If you do not know the password, you can get a hint to your password by checking the password hint icon. (Your password hint is located on the Welcome screen beside the password prompt)

For more details regarding password hint, kindly click here

If you cannot retreive the password by using the above method, you will have to set the password by logging in as the Administrator. Click here for the detailed steps.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

I got a friends laptop its a sony and he wants to change his password and get a new easier one, cant remember password to change it.

The only way to remove the password is to recover unit back to factory settings or use a password removal tool that can be booted from a flashstick or bootable CD, there are many available for download, but thats it unfortunately.

Pattern lock out

The only way to reset the phone is to be logged in, and you cannot do that as you are locked out. Since you bought your phone from T-Mobile, take it back and they may be able to help you with it. Since you are locked out, there may not be much else you can do. In the future, don't put a password into a phone until you get used to it. Try a session with the user guide. Putting in a wrong password 10 times, could lock you out permanantly.

I bought a laptop of one of my neighbors and we wanted to put a lock on it so we clicked on creat new password and it told us to put in our exsisting password but we never put one on there and our neighbor...

If you're lucky you may have set it to <nothing>... try just hitting <enter> and see if you're in.

Otherwise you may need to check the user manual (or the manufacturer's website) for the default password.. something like "system" or "admin" or the laptop name.

Good luck!

I bought my friends apple computer and i cant get a hold of him so i cant use the computer cuz its locked and i don't have the password

Unfortunately, we have no means of separating valid requests of this type from requests posted by people with stolen laptops. When work of this type arrives at our shop, we have the means to unlock the Mac, but we will perform content and serial number checks to ensure the machine was acquired properly. And yes, we have identified stolen machines in this manner. Even stipulating that you are an honest owner, posting unlocking instructions here would empower other readers who are not. If you can't get hold of your friend, I recommend you bring your machine in to an Apple-certified establishment and have the work performed for you.
