Login my gmail account


I assume that you can still access your account with an old password that you need to change. If this is not the case then the procedure is different.
Login to your account and click on the "cogwheel" in the upper right of the gmail box and select settings. When this comes up there is a tab at the top labelled "Accounts & Imports", click on this and the first option is to change your password. Click on this and follow the instructions.
If you have not remembered your password to get in you should go to the sign in page and click on "Need help?" and follow the instructions through. To do this you need to have given Google an alternative email address or some other way of contact to recover your username and/or password when you set the account up.
Good luck

Change the Default Email on an iTunes Account
If you want to purchase and download items from the iTunes Store, iTunes requires that you create an account.
It uses the email given during registration as your default Apple ID for logging into iTunes services and for sending receipts for purchases.
If your primary email address changes, you can edit your account information to use a new default email address.

Launch iTunes, and then select "Sign In" from the "Store" toolbar menu.
Type your current account credentials and click "Sign In."
Select "View My Account" from the "Store" menu, type your account credentials again and then click "View Account."
Click the "Edit" button beside your Apple ID on the "Account Information" page.

Type the new email you want to use beside "Email," and then click "Done" to change the default email address associated with your iTunes account.

Once signed in, you can authorize the computer to play media purchased from the iTunes Store and set up other iTunes-exclusive features, including Home Sharing.

Click "Start" on your Windows PC's taskbar, then click "Programs," "Apple," and "iTunes" to run the program.
For Macintosh computers, open the Applications folder in "Finder" and double-click the "iTunes" icon.
Click the "iTunes Store" tab, then click the "Sign In" button on the right side of the program window.

Reset password on emachine 355


If you have forgotten your password if you have another user account with administrative privileges you can log into that account and change your original user accounts password from the User Accounts applet in Control Panel.


If you dont have another account like this set up or dont have the password to it you will need to log into the built-in Administrator account.

In XP Home boot the computer into Safe Mode.


Do this by repeatedly tapping the F8 key as the computer is starting up.

This will get you to the right menu


Navigate using your Up arrow key the mouse will not work here

Once in Safe Mode you will see the normally hidden Administrator account

The default password is a blank

In XP Pro you do not need to go into Safe Mode

At the Welcome Screen do Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to get the classic Windows logon box.

Type in "Administrator" and whatever password you assigned when you set up Windows.

If you reset the built-in Administrator accounts password in Home or have Pro and dont remember the password there are ways to change the password for that account to a blank


hope this helps

Locked password


Locked Password where? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows User Account (userid) Password? And which operating system?

If it's the Bios Password, then you will need to remove the CMOS Battery and let the computer sit for a couple of hours. Then put the battery back in and try rebooting. You'll have to go back into the BIOS or Setup to put the correct date and time in but the password should be gone from memory.

If it's the Hard Drive Password, you're kinda out of luck. Hard drives are locked 99% of the time when the computer is stolen. The original owner either locked it while he had possession of it or he could have locked it remotely when it was stolen to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The only way around it is to have the original put the password in, or Purchase a new hard drive to put in the computer, reload the operating system, reload the drivers and reload application programs.

If it's the Windows Password for User Account turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the Safe Mode option to boot the computer. When it comes to the login screen it will show you the Administrator account and the Account for which you forgot or don't know the password. Log into the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it). When windows desktop comes up click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When the User Accounts window opens up click on the User Account for which you forgot the password then select Remove Password. Reboot the machine

Purchased a used computer for a christmas present , it has a admin passord set. i need to remove it . my daughter cannot even set it up.


As you don't know the administrator password, actually it's a very hard nut to crack. You need a software to unblock this computer. Follow these following steps:
  1. Download Windows Password Recovery 6.0 from Password Recovery Official site
  2. Install this software.
  3. Unzip the Windows password unlocker and extract the.ISO image file.
  4. Burn the image file on a blank disk with the burner provided with Windows Password Recovery 6.03.
  5. Insert the newly created CD into the DVD-drive and re-boot the computer.
  6. After restarting the computer, a window will pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts); select the account name that you are trying to unblock.
  7. Just click the account name and the password will be removed.

Download Password Recovery 6.0

I hope, this will be helpful to you.

I just purchased a compaq notebook lap top i locked it and now dont know how to unlock it Help !!!!


Hi lenise,

Have you locked your laptop through the user account or from the BIOS password protection?

Which operating system is this? XP or Vista?

If its the user account, then is it the administrator?
If yes, then you can change the admin password with a security hole in XP ( Windows installation disk would be required).

Visit the following link on how to do it!

How do i log on to my admin,from my lap top when on holiday thankyou frank


If your computer's operating system has an administrator password that you did not set or do not remember, try the default password of 'admin', 'administrator', or leave the field blank. If none of these are correct, then your administrator password would need to be removed. Geeksquad has licensed tools to remove windows passwords, and can probably perform the password removal in under 2-3 minutes if there isn't a line for service when you bring it in. I would suggest that as it might be the easiest method to reclaim access to your administrator account.

Hope that helps.
