Well as long as you know the old password, it's no problem to change. Go to Start - Control Panel - User Accounts - then click on the account you want to change and then select Change Password. It will ask you for your old one and then type in your new one, click change and voila! Cheers.

    How can change user name and password in router D-Link?


    Reading this question, I'm thinking that you want to change the SSID, this is the name that shows up when searching for wireless connection. First, you must find out what is your gateway, this is the main IP address. It usually is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. Once you have that information, you need to log in the router, to log in, open a browser and type the gateway (Ex. http://192.168.0.1) A new window will pop up asking for a log in information. The most common default log in info are:
    Username Password

    admin admin
    root 1234
    admin password

    Once you had successfully log in, take a look at what you have in front of you. There must be a tab name Wireless, click it. Look for SSID and change it to what you want to name it. Security should be in the same path, if not, save your work and log in again, but since you already change the SSID, you must search for the wireless connection again, and input the password, log in again.
    If security is within wireless, then just head over to password and change it. You can also change the encryption type, I recommend WPA 2 personal. Once everything is all set up with the new SSID and the new password, click Save.
    Search for the new SSID or router with your computer and input your new password once found by the computer./ Good luck.

    I cannot sign onto my motorola surfboard router site, no user names or passwords work. please help. my other laptop connects to wifi network fiine, but other one keeps asking for pin or security...


    Connect to it directly using a LAN cat 5 cable, not wireless.
    Log in as admin to the router, and change the wireless password to something new.
    Disconnect the cable then try connecting from each laptop by wireless, when it prompts for password enter the new password.

    Gateway login


    What sort of problem at log in >>?????
    Forgot password ?
    A "setup password" is a password that you must enter to log into a user account on your Gateway laptop.

    This can be beneficial if you have a number of people using the same computer and don't want just anyone having access to your personal files.

    But if you are the sole user of your Gateway laptop, then it can be more of a hindrance.
    As all Gateway laptop computers run a version of the Windows operating system, you can remove the setup password by accessing the Windows Control Panel.

    Click on the "Start" menu.


    Select the option that reads "Control Panel." If you're running Windows Vista or Windows 7, this will have its own listing in the "Start" menu.

    If you're running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME or Windows XP, this will be found under the "Settings" sub menu.

    Double click on the icon that reads "User Accounts."
    Click on the name of the account that has a setup password that you want to remove.


    Click on the "Remove my Password" option.
    Enter your current password into the appropriately labeled box.


    Click the "Remove Password" option.
    Click "OK" to save your changes and exit the "User Accounts" utility.

    The setup password will have been removed from your account, and you will be no longer prompted to enter it when you boot up your computer.
    Unlock a Gateway Computer

    Getting locked out of your Gateway computer can be frustrating, especially when you have school or work deadlines.

    You can get locked out of your Gateway computer in cases where a password protected screensaver became corrupt, or if the you have set the default screensaver to use a screensaver that does not exist.

    Gateway computers come with Microsoft Windows XP and 2000, including the professional versions of both. Knowing how to unlock your a Gateway computer can save you time and irritation.

    Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.


    Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer." Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys once again when you see the Unlock Computer window disappear. Log on as usual. Method 2

    Shut down the locked Gateway computer by using the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit Shutdown tool.

    This tool shuts down and restarts a Windows 2000- or NT 4.0-based Gateway computer.
    Note the dialog box that comes up called System Shutdown.
    Wait for the shutdown timer to run out and see the Welcome to Windows box displayed on the screen.
    Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete," which unlocks the computer.
    Log onto your Gateway computer normally.
    Method 3: Backup, Modify and Restore the Registry

    Click "Start" and "Run," then type in the command below in the field box exactly as printed:
    %SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
    Click "Create a Restore Point," then click "Next" on the Welcome to System Restore page that appears.
    Type any name for the restore point, then click "Create" on the Create a Restore Point page. Click "Close" after creating the restore point.

    Perform this procedure before you make changes to the registry, just in case you make an error; otherwise, incorrect registry changes could create serious problems with your computer.
    Click "Yes" if you receive a prompt to turn on System Restore at this point.
    Clear the "Turn Off System Restore" check box by clicking on it, then click "OK," and repeat.
    Click "Start," then type "regedt32.exe" (without the quotes) in search field box to modify the registry and unlock the computer. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
    Locate the scrnsave.exe value under the registry key below:
    HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
    Click "String" on the Edit menu, type "logon.scr" (without the quotes), then click "OK."
    Look for the ScreenSaverIsSecure value, then click "String" on the Edit menu, type "0," then click "OK."
    Quit the Registry Editor
    Click "Start" and "Run," then type the command below exactly as printed to restore the registry, then click "OK":
    %SystemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe
    Click "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" on the Welcome to System Restore page, then click "Next."

    Note your computer may already be selected to restore to an earlier time--in this case, just click "Next."
    Click the system checkpoint on the Select a Restore Point page. Click "Guided Help (Registry Backup)," then click "Next" on the "On This List Select the Restore Point" area.

    Click "OK" if you see a System Restore message listing all the configuration changes it will make. Click "Next" when you come to the Confirm Restore Point Selection page.

    System Restore will now restore the Windows XP configuration you had at an earlier time, and then it will restart your Gateway computer.

    Log onto your computer as usual, and then click "OK" when you see the System Restore Confirmation page.

    Need the bios password on my gateway solo 9500


    When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

    during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

    also

    The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

    Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

    cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the 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. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

    Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

    Reboot the computer into Safe Mode


    When logging into Safe Mode you should be prompted with an option to what account you wish to use. Select the Administrator account. If prompted for a password try pressing Enter on the keyboard for no password. If this does not work, try other passwords you may have used. If you're unable to log into the Administrator account skip to the next suggestion.


    Once you've logged into the Administrator account open Control Panel and User Accounts.

    Have you tried a blank password for the administrator. Just press enter when administrator pops up. If that does not work, try administrator. That should solve your problem.
