Difficulty with logon and resetting passowrd after pressing F9 in bootup?

Posted by on

  • fahyk Jul 27, 2008

    Nah F9. According to the ASUS web site, it states to reset to factory resettings (kids have activated a password and i have no idea what this is) i push sharp object into reset button at the back and as it reboots press F9. this gives me the option to reset to manufacturers settings. I do this but on rebooting it asks me for the password again?

    Did you mean F8 during bootup?

Oh sorry, what computer/operating system are you using. Is the password when you boot the computer, or in the operating system?

How To Change Password Of Users In Windows XP


On Internet, I found so many people are confused about how to change the passwords of users in Windows XP even though it is a easy job. As far as we know, changing logon password of our Windows regularly is a good habit to help keep our PC secure, I just researched and found out the below ways to change the password of users in Windows XP. You can use either one to achieve your goal.
Follow the simplest ways you thought to change your Windows XP logon password:
If you know any other interesting way, please let me know through comments.
Using Control Panel
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Changing your Windows XP logon password usually takes less than a few minutes
Here’s How:
go to Start –> Control Panel –> User Accounts
Tip: You can also open control panel by Start –> Run –> control. This will open Control Panel.
Select the user for which you want to change the password and select Change my password.

Note: you must need appropriate privileges to change the password of another user.
Using Ctrl+Alt+Delete
Difficulty: The easiest one in my opinion
Time Required: It just takes me one minute
Here’s How:
If your press Ctrl+Alt+Del when you are logged onto your Windows XP machine, it will show you the classic security options.

Select change password and change the password of the logged on user.
Note: If the security options does not appear. Task manager shows up instead of the security options. Just go to Start –> Control Panel –> User Accounts –> Change the way Users Log on or off.
Uncheck Use the Welcome Screen. Log off and logon again. Now pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del will show the security options window.
Using Command Prompt
Difficulty: medium
Time Required: It may takes a few minutes
Here’s How:
go to Run –> cmd.
Command prompt will open. Use the following commands to change the password:
net user username password /domain
Replace username with the original username and password with the new password you want to assign to that user. /domain is optional. If you are in a domain environment, specify the domain name otherwise, if you’re using a local user, leave /domain. If I want to change the password of user Sanix to 12345. I will issue the following command at command prompt:
net user Sanix 12345
It will change the password of the user Sanix to 12345.
9b1a7e6.jpg
Note: if you’re not logged on as an administrator, you will get the following error:
“System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied”
Using Control userpasswords2
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: It may takes less than a few minutes
Here’s How:
go to Start –> Run –> control userpasswords2
This will open the classic user accounts management window. Select any user and select reset password.

Using Computer Management Console
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: It may takes a few minutes
Here’s How:
right click My Computer –> Manage –> Local Users And Groups –> Users
Right click the username for which you want to change the password and select Reset Password.
26e4e36.jpg
If you compare the ways hereinabove carefully .You’ll find that the premise of using above ways to change your PC users password is you must logon the system with a user who has the appropriate privileges to change the password of another user. But if you forget any user password including administrator, what can you do?

  • This will delete all data and reset your eee pc.

5.Now go to the Control Panel and change the password of your user.

Next step is remove hard drive and see if it is recognized in another computer. The Hard Drive could just be bad, but you need to rule out the motherboard drive controllers that could also be bad. Also try a known good drive in your system.

I forget my computer password thatn is administator password in h


. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start yourcomputer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.I tested the above on Windows XP Pro with and without SP1 and also used this method in a real situation where someone could not remember their password and it worked like a charm to fix the problem. This security hole allows access to more than just user accounts. You can also access the Registry and Policy Editor, for example. And its gui access with mouse control. Of course, a Product Key will be needed to continue with the Repair after making the changes, but for anyone intent on gaining access to your system, this would be no problem.
And in case you are wondering, NO, you cannot cancel install after making the changes and expect to logon with your new password.
Cancelling will just result in Setup resuming at bootup and your changes will be lost.Ok, now that your logon problem is fixed, you should make a point to prevent it from ever happening again by creating a Password Reset Disk. This is a floppy disk you can use in the event you ever forget your log on password. It allows you to set a new password.Here's how to create one if your computer is NOT on a domain:Go to the Control Panel and open up User Accounts. Choose your account (under Pick An Account to Change) and under Related Tasks, click "Prevent a forgotten password". This will initiate a wizard. Click Next and then insert a blank formatted floppy disk into your A: drive. Click Next and enter your logon password in the password box. Click Next to begin the creation of your Password disk. Once completed, label and save the disk to a safe place How to Log on to your PC Using Your Password Reset DiskStart your computer and at the logon screen, click your user name and leave the password box blank or just type in anything. This will bring up a Logon Failure box and you will then see the option to use your Password Reset disk to create a new password. Click it which will initiate the Password Reset wizard. Insert your password reset disk into your floppy drive and follow the wizard which will let you choose a new password to use for your account.
