How can i log in if my password quit working?


What do you mean it quit working? What type of error message are you getting when you put your password in?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Try booting into safe mode first. During boot up press F8 a few times, you should get a safe mode menu to; start windows normal, or safe mode, chose safe mode an see if that will get you logged in.

Hp 530 laptop windows startup password forgotten how do i reset it?


Please Be aware that when using this option you will permanently lose access to any e‑mail messages that were stored on the hard drive (ie. like through Outlook) or encrypted files that are on that account.

If you only have One Account on the PC you are going to need to boot into "Safemode" to do this :

1. Restart PC
2. As it is Restarting tap the F8 key over and over until you see a "Start Up Options Menu"
3. Select Safe Mode and Press Enter
4. Voila! You are in Safe Mode
5. Log Out/ Switch User
6. You Should See and Icon for Your User Account and Administrator
7. Select Administrator.
_________________________________________________

Part 2

Once Logged in Follow these steps:

1. Open Local Users and Groups by clicking the Start button , typing lusrmgr.msc into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER.‌
2. Double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.
3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.
4. Type and confirm the new password.
5. Restart your PC normally
6. Log in with your new password ;-)

I hope this Helps. Take Care =)

Hi.
It depends what is causing the lockup.
If you don't have anything on the display, then it is probably a printer jam. If you have anything at all on the display, then you can try a flag clear:

Turn the power off at the wall.
Turn the key to Program mode.
Hold down RECEIPT FEED button while turning on at the wall.
Wait 5 seconds
Let go of RECEIPT FEED
You should see 'FFFFFFFFF' on the display.
Press SUBTOTAL
Turn the key back to Reg mode, and try it. You might have to log on to the machine if you normally use logon codes.
