If its a router, you need to reset it, disconnect the router fom everything. Check the back of the router and you will see a pin hole, keep the router on and insert something in the hole and keep pressing it. You will see the light goes off and come on, then you can use the default user name and password.

If its an Operating system,

If its XP, then you need to start the PC in safe mode and select the default admin account, go to control pannel and select the user accounts and remove the password.

If its Vista, then you need to reinstall the O/s.

Where do i go to safe reboot my computer to log in through administrator on a dell optiplex 740?

The admin account is disabled by default on Vista/7/8 What is the issue? I believe you will need a repair disc or windows install disc. Boot to the repair console and type, without the quotes "net user administrator /enable:yes" that will get you access to the admin account. If you've simply locked yourself out of your user then download and burn to disc the Hiren boot CD and follow this video. Should only take a minute or two to unlock your account.

My asus laptop wont run as administraitor

XP - Is sometimes hidden. Try Safe Mode.
Windows 7 - You are the Administrator. Well, at least hope so.

Windows 8 - Is disabled.

All versions of windows require an admin. Meaning you may find yourself locked out if you don't have access to an admin account.

Locked out admin disabled

First, go here and download the ISO.
Download that program and burn it to a CD-R.
Then put it into the PC with the login problem and boot from it.
Follow the on screen instructions and you can reset the Administrators account & password with this tool.
Its pretty easy to do so I doubt you will have any trouble. Just follow the on-screen instructions.
Then reboot without the CD in the PC and you should be able to login as the Admin with no password.
