Gateway laptop.,. can u please explain?

Thank you for your help!! What would i have to do though when i go to safe mode? If i only the owner as the only user.. For instance, i turn my computer and when it loads all you see is the owner user!! Does that matter, if i do not have like the guess user or the administrator or any other user of that sort when my computer starts. I would really appreciate it so much if you would go step by step to go to safe mode and go to administrator?

Ok nobody has details explaining how to login as an administrator...I have a gateway mini pc laptop and i cant log onto the password that i set...please help!!!


Hey, Try rebooting in safe mode as administrator(hold down F8).
Else put a second disk in another PC and run some password reset utility likeWindows Password Recovery Basic. http://www.windowspasswordrecovery.net/

If not, you need to reinstall the PC laptop.

Hope that helps.

Please explain safe mode to me.


Safe mode is a mode in which Windows can be run without using drivers, or other startup items. It is designed as a diagnostic tool to help restore windows problems. In certain situations, such as a registry problem, Windows may fail to start in normal mode, but will allow you to run windows in safe mode. Safe mode can be accessed by pressing F8 during startup.

I hope this heps.

Hi

Thank you for your query

What you are explaining is a classic windows loop

Unfortunatley the only way around it is to reformat the PC

Please do the following

1) Simply put your recovery CD provided with your laptop into your DVD/CD rom drive and then allow the laptop to restart

Then simply follow the instructions on screen

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

My acer laptop travelmate 2400, stops at the acer dispaly screen?


When asking questions, please let us know what operating system you have, that goes a long way into us helping out....thanks you. You can try to boot into safe mode first, just to see if the laptop will boot into windows period. When the acer screen first appears, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see a multiboot minu appear, if you di, that is a good first start...now scroll to the "Safe Boot with Networking" and select it. If the laptop boots into safe mode, I suspect something must have been downloaded like a windows update that may not have installed correctly and corrupted the Startup. If you booted into safe mode, send me a message and I'll explain how to restore the system back before you had the problems. If it doesn't boot into safe mode I might be able to help with that too, but I need to know the operating system.

Gateway Notebook NT3707- forgotten password operated by Windows Vista


the is only one solution, you have to have a program that will unlock the computer, I use a probuct here in my shop called Spotmau, that unlocks passwords, there is another method u might try first before you take it to a shop to unlock it, in the password dialog box type in the top admin, and in the password line type owner, that is the way gateway set their systems up to unlock the passwords when forgotten.

any further assistance you can send me a personal message and i will respond as soon as I get, I'll be glad to help in anyway I can.
