Well this sounds like a BIOS pasword that happens before you even see windows loading. Unfortunatly with laptops it is not as easy to reset these password. My advice would be to find a local community or university college student that knows what they are doing or is in a A_ certification course. The procedure for resetting the bios is really easy.... on a desktop. But on a laptop there could be many layers you have to strip off and remove to trigger the reset.

I cant log on because i forgot my password


If you have any other user account with admin rights then only you can change the password..else you have to reinstall the operating system.
If you have a different account with admin accounts.
go to start then in run type in cmd\
you will see a black window.

Then follow the below steps:

To change a user's password at the command prompt, log on as an administrator and type:
net user user_name * /domain When you are prompted to type a password for the user, type the new password, not the existing password. After you type the new password, the system prompts you to retype the password to confirm. The password is now changed.

Alternatively, you can type the following command:
net user user_name new_password
When you do so, the password changes without prompting you again. This command also enables you to change passwords in a batch file.

Non-administrators receive a "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied" error message when they attempt to change the password.

I forgot my password for my acer and now I can't acess anything


Hello.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

My uncle installed k9 web protection in my laptop, how can i get rid of it since i dont know the password?


Solution

Please follow the instructions below to uninstall K9 Web Protection. Make sure you are connected to the internet before uninstalling K9 so your license can be released. If this is not possible, you can continue to uninstall, but you will need to request a new K9 license if you want to reinstall K9 in the future.

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Control Panel. If you can't see this option, it may be under "Settings"
  3. Click Add or Remove Programs
  4. Find Blue Coat K9 Web Protection in the list of programs and click it once.
  5. Click the Change/Remove button.
  6. Click Yes when you are asked whether you want to completely remove K9. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO UNINSTALL WITHOUT A PASSWORD. By design, K9 will block all Internet access should one attempt to uninstall without using a password. Attempts to modify K9 at a registry level will have the same effect.
  7. Enter your K9 administration password and click Uninstall. If you forgot your password, click the "Forgot Password..." link to have a temporary password emailed to you.
  8. When asked whether to reboot your computer, click Yes

After rebooting, K9 will be completely uninstalled.



You can find many solutions over the net but dont try it else the internet will be blocked.. just ask for a new password and they will mail you... You need to click on forgot password.

Type in password get message access denied or incorrect passwork and reboots


I was given an old computer years ago that was password protected I was told to pull the battery out for 10 sec. then reinstall it. It cleared the pass word protection. Note: pull the power cord push the start button to drain any power from the system, ground your self to protect the computer of any static electricity first.

Acess denied


the reason for this is probably because the backup and restore files for your notebook, reside there and are hidden, although this would only be a small sized partition, you should be able to right click and explore it. If you wish to access it you would have to right click on my computer icon>manage and then click on the partition and format it.
