How to Reset Windows Password with Default Admin Password?


The Windows operating system allows you to assign a password to each user account. This provides privacy to different users on one computer. Each user is allowed to set up his own environment and settings to maintain personal files. The difficultly comes when a computer is not functioning correctly and needs to be put into safe mode, but a password is not available. Creating a disc on Windows permits you to <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/6-windows-password-recovery-solutions.html">reset Windows password</a>, get access to your locked computer and replace the forgotten or lost password. <br /> Let us discuss the method of <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/windows-password-recovery-tool.html">Windows password recovery</a>, if you have access to any of the account with administrator rights or you have not assigned a password to the account with username administrator. Administrator is the default account created in the Windows when it is installed. This has a blank password by default.<br /> start your system to reset the Windows login password. If classic login dialog box appears, write the user with administrator privilege if you know any of them, type its password and press enter to login. Otherwise, type administrator in place for the username and press Enter. If you are successful to login, open the Start menu and click Control Panel to open it. Open the user account and change the password of the desired account. Restart you system to login your account with the changed password. <br /> If your logon screen is Windows XP style, administrator user will not be shown on the logon screen. You have to boot in Safe Mode. Restart your system and press F8 key to display the boot options. Choose the Safe Mode option and press enter to boot. Windows skips loading many drivers. Administrator account is shown in the logon screen. Click it to login. After the Windows desktop is shown, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. Change the password of your account.<br /> Well, still can not successfully solve your Windows password recovery trouble? You'd better take use of a third party software.

I lost my skype password


You can still reset it. Open the Skype, enter your username, click "Forgot you password?", (you can do even if you don't enter the username, but it's better since you'll be taken to your personal page, check the url, you'll be be able to see your username).

another windows will open up on the Browser, there, you'll see box "Enter your email address", type in your email address and click "submit"



nonontech_302.jpg



You'll receive a temporary password (or password reset link) on your email (sample email shown below). Use the code to login and change the password after you are logged in. Note: to change the password, you'll need the temporary password, so don't delete the email, better note it down and change it once you are logged in.

Toshiba satellite laptop lockout


is it a windows password or poweron password? you must be wondering what are they?
windows password is when you have to enter the password to get into windows and before that you get to see the windows loading screen.
poweron password is hard to crack, it will ask a password on a black screen saying Enter a Password, and the background will be completely black in color.
if its a windows password, press the "Alt+Ctrl+Del" twice, you'll get a screen which will ask you a username and password. in the username and password type in, "Administrator" and password will be blank. hit enter. if it works, then for the rest of the steps, mail me at L2support.hp@gmail.com

How do i unlock my computer if i forgot my username and password


As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:
1st Method:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2th Method:
Windows password reset software:
for example:Windows Password Reset. It is easy and convenient to use.
