I'm very sorry for your loss: You likely have the info from the PC/laptop, already.

This concerns your PC/laptop--likely not your router. Your lawyer should know someone who may be able to extract the info necessary and proves trustworthy (perhaps bonded)--they've likely dealt with this concern before--and, often.

Your lawyer is the best first person to contact at the onset of serious illness and deaths--certainly, this includes this frustrating problem at this time. After all, this is your husband's sensitive personal info and account numbers--you don't want that to get to the wrong people.

SOURCE: need to know how to get password on apple computer

Id syggest that if you are interested in making this a learning experience and you have the original software ... open the case. Look for the BIOS battery ... slip a business card in the connection - leave it there for 5 minutes. This will remove all BIOS settings.

Turn the machine on with a system disk in the floppy or CD drive. Reinstall the operating system.

If this is over your head ... please google "reinstall my apple operating system". You will get lots of instruction on how to do this.

As far as getting her password ... you probably have a better chance at winning the lottery.

Have fun

Le me know how you make out

I have a computer from my husband who passed away. How do I change password which I don't know and "wipe it clean" so that I can take it over. It is a Toshiba.


Sorry for your loss.

Most modern systems have a recovery partition which you can boot into and run a factory restore. That will wipe ALL data including all the files on the computer and put the "out of the box" factory system back on the computer.

I would advise checking it first for an private documents that might be of need later before doing a factory restore.

You can find videos on youtube for most makes showing step by step recovery instructions.

Hello, Bonnie -

I hope I am correct in understanding you are asking about a widow's pension.

Without knowing the country where you reside it is a challenge to provide you with relevant information or direct you to the right source.

Was your husband receiving a company pension prior to his passing away? Or are you asking about financial benefits through a government source (what country?)

You can use the Edit feature of your question to add clarifying information or put the information in the Comment box.

Best wishes.

My husband passed away in 2016 how can I retrieve his Gmail Hotmail Facebook.

Gmail and Facebook, as well as almost every online group all have a default email address on file. You should be able to click "forgot password" and from there you will be taken to a page where it will send you a link to renew your password. All this assumes you do have access to his email account.
