There is a small hole somewhere on the back (usually). Get a needle or a staple pin it down to push the button inside the hole. Hold the button 30 seconds to reset the ruter. After the reset you'll have to set it again as it is reset to its defaul user settings (user, password etc). Be sure that you have all the necessary info - IP adress to set it up and default user and password for your ruter (this info is in the manual, a Cd or a sticher on the bottom side of the ruter)

Can't unlock admnistrator macbook pro i7 4GB RAM


Boot into Single User Mode and remove a setup file
  • Restart the Mac holding down the Command+S keys, this will take you into Single User Mode and it's Terminal interface
  • You'll need to check the filesystem first:
  • fsck -fy
  • Next, you must mount the root drive as writeable so that changes will save:
  • mount -uw /
  • Now, type the following command exactly, followed by the enter key:
  • rm /var/db/.applesetupdone
    reset-forgot-mac-password.jpg
  • After removing the applesetupdone file, you need to reboot, type 'reboot' and hit enter
Stage 2) Create a New User Account upon System Boot
You aren't finished, but the hard part is now over - no more command lines, you'll now be in the familiar Mac OS X GUI to finish the password reset process. In this step we just create a new user account as if you just got a new Mac:
  • Upon reboot, you will be presented with the traditional "Welcome Wizard" startup screen just like when you first get a Mac
  • Follow the welcome wizard and create a new user account - making the account name different from the account whose password you want to recover
  • Continue on and boot into Mac OS X with this newly created user account, this new user account is an Administrator and has administrative access
Stage 3) Reset the Forgot Password via System Preferences
You are almost done, now you just need to reset the forgotten user account password using the Accounts control panel:
  • Once you are booted into Mac OS X, click on the Apple logo and then navigate down to "System Preferences"
  • Click on the "Accounts" icon in System Preferences
  • Click on the Lock icon in the lower left corner of the "Accounts" preference window and enter the newly created user credentials, this enables you to change other user accounts and reset other users passwords
  • On the left side user panel, select the user account containing the forgotten password
  • With the user of the forgotten password account selected, click on the "Reset Password" button
  • Enter a new password for that user, be sure to include a meaningful hint so you don't forget it again!
  • Close System Preferences and reboot the Mac
  • You can now login to the previously inaccessible user account using the newly reset password! All user files and settings are maintained as before the password was forgotten
Optional: If you'd like, you can delete the temporary account you created to reset the users password. This is wise for security purposes.

I got a dell latitude laptop from work. The only problem is that because it is old and was taken off our inventory list I can't seem to get it unlocked. The admins had forgotten the password for this...


Here's how to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll have it resolved soon :-)
