What operating system are you using? If Windows XP, try booting into Safe Mode (Press the F8 key before Windows starts). You may be able to use the Administrator account. Sometimes the Admin account does not have a password associated with it. Once you get in, you can use the User Accounts Control Panel to change the password on your account (this all assumes that you are using a local profile and not a server profile). Give that a try and let me know if you have success.

I lock my computer a for got the pass code.


Hello,

If You are using a windows XP, the solution is for You to turn on the laptop allow it booth, once it gets to the log in page, press the ctrl+alt+delete button, then a page will come up, You will have the page where You will have to enter the user name and the password, just type Administrator in the user name and leave the password blank and press enter or log in, it will log in for You, there You can access the user profile and change the password through the control panel.

If You are using the windows vista, then when You get to the log in page, then You press the control+alt+delete button, then You select start new task, then the computer will log in with a neutral profile, after it has one that, then You can go to the control panel and change the password for the user profile You used to lock the password.

Hope this helped.

Lap top is locked I cant do any word documents or edit my docements I never locked my computer


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight.

I have a hp computer that we recently moved from one room to another..and now..i can not log into it.."it" keeps asking me for original password and there is no way i can locate it..i tried calling hp...


Try to log in using the account name administrator and no password.
If you cannot change the account name press CTRL+ ALT+DELETE two times then type administrator for the user name. Do not type a password in the password box just click OK and hope that who set up the computer did not select a password. If this works proceed to the next paragraph, if it did not restart your computer pressing the F8 key during the boot screen until you can select the safe mode.
When you get into windows select start then run. Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK. Select your user name which you forgot the password and select Reset Password. Type in a new password and select OK. You now have a new password for that account.

Users accounts lockout how do i unlock accounts


Hello,
If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Also there is another way you can solve this issue.
- Go to start and run type in CMD
-Black screen would pop up and do this
net user user name *
(user name means whatever ur username is that appears on your login screen)
after this the computer will ask u to type a password so just type any password. Better to type a really short one becasue when you type the password on this screen you won't see the cursor moving or your password being typed in.
Press Enter after typing the password.
It will ask you to retype the password. Again the password would be visible when you type.
Press Enter and it will tell you command completed successfully. If it does not work then retype the commands again carefully. Just make sure u type a short password, probably a one letter password and u wont have any issues.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

its a bit long process(WINDOWS XP)
wot you have to do is turn off the computer completely
after you power it back on start hitting F8 KEY
You will get system advanced boot meny
using up or down arrow key highlight safe mode and press enter
it will ask your operating system just press enter again
it will load some files and then you will get user name options
other than your name there would be an administrator
choose administrator
don't put in any password if it asks
just hit enter
if u are able to log on as an administrator you can go to user accounts option in control panel and cad do anything
