Assuming you mean a password so only you can access your account..

go to the start menu
click your picture at the top of the menu/select settings, control panel, user accounts then click on your picture there
select change my password

that should do it. thats what you do on most pcs or laptops...

I have a Lenovo A3 series all in one desktop computer and it is not recognizing my password and I am locked out. I put myself on as administrator and the computer was turned off before I backed up the...



first make sure the caps lock if off/on whatever applies the password when you typed it in

Remove a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings

as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

hope this helps

drain the power of BiOS,from the back up battery inside your LAPTOP!
By disconnecting the battery(inside) and wait for a couple of minutes, BiOS will erase the PASSWORD!

Unable to login to laptop due to forgotten login password


First thing you can try is:

1: When booting up the laptop Press F8 until you see a screen show that has an option to boot in "Safe Mode"
2: Once it has finished booting up you can Select Administrator and hopefully there is no password set.
3: If there is no password set then login as Administrator and goto "Control Panel", Select User Accounts and change your daughter's password to something she wont forget ;p

if that fails then you can try this

Offers a program that resets your passwords.

Hope this helped.
