle user mode.
3. At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw /
You will then see various services starting up.
4. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.
(ThoughI’ve not tried it, it appears you can type niutil -list ./users to geta list if users if you do not know the username….ifsomeone wants toverify this, I would be most appreciative).
5. After entering the new password, type:
6.At the login window, enter the username with the new password.Once youare logged in, you can use the Multiple Usersapplication(/Applications/Utilities) to change your user’s password, orcreate anew user account.
Note: this may not work for newer versions of OS X; I think they didsomething about it in a security update. I hope this helps you with Macintosh password recovery.
Hope this helps,

Click the "Windows" button and then type "eMachines recovery management" into the search box. Click on "eMachines recovery management" in the results list and then click the "Restore" tab.
Click "Password Settings" and then type a new password into the text box.
Click "OK" and then click "Restore System to Factory Default".
Type the recovery password into the "Password" text box and then click "OK". Click "Next" To start the recovery process.
Click "Finish" and then wait for your computer to restart.
This procedure could take several minutes. Once your computer has restarted, you'll be prompted to create a new user account, enter the date and time and set up the internet settings.
or if you are running XP
If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.
You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.
You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system. This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html
Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.
You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa...
