There are a couple things you can try. First, try logging on with a username of Administrator and no password (just leave it blank) and see if that will log you on. You'd be surprised how many systems have this as default. If you can't get in that way, and you have access to another machine with Internet access (which, apparently, you do), you can build a BartPE disk.

You will also need to put on the BartPE disk a plug in that will allow you to reset the admin password or create a new admin account, such as

Oy..only way to do this is from the installation cd that came with the system. Did you try the password 'hint' option(question mark next to the password panel) to see if that jogs your memory? got backup?

Someone used my computer and did not log out.

Hello Barbara,

You can use following options.

Option 1: Easy One
Press and hold the power button between 5 to 7 seconds
This will turn off the laptop
wait for 20 sec after shutting down
Start laptop again
Laptop is ready to use.

Option 2: Moderate one
Remove the power cord from laptop
take the battery out
put the battery back
start your computer

Option 3: Difficult one
At this point I am not sure which Windows are you using and how do you usually log-in to the system.
I am guessing you got a new laptop, with Windows 7 installed.

The computer might asking you to press Clt + Alt+ Del to unlock the computer.
You can also see there is small button on screen which says "Switch User"
click on "Switch User" button
It will then ask your user name and password
Use your username and password the one you usually use to log-in to the system.
once you are logged in
restart the computer
it might ask you "other users are log-in do you wana continue"
press enter
the computer will restart and now you can use it as normal as before.

Hope these options might help

Thank you

Unlock code password

Please be more specific about which unlock code you need. If you can not sign into your windows account; you may be able to get into your computer using the built in 'Administrator' account. Restart your machine, and hold F8 while it loads. You should get a black and white menu asking if you'd like to start windows normally or enter into safe mode. Choose one of the safe mode options, and log in with the Administrator account.
If you can not get the menu to show up, try unplugging/turning off your machine while windows loads, and then restarting it, it will pop up saying that windows was unable to start correctly, and will ask you what you want to do. Safe mode will be one of the options under that menu as well.
If the built in administrator account option does not work, try going into 'Safe Mode With Command Prompt'.
In the command prompt; we will create a new user for you.
In the command prompt, type 'net user *NEW_USERNAME* *NEW_PASSWORD* /add ' , obviously *NEW_USERNAME* should be the username you want, and *NEW_PASSWORD* should be the password you want.
Then, type in 'net localgroup Administrator *NEW_USERNAME* /add', which will add the account you just created as an administrator. Restart the machine, and this account should show up as an option to log in with the username and password you just set.

I can't log in to my account on my Dell PC?

Now which operating system are you running ?

Forgetting your Windows XP login details might at first seem like a disaster. Don't panic though; your login password and username are easily recovered by changing the login details to that of the administrator.

Begin with your computer turned off, and then turn it on. You will need to log in to your computer manually and this can only be done in the load-up screens. Wait until your computer reaches the Windows login screen. The screen usually displays a "Welcome" message. Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Delete" keys two times at the Windows login screen. Your computer will automatically reveal a Classic Login box. Type "Administrator" (without quote marks) into the "Username" field and leave the "Password" field blank. Windows automatically creates an Administrator account when your computer is first booted up; in this account you can alter or change any user's login details. Navigate through the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel." In the Control Panel explorer, double-click on the "User Accounts" icon to open a new window. Select "Change an Account" in the User Accounts window and select the username you want to alter. From here you can edit the user's name and password, but you can also alter the user's picture, account type and .NET password. Restart your computer to login with your new username and password.

I lost my username and password to reconnect to my router. How can I find it out?

Hold in the reset button for 30 seconds, unplug the router for 30s while keeping the reset held, and plug it back in, still holding reset in for another 30s. Then hook an ethernet cable from it to your computer and open up in your web browser. You can then log in with username "admin" and password "password" to reconfigure the network with a new username and password.
