Well to change the picture you need to be logged in as administrator. if you are logged in as local user then you do not have the sufficient privilage to make those changes. you might want to contact the retail shop and ask for admin password. as far as the sound is concerned it would help if you mentioned an example. some programs use thier own drivers wich are not compatable with windows 7. if it is video it is a codec problem. you need to download the codec. some software that was written for directx 9 ( the xp version) have problems using direct x 10 wich is what windows 7 uses. you can right click the exe file for the program and try using the compatability tab and change it to xp and see if that helps.

Enable / Disable the Local (Hidden) Administrator Account in Windows 7


Ways to Enable / Disable the Built-In Windows 7 Admin Account Many people familiar with prior versions of Windows are curious what happened to the Local Administrator account that was always created by default. Does this account still exist, and how can you access it?<br /> Recently I ran into an awkward situation where after disjoining a Windows 7 client machine from the domain, I was unable to log in to the computer. This was not because I had forgotten the local administrator password, but because the local administrator account was disabled (which is the default behavior in Windows 7). Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator's account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password. After doing some research, I found the following procedure that worked really well.<br /> <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/enable-disable-local-administrator-account-win7.htm">Enable Built-in Administrator Account</a><br /> Basically there are 4 ways in order to activate the account:<br /> A) Command Prompt To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Command Prompt please follow these steps:<br /> 1. First you'll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing "Run as administrator" (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)<br /> <img src="run-command-prompt-as-administrator.jpg" /> 2. After that you only need to enter the simple command below to activate it.<br /> <b><i>net user administrator /active:yes</i></b><br /> <img src="enable-hidden-administrator-account.png" /> 3. You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you'll now see the Administrator account as a choice.<br /> <img src="built-in-windows-7-administrator-account.png" /> You'll note that there's no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.<br /> B) Local Security Policy Another way of activating the administrator account in Windows 7 is via Local Security Policy.<br /> 1. Type secpol.msc in the search bar and hit enter.<br /> <img src="secpol.png" /> 2. After the Local Security Policy pops up, navigate to Local Policies-&gt; Security Options where you can see an entry that reads Accounts: Administrator account. Double click the entry to enable it.<br /> <img src="local-security-policy.png" /><br /> <img src="administrator-account-status.png" /> C) Using the Local Users and Groups Snap-in To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:<br /> 1. Open Local Users and Groups. You can do so by typing lusrmgr.msc in the Start search box or in the Run command and pressing ENTER. Or, you could open Computer Management by right-clicking Computer in the Start menu and selecting Manage.<br /> 2. Expand System Tools &gt; Local Users and Groups &gt; Users.<br /> 3. Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password".<br /> 4. In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".<br /> 5. In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".<br /> 6. Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".<br /> 7. Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.<br /> Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.<br /> D) During the Installation Process There is a 3rd method which advanced users can use. This method can be used during the installation process itself.<br /> 1. During the installation, after being prompted to configure the new user account, you will be able to set the new account's password.<br /> 2. At that phase, press SHIFT and F10 keys together. A Command Prompt window will appear.<br /> 3. In the Command Prompt window, type:<br /> <b><i>net user</i></b><br /> Note how the Administrator account is there, yet the new user account has not been yet created.<br /> 4. To set the Administrator's account password:<br /> <b><i>net user *</i></b><br /> 5. Then enter the required password and confirm it.<br /> 6. To enable the Administrator's accoun:<br /> <b><i>net user administrator /active:yes</i></b><br /> 7. Close the Command Prompt window and continue with the installation process.<br /> If you log off you will now see the Administrator's account as a valid logon option.<br /> Disable Built-in Administrator Account Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:<br /> <b><i>net user administrator /active:no</i></b><br /> <img src="disable-local-admin-account.png" /> The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn't show up on the login screen anymore.<br /> <a href="http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/downloads/Windows_Password_Recovery_Tool_Trial.exe">Hack into Windows 7 Administrator Account </a> [Free Trial] Article source: http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/enable-disable-local-administrator-account-win7.htm<br />

Forgot password


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:

- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use third party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your login password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html

Help ive forgotten the administrator password on my lenovo g550


You CAN enter your Lenovo computer by clearing the current administrator password.

Windows Login Password Recovery is the tool that you need in your case. The password recovery tool is designed to reset Windows login password once you accidentally forgot it or have no access to your system including Windows 7, Vista, XP etc. By burning a bootable CD, you can enter almost any computer with Windows administrator login password protected within a few seconds. Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy, I am sure you can handle it!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.
Step 2: Prepare a blank CD/USB and run the software and use it to burn the ISO file to it.
Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive. Note: start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password.

Enabling Administrator Account in Windows 7


In Windows 7, like Windows Vista, when you install the operating system, you are asked to enter a user name which will be the primary local user that will use this system.
Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator's account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password


The new user which is created during the installation is configured to be a member of the built-in Administrators group, and in fact, can be used for any management task. That use is in fact equivalent by all means with the original built-in Administrator account.
However, there may be situations where one would like to use the built-in Administrator account instead of that "new" user. One of these might be when you're building a system for cloning purposes, and would like all cloned machines to be able to use the built-in Administrator's account.
Note that since that account does NOT have a password, enabling it without properly setting a password for that account will open a serious security opening on your system!

To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:
Open Local Users and Groups. You can do so by typing lusrmgr.msc in the Start search box or in the Run command and pressing ENTER. Or, you could open Computer Management by right-clicking Computer in the Start menu and selecting Manage.

Expand System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users.
Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password

In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".

In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".

Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".

Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.


Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.
