How do I get into my acount


When you turn a pc on and you set a password your are presented with a windows to enter your password. Obviously if you forgot your password or don't remember it well then you can't log. But if you are sure you know your password then your profile got corrupted or your machine could be infected.
You will need to bypass the password with external software.

No problem with utube on android but seems my desktop uses a different password ie my gmail one and therefore cannot access all my favourite songs. why? Can you help please as wanted to put on a flash...


Your desktop may have "remembered" a different account. If it automatically logs you in, just log out and then log back in with your current Id and password.

For got password to login in how do i fix this


brendapace3,
What are you trying to login into? Your Windows computer or a website?

If you are trying to log into your computer and forgot the password.
Try starting in Safe Mode, by restarting the computer, and as soon as you see the Computers Manufacturers logo start pressing F8 on the keyboard. Select Safe Mode from the options (usually option 3). When it loads select the Administrator account (unless you set a password when you installed your operatinsg system, this should not have a password set. Leave the password field blank and log in. Once logged in, go into Control Panel, Select user accounts and remove or change the password for your user account. Save changes. Exit control panel and Restart the computer.

If you forgot the password for a website, most sites have a Forgot Password or Need assistance with Logging in link. That link is usually under the login boxes.

Hope this helps

E-Machines W3107 will not let me log into windows


Do you have an administrative login ID and password? If so, boot in safe mode and trying logging in with that login information. Is this happening because you can remember the password? Did you setup a password hint at login?

Put a passsword in and now i can't remember what it is so now i can't log into my computer.


I'm assuming this is for Windows. Try just hitting enter in case you didn't set a password. If that doesn't work, you can try looking for you motherboard documentation. Sometimes you can change a jumper setting on it to clear out the password. You could also try removing the battery for a few minutes from the MOBO.

Resetting the password


Remove the battery . Short the grounding strips made for this purpose on the mother board,or the battery terminals,if you can't find the strips.  Reinsert the battery and the pass word will be gone.

Password and username


See if you can log on using the username Administrator and no password. Was there any other user accounts on the computer?
