You only can change a password, after you gave in the old password. So when you forgot one, you are in trouble.
When you can reset and put in new software, at least you can use the device, but you will loos all data stored on the device. When you have a modern Apple device you not even can do that, because the password is in the flash memory. And even a very long time without power, won't delete the content of the flash memory. Lucky you, when you have an Apple iTunes account and you can remember that password. Apple can help you there. For passwords on accounts, ask for help on the site. If you did setup the account, with more than only a few security questions, like a mail adres, they can send you a reset message to that adres.
Next time, please give more details about the device or account you want help for. Thanks.

Forgotten pasword

Take it back to where you bought it, explain the problem to the sellers or the manager if necessary. They should either override the product or give you a complete new one.

Hi kd8jnf_john,

I see that you need a fix for you forgotten password.

If you have XP you can still reset it by going onto safemode using the administrator account.

If you have Vista or Win7 then possibly hacking into the system is one way and reinstalling windows is the only option to be able to get rid of the password.

Using the Mini XP bootable cd also has an optiomn to reset forgotten passwords on windows including vista and win7, you can google mini xp and download it then get it burnt on a CD to be able to reset your password on your machine, as long as this is your machine hacking into it will be OK but if it is not then reinstalling windows is the best way.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nice day,
