By-pass windows' screensaver password

Hello world! Can somebody help me to bypass my windows screensaver password? What I do right now is push the power button continuously in order for me to log on again to windows. Is there any way to just tweak the registry or a utility available to reset the password? Help . . . please.

It's either you wanna bypass windows password (that is the screen that comes up everytime you turn on your computer and its asking for a password), or you wanna remove the screen saver password. im posting the solutions for both:

a. to bypass windows password:

  1. click on start then go to control panel
  2. click on user accounts
  3. click on remove password
b. to remove the screen saver password:
  1. minimize all applications/programs that are currently running on your computer until you can only see your desktop
  2. right click on any open area on your desktop
  3. click on properties
  4. go to the screen saver tab
  5. uncheck the box that says, "on resume, display welcome screen"
  6. hit apply then ok.
that should solve the problem. if you still got the same problem, let me know.

How do i set my timer for my screensaver-when my laptop is idle?


The option is under Screen saver options or there is an idle time shut off selection under Power Saver options as well. When you select your screen saver there is are specific options to customize how it shows and how long before it activates. Some screen savers have more options than others.

Hello everyone! I'm having some problems with my Acer Aspire 3634WLMi Notebook. The screen light is very dim - we've tried SIS Utility Tray but that doesn't help and I don't have Acer ePower Management...


Usally a sign that your backlight has gone as this would only happen if on battery power and on power saver mode otherwise.
if its anything other than windows 7 check your power management setting in control panel or just right click on the desktop and screensaver tab then power button.

How to stop my laptop from turning off when I am watching or reading something


1. right click on an empty spot on your desktop-select properties. select the screen saver tab-using the drop down arrow by the screensaver box change the screensaver to "none", click apply.

2. while at the screensaver tab, click on the "power" button- click on the down arrow on the right side of the Power Schemes box and select "always On"- click APPLY and OK

This turns off your screensaver and power management for continuous play of dvds or extended reading time..
you will have to yurn off the monitor manually if you leave the computer running all night as it wont auto powersave now...

How do i turn on the media center buttons?


Yo can create custom shortcut by doing the following : Start > All Programs > Windows Media Center, and right click on it. Select properties. Under "target" you will see "%windir%\ehome\ehshell.exe".
Simply add the switches you wish Media Center to start with and hit OK. For example, if your shortcut looked like the following: %windir%\Ehome\Ehshell.exe /nostartupanimation /noshutdownui /mediamode


Hope this helps.
Here is a list bellow.
/nostartupanimation stops the startup sound and Windows Media Center logo "pebble" going off into the distance /noshutdownui removes the "shutdown" item from the tasks menu /mediamode starts in media only mode (no close/minimize/maximize options in top right corner) /widescreen start in widescreen mode, even on 4:3 display (windowed only) /nochrome display windowed mode Media Center but without the window chrome /playallmusic plays all your music instantly /playfavslideshow plays your favorite slideshows only /playfavslideshowwithmusic plays your favorite slideshow with music /playslideshow plays all slideshows /playslideshowwithmusic plays all slideshows with music /screensaver starts the Media Center screensaver /configuress starts Media Center at the "configure screensaver" screen

I forgot my windows vista password, can u help me get into my computer and fix it


Andy, Getting over a lost password has only one solution. And that is to reinstall the Windows again. What you wanted to protect, you will be destroying yourself. It is the biggest crime in the computing and communications world. So, please reinstall the Vista. I know no one like to hear such verdicts but sometimes you have to severe a limb to save the body from cancer.

There is a password when i open thmy laptop..


If it normally starts up and goes directly to the desktop then you may not have a password set. When prompted after standby then do not enter anything for the password.

Getting frequent black screens on 1501 Inspiron Laptop


Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.
