Look, if you mean you're user account password, then access control panel, select user accounts, click your user icon then select
"change my password".

I keep getting the wrong password message

Then you are putting the wrong password in, or you may have set the password with caps lock on, try it again in caps or in lowercase.
If you still cant log on, try this

right click on the partition select properties. go to security menu. select the users and then edit or modify what they can do. you cant really place a password on the partition. but if you have a user password for your pc you can also control what they can and cant access that way too.

Cant log in windows!

Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.

We cant reset our password because we dont have the wizard cd.not only that we never set the password anyway the computer came with it and we want to set our own password.

Is that a Bios password? then take out its cmos battery for a short time then place it back again this should rest to its default configuration without the password or clear it using its cmos reset jumper header on the motherboard. Consult manual for more info.

Do this when unit is off and unplugged to source outlet. Touch first the frame of your case to free you of static.

If this password is from user accounts. Log on to it goto control panel goto user account select account to be set with your password enter old pass,new pass then confirm it. your now set. Do this changes using account with administrator privilidge.

Hope it helps

Bios password on acer 9420

there isnt a defayuly one usually set up.  every time i have ever ran into a password on a bios it has been set by a user.  there is a work around though.  download a user manual for your motherboard and look through it for a password jumper.  most motherboards have a jumper then when removed will reset the password to nthing and allow you access to thebios without loosing everything in the bios.  short of that a password usually cant be passed without actually knowing it and that is why it is there in the first place.

OUt of warrenty and need to restore settings/computor.I cant log on in administor account. cant even create an administor account. can you help?

If this is Windows XP, have a friend download and burn the Ophcrack bootable CD. Boot it and follow the directions. If your password is no longer than eight characters, then it will recover your password for you. Results head south when passwords are both longer and more securely structured, especially in Vista, but I've had only one "lost XP password" it could not locate for me in quite some time.
