    wow...only way is with the password hint that you would have used when setting it up..otherwise, it's quite a big deal.

    when/if you actually get this back on, I recommend setting up a back door admin account(control panel/user accounts/) to keep this from happening too much

If you have forget your windows log in password and you don't have any important information on your lap. Then you should make system recovery. Using the system recovery CD/DVD shipped with your laptop.

BE AWARE AFTER USING SYSTEM RECOVERY YOU WILL LOOSE EVERY THING INSTALLED OR SAVED INFORMATION AFTER FIRST BOOT.

For more information tell me i will clear it.

Thanks

I bought a acer notebook yesterday.....put a new password in........today when i started it up it said my password was wrong.......what can i do .......this comp is less than 24 hours old..........


I believe probably the easiest and safest way for you is remove your Windows OS Passwords with Windows Password Recovery tools. I found a good one at http://www.reset-windows-password.com last week, and then I downloaded it and used it to remove the lost password within only few minutes. Furthermore, the powerful tool didn't cause a little data lose. It's worth an attempt.

Hi haymakedd,

There are ways that you can get into your laptop. The easiest one is by changing your password in Safe Mode. Here's how:

1. To go to Safe Mode, once you start up the computer immediately keep on tapping the F8 button. Keep on tapping it until you got the boot options.

2. Select Safe Mode.Once you're already inside Safe Mode you can go ahead and change your password.

3. Go to Control Panel.

4. Then, choose User Account.

5. Inside User Account choose your account and change password.

Make sure to take note of your new password. You can then go ahead and reboot your PC and log in to Windows normally.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Sister has forgotten password


Hi,

If she cannot remember the password you can reset it. This will require a seperate computer with a CD burner and a blank CD to make a bootable disk, then simply follow the instructions on the page linked below.

Before resetting the password check the lights for your keyboard though. You may have your number lock turned on which will turn 789UIOKJLM into 7894561230 creating a number pad on your keyboard. If this is the case find the key marked "num lk" if it is the same colour as the letters pressing it should disable the number pad, if it is surrounded by a line or a different colour you will need to hold down the Fn key then press num lk to enable/disable the numberpad, you should see a light with a picture of a lock come on and off to denote number pad on or off. Ensure it is off then retry logging on with her password. If it still doesn't work, then procede to the link below and follow the instructions carefully.
