How to change password Ubuntu?


Go to Administration and then user accounts. If you cant find administration just search for user accounts and it should pop up. Once in user accounts you might need to unlock it by clicking on the unlock button on the top right, if you do please unlock it or you will not be able to change the password. You can unlock it by entering in an administrator password. Then highlight the user account you want to change the password on. Then click on the password then fill out the menu and you should be able to change your password.

Hope this helps if it does please mark as solved.

You need to get the password!


Get them to unlock / give you the password. This can be more serious than expected.

  • Reformat computer.

if you did not make yourself the administrator of your computer

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as the user to log in once you have your computer running again you have to take control (administrator)control panel user accounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there or if your computer has a system restore you can restore it to an earlier date which will have your personal settings

if you still cant get into your computer

Remove a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

If you have the administrator account unlocked now, then you just have to go into the control panel and select each user account in the User Accounts panel OR if its Windows XP Pro you need to go to administrator tools in the control panel and open computer management. In computer management you will see the users and groups. click that then right click each user and reset their password

How can remove the admin password on my Dell D600 laptop


f you can already login to this computer and you have administrator's rights, then you do not need the administrator's password. You can go to the Control Panel - User Accounts to set up other Users or change the password on the various Users as well as the administrator.
If you need the administrator's password to set up a new user then there is a way to remove the administrator password.
You need to download Hiren's utilities and make a boot CD with this utility. You most likely need to do this from another computer.
For details on how to remove the administrator password please click on this link :-
