Question about Lenovo ThinkPad Computers & Internet

1 Answer

How do I regain control over my Lenovo S 10-3 Ideapad as only a guest user after forgetting the password?

Most every useful task I've tried so far requires administrative privileges, and having no disk drive gives me even fewer options, so what should I do, just give up and trash it?

Screen name on Hp 2000 says locked underneath it. Password tried too many times. Need to redo it with a new name and password


Not sure if this will work without some user's account being open, but try starting Task Manager. Press Ctrl/Alt/Delete. Press all 3 keys at the sme time. There should be a "reset password" option. But again, I don't know if you can do this unless a user is already signed in. If it doesn't work, the computer should have a "public" or "guest" account. When it wants your password, look for "change users". Click on that and select he guest, or public, or whatever it is labelled, account, and you'll be in the computer, but not in your owner's account. And if you try the task manager/change password from the guest account it may not let you do anything with your owner's account. If all else fails, call HP at 800-474-6836.
