If it is asking you to enter the user name and password ,

just type in "administrator" as the user name and leave the pasword blank and press enter..

if the password for the admin is not set, if it asks for the password before it gets booted, you can bypass this password by using a small technique..

for this, you have to open the chassis(cabinet or CPU Tower),, on mother board, you see a small pin called jumper..
it is just half a centimeter width and one CM length.. initially it is set to
1 & 2 pins among three pins, you have to change it to 2 & 3 pins of the three pins..

then close the chassis and try to turn on the computer, this time, it informs you that, the jumper had been set to another settings, shall i restore the passwords.? of you say, continue, this erases all the passwords and turns the system on...


hope this helps..

How do I get the password? I need to restore my laptop


Not sure what password you are looking for. If you are going to restore your laptop to factory condition, you won't need any password. Just boot from the recovery CD/DVD or if you are presented with a recovery option at startup, choose that.

I forgot my e-recovery password, no recovery disks...


Don't you have created the password Recovery disk early?
If you do, you can sign into safe mode and recover the password.
If you don't have the password reset disk. you have to take use of the 3rd party utility,
Windows Password Recovery 6.0 is highly recommend. It is fast and easy to use.

Ipod nano lock forgot password


First, try to restore using iTunes. If this doesn't work, place your iPod in disk mode (hold the menu and center buttons down togther) and as soon as you see the Apple symbol come up hold the center and play (bottom) buttons down together until you see a check mark (disk mode). It may take a few trys.

Now connect your iPod to your computer. Go to my computer and right click the drive associate with your iPod (for example F: ) and scroll down to FORMAT. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - CHOOSE FAT32 and then check the "Quick Format" box. After you do this then use iTunes to Restore your iPods another time.
