I set a password to my laptop and I can't remember what it is, how can I get to use my laptop again??


@pinkruthpink

The quickiest way to reset your password is to run System Recovery (aside paying someone from a local computer store and use a software to reset it). Gateway laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you can restore the computer to factory default without using a restore discs. (please note that this will erase everything). The hotkey for the recovery is the ALT+F10 key. After you press the power button, you need to hold ALT key and then simultaneously press the F10 key.. Once the recovery menu has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings.


Good luck

you should restore the laptop 2-3 days back when password was not set ..

restart the laptop and keep tapping f11 key until Recovery Manager window appears .

select Advance boot option .

select System Restore (not system recovery)

select show more restore point date

select any restore point date, when password was not set (u will not lose personal data)

I am not tech smart. I originally set up my facebook account with one email address and longer remember password. also changed email address. now have new computer and want new email address on present...


The only way you can retrieve this facebook is to either log into or remember which email you have set it up with then go through password recovery right from the login page. They have several recovery options...

If you dont remember the password from the email account they also have a password recovery procedure you can go through...

Heres facebooks...

https://www.facebook.com/recover.php

From here you actually have several options, if you have a phone number registered to your account or with your account you may have the password or a unlock key text to your device

Sony vaio mod PCG370 need bios password clrd


WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. Be sure to set a password that will be easy for you to remember, because by setting a BIOS password you are limiting access to the computer only to users who know that password. If the BIOS password is ever forgotten you will not be able to access the computer and it may be necessary to perform a system recovery in order to regain access. This is from their support site.

If you have recovery CD do a recovery if not purchase one. Do a complete restore and recovery often times you can pull the back off where the CMOS battery is located and pull the battery out for about 25 seconds and it may reset it to default for you to access your Windows Operating System again.

There is also software that you can download that will clear the BIOS as well. On laptops, the password is usually stored in an eeprom on the motherboard, you need an eeprom programmer (electronic device) to retrieve it. Also a great resource for free password removal for laptops is Click Here I hope that this assisted you in your issue with BIOS password access. This is why unless you are really needing to block the BIOS I never set passwords period I also recommend people do not set a password there really is no reason to. Unless you know that someone is going to access this and change anything most folks do not even know how to get there. If you do need a password set make sure that you will remember it I think you have figured that out by now. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Can not remember window's password, also Admin has been disabled. How can I unlock it?


The Windows Login Password can be changed only if you have an access to Windows.

If you have another Admin User Account, you can try logging into other account to change the password.

If the computer is not booting to windows, then you can perform system recovery to restore the computer to factory settings.

The system recovery process will erase all the data in computer and restore the computer to factory settings.

You can restart the computer and press the F8/F10 key at start up to access the recovery partition. Once you access the recovery partition, you can perform c drive recovery in your computer to resolve this issue. Below is the link with the details to perform system recovery in your computer:

Cant remember recovery password for recovery of my acer aspire 3050


I don't think there is a recovery password..It may be the BIOS one ..and asks you that cause it needs to boot from the recovery partition ..try it ..If it is not working ..and you do not remember setting a password for it ..try on the support site ..maybe there is a factory one .....(also try the manual in this case it may be mentioned..)
If you know for sure you inserted a password for it ..and now you can not remember it ..im not sure you will be able to use it ..unless you find a way to eliminate it ..Or ..try to use a recovery disk from now on ..or a boot-able disk with the operation system and install it normally and not from the partition ..
If it is the same with the bios password ..I understood there are ways to remove it ..using either a password generator ..or a master one from the manufacturer support site ..or removing its battery ..(BIOS battery )
