Yeah, to release the numbers lock Windows has to be up and running. You can try a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If this doesn't work, check out the link bellow to make a bootable password breaker disc.

I am with Virgin Media for my Broadband-TV-Telephone I'm trying to obtain my network name and address so I can link up to the newly bought iPad2


You can easily determine your wireless network name and password by logging in to your netgear router.
Open 192.168.1.1 on a browser and enter the login.
Default UN : admin
Default PW: password

once in, check the wireless settings. you will see there your network name (SSID) and the wireless key. If the wireless key is not showing, you can create a new one..

Hope that helps you.

I"ve created a password on


You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.

The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route:
Reboot Windows in Safe Mode.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2
Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.

My gateway notebook is locked n I can't remember my user password ..help very frustrated ...I tried ctrl alt del twice to make the admin acct pop up but nothing


Try booting in safe mode.

Restart your computer.

As the computer restarts, begin pressing the F8 key after the Gateway BIOS logo appears until the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen appears.

On the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press the ENTER key.

After logging on to Windows XP Safe mode, in the Desktop dialog box, click Yes.

Good luck, post back if this helps.

I got a dell latitude laptop from work. The only problem is that because it is old and was taken off our inventory list I can't seem to get it unlocked. The admins had forgotten the password for this...


Here's how to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll have it resolved soon :-)

Cant rember password


Restart the computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, or after the BIOS post ends, start taping the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu should appear. If the menu does not appear, restart the computer and try again. If the Keyboard has a F-Lock key, you may need to press it first right before pressing the F8 Key. This will have to be done fast before tapping the F8 key repeatedly. Once you are logged in under safe mode, you should be able to create a new user. Do that. Then restart again and let it boot up normally. Log on under the new user.

Those steps will get you onto the computer. As far as retrieving a lost password goes. I'm not sure that you can do it.

Security code for Nokia 2100


The main code used in Nokia phones is :
#pw+(master code)+Y#
This code is able to check, activate or remove Sim card restriction (SP-lock).
Use the * key to get the p, + and w chars.
'Y' has to be 1,2,3 or 4 - depending of what lock you what to deal with.

#pw+1234567890+1# for Provider-Lock status
#pw+1234567890+2# for Network-Lock status
#pw+1234567890+3# for Country-Lock status
#pw+1234567890+4# for SimCard-Lock status

# = DOUBLE-CROSS
W = PRESS "*" THREE TIMES
P = PRESS "*" FOUR TIMES
+ = PRESS "*" TWO TIMES
MASTERCODE = 1234567890
Y = NUMBER 1 TO 4

(master code) is a 10 digit code, based on the phones IMEI number.

Eg. To remove restriction on lock 1 type following code:
#pw+(master code)+1#
If you just want to check your phone use 10 random numbers Eg. 1234567890 as the (master code)
eg. To check if phone if restricted on lock 1 type the following code:
#pw+1234567890+1#

Bypass the SP lock With a Nokia 16xx/21xx/31xx/51xx/81xx

1. Insert SIM card of different provider.
2. Turn on the phone and press the UP VOLUME key for 3 sec.
Then release it and the phone says PIN CODE?
3. Press the "C" key.
4. Then Press * and wait until it disappears and appears again, then press * one more time and 04*PIN*PIN*PIN#

The phone now says: PIN CODE CHANGED (or ACCEPTED) and the SIM card is accepted until you restart the phone again.
NOTE: On version 5.04 Nokia has removed this option !
