Hello,

If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.


Please mention which operating system you are using.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then their is no way to get in other than reinstalling the operating system.
In XP their are two ways to change the password.
1st method - Restart the system and when you see the computer manufacturer's name Dell or HP or any other start tapping the F8 button 5 to 8 times. A menu will come. Choose the safe mode option and then press enter on the next screen on selection of the os. Your computer will now show u a new account by the name of administrator. If you had an admin password then u won't be able to get in here either. But most people dont have this so log in to this account and go to the control panel and you will be able to remove the password for your own account. Restart system and you are good to go.
2nd method ( Required only if you have a password for this hidden administrator account )
Boot from the Windows XP cd. When the cd stops loading at a point press Enter on the first screen, then press F8 to accept the licensing agreement and then press R for repair. When the repair process starts and you see Windows being loaded press Shift and F10 together, the command prompt will open up. Type the following command.
net user user name *
(user name means whatever ur username is that appears on your login screen)
after this the computer will ask u to type a password so just type any password. Better to type a really short one becasue when you type the password on this screen you won't see the cursor moving or your password being typed in.
Press Enter after typing the password.
It will ask you to retype the password. Again the password would be visible when you type.
Press Enter and it will tell you command completed successfully. If it does not work then retype the commands again carefully. Just make sure u type a short password, probably a one letter password and u wont have any issues.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Hi cheewee6...
Try this solution to your problem


Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

Simple contact you local Jag dealership and ask them, they will need the VIN No and there is a small charge (about £8). Then follow the instructions on http://www.bluejag.co.uk to enter code.

I bought second and computer but i dnt know my motherboard number how can i install video graphic?


Hi,

Inside the computer BIOS there is a serial number, which has includes a code for the manufacturer. So, what a hardware identification utility does is to read the BIOS serial number and to decipher it for you.

Also common place to put serial and model numbers is on the side of the expansion card sockets (the white strips on the left). You will probably have to remove the motherboard to read them.

Let me know for any clarifications.

It will not boot up, fans spin, no video and 3-4 beeps


If you have encounter this kind of trouble this is a RAM problem which is beeping. B

Beep code pattern on a PhoenixBIOS system means that there has been an issue while testing the DRAM refresh. This could be a problem with the system memory, an expansion card, or the motherboard.

Random Access Memory (RAM) is the "working memory" in a computer. Additional RAM allows a computer to work with more information at the same time which can have a dramatic effect on total system performance.

RAM is typically referred to simply as "memory" even though other types of memory may exist inside a computer.

At this time you need to check the memory. Remove the memory and turn it on identify in there is sound provided.

Memory is installed in the memory module slots located in the motherboard. These slots are easily locatable by looking for the small hinges on either side that lock the memory in place. Certain sizes of modules may need to be installed in certain slots so always check with your motherboard manufacturer before purchase or installation.

Permission on acer 5315


Yes you can turn them off. Go to the control panel and find your firewall settings. You need to config which programs you want to allow permanently. You should have someone who knows what they are doing, ie. service tech, config the whole PC for you. Sounds like that has not been done yet.
