Hi,

The best way of doing this is to format your hard disk and doing a clean install of your operating system.
By doing this your cmputer would be as good as new.

Replaced egr valve still coding


most times you just replace the egr valve, if you have done that and have reset the code and it still comes on, replace the hoses or the sensor. Simply replaceing the egr valve does not automaticly reset the code.

  8. Remove and then label the password reset disk. Store the disk in a safe place.

How to log on to the computer by using a password reset disk

  1. On the Windows XP logon screen, click the user name that you want to use. The Type your password box appears. Press ENTER or click the right-arrow button. You receive the following error message: Did you forget your password?
    You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.
    Or you can use your password reset disk.

    Please type your password again.
    Be sure to use the correct uppercase and lowercase letters.
  2. Click use your password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard starts. The Password Reset Wizard permits you to create a new password for your user account.

  8. Click Next, and then click Finish. The Password Reset Wizard quits, and you return to the Windows XP logon screen.

    Note The password reset disk is automatically updated with the new password information. You do not have to create a new password reset disk.
  9. Type your new password in the Type your password box, and then click the right-arrow button to log on to the computer.
Troubleshooting
  • The password reset disk cannot be used to reset the password on another computer.

    The password reset disk that you create can only be used with the computer it was created on. For example, if you have two Windows XP-based computers that have the same user names and passwords, a password reset disk that you create on the first computer cannot be used to reset the password on the second computer.
  • The password reset disk contains sensitive information.

    Other users may be able to use the password reset disk to gain access to your computer. For this reason, store this disk in a safe and secure location.

How to log on to Windows XP if you forget your password or if your password...


Introduction:
If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you
must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This
article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password
so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work
if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer,
or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to
your account.
If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator,
unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other
programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the
computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone
could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to
private information.
This article is intended for a beginning to intermediate computer user.
You may find it easier to follow the steps if you print this article first.
More Information:
Reset forgotten or expired password
If you forget your password or if your password expires, there are two
methods that you can use to log on to create a new password. One
method is to use a password reset disk, if you have created one. By
using the password reset disk, you can recover your user account and
your personalized computer settings. Another method is to log on using
the administrator account to delete the forgotten password and then to
create a new password.
If you have a password reset disk, go to method 1. If you do not have
a reset disk, go to method 2. The instructions guide you through each
step and help you verify that the problem is resolved.

I am replacing my car computer I like to know how to reset the new computer


Before you start, make sure your negative battery cable is disconnected. Once the new computer is installed, reconnect the battery cable. Since the "new" computer isn't connected to a power source, everything in its memory should already be reset, and it will be ready to go.

Engine computer replaced.


By reset do you mean program? If so, you'd have to bring your vehicle to the dealer and have them "reflash" the computer. If that's not what you mean, please elaborate.

Codes need to be reset in my cars computer?


if you had it replaced it should have already been set however you can reset your cars computer by taking the positive battery cable off the battery and waiting 2-3 min and then touching the positive cable from the car to the negative cable which is still attached to the neg post on the battery for about 5 sec and the hooking it back up. that will reset the computer which would configure any new sensors. when the computer reads a bad code it bypasses that sensor so your car will run. it wont run to the best of its ability though - that's why you didn't pass an inspection. when you replaced the sensor the computer didn't notice because it already stopped reading that sensor when it went bad and doesnt know about the new one. when you reset the computer as i told you then it will read the new sensor and work properly.
