Reset Windows 7 Password


Anyone can forget a password. Okay you may think it will never happen to you, but think again, because it may just happen. Forgetting your user account password is no big deal providing you have taken the necessary precautions to create a Password Reset Disk.<br /> Sadly, if you haven't created a <b>Password Reset Disk</b> for your Windows operating system then gaining access to your PC will become a nightmare. I'm not saying that it is impossible, because it isn't. However, this tutorial refers to resetting your user account password with the aid of your <b>Windows Password Reset Disk</b>.<br /> The first you will know about your password being wrong is when you type the password in at boot up and a message appears telling you that <i><b>The User Name or Password is Incorrect</b></i>. It is at this stage that you need your <b>Password Reset Disk</b>.<br /> Once you have your <b>Password Reset Disk</b> (you should have created this either on a <b>floppy disk</b> or a <b>USB</b> flash drive. See: <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/create-windows-7-password-reset-disk-and-use-it-to-reset-lost-password/"><b>Create a Windows 7 Password Reset Disk</b></a>) you should insert the disk (or USB stick) into the relevant drive and then proceed as follows:<br /> <ol> <li>After you have typed in the wrong password a message will appear informing you that the <b>User name or Password is incorrect</b>, you should <a href="http://www.windows7password.net/forgot-windows-7-password/"><b>forgot Windows 7 Password</b></a>.

I can't get past the initial login screen for my Gateway dx4870. when i enter the password it says incorrect password


Reboot the computer As the computer is booting repeatadly press the F8 key as the computer is booting


If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only


Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu


Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice

select safe mode with command prompt


Click start run type cmd press Enter

black screen should open DOS mode

this will vary depending on your operating system


type in net user username

For eg. If you want to change administrator password , type net user Administrator


it will prompt you to enter the new password

enter the new password and the password is changed


hope this helps

Sir,I (sangeetadey82@rediffmail.com) forgpt my rediffmail password.Sir,gove my password soon


This has happened to many people "sangeetadey8".
This problem can be fixed easily. go to the rediffmail. When you go to sign in. it will say Incorrect Password/Email. Then below that, there should be an option.
Forgotten password? Click here. Forgotten Email? Click here.
Once you've clicked on either one of them. It will open another tab or not. Then you will be given some questions. that you would have created when you first made the rediffmail: sangeetadey82@rediffmail.com.
You will answer them how you wrote them when you created the rediffmail account.
You will then be able to change the password therefore getting your rediffmail back.
I hope this helped you sangeetadey8 :)

Hello, i purchased the bookkeeper 2009. installed on computer. followed all directions. 1st time i set it up iwould not allow me to use the password i had selected. ok, so i unistalled the program...


I hope the "password" you're trying to use isn't actually the CD key. If you're putting your password into the CD key column then it'll never work, check the side of your box for that.

If not, then make sure you're registering with the correct information. If you're registering with an email address then check it and see if there is a confirmation email. If not then make sure you're typing everything correctly.

They say my email address is wrong


did you check your caps key??..
if you forgot your password they may also say email address is incorrect because your email address AND your password is correct or both are wrong.
