Top Four Efficient Windows 7 Password Recovery Methods


Have you ever lost your Windows password? If you have, you must know the feeling. That means you could not use your computer and your work cannot move on. So, are there some ways to retrieve your lost Windows password? Yes, here we will show you several methods for Windows 7 password recovery, and then you do not have to ask for help everywhere.

On this article we will share with you four efficient methods to recover windows 7 password, which are arrayed from easy to difficult.

Method 1: Use an available administrator account

Need: An available administrator account

If you have an available administrator account on your system, you can get your password back easily. Logon Win 7 system with the admin account, and then you can come to the Control Panel and change or delete other accounts' passwords. Just three steps:

Step 1: Click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or remove user accounts

Step 2: Choose the locked administrator account

Step 3: Click Change the password or Remove the password. And then you can change or remove the lost or forgotten password

Method 2: Use Windows password reset disk

Need: a Windows password reset disk (USB key)

Windows 7 allows us to create a Windows password reset disk (USB key) in case that we lost the Win 7 logon password. When we lose the password of Win 7, we can reset a new one with the created disk. The weak point is that you can only create the disk before losing your Windows 7 password. If you do not create that, it could not help. You could follow these five easy steps:

Step 1: When you enter a wrong password on the logon screen, a hint will appear: The user name or password is incorrect. Click OK and you are back to the logon screen. Insert the created Windows password reset disk (USB key) to your Win 7 PC and click Reset password...

Step 2: Click Next

Step 3: Choose your disk and click Next

Step 4: Type a new password and click Next

Step 5: Click Finish and your lost password should be reset

Method 3: Use third party Windows 7 password recovery software

Need:
1. A blank CD/DVD or an USB flash drive
2. A computer that has a CD/DVD writer
3. Windows 7 password recovery software

There is plenty of third party software for password recovery on Windows 7 online. Most of them are designed to create a Windows password recovery disk. With the disk you can recover your lost Windows 7 password. We highly recommend Windows Login Recovery and use it as an example. What you need to do is just three steps:

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery

Step 2: Burn a Windows password recovery disk with the software

Step 3: Recover the Windows 7 password with the disk

Method 4: Use Windows 7 installation disc

Need: Windows 7 installation disc

Installation disc of Windows 7 can not only install the system for you, but also restore the system. If you have created a system backup image before you created the Windows 7 password, the installation disc could help you to restore your system to the early status (the status that has no a logon password). Then you could access your computer without password. You can follow these five steps:

Step 1: Insert the installation disc to the locked Win 7 PC

Step 2: Restart your computer from the installation disc

If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You might need to change your computer's BIOS settings.

Step 3: Choose your language settings, and then click Next

Step 4: Click Repair your computer

Step 5: Select a recovery option, and then click Next

It is terrible when we lose the Windows password, but you do not need to worry about that from now on. Above four Windows 7 password recovery methods could help you to recover Windows 7 password and regain access the computer.

When connect to internet says no modem


Hi.. Check your modem cables 1st of all for loose connection. And make sure that the OS your using is compatible with your modem, I know it might feel a bit strange..the link b/w modem and OS. But I had 1 personal experience when ma modem was not compatible with ma OS i was using (LINUX).
There are also possibilities tat your devise is not installed. So go to device manager. Check if any yellow exclamation marks there. Delete the device showing that, press refresh button, feed in your modem drivers when it asks.
Go to settings. Select control panel.In control panel, select system. In system
select devices(?) manager. Check there to
see if you have a COMM port enabled. The symptoms included that a commnication or dialing program can dial out.

Check your BIOS settings too..see if the port is dissabled..
N if nothing works use a diff modem..!!

EXPLORER WON'T RESPOND


i am sorry it is late i kind of read over the fact that your modem works and dowloaded xp sp3.
if your internet explorer doesnt go to any webpage check the following settings in internet explorer :
tools>internet options>connections
now if you work on a dial up modem your connection should be in there.
if its not just add one and follow the steps accordingly.

if your on a Local Area Network (LAN) this should be empty

also go to : Lan settings
in the same tab
and make sure no proxy info is entered that should all be off and empty.
you can click : Automatically detect settings
to on.

If you cannot run Setup, click Log Off on the Start menu, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then log on with as an administrator. • Turn off any firewall or Internet connection sharing software on your computers. Your base station replaces these functions. The Setup Wizard cannot continue if they are enabled. • Do you have a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) Internet connection or a static Internet Protocol (IP) address? The Setup Wizard prompts you to type your user name, password, and service name for a PPPoE connection. For a static IP address, you must have the IP, subnet, and ISP gateway addresses. If you have one of these types of connections, gather this information from your ISP.
Part 2: Install the Software and Connect the Hardware loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); 1. Insert the wireless base station Setup CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive. If the Setup Wizard does not start automatically, click Start, click My Computer, double-click the CD-ROM icon, and then double-click Setup or Setup.exe. 2. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the software. 3. In the second part of the installation, select the option to set up the wireless base station, and then continue through the rest of the Setup Wizard. 4. When the Setup Wizard instructs you to connect your wireless base station, position the wireless base station close to your modem and computer, and near the center of your intended network area. If you want to set up the wireless base station vertically, attach the included stand. 5. On the back of your computer, unplug the Ethernet cable that connects your computer to your broadband modem. Leave the other end of the cable plugged in to the modem. 6. Plug the cable in to the "To Modem" port on the back of the base station. The base station is now connected to your modem. 7. Plug one end of the blue Ethernet cable that came with your base station in to the Ethernet port that is labeled 1 on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. This is the same port from which you just disconnected the modem cable.

Important The modem must use its original Ethernet cable or one of the same type to connect to the base station. 8. Plug one end of the power supply that came with your base station into the power jack on the back of the base station. Plug the other end into an electrical outlet. The power indicator light on the front of the base station should turn on. 9. Return to the Setup Wizard, click Next, and then go to Part 3 of this article.
