Trying to get system setup to install. Ive formatted the harddrive and did factory reset via the onboard button but I need the default admin password. Tried all that I know of.


There are several ways to break admin password.
like windows command prompt, if you know the command then you can use it otherwise you can use Recover My(windows admin) Password utility software.
Thank you

HOW TO RETRIEVE A PASSWORD FROM, OR CHANGE THE PASSWORD ON A WIRELESS ROUTER


How to retrieve a password or change the password for a wireless network from the router

Get an ethernet cable and plug your computer to the router with it..Click on your browser and in the address bar type the IP address for your particular router. (You can find this by googling the make and model of your router and the words IP ADDRESS.)

you will then be presented with the page after which you will have access to the router's control software. The page asks for username and password, they should, if they have not been altered from default, both be the word admin

Having entered these and pressed the enter button you should be in the control menus. Look for the wireless networking option, find it , click on it and you should find yourself in a screen on which your network's ID, (also known as SSID,) and password are displayed.
There may or may not be the option of turning the radio / wireless section off
temporarily...if it is available click on it to stop the wireless from broadcasting...if the option is not listed it obviously cannot be done!
Next, highlight the network password and delete it, then insert your new password, making a note of it and remembering that it will be case sensitive.
Make sure you SAVE THE CHANGES
Next ... If you have shut wireless/radio down reactivate it.
Then exit the utility.
Advanced users might want to create a password for getting into the router.
Anyway,after having exited detach the ethernet lead and click on your browser and click on the wireless networking/connection icon in the system tray, highlight your network and click on the connect button. You will then be presented with the option of entering your new password which should be entered exactly as you wrote it when in the router. You should, after a wait of a few seconds, be connected to the internet. Hide the new password and your ethernet cable if you have not put a new admin password on the router.
Then, BOBS YOUR UNCLE.

Pc has forgotten password


Hi! Here's some hint. Hardware level: You can reset hardware's BIOS on your pc system by jumpering the CMOS from normal and to reset position. You can find it near the battery on the pc's mainboard. Usually it has three terminals at normal position. Operating System Security Level: If you are having trouble with forgotten password in the operating system level try accessing it in safe mode. Try to access the "administrator" account without a password else use password recovery software bootable tool like Hirens etc... Goodluck.

HDD Rest


The LaCie Ethernet Disk Mini is an external hard drive that you can connect to your computer through an Ethernet connection.


Those who work on large projects that might require more memory than a computer has can use one of these devices to save information from the project.


Video editors often use hard drives such as these because videos often take up so much memory on their computers.


To keep information on the drives secure, change the administrator password from time to time.


Type "http://edmini" into your Web browser.


Logon to the page using your current login information. The default username and password is "Admin."


Click the "Users" tab.


Click "Change the Administrator Password."


Type and confirm the new password.

I got the password you sent, now it's telling me I'm using the wrong email address. I only have one and it's the one I've had a long time - can't understand this.


if you have forgotten your name of a certain account they must have a utility for forgotten passwords and account names which can send you an email containing both user name and password
if they do not have this facility you might have to open another account
remembering to make a log of your user name and password

Smartware lost password


I'm sorry to tell you that your password is embedded
into your HDD by way of an image via your RAM
and the only way to retrieve is is to remember .
passwords are user initiated and only can be altered
or retrieved by the user , even if you sent it to a HDD
data recovery company they too will not be able to
retrieve the forgotten information , sorry

How do I hack past HDD security key?


A security key is so powerful that it can keep everyone out till the correct key is supplied, even if the user is the maker if the key. So, friend if you have forgotten the key then you must pay, pay with the loss of the data that you wanted to protect. Now the only way is to format the HDD to be able to use. Yes, I agree that formatting will erase the data. BUT, you can try one thing, which I have not tried but MAY work. There are free SW available on the net that can retrieve the formatted data. This I have done and retrieved most of my .mp3 files. But that was when the HDD was not password protected. You can try it but whether it works or it doesnt I can not say. That is if you agree to format the HDD. But do let me know for my knowledge sake. And you can search for the SW on google. And whether you are successful (I hope you are) or not, you must use such passwords in future, should you have to, that you can remember easily.

Google for Hiren's bootdisk, burn it and boot with it. Or, it's the password for windows you have forgotten, right ?
