Is this computer a member of a domain or just local?
If a domain member, contact your administrator to reset the password for you.

If local (or in a workgroup)
Log in as a local administrator, then you may be able to reset your password.

When logging in, type, Administrator as the user name and type in your password (if you remember). Try password as blank first if you haven't set a password. Default password is usually 12345

Once logged in:

Click Start, right-click My Computer, select Manage.
Under Computer Management --> Expand System Tools --> Local Users and Groups, the select Users folder.

Locate your user name on the right pane, right-click on your username, then select Set Password. Change your password.

Pls let me know if this solution worked for you.

Unlock the main password to my computer


As soon as you turn it on? That sounds like either a Bios Password or a Hard Drive Password? So, are you the original owner of this laptop or is it Sizzling Hot (stolen)?? How can you be smart enough to set a Bios or Hard Drive password, then forget it?

My acer laptop screen turns white while working


Try reinstall the video drivers as it looks like an issue with the video adpater. To do so:

Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> install Application & Drivers> Select the appropriate Video driver (Intel, NTI etc as per your computer spec) and install it. Restart the computer and check, the issue should be resolved. If not, then I am sorry I bet the computer needs repair.

My laptop isnt working.as soon as u turn it on a black screen comes up and the message display says PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM!! how can i fix it


It goes to a network boot rather than booting straight to the HDD. restart your computer and press f2 immediatley. you are now on the BIOS page. check if your hard drive is detected and if not call Lenovo to have it replaced/repaired. if it is detected, after the PXE error, your computer should boot up just fine.

I bought a used Compaq Presario 18XL580 Laptop. When I opened it the person left their password on the power screen. I cannot get into the laptop, how can I reset that password? Thanks!


If its a laptop you cant just remove the cmos battery regardless of what anyone tells you. 

If it is a soon as you press the power button password your SOL

if it gives you the option to boot from a cdrom drive you can get a copy of ubcd 4.11 or other and use the bios reset under misc tools to remove it or kill cmos any of those will usually work

now if its a windows password your best bet is to load in a linux enviorment off a cd like ubuntu and go to synaptic package manager and install chntpwd then look up a guide on another computer to remove the windows password.

My laptop does not open windos xp


The password issue will require you to contact Dell Technical Support for a Master Password (this will require you to prove that you are an authorized user). 800-624-9896

The error message will require a reinstallation of Windows and may be an indication of a failing hard drive.

My laptop when it comes on


This is a BIOS or hard drive password, you need to enter the BIOS setup screen by pressing DEL, F1, F2, or a combination of keys. Within the BIOS setup you can disable the password save and exit.

System won't log on


try safe mode. If it works, use system restore to go back to a previous working configuration. If safe mode does not work, try the last known-good configuration. Restart the computer, then as soon as the Dell logo shows up on the screen, press the F8 key repeatedly until you enter the Advanced Options Menu. Use the arrow keys to select Last Known-Good Configuration, then press Enter.

My laptop does not recognize my password. It has not been turned on in a couple of weeks and no one has used it.


hi snooker
make sure you type the password in the letter case it was originally typed ie lower case (without caps lock) or upper case (with caps lock)

worth a try

Locked out from pc? forgot password? how to change password?


If you are using Windows XP Professional there is an Admin Account Hidden. Thats if it isnt the current one.
Start your computer and repeatedly hit F8 for boot changes, start in "Safemode" or "Directory Services and Repairs"
If the Welcome screen shows Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del twice to get classic logon screen then Type Admin and if there is a Password enter it.

If you do log in, you should have the ability to change the account Password or create new one.

If you are Using XP Home Edition then theres not much luck unless you can think of the PW.
Your Best bet is to Backup and Reinstall Operating System
