Forgot password to XBOX account and cant reset password what else can I do to reset password

ou can use a pass code - a button sequence on your controller - to control access to your Xbox Live account. Once the pass code is set, anyone who wants to use your profile must enter the pass code before signing into Xbox Live.
  1. Go to Settings, select Account and then select Account Security.
  2. Select Pass Code.
  3. On your controller, enter a four-button code by pressing X, Y, the triggers, the bumpers and the directional pad.
  4. Enter your code again to confirm it.

I forgot my password...i had set an hint still i cant remember

If you have access to another computer with a CD burner, you can download Hiren's Boot CD, which has a utility to clear Windows passwords. Also, you can download/create an Ubuntu live CD that will do the same. If you don't have access to another computer, I'm sorry, but the only way I know around that is to do a complete Windows reinstall off your original Windows CD.

I forgot my password to open this jump drive.My computer will not let me gain access to any of my files on the disk. What can I do to access it again?

Retrieving a forgotten password on a Cruzer Enterprise drive How do I recover the password on my Cruzer Enterprise drive? Password hint
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not set a hint or still can not remember your password, you can click Forgot Password on the logon window and choose a new password. This will reformat the drive.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications in the user-accessible removable partition.

Password attempts
There is a limit of 10 attempts (default) before the drive is locked and no further access is possible. During this process, you MUST change the password and reformat the drive. This is an important security feature, protecting data in lost devices from brute force hacking attempts.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications in the user-accessible removable partition.

Cruzer Enterprise drive managed by CMC (Central Management and Control)
A drive managed by the Cruzer Enterprise CMC software can be unlocked remotely by the System Administrator when it is inserted into an online computer. The System Administrator can unlock the drive remotely even after the maximum failed password attempts has been reached. The user must then choose a new password. Data stored in the removable partition will be preserved.

If the device is managed but in an offline computer, the System Administrator can send the user a one-time unlock code. The user must enter the code then choose a new password. The existing data on the removable partition will be preserved.
hope this helps

Kingston pend drive cant open

If you are using Sandisk USB Drives, it may be that partition is password protected. If you can run the U3 Launchpad, it should prompt you for a password for you to access your "Drive F". Put in your password, and Drive F should be accessible.

Dont remeber my password

If the password you forgot is the user password, reinstalling the operating system will help you. If the password you forgot is the bios password(one which should be entered before boot up), you could reset it by removing and resetting the button cell present in the mother board.
