First METHOD:-

FOR windows XP *******************
follow the few following steps if you are using windows xp.

  1. On log on screen press alt+ctrl+del.
  2. log on view change to old version. then fill it as follow
    user: administrator
    password: *leave it blank*
    press enter.
if it works then follow the third step else skip this method and try out second method.
  1. continue..
    right click on my computer ' select manage.
  2. computer manage window will open.
    on left side.. expand the 'local users and groups'
    then > select users.
  3. on right side list of user name will appear..
    right click on the user of which you want to reset the password.
  4. select set password.
    one new window will pop up. select proceed.
  5. Now type your new password and same password on confirm password.
    then click ok.
You have successfully change your password.

Second METHOD:-

Another way is to format your system. you should format hard disk using bootable OS.


this method is easy but risky method. Before if you have open your cpu case then its not a big deal for you. Don't worry the thing you have to do is just plug-out and plug-in the battery. it will reset your BIOS password.

Hope it works.. ALL THE BEST..

The easiest way is to log on at another account (with administrator rights) and change the password at your own account. In case this is not possible, you can use a tool for resetting the user password. One tool for this purpose can be located here. Since your laptop has no cd/dvd rom you can use either an external one to boot from (using the cd you created at the previous step) or use this portable tool in order to extract the iso file and create a bootable USB stick (read the readme file at the iso file for details). There is also another one solution using a windows xp setup cd but it's more risky, so I suggest you to try with the steps I told you before.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

I can't log in my Facebook account

Point your web browser at Welcome to Facebook Log In Sign Up or Learn More

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the down-pointing triangle in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

If you're getting an error message, what does it say?

Forgot password to log onto computer, how do I get pass that or reset to another password. Or remove password altogether?

Depends what password it is. Is this to log into BIOS? Or log into a system account on an operating system? And if it is the latter, what operating system version do you have?
