From the Apple Support Forum for MacBook (yes, 3 generations later than yours.)
"With the original install discs that came with the MacBook, you can reset the administrator's password. Follow the instructions for "Resetting the original administrator account password" in this document: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1274"

Forgot administrator password for my emachines computer EL1352G-41w


You can reset administrator password with Windows built-in administrator account:

1. Log on with the guest account on windows, then right click computer, and choose Management.
2. Expand Local Users and Groups and Users in the console.
3. Right-click Administrator account and select Properties.
4. On the General tab, clear the Account is Disabled check box.
5. Close the console.
Now the super administrator account is successfully enabled. Next, you can easily reset the forgotten admin password from "Start->Control Panel".

If the above method can not help you, you can use Smartkey Password Recovery Bundle to help you to reset the password, and see the detail direction from http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/passwordrecovery.html.

Hp pavillion dv2700 administrator password


Through DOS to fix this?
I think you mean how to reset in safe mode.

Well, we can use safe mode to recover the common account, but to reset administrator password , we should use reset disk.

Do you have created reset disk before?
If not, you can use Windows Password Reset to create a new reset disk.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Reset .

Hello.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

I put a password on my computer & then made a Guest Acct and i forgot my password. Is there anyway to get it reset or something?


log in as an administrator account then from there you can delete the guest account and create a new one.

if you do not know the administrator account then you need to go into safe mode for the computer. to get to safemode, just press F8 while the computer is booting up until you are given a menu. From the menu, simply select "Safe mode" and then login to the un-passsworded admin account. once you are inside just delete the guest account there and create a new one.
