Hi
You should reinstall your operating system. That should get rid of the password. Sometimes when you reinstall all your files go into a folder labelled windows.old so you should get them back.
Goodluck!

Password reset asking foir insertion of floppy disc or usb flash drive#


You should have created a floppy-disk (or USB flash drive) after you initially defined the password, so that you can now use that device to "reset" the password.

Or, search for "Nordahl Offline Password" -- it's a bootable CD that can "blank" an existing password. Then, boot from the 'C:' drive, and leave the password field blank, and you will be able to login, and then set a more-memorable password, and you will be able to create that floppy-disk (or USB memory-stick).

There is no disk drive on my mini dell laptop to insert the disc


This problem is posted in the ROUTER section so I am not quite sure what your problem is about and will have to hazzard a guess.

Most of the mini laptops do not have a a floppy drive. They do however tend to have slots for SD cards or USB ports
These ports can be used in a similar fashion to the old floppy drives and even as a similar devices to a CD drive.
If you have a program that needs some information from another place such as a floppy or cd
Then use another computer to transfer those things to either a USB thumb / flash drive or SD card if your min has that and then tell whatever is asking for a drive to look there.

This usually work very well

Brand new hp pavilion dv2839tx entered pass word & it`s not reconised,try to reset password,informed to use floppy disc or usb flash drive & try again,i have done this with blank floppy disc,still...


Let me help you with that concern!

First, the computer asks you for a Password Reset Disk right? And then you inserted a BLANK Floppy Disk since you dont have a Flash Drive. But here is the thing, the computer is asking you a "Password Reset Disk" and in order for you to do that is, after you created a password into your account at your computer, the computer suggests to create a reset disk by inserting a floppy drive or a flash drive. And what the computer is doing is copying the password data into the floppy drive or to a flash drive. So inserting a blank floppy drive will do nothing on recovering your password. You need a password reset disk, but then again i think you did created a reset disk, so what you can do is to Reinstall the Operating System. I know your files are important but that is the only last resource that we can do. My suggestion is just back up all your files by inserting you hard drive into another laptop or you can just call drivesavers. You may visit their website at www.drivesavers.com and this is only a tip if still want to backup your files. But the resolution is still reinstalling the operating system.

Thanks!
I know it will work. Be Positive!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated.

Good luck and thank you!
