Actually its asking for a administrator password..
If you have already set a administrator password punch in that...
If you dont have any password set just push Enter.
You must be able to get into the safe mode...............

Forgetting your User password is both annoying and easily fixable.
Turn laptop on and repeatedly hit F8 till a black screen with white writing appears with multiple options for you to select.
Highlight "Safe mode with command prompt" after a few minutes another screen will appear with the following.

C:/ Yourcomputersname/Your user name>
type "net user" press enter
type "net user Your user account name * "
(( Your User Name should appear under neath the "net user" command.
Type "net user Your user name *
It will ask you to enter a password, enter any password you like. Note the cursor will not move to show it recognised a key press this is for security purposes so please dont make a mistake.
It will ask you to re enter the same password
Re enter password then press enter
COMMAND COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY should appear.

Reboot laptop and sign in with original User Name and new password you typed in above.

Message on laptop says to enter password. the computer was bought at thrift store. was told it needs to be configured. i want to make it wireless broadband


Hi judywash...


1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop starts.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

I dont know my password


If your using windows xp, reboot the computer and press f8 as it boots, enter safe mode, select run from the start menu and type in "control userpasswords2". From there you can change the password. If you are using windows 7 or vista, enter safe mode with f8 after turning the computer on, open the command prompt (cmd/cmd.exe) and type in "control userpasswords2".
