How to recover my password on my laptop


Go on line (with another computer of course) to SpotMau.com and get their boot suite program. Copy to a DVD or CD disc.
It has a startup program that bypasses your hard drive boot section and allows you to enter your hard drive boot sector. When there you can black out the original sign-in protocol (password) and it is Removed. Restart the computer and don't use a password again unless you have kids that use the system. No need for passwords if it is your computer and no one else uses it.

I forgot my password and dont know what to do


if it's a bios password, meaning the password is requested on a black screen before windows starts, you can go inside the chassis and remove the round flat battery on the motherboard (about the size of a dime) for several minutes and bios will reset killing the password. if it's a windows password you might be able to boot into safe mode.

My computer has a password in the BIOS Setting. i forgot it


Do you know what the password is? If so, enter the bios and change it. When asked for a new password, just hit enter. If it asks a second time to confirm the password, just hit enter again.

Good luck

Forgot password on acer aspire 3680 windows vista basic


I've never had an acer ... but if you forgot the windows password, you're frozen. you need to run the computer in safe mode, some computers then don't requier a password. and in safe mode you can also access it via administator account, often without password, if with, someone has it, probably the person that installed the os for you. the administrator account let's you play with the passwords a lot more that your own account does.
to run in safe mode, you need restart and watch for any messages on black screen like "press F1 for bios", gist watch for something about selecting the startup mode and press the button listed. if you have quiet boot - a picture instead of most of the black screens and writings, pres escape during it to remove it. you should have the key instructions somewhere.
everything goes pretty quickly, so you might need to repeat things a bit to gett everything done fast enough.
when in safe mode, reset the vista password like usually - by the accounts manager or whatever vista has (I'm sticking to XP).

your motherboard's configurations is set to ask for password as soon as booting
try using the password Toshiba ( with capital T ) or toshiba ( small t ) .. normally that's the backdoor password for Toshiba laptops .. if either don't work .. try to hold the left Shift key as soon as you boot the pc .. this also can be a solution to bypass the password.. if none is working let me know :)
