Ive forgotten my password for my lockcode

Step 1: Enter Safe Mode

a) Start or re-start your computer.

b) Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.

c) Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

d) Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.

e) Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen

Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.

Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7

Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:

1. Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.

2. In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', 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, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)

Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

Hi, I owned a asus 1001P netbook, whenever i boot it up, it will freeze the at desktop screen and there is nothing i could do.

Welcome to Fixya

Freezing up issues usually caused by recent software installation, hardware modification or virus infection. Try to restore the computer back to the date where it is working fine as part of the basic torubleshooting. Power on the computer and keep on tapping F8 key. Select SAFE MODE then press enter. Once you are inside windows safe mode, click start menu then click all programs. Click accessories then click sytem tools. Click system restore then select a date where you remember your computer is working fine. Hope this helps.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

It sounds like your install has become corrupted if safe mode and last known good do not work.

You may need to restore the netbook to factory settings, doing this will wipe off any data you have saved on the netbook.

Install the battery and connect the AC adapter to your Acer Aspire One.

Turn the system on by pressing the "Power" button.

Press and hold the "Alt" key immediately after pressing the "Power" button and tap the "F10" button.

Continue holding the "Alt" button and tapping the "F10" button until a screen saying "Acer eRecovery" appears.

You will see three options:
Restore system to factory default
Restore system from CD/DVD (grayed out if an optical drive is not connected

Click on "Restore system to factory default." A notice will appear informing you that all data on the "C:" drive will be overwritten and reminding you to plug in the AC cord.

Click "OK" to begin the recovery. A message will appear stating once again that all data on your hard drive will be overwritten.

Click "OK" to acknowledge the message. The screen will show you a progress bar as the recovery progresses. Wait until the recovery is complete. The time will vary depending upon the individual netbook. A message will appear when the recovery is finished

Click "OK" to restart the computer. The netbook will reboot. Windows will load, asking you to wait. A "Welcome to Microsoft Windows" screen will eventually appear with background music playing. It is time to help Windows set up your computer.

Click "Next" to continue. You will be asked to input your system settings. Enter your region, language, and keyboard type, then click "Next." The next window is for your time zone.

Select your time zone and, if desired, place a check in the box beside "Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings time," then click "Next." The EULA (End User License Agreement) will appear next.

Click "Yes, I accept" on both places to accept all points of the EULA, then click "Next."

Place a dot in the radio button beside "Help protect my PC by turning on Automatic Updates now" and click "Next."

Click "Skip" to avoid setting up network information at this time.

Click "Skip" to avoid setting up an Internet connection at this time.

Click "No, not at this time" to avoid registering with Microsoft at this point, then click "Next".

Click "Skip" to avoid inputting registration information now.

Put your name and the names of others who will use the computer here, one per line. Click "Next." Microsoft will thank you for setting up your computer. Click "Finish" to begin using your newly restored computer.

Select safe mode !

If it finishes booting into safe mode then you can try another re-start.

If on the other hand it does not work after being in safe mode the issue may lie in some software you have recently installed or new hardware.

in either case remove that hardware or software (in safe mode) and try again.
If it still insists on re-booting when you select normal then I would begin looking at possible mal-ware, spy-ware or virus issues.

Should you get a specific error message then that may also be useful in troubleshooting issues.

Windows XP fails to load and Computer will not start up.

Boot from startup floppy disks or CD-ROM, choose repair option during setup, and run Recovery Console. When you are logged on, you can run FIXMBR command to fix master boot record. This should solve your problem.
