    Is this the Windows log in password or the Bios Security password. If it is Windows log in password, have you tried loging in through SAFE MODE and using administrator with no password? There is software to reset the admin password but i need to know if it is the boot up security settings password or XP. SUGGESTION: If someone else owned it, I would just wipe that ****** out and start a new. Could be loused up with a bunch of spyware and viruses and make you sorry later.

You have to erase the password with "Active Password Changer 3.0.420" or "Offline NT/2K/XP Password Changer". download hiren's boot cd for these programs. disk must be loaded when the computer turns on because it is a bootable cd.

You have to reset the cmos by using the jumper on the board. Very tedious on a laptop, unless you have steady hands, I would not recommend to do it.

Need to change username and password on my laptop i have windows 7 ultimate

Did you get a recovery disk that the first buyer should have made? If not, you may need to borrow the exact same one from someone and use your key which you should have gotten when you bought it and reload the system. That's only if the seller can't or won't tell you what his is.

Created secure network see it using wireless on laptop key info

srry for the harrasment,u can do 1 thing..if u have a desktop computer connected directly to the router u can find the ip address of teh router and can go into the router setup page and change the security key,,or else u can connect an extra cable from ur laptop to the router and can enter the router page as well.
on ur desktop computer go to control panel-network connection-Local area connection,,if it says connected double click and u will find a box coming up with 2 tabs,,general and support,,click on support and find default gateway,,it shud typicall start with 192.168.x.x{depending on the class of ip address},then open up mozilla and type in the address at the top address bar.a small box with username and passwrd comes up.put"admin "in username and dnt put anything in passwrd field,,hit enter,,if the same box comes up then u had changed the passwrd during setup of the router{in tat case u have to call up the router manufacturer and do a hard reset of teh router and reconfigure the router to ISP settings}otherwise if u see a dlink window coming up,,that means u r in,,u search for wireless security and u will find the WEP key or the WPA key which is the network security key,,write it down exactly as it is as it is case sensitive

plz giv a good rating and best of luck

Whats Wrong with the Passwrd.

It sounds as though someone set a password without your knowledge. Take your model number and go to Funai's website to look up the owners manual
