For password forgotten you need not reboot from factory. In fact, when we lost Windows password the best way is admin password or reset disk. If you have one of them you can try them at first. But when all you don't have I think the quickest and the best way will be reset software. For my experience, for reset software I prefer to Anmosoft Windows Password Reset, which can help reset, change or create a user password.

Forgotten or lost Password -> "Methods to get into your PC/Laptop"

Factory settings -> Means the settings set by the OEM vendors when your first receive your PC/Laptop. You cannot boot into the factory settings once you have configure your PC/Laptop to your personal settings, but you can boot to "Safe Mode" and use the "Administrators" account to reconfigure other Users settings. To get back to "Factory Settings" you can use the OEM "Recovery CD" or "Recovery function from your Hard drive" depending on the OEM Vendors specifications for your PC/Laptop.

**Take note, All your data will be lost when you reverting your PC/Laptop to factory settings!!!

Hope it helps.

I forgot my password to my dell latitude i need to restore it back to factory setttins i already have it took apart


Are you restoring back to Factory Setting simply because you forgot the password? Please tell me NO. If so, that is not what you want to do. Resetting to Factory Settings will cause you to lose all your documents, music, pictures & videos unless you have them backed up somewhere outside of the computer. If all you need is the password removed, try turning off your machine, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot. When the log in screen appears you will see the account for which you forgot the password and the Administrator account. Select the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it also). If you log in successfully with the Administrator account click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When you are in the User Accounts select the account for which you forgot the password, then select the option to Remove Password. Now reboot your machine.

Hi,

The default UID and Password is "Admin" and "Password". If that doesn't work you have to reset the router by pressing the "Reset" switch for 5 Sec. Then your default UID and PWD will be restored.

NOTE: IF YOU RESET YOUR ROUTER TO ITS FACTORY DEFAULT ALL SETTINGS, INCLUDE ANY ADSL SETTINGS, FIREWALL SETTINGS, PORT FORWARDING SETTINGS WILL BE ERASED.
IF YOU KNOW YOUR ADSL SETTINGS ie., USER ID AND PASSWORD, THEN PROCEED WITH THE STEPS MENTIONED ABOVE, ELSE CONTACT YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER FOR YOUR UID AND PWD.

Take Care.

Router locked. Cant remember the password.. User "root"


Hi,
The only solution for u to login in to the router is to reset the router.

1.If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.

2.To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.

3.Wait about 30 seconds to access the router.

4The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. When logging in, type in the default User Name “admin,” and the
default Password “admin” then click on the OK button to access the web-based manager.

Regards,
Ayyasam

Forgot Password


download spotmau from net(free version) unpack/unzip it .read the text instructions , create a bootdisk and install files to it...reboot with created bootdisk.within it program you can find passwords or remove all passwords.sugest remove all;then you can either leave password at start out or create one that can be remembered .The other other way involves a partial strip down of pc to remove rtc battery(remove,replace,restart)
though once you have spotmau theres many things you can do.an all in one recovery suite if you get the full version.
