Question about ASUS Eee 4G Notebook

2 Answers

Password Went into Personalization on my laptop. Changed name and destop theme, but did not select password. I accidentally took the x off of the "log me in automatically" tab. Now when I start the unit, I need a password and can't log in. Tried going in to set up as well as hitting the F9 key to restore settings. No go. Is there a password I can use to get in?

Try starting your unit in Safemode. Most configurations when started on safe mode has only the Administrator as the displayed user on it. And that user is seldom equipped with password. If you're successful, go USER ACCOUNTS and manage the different accounts in your computer. Create another account and give it an administrator privilege. If you want to create a password for such account, make sure to remember it. Reboot and log-in to the account you just created and restart making the personalization you wish.

I think that invictus is referring to windows on eee whereas karlS is referring to the linux operating system eeexandros...

The best option would be to restore factory settings and reload your eee pc. This is extremely easy and takes less than 2 mins. When you turn on your eee pc hold down the F9 key, it will then present you with an option to redtore to factory settings, this will wipe all data and douments and passwords. Follow what it tells you to do and then when you restart your eee pc it will ask you for a name and password like it did when you first got it.

Hope this helps

You can have your computer remember your user name and password whenever you try to log in. You just need to do the following;
1. go to Browsing History under Internet Options
2. delete Cookies, Cache, Temporary Internet files and Password.
3. open IE or any browser log in using your user name and password
4. then there would either be a pop-up or a notification found on top or at the bottom of the screen asking if you'll remember the user name / password.
5. try to log out and close the browser and then open a fresh browser and try to log in and type the user name and password
6. select or put a check mark under the pop-up remember password

Windows Password Recovery is right what you need in your case. The program is designed to reset Windows login password once you accidentally forgot it or have no access to your system. By burning a bootable CD, you can enter almost any computer with Windows administrator login password protected within a few seconds. Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.
Step 2: Prepare a blank CD/USB and run the software and use it to burn the ISO file to it.
Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive (Start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup)
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password.

How do i reset the pass work on my thinkpad. somebody changed it and wont give the new pass word to me


If you remember your administrator password, or if your administrator has no password, simply start your laptop in safe mode. Do this by pressing F8, a list of options will be displayed. Select Safe Mode.

In safe mode, it will ask you for the account to log in with, select "administrator" and log in.
When you successfully log in, delete the user account with the changed password and create a new account with your password.

I made a password then logged off to see if it worked and it won'


password protection is difficult defeat.

the easiest solution is to RESTORE the unit,
following the ASUS instructions, in the manual
that came with your unit.

important note: this does NOT affect any work
you have on your SD Cards or USB flash drives.
these will still work in another computer, if needed.

RESTORE from the DVD or by holding down the F9
key as the unit boots-up (see manual).

after the restore is finished, be sure to go the
SETTINGS tab, select PERSONALIZATION icon.
then check the box - "log me in automatically"
