In the process of changing the password so that I can give my sister this "antique", I have some how eliminated it and cannot gain access to my A55-S106. Just a black screen, with "Password", in the upper left-hand corner. Any ideas?

Sounds like you have reset the BIOS password. As a rule, you are had. Those passwords are to prevent someone from using the computer if it is stolen. You can try my tips and see if one will work for you but don't get your hopes up.

How can I set a new password


You aren't being specific, but I'll give you a general answer. There are two passwords to be considered with a router. The first is the administrator password. This is the password you need to know to gain access to the configuration menus of the router. If you need to change this and don't know the current password, your only option is to reset the router (usually via a recessed button on the rear) and go through the entire setup process again, entering a new password that you can remember. If you know the admin password and want to change it, there is an option to do so on one of the menu screens. The second password is the WIFI password. It is located in the wireless settings area of the router menu. Hope this helps.

How can i gain access to a microsoft or gmail account without resetting passwords


Only one person is supposed to know your password. When logging in, on that page is a button, forgot password or something like that. Press the button and you will get an email, on the address you gave the site while setting up your account. Follow the instructions in the mail and everything will be ok in just a few minutes.
If you can access your account, goto settings and there change password. Be aware they again ask you current password before you can give in any changes.
If someone hacked your account and did change the settings, you don't get an e-mail, you won't be able to claim the account. You have to setup a new account.

We answer questions, we don't host mail servers. we don't reset passwords.

L want open my email and lost my password


It's part of human nature to forget. Luckily, online there are ways to retrieve a password if it is forgotten. Yahoo! Messenger is one of the many instant messaging programs available, and it provides an in-depth and secure process to retrieve a forgotten password. After answering questions that only you should know, you will be able to give your account a new password.
1.Click "Forgot Password" under the password box on Yahoo! Messenger. This will open your web browser to a Yahoo! support page to start with the password resetting process.
2.Select "I forgot my password" and click "Next."
3.Enter your Yahoo! ID. You can enter your full Yahoo! email or just the first half of it (without the "@yahoo.com").
4.Enter the CAPTCHA code underneath and click "Next." CAPTCHA codes keep your account safe from computer bots trying to gain access to your information. If you cannot see the code, you can click "Need audio assistance" to listen to the code or click "Can't read this code" for a different randomly generated code.
5.Select the option to reset the password. Choose the email address you provided as your alternate address to have the reset password emailed to you or click "I can't access any of the above" to get it through the web browser. Click "Next" when done.
6.Answer the security questions you chose if you selected "I can't access any of the above." Click "Next" after each one. If you chose to receive the password by mail, open your email and select "Reset My Password."
7.Enter your new password in the boxes that appear and click "Next." You will then be brought to a web page where you can change your password retrieval options, but your password has already successfully been changed. This page is optional.

Forget password


To change password of an user account, we need to go to User Accounts panel in Control Panel, choose the user account, click on 'Change my password' link, type current password once and new password twice. Too lengthy a process isn't it? Here is handy tip to change Win XP passwords in DOS mode and believe me, it takes less than 5 seconds!! Let me share the hack with you all!

  4. You will get a prompt like .. Type a password for the user:
  5. Type the desired password and press Enter key. Also note that you wont see *****s as you type but don't worry.
  6. You will again get a prompt like .. Retype the password to confirm:
  7. Retype the password and press Enter key. Here too you wont see *****s as you type but don't worry.
Thats it!!! Oh no .. wait .. Did it cost you more than 5 secs? OK Try this ..


Another Solution

Computer passwords are like locks on doors - they keep honest people honest. If someone wishes to gain access to your laptop or computer, a simple login password will not stop them. Most computer users do not realize how simple it is to access the login password for a computer, and end up leaving vulnerable data on their computer, unencrypted and easy to access.
Are you curious how easy it is for someone to gain access to your computer? If so, read on to see the technique one might use to figure out your computer password.
Windows
Windows is still the most popular operating system, and the method used to discover the login password is the easiest. The program used is called Ophcrack, and it is free. Ophcrack is based on Slackware, and uses rainbow tables to solve passwords up to 14 characters in length. The time required to solve a password? Generally 10 seconds. The expertise needed? None.
3237188885_1527db4c72_m.jpgSimply download the Ophcrack ISO and burn it to a CD (or load it onto a USB drive via UNetbootin). Insert the CD into a machine you would like to gain access to, then press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down. Turn the computer back on and enter BIOS at startup. Change the boot sequence to CD before HDD, then save and exit.
The computer will restart and Ophcrack will be loaded. Sit back and watch as it does all the work for your. Write down the password it gives you, remove the disc, restart the computer, and log in as if it were you own machine.
Mac
The second most popular operating system, OS X is no safer when it comes to password cracking then Windows.
The easiest method would be to use Ophcrack on this, also, as it works with Mac and Linux in addition to Windows. However, there are other methods that can be used, as demonstrated below.
If the Mac runs OS X 10.4, then you only need the installation CD. Insert it into the computer, reboot. When it starts up, select UTILITIES > RESET PASSWORD. Choose a new password and then use that to log in.
If the Mac runs OS X 10.5, restart the computer and press COMMAND + S. When at the prompt, type:
fsck -fy
mount -uw /
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist
dscl . -passwd /Users/UserName newpassword
That's it. Now that the password is reset, you can login.
Linux
Finally, there is Linux, an operating system quickly gaining popularity in mainstream, but not so common you're likely to come across it. Though Mac and Linux are both based on Unix, it is easier to change the password in Linux than it is OS X.
To change the password, turn on the computer and press the ESC key when GRUB appears. Scroll down and highlight 'Recovery Mode' and press the 'B' key; this will cause you to enter 'Single User Mode'.
You're now at the prompt, and logged in as 'root' by default. Type 'passwd' and then choose a new password. This will change the root password to whatever you enter. If you're interested in only gaining access to a single account on the system, however, then type 'passwd username' replacing 'username' with the login name for the account you would like to alter the password for.
Conclusion
There you have it - that is how simple it is for someone to hack your password. It requires no technical skills, no laborious tasks, only simple words or programs. The moral of the story? Encrypt your data to keep it safe. Don't use only a password, but actually encryption, such as Blowfish or AES-128. There are a number of programs that can do this - TrueCrypt for Windows, or the native encryption found on Ubuntu, creating a disk image in Mac, etc.

The first thing to do is change the password for your sister's account so it cannot be accessed. You should be able to do this by going to the website hosting your sister's e-mail and log into her account there. Then change the password ASAP.
