If I recall correctly, you can get passed the password and use the computer, but you cannot do anything that would require an administrator password. In order to get passed that, you would have to format (because it will not let you reload Windows without a password) and load a fresh copy of Windows. I hope this helps.

    Cant log in to computer.dont know password. bought at auction


    Lost Windows password:


    • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
    • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
    • Reformat computer.
    • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
    • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instruction exactly.

    Windows 7 password reset bought at a auction dont know main password


    Step 1: Enter Safe Mode


    a) Start or re-start your computer.


    b) Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.


    c) Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.


    d) Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.


    e) Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen


    Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.


    Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7


    Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:


    1. Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.


    2. In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.


    3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.


    4. Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)


    Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

    There are some things you can do. If you didn't get restore cd's with unit, you can order them from Asus. If you got cd's then boot to it and restore the system to factory. If you don't want to order cd's then go to computer store and buy an xp cd and boot to it and wipe hard drive and install xp. If the system has lots of ram then just upgrade to windows 7. you can look online for password recovery but it will cost you money and sending them the info from your system.

    Log on to windows xp pofessional


    you can log on as an administrator (if it is available) with pressing two times of CTRL + ALT + DEL key. some times the default administrator name have no passwords. so, you can try to enter without a password. then you will create another user name as your own.

    If you cant logon with the administrator, just u can go for password reset or recovery disk to break that.

    you go to www.password-reset.com or www.lostpassword.com/windows.htm

    thank you.

    Cervical Cushion- Pillows for Neck Pain Are you a very sedentary person? Do you have a classic office job and are 8 hours or more sitting in front of a computer? Then you most likely suffer from cervical pain. Cervical pain means having severe pain in the neck area because of an incorrect position of our cervix for quite some time. The cervical block or its numbness is due to the unnatural compression of the vertebrae. In this guide you will find all information about cervical pain, how to prevent them and how to cure them, but above all you will learn how to choose your cervical cushion that will help you lessen the pain or make it disappear completely. In the following table you will find some models of cervical pillows that can be found on the market, along with some of the major features that distinguish them. How to Choose a Cervical Cushion Since on the market you can find a great multitude of cervical pillow models, choose the most suitable one and certainly not a small business. First of all, choosing the most appropriate one is to understand what pathology you are suffering from. Although we often call it neck pain, cervical is not always the same in all cases. In this regard, it is understood that not everyone can use the same cushion. There are cases where the patient needs a more flexible pillow, others where there is a need for stiffer material, so before buying your new cervical cushion it would be interesting to consult your trusted physician, who can visit you and decide for you what is best suited to your pathology. Another factor could concern the price, but being in the medical field I recommend closing an eye on this item, ten euros more or less are nothing when it comes to health. Moreover, the price is directly proportional to the quality of the material used and of course there are materials that cost more than others. So as you see there are several factors to consider. Take care of all the advice you'll find on these pages and you too will be able to make the right choice. What is cervical pain and remedies? The area of ??the cervical vertebrae is that portion of our body that accuses so-called cervical pain when our neck or our head is in an incorrect position for several hours. This area is very important for our health and our well-being. In practice it connects our body and especially the spine to the head, with all the nerve endings that pass right in this particular area and very sensitive. When this area is subjected to a continuous stress, we do not only pain neck pain, but we also compromise the proper functioning of the head movement. Very often the pain becomes so strong that besides affecting the neck, it moves to the upper shoulders and joints, causing the famous head turns and also nausea. In the most severe cases a capatina is recommended by your doctor. Among the various factors that can trigger these severe pains are incorrect posture or an improper pillow. At the origin of this evil, however, there are also muscle contractions, trauma and stress. For this reason, the cervical pillow was born, which relieves the pain and allows the neck to be in the correct position. Structure, shape and material are designed to fit perfectly to the shape of the neck, sustaining it and giving it relief.
