My password not accepted by computer


To start with, try typing your password slowly by hitting keys gently (if you have not done this already) and, at the same time, see if all the characters that you type are reflected (usually as dots or asterisks) in the password box on your screen. If all your key-strokes get reflected in the box but still your password is not recognized, make sure that the functional keys like Num-Lock and Caps-Lock are On or Off only when necessary. Also, make sure that no keys on your keyboard have got stuck up or jammed accidentally. If everthing is fine but your password is still not recognized, you may need to try out password recovery/ reset options. To guide you on the same, we request you to share with us some more information on which account are you trying to log into.

If one or more of your key-strokes are not getting reflected correctly in the password box, one or more keys on your keyboard may be malfunctioning. To cross-check if this is the case, you can try typing your password in Notepad or Word document on your system and confirm if all the characters that you type are coming up on your screen correctly. If the password you are referring to is your Windows password, you may not be able to login to your system and thus, may not be able to access Notepad or Word document. In such case, you can make the user ID box of the Windows login screen blank and type your password there (make sure that you remember your user ID the next time you need it). But do not hit Enter button or Login tab.

If you are sure that your keyboard keys are not functioning correctly, you may consider connecting a properly-functioning external keyboard (if possible) to your laptop and then see if the password gets entered correctly.

Hope this will resolve your issue.

How to set up wireless home network with a DSL subscription.


If you have a DSL, "Digital Suscriber Line", most companies will provide you with a modem. Usually the modem will have only one ethernet connection, meaning you can only connect one computer.

In order to connect multipule computers you will need a wireless router, ethernet HUB, or router.

Connecting with wireless Router

The only thing you really need to change is the following 3 settings on the Wireless Router. The SSID (so you know what wireless network is yours), the WPA/PSK and or WPA2/PSK, encryption method TKIP key or password. Under "administration" change the administrator password for a secure wireless connection. ( WRITE DOWN YOUR PASSWORD)

Connect to your wireless router

1. Plug in either your (1) wireless card, (2) PCMCIA wireless card, or (3) USB wireless stick.

2. Turn on your laptop or desktop computer. Select the wireless router with the strongest signal and with the name of your routers (SSID) and click connect.

3. Open your web browser and type 192.168.1.1
If this dosn't work, check your wireless router instruction manual for the correct IP address for your model.

4. Your router will ask for a password, usually (admin, admin) works or (admin, (ENTER) ) try both. If neither work try resetting the router by holding in the reset button for 3 seconds.

Once you log on to your router you can set parameters to your liking or just set the , {SSID}, {WPA/TKP} key or password, and the router administrator password to keep others from accessing your network and possibly computer.

Ethernet

Start at step 3 above.

We use eee pc by acer, set up the password for the first time. now when i type the correct password, it won't accept it. I downloaded a file called InfraRecorderPortable_0.52.paf.exe, put it in a USB...


Okay, first the password problem. Passwords are almost always case-sensitive now, so make sure that your caps lock is in the same state it was in when you first set the password. I have seen it happen that someone will set the password while their caps lock is on, then when they try to log in later with the caps lock off, they get a wrong password error. More often, though, is the opposite. You set the password with the caps lock off, and are trying to log in with it on.

The second problem is a little more complicated. First of all, the file InfraRecorderPortable_0.52.paf.exe is an installation file, which means it won't do the CD burning as it is. If you want to use the portable version of that software (for example, you have a friend that doesn't have that program on their computer, and they don't want it installed, but you still want to use it)you'll have to run the program and when it asks where you want to install it, select your USB stick. It should be able to run from there without any other supporting programs.

My password protected scandisc cruzer usb stick is refusing to accept the correct password-any solution


Unfortunately, you can NOT access your user data and applications on the device without a password.

If you think you are entering the correct password, ensure that CAPS lock or NUM lock is not turned on. You should try to type your password in another application (like word or email) to ensure that it is being entered correctly. This can help you see if CAPS lock, NUM lock, or a sticky key is causing the password to actually be entered incorrectly.

Password attempts
There's a set number of attempts before U3 locks your device and you have to reformat it.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

Password hint
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not set a hint or still can not remember your password you will have to reformat the drive.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

It is recommended to keep a backup of all the data on your U3 device on your PC for safe keeping.

Administrator password for samsung r519


trans.gif?cver=2.13.0068.5 1Sign In to Vote Your post is a rare exception! The vast majority of password-related posts deal with machine on which there is just one single admin account. When it goes bad then it really hurts.
Since I do not know what's going on with your machine I suggest you try some diagnostics, e.g. like so:
  1. Reboot into Safe Mode.
  2. Log on under your alternative admin account.
  3. Click Start.
  4. Type the three letters cmd into the Search box.
  5. Press Ctrl+Shift+Enter
  6. Click "Run as Administrator".
  7. Type the following commands and press Enter after each of them:
    net user "xxx"
    (replace xxx with the name of the problem account)
    (make a note of the date/time when the password was last set)
    net user "xxx" 123456
    (This will set the password to 123456. Use this value because it is insensitive to keyboard layouts)
    net user "xxx"
    (is the password date/time correct?)
  8. Reboot into Safe Mode.
  9. Log on under the xxx account with a password of 123456. Does it work?
  10. Reboot into Normal Mode.
  11. Log on under the xxx account with a password of 123456. Does it work?

I have forgotten my password for logging on to windows xp. is there any way I can reset the whole computer and start over.


No problem! We can recover Windows XP admin password.
Just download our windows password Recovery Tool 3.0 to recover your lost Windows passwords.
How does it work?

Just use the box below to download the utility. This is a ".exe" file which will burn itself onto a blank CD. Then pop the CD into your locked PC, and
boot from the CD.

If you have an Internet connection on your locked PC then it will automatically upload the encrypted password to our server for decryption. Once
decrypted, we will send you an email advising you where to log in to view your Windows password.

If you don't have an Internet connection to your locked PC, you can extract the encrypted password to a USB stick and upload manually to our website for
decryption.

It supports usb flash drive too.
