Hi Paula ,do onething try to connect the hard disk with other cable which may be used by cd/dvd rom..Now when connected start your computer and go into bios ,i hope you know how to enter into bio.now there check whether your hard disk is detected or not...

It might also be possible that the current hard disk is set to be Master.if so make it cable select through jumper setting..best would be to use the second cable to attach your hard drive.Now if you get both the hard disk shown by your bios.start the computer os and back up the data...

let me know if it works ......

Best of Luck.

How to reset admin password


Reset Windows 7 admin password is not hard in fact, as long as you follow these methods to do.

Method 1: To Reset Admin Password with Administrator Account
On Win 7 logon screen, click user and "Switch user" to choose another administrator to sign into. Turn to Control Panel and navigate to User menu. Choose the account you want to reset its password, and remove its password. And then set a new password for it.

Method 2: Reset Admin Password with Password Reset Disk
You have two ways to get password reset disk. One is create it when you still have the administrator password. The other is to create it with third-party software, such as Windows 7 password genius.

Similarly, on Win 7 logon screen, after type wrong password, click link "Reset Password" to go on. Or insert password reset disk into Windows 7 computer and boot it from disk. Windows 7 Password Genius runs, at the same time, all accounts and password list for you. Choose the administrator account, and click "Reset Password" to finish Windows 7 admin password reset.

I need to get a password so that others will not be able to use it


Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below. To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your internet browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID.

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

I forgot my adminastor password


Elevate a secondary account outside of the admin account to admin status, then login as it and change your admin password. If you don't have a secondary user account, you can create one (and elevate it to admin status) by running the following from the command line:

net user "useraccount" "password" /add
net localgroup administrators "your pc's name"\"useraccount" /add

Of course, remove the quotations and insert the user account name, your pc's name, and the password where those words show up. That should allow you to get into Windows with admin privelages and change the administrator password. I do it through the "manage" function by right clicking on My Computer. Then go to Local Users and Groups, fo to the users folder, right click on your administrator account and hit "Set password". Hope this helps!

FORGOT THE PASSWORD


ctrl+alt+del, a login screen will appear. Then type in the user field "Administrator", and if you did not create a super admin password /if you created a super admin password write that in/ then push enter. From here you can change the password for the admins or non admins.

If you gave the bad pass /which cannot be used because of the odd character/ to the super admin then you need to reinstall since you can not get in.
