You can do this without the Mac OS X install DVD, but be advised that doing this will trash any saved passwords in your Mac OS keychain.

  1. Power one your Mac and while the computer is starting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window. This boots the computer into single user mode.
  2. At the Localhost% prompt type:/sbin/mount -uw /
    /sbin/SystemStarterYou will then see various services starting up.

  3. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:passwd USERNAME (where USERNAME is the username you login with)It will then ask you to type the new password twice, so do so.

  4. After entering the new password, type:reboot

I turn my acer aspire 5315 on and its asking for me to enter current password but i dont know it and dont know how to get past it what do i do ?


if the password comes up straight away on the laptop and its on a black screen, its a bios password and will be expensive to remove,
only cheap method to try is if the laptop has a internal lithium battery, remove it for a minute then put it back in.
if its a windows password let me know there alot easier to remove.

How to unlock my computerfree


Click on Start, then Control Panel, and then on User Accounts.

Click on your name. The screen appears where you can make changes to your password - even delete it.

If you delete the password there, then next time you reboot your computer, you should not need to enter a password.

I forgot my administrator password


Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
