Went to log into my facebook but forgot password so made a new one now its like a hole new facebook page i have no newsfeed no friend list not a thing that i had on my old facebookhow do i get it back

It sounds like you have set up a new account rather than an fixing the old account. Use this new account to search for your name. When you find that account, click Forgot Password. Log out of the new account, use the password reset link to set up a new password. You can also use a notification email to get to your old account. Also Clear your Internet Cache and COOKIES before doing the new password.

Forgot my password, forgot password, lost password, reset password

It happens to the best of us. We forget our passwords for certain websites or just can't seem to "type" it in right. I have even used the, "I know I am typing it right" excuse. This article will explain how to find or reset your password.

The majority of websites provide easy methods to obtain your password if you have trouble logging in. Usually, on the log in page there will be a "forgot password" or "forgot username" link you can click on. They may ask you a series of security questions or for your email address. Once you enter the required information some websites will display the password right there on the site for you to see, or may send you an email address with the password or even with instructions to reset it.

If you are playing a game and forgot your password the same usually applies. Sometimes, within the game client itself you can reset or view your password if you forgot it.

I always recommend keeping an excel spreadsheet with all of your website/software usernames and passwords (encrypted) for easy access in case you forget your credentials.

Make sure your password is not easily guessed. Using your name is bad or any other basic dictionary word. Use a combination of letters, numbers and characters. For example, #384dt@!L The more diverse, the harder it is to be broken.

If you forgot the password to your computer login, this is usually harder to fix. There is no built in "forgot password" option in Windows. In the newer versions of Windows you can leave "hints" on the log in screen to help jog your memory. In some older versions of Windows, there is software you can find using a google search that will help you reset or retrieve the password through DOS command prompt. This is to much to explain in this article but there are already articles out there you can find doing a search online! A easy way around a forgotten computer password issue is to reinstall Windows, however, be warned you most likely will lose any files/settings that are not backed up. Some will find this option quicker and less of a hassle(outside of losing your files and settings).

I hope this article was informative. Be sure to check out my other Tips and Tricks by clicking here.

Want to log into my old face book account?

You should be able to log in, but if you forgot the password, just log in and select "forgot my password" and they'll send you an e-mail to help changing your password.
Hope this helps.

Forgot password to log onto computer, how do I get pass that or reset to another password. Or remove password altogether?

Depends what password it is. Is this to log into BIOS? Or log into a system account on an operating system? And if it is the latter, what operating system version do you have?

For got password to login in how do i fix this

What are you trying to login into? Your Windows computer or a website?

If you are trying to log into your computer and forgot the password.
Try starting in Safe Mode, by restarting the computer, and as soon as you see the Computers Manufacturers logo start pressing F8 on the keyboard. Select Safe Mode from the options (usually option 3). When it loads select the Administrator account (unless you set a password when you installed your operatinsg system, this should not have a password set. Leave the password field blank and log in. Once logged in, go into Control Panel, Select user accounts and remove or change the password for your user account. Save changes. Exit control panel and Restart the computer.

If you forgot the password for a website, most sites have a Forgot Password or Need assistance with Logging in link. That link is usually under the login boxes.

Hope this helps
