Password forgot r530


Option 1.
Depends on the operating system. XP or vista.

If XP:

The default Admin account might still be active. It's common for it to be.

At the windows login screen press CTRL + ALT + DELETE keys. A pop up box should appear asking for username and password.

Type in user: Administrator
Password: Keep blank, don't enter anything, just click on the login button.

If that works, then go to control panel -> users and you can change the password for your main account there.


If not, try this site: http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administra...

The only way I know for Window Vista is Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Also look at:
http://4sysops.com/archives/three-ways-t...

You could also try to crack it using http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net

Option 2.
You can enter in to that by entering into safe mode of your system...
you first enter into safe mode by pressing F8 ...
then log in and change your password or remove it.

Option 3.
best way for you is to reset your windows password. The Windows password Reset
can solve all your problem within a few minutes. Importantly,No need to call a technician, no need to re-install anything, and you certainly don't need to reformat.http://www.resetwindowspassword.com/

I need to reset my password on my Dell Studio 1535.I forgot what it was and cannot start up without


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

if this fails to remove your password


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.


click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password
also
if you are not the computer administrator and have not assigned a bios password during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there also click start control panel user accounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you must have full control can change the password there

hope this helps you


start a windows xp system up n safe mode then click on control panel ten user accounts then the specified user which is password protected and it allows you to change the password without knowing the original one. Restart the computer. Repeatedly press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options screen appears. Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system. Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.
Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control userpasswords" (without the quotes). Click OK.:
Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place. I do not recommend that a password hint be used.
Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.:
hope this helps you:

Try going into the control panel in the start menu. Then open the user accounts and see if you can change the password within here. There will be a link to click that says change password. If it does not work You can try loading safe mode.
To load safe mode press F8 repeatedly when turning computer on. This will bring up an advanced options menu. > Within the advanced options menu use the arrow keys on keyboard to navigate.> Highlight safe mode and press enter. > This will load windows into safe mode when loaded it will take you to screen for users to sign in. > Try logging into the administrator account without putting anything in the password field. > you can try any other accounts here as well to see if they may let you in > If this allows you to log in. You can go into the control panel under the start menu. > Then go into user accounts and change the password from within here. There will be a link that says change password.

Cant get passed admin password


As far as I know, You can reset windows user account password in safe mode(F8 when booting up). But if you forgot administrator password, you must reinstall windows OS or use the "Windows Password Seeker". Official site: http://www.passwordseeker.com

Password


is this a bios password (you enter on a black screen with white writing) or your windows logon password.

If its your windows logon reboot, and before the windows logo appears hold F8 for safe mode. at the logon prompt clear the user and type Administrator for the use and leave the password blank. From there you can go to the control panel and clear the user's password.
