Just a few days ago, I lost my windows vista admin passwords. I solved the trouble with the help of windows password reset tool. It not only support XP/Vista/2000/NT, but also compatible with windows 7, I tested it on my computer installed with Windows 7 and remove the local user and admin accounts password successfully. It's worth trying. You can download it from: http://www.reset-windows-password.com/reset-windows-7-password.html

I suggest you try hard to remember your windows passwords, and try them a few times. If this still doesn't word, You have only two ways to solve this problem. Reinstall Windows or reset the old password with windows password reset tool. I do not recommend you to reinstall Windows, which may lead a data loss. So if you really can not remember the password, try following steps:
1. Download Window Password Seeker on another PC.
2. It is an ISO file. Burn the ISO file to a CD/DVD or a USB flash drive.
3. Boot the locked computer from CD/DVD and remove Windows password

I believe probably the easiest and safest way for you is remove your Windows OS Passwords with Windows Password Recovery tools. I found a good one at http://www.reset-windows-password.com/how-to-reset-windows-password.html last week, and then I downloaded it and used it to remove the lost password within only few minutes. Furthermore, the powerful tool didn't cause a little data lose. It's worth an attempt.

I had the same problem as you. when i try to boot up in safe mode, holding down the f8 key it, opens in the same window as before, asking for my password. This kind of situation can only use the third party software. I think Windows Password Seeker is very great.

There are three way for you.

Usually, we can recover Windows admin password in two traditional ways. The first is to change Windows password with another admin account; the second is to recover the previous password with the windows password recovery disk that had been created before you forgot the password. Take Windows XP for example,

1 At the Windows XP login prompt when the password is entered incorrectly click the reset button in the login failed window.

2 Insert the password reset diskette into the computer and click Next.

3 If the correct diskette Windows XP will open a window prompting for the new password you wish to use.

However, we offen ignore the important of security until we have been locked out of computer. Fortunately, there is still the last way that can unlock your computer without reinstalling - erase Windows password with Windows password recovery CD, which can recover admin password for Windows 7/XP/Vista/NT/2000/2003.... Take Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 for example, followings are the steps to create the reset CD

1.Download Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 from Official site http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com

2.Decompress the Windows password Recovery Tool and note that there is an .ISO image file. Burn the image file onto an blank CD with the burner freely supported by PasswordSeeker

3.Insert the newly created CD into the locked computer and re-boot it from the CD drive.

4.After launched the CD, a window pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts) select one of the accounts that you have forgotten its password to reset it. Just one press, this software can remove screen password instantly.


Personally, I prefer to use the third way. It is fast and safe.

You can reset windows user account password in safe mode. But if you forgot administrator password, you have to reinstall windows OS or use windows password recovery software. If you don't want to reinstall windows, maybe Google third party password recovery tool or Google Windows Password Reset 9.0 can help you.

Follow the steps in the users manual for eRecovery manager.
Page 47, I believe, gives details.


Re-install bundled software without CD
Acer eRecovery Management stores pre-loaded software internally for easy
driver and application re-installation.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 In the Recovery settings window, select Reinstall applications/drivers and
click Next.
6 Select the desired driver/application and follow the instructions on screen
to re-install.
At first launch, Acer eRecovery Management prepares all the needed software
and may take few seconds to bring up the software content window.

FACTORY SETTING


Either get the Restoration Disk, or a fresh, new Genuine copy of Windows.

Going by the US.
The disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call HP Support at 1-800-474-6836, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have your Serial Number written down to give to the nice representative.
On the back of your computer next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower, is a white Service Tag.
S/N = Serial Number.

This way that can make SURE they send you the correct disk.

For country's other than the US, use HP Support Worldwide,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/support.html

When you get the Restoration Disk, turn the computer on, and put the disk in the optical drive.
When asked choose - Full Installation (Destructive Installation)

Remember, this will take the computer back to Day 1, when it came from the factory.

Programs, or applications you have installed, or downloaded = GONE
Photos, videos, music, personal documents = GONE

Takes it back to before you got the computer.

(Repair, or Non-Destructive Installation, repairs the basic Windows files, and leaves your personal stuff alone. However there are times the computer needs to have a Full Installation )

Emachine 3653 factory restore


You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.

I want to restore my pc to its factory settings


Take the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks that were shipped with your computer, and reinstall Windows.

Some brand-name manufacturers (Dell, IBM, HP, COMPAQ) will accept telephone-orders for that set of disks, to match the disks that originally were shipped with the computer.

Can't restore emachine


Telephone eMachines, and order a replacement "System Recovery" set of CDs. Given the serial-number and model-number of your computer, they know what O.S. originally was factory-shipped with your computer, and they will replace that part.
Probably, a small fee for courier-shipping.

I need to restart my laptop to factory settings


if you want it to be factory settings, you would need the exact same Operatin Sytem installation disk which they probably didnt give you. The reason i say the same is because your serial numbers wont match as your original OS. Anyways if you only doing it to sell the laptop or two have a fresh Operating system, i would recomend you !1) Get a copy os Windows XP
2) Backup all your important files
3) Format your laptop and reinstall XP
4) Restore your files
5) Download (If you dont have it already) your drivers for your laptop. This can be found on Toshibas website.
6) Install all drivers and thats it. You have a Factory Set Laptop
