Forgot admin password cannot how to reset admin password gateway lt2104u

Look on Ebay for a password reset disk. Many vendors on Ebay sell a bootable "linux" disk that you boot from and then you can edit your password file on Windows. I have versions for XP/ Vista.Windows 7.

Be sure to get one that works for your version of windows. You must set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive first for this to work. About $5 to $10 for the reset disk.

My girlfriend got this laptop givin to her by her grandmother, she had forgotten the admin password but had a guest acc set up so it was no biggie, BUT... now its full of junk needs defragged/cleaned and...

Hi Chris,

Trying to get into the laptop's BIOS settings by pressing F11 at boot will NOT get you into the Admin account of Windows.

You can download and burn a copy of Hirens Boot CD - read about it here: This is FREE software. Do not pay for it if you find it elsewhere and are prompted for payment. You may of course, donate a sum if you find it useful.

Once you've got a copy, load into your CD drive and reboot the PC. Either set the BIOS to boot the CD first, or select the CD Boot if presented with an option to do so at boot time.

The PC will bypass Windows and provide options. One will deal with resetting passwords. You will not be able to learn the old password, but you will be able to create a *new* password instead. Select the Admin account for a new password and make it something easy to remember. Once complete, remove the CD and reboot. While booting, press F8 and choose Safe Mode boot. The Admin account should be shown for WinXP - enter the password you just created.

Got to the control panel, and change your GF's User Account to Admin Level so that she'll be able to do just about the same thing the actual Admin account can do, without having to actually logon as the Admin. You should only use the Admin account when you have to - she should use her account with Admin level access 99.999% of the time.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How to reset admin password

Reset Windows 7 admin password is not hard in fact, as long as you follow these methods to do.

Method 1: To Reset Admin Password with Administrator Account
On Win 7 logon screen, click user and "Switch user" to choose another administrator to sign into. Turn to Control Panel and navigate to User menu. Choose the account you want to reset its password, and remove its password. And then set a new password for it.

Method 2: Reset Admin Password with Password Reset Disk
You have two ways to get password reset disk. One is create it when you still have the administrator password. The other is to create it with third-party software, such as Windows 7 password genius.

Similarly, on Win 7 logon screen, after type wrong password, click link "Reset Password" to go on. Or insert password reset disk into Windows 7 computer and boot it from disk. Windows 7 Password Genius runs, at the same time, all accounts and password list for you. Choose the administrator account, and click "Reset Password" to finish Windows 7 admin password reset.

Go to Start > Search. Type MSConfig. Go to Boot.ini. Remove extra partition. Be careful a wrong config will cause boot failure. I would make a back up copy of the file before making any changes.

There is also a chance of it saying to use Boot Manager. Same thing only command line interface.

How do I uninstall programs from the control w/admin privlages

What version of Windows are you using? (XP, Vista or Windows 7)
Try creating a new user account by going into the control panel and selecting "User Accounts". Create a test user account and try removing the software from the new account.
If that fails reboot the system in safe mode. Reboot the PC and then just before you see the Windows load screen press F8 a few times and you should see the option to boot into safe mode.
Once you are booted into safe mode it should take you to a screen where you are able to login as a hidden admin account (depending on which version of Windows you are using) and then try removing the software.
