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 need to change my email on MySpace.. And I also forgot my password.. Can someone help me??


If you still know the user name that is linked to your account but no longer know your password try to log in with what ever you think it may be. Then after it has been denied access they usually provide you with a link to reset your password using the email address you used for the account.After you request to reset your password they should send you a e-mail. just click on the link provided in the e-mail to reset your password.

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.

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.

Cant recieve emails for password change


You're screwed, if you don't have any recovery questions set and you can't access the e-mail you can't get your account back. You could try brute forcing it, but that would be illegal and probably not possible depending on the security level of the site.

Forgot my password


Use the "Password reset" link or "Forgot my password" link. If neither work, you can not recover the password and are left making a new email account instead.

You can always try to contact Yahoo and ask them for help, but you are left with the burden of proving it is your account...they usually deny all request for this type of help.

Can't get my yahoo mail because it's not accepting my password and I can't verify my identity because it's not accepting my pet's name. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


SOMETIMES This happens because somebody tried to make a large amount of attempts to guess your password and enter your account. Many times, it's not actually someone trying to access the account, they just know that by sending a huge amount of requests, they can cause the user problems by having their account closed.
The servers understand that a human can make about 5 or 6 attempts a minute, this would be normal if you had forgotten your password or made a typo etc... and at this rate, it would take 18011 years to guess your password.
An automated program however, could make 1000s of requests a minute or even more! Its when the server experiences these numbers, for your own security, it locks your account.
Fix:
First, visit http://login.yahoo.com/config/login Don't Worry! The first attempt will fail, say incorrect password or something. It's the second attempt that matters. What you will see this time, is that you have a word verification. This is a secure system by which only humans could be making the request, bots cannot see the text, they see encrypted numbers.
For some, this is it, the account will log in again! For others, it's not so. You have to wait up to 48hrs for the account to come back.

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.
