There are many products out there that will allow you to reset Windows passwords. Try ERD Commander, MiniPE or the Ultimate Boot CD. All are CDs you can boot off of to reset that password. If you have Windows XP Home you can log into safe mode as "Administrator" with a blank password and reset any passwords from there. Without knowing your operating system I can't be any more specific.

How to know wifi password

The wifi password is set internal to the router by the router's administrator. If that was you, then you are saying you've forgotten the password. If that is NOT you, you are asking for the password. You must get that from the administrator of the router. If you have a used router, it may have been previously setup by another admin and you are trying to access it. If the previous administrator left the unit in its default state, it can be accessed at IP The default user name is to be left blank, and the default password is admin (lower case). If that doesn't work, you ay have no choice but to reset the router to get it back to defaults so you can gain access to it. There will be a reset switch somewhere on the unit (usually accessible thru a small opening) that you must press and hold for a period of time. Be warned that this will erase all custom setting in the router and will require a new setup, but will allow you to regain access using the default user name and password.

I have a toshiba laptop that I have had cleaned by a friend. now it requires a pass word and mine does not work. howdo I set it back to manufacturer standards?

Ask your friend if he has put the password. Another option is try go to CMOS setup if you can & disable the option of password. But this seems unlikely. Open the laptop if you know how to open it. Locate for the reset switch, it can be found below keyboard. It can be a reset switch or just put a jumper across it for few seconds & your laptop will reset. If there is nothing like this, locate CMOS battery. Remove it for about half a minute & put it back.

It is possible that the main Administor account is unlocked, Turn off the computer and then turn it back on, while it is starting press the F8 key every 2 Secs until you see a menu, then pick SAFE MODE from the list, when the computer starts you should see your profile and the administrator profile, click on the administrator and then Windows should start up, If this works go into Start and then control panel, click on USERS, if you dont see users click on switch to classic mode on the top left, after you open USERS then click on your profile and remove your password. after this restart the computer and you should be able to log into your account. If this does not work you will need to download software to unlock it.

Hi Friends,

i got confuse a little.... which password u forgot either power on password or Windows logon password.

whatever it is here is the solution.

1. for power on password :

Remove the Battery and put back... that's it.

2. Windows logon password :

Type 2 times : Ctrl+Alt+Enter, u will get windows 2000 logon prompt, there type Administrator then enter, obviously u will get in,

Incase if u r not, then use WINDOWS KEY ENTERPRISE software, Surely this will help u.

If any problem Pl. let me know... I will do my best...

Thanks and Regards

Password Reset?!?!

resetting a machine back to factory default aint a good plan, all you need is to find the admin password out, this is stored in 08 mode ( test mode D ) it's code is 263 ( Administrator's password ( Maximum 10 digits ) )
switch the machine on holding down 0 & 8, keep them held down till a beep occurs ( the extension key should light up on the control panel ), the screen will then come up with Test Mode D, now key in 263 then press the green start button. you should now see the admin password on the screen / be able to change it's value back to 123456 or whatever you wish. press set on the screen to accept the new value / keep current value, then just switch off / back on as normal.
