If its a windows Vista machine then you need to restore the mahcine to factory settings, if your machine is an HP hold F10 or F11 at startup to enable the factory system recovery console and if the previous owner did nothing to the recovery partition you should be able to restore your computer to full life again with your own user settings, thats if its an HP or COmpaq, other brands use this method a well, however if you do not have this option then your next option would be to aquire a copy of a windows vista disk, Now all you need a windows Vista CD, you do not need a cd key, the reaosn why? Is because there should be a windows key on the bottom of your laptop telling you what windows version came with your machine, simply aquire a cd from a family memeber or friend a white text should come across the screen saying

Press Any Key to boot Form CD... press ne key
setup is now configurating your system...blahdy blah let it run follow the prompts enter your information, when it asks for the cd key have it written down form the bottom of your computer and input it in and let windows reinstakll your fresh version. Also make sure that you have the cd rom drive as your first boot device in your system BIOS,

Try Administrator and no password. if the language of the computer is different than english then Administrator will not work.

if it doesn't open up use a password reset cd or reinstall windows to the computer.

If you can't sign in as administrator or it asks for a password, someone has probably set a password to it.

You could try removing the password with this CD - http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/ You would have to download the cd image from the site and use isoburner to burn it to a Cd-r disc http://www.ntfs.com/iso-burning.htm

after that make sure the computer starts from a cd here's some info on how to work the bios to make the computer start from cd: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php

then follow the instructions on the website where you downloaded the program to remove the administrator password.

after doing so you should be able to sign in as Administrator without a password.

I can't login,i forgot my users name nd passwords


This is common. Here is my list of solutions.


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

Inspiron1525 wont let me sign in


Wait at least a half hour before trying again. That is a common lock out period, though not used in home situations. Ask if someone changed it. The options are not good.

I JUST BOUGHT THE NET BOOK AND THE PASSWORD ID LOCKED


This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password.

Bought 2nd hand laptop all user names, password & domain names left on login process how can they be removed or changed


If you can get in with administrator privileges, you would go to Control Panel, Users or Manage User Accounts, select target account and disable it or delete it. Exact procedures will depend on OS version you are using.
