Try using ophcrack - a free password cracker for Windows. You need to download a CD image and burn this to CD to make a bootable CD. Then boot your laptop with this disk. It will scan your Windows password files and attempt to discover your passwords. I have used it in the past and it works well. If your laptop doesn't have a CD then get the ISO image onto a USB pen drive - you may need to use unetbootin to do this.

SOURCE: Dell c640 wireless connectivity problem

hi.
That's gonna be a permissions problem in the way the wireless device was set up originally. Go to network devices, properties (of the wireless connection) and check advanced options for permissions. Also check the way the firewall was set up, and if it allows the connection you are requiring.
Good luck

SOURCE: Cannot Ctrl-Alt-Delete

Yes you can pop off individual keys. There are three parts to most keys: the rubber 'boot' which actually activates the keystoke, the flex connector which is the plastic 'X' support under the key that lets it go up and down, and the keycap itself. I usually use two precision screwdrivers, placing one under the left edge of the key for support while prying gently with the other on the right. Be careful as it is very easy to break the little plastic tabs on the flex connector that clip into the underside of the keycap. (They can be replaced for about $7.50 on eBay)

It is not unusual for a foreign object (paperclip, staple, etc) to get under a key and keep it from pressing down. Sometimes you can use compressed air or even tweezers (with a steady hand) to remove these without taking off the keycap.

Worst case scenario is an electrical problem preventing the keystroke from being sensed. A replacement keyboard would run about $35-40 and is actually pretty easy to install. I would check the warranty first at that point, it might still be covered.

And finally, there is the 'Onscreen Keyboard' as a part of XP, found in the Start Button->Accesories->Accessibility folder.

Hi, without these boot cd´s it is not easy to recover from this state. These are necessary.
If you need to access your disk badly, you can use a linux live cd, boot it up store on a usb key.
Sorry to disapoint, but the recovery cd is necessary ( or a windows installation cd ).

SOURCE: DELL E6400 Connect to wireless Modem problem

I have the EXACT same problem on the same computer.
I'm not an expert so I searched online but didn't really find a lot of responses to this Dell issue. One suggestion was to turn off Intel PROset and let Windows manage the wireless connection.
That worked for me.
When in the Intel PROset menu, click on Advanced, then click on "Let windows manage your wireless set-up."
Alternatively, you can toggle between the two software by pressing F10.
This solution worked for me.

Take off safe mode


When your system is Windows XP, you can reset it in safe mode

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

One of my children deleted my account I dont know how and i was the only administer account and i had parental cotrole on there accounts so know i dont know how to git past the parental account.


Here is your only option besides trying to restore, or using the recovery partition to the way it was from the factory. If you do have to recover make sure you back up all important data to a thumb drive first. And for future reference always have two administrator accounts password protected.
There are numerous hacks that can be used, and I would advise people against
them. Instead, stick with XP and work through the problem. To restate the
problem, if the admin account has been disabled (to the best of my knowledge
there is no way to delete it completely!) you will come to the windows login
without a login name. You can press ctrl+alt+delete twice to pull-up a
log-in screen and when you type in "administrator" and enter your password
(if you have one!) it will say "Your account has been disabled. Please
contact your systems administrator." Obviously you can't go much further
with this. Instead, re-start your machine and keep hitting F8 and enter safe
mode with command prompt. You should be able to hit ctrl+alt+delete twice to
pull up a log-in screen again and re-enter administrator and whatever
password you may have. That will take you to a command prompt "C:\ documents
and settings/administrator." Now you are in business. Simply type "control"
at the prompt and press enter. This should bring up a message that allows
you to enter Windows recovery function, and it will also open the control
panel. Click on Administrative Tools and then Local Security Policies to
bring up the settings. On the left side bar you can select Local Policies
and then Security Options and Enable the Administrator Account the same way
you may have disabled it.
Thank you and good luck,
Lee

Security code: I have someone accessing my wireless network and want to security code it.


Right, it is quite simple really, simply open your browser, and login to the router, using login and password, once in the router select security, and generate a WAP/WEP "Key" (now copy paste this, huge 64 bit or 32 bit hex, to a note pad document and save it to the desktop, for later pasting into the WiFi Network itself.) Now once you have generated and set the password Key, save the configuration and reboot the router, and then, the PC, after the PC comes back up, Go to "Connect to a network" and select your SSID, (The name of your WiFi Router's connection), you will be asked for the WEP/WAP "Key" you can then copy.paste from that notepad document, into the password/Key "Field" and proceed, ensure you check, "Remember password".

Can't get by the windows log in screen


Assuming you did not set an administrator password - you can hit the F8 key when booting - and then select Safe Mode. Once the machine boots to safe mode, you'll be able to login using the Administrator account, and you can go into the control panel to change the actual user's password.

If you did set an admin password that you do not recall, you can use Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor to reset the Admin password.

Linksys router


Greetings!

I am presuming that the address you are using, 192.168.1.1 is the address from the user manual. This may not be the address that is actually assigned to your router however.

The Linksys Router can be configured in one of two ways, either with a static IP Address or by DHCP, a service that automatically assigns an IP from a DHCP Server on your network.

An easy way to test this is to go to a PC on your network that you know is functional and uses the Linksys Router as its network access point and open a command prompt from the start menu (start/accessories/command prompt).

At the command prompt type in tracert www.fixya.com and hit enter. The first address that you see in the traceroute is the IP address of the Linksys Router.

Write this down IP down and then plug it into your web browser. A login prompt window will appear on the screen. Do NOT enter a login name in this prompt - the default for admin is nothing. Simply input the admin password and the web browser will open to the admin page on the router.

As you are configuring a new network security password and protocol be aware of a few things:

1. WEP and WPA are two types of security used on these routers. Of the two, WPA is the more secure, however there may be devices and or clients on your network that do not support WPA. Prior to selecting WPA verify that there are no devices that cannot use that standard.

2. If you are adding a new security profils (password) and retaining the existing login passwords (keys) then your network will continue to function as it has, however if you delete the existing keys (passwords) then you will need to go to each computer/device on the network and update each with the new login information.

Once you have decided upon the security protocol you intend to use (WEP or WPA) you must then do the following:

1. On the router admin page click WIRELESS and then WIRELESS SECURITY.

2. For WEP you will set the Encryption Size and then enter a passphrase. The router will generate a key in hex and you will need to write down this key and provide it to the users on your network. If you change the passphrase later the key will also change and you will need to repeat the above.

3. For WPA, you set the encryption type and then enter a passphrase. Provide this passphrase to the users as that is how they will authenticate using WPA.
