Is the password he has set being asked when you click on the username for entering windows or is it being asked as soon as you switch the computer on?

If you forgot your BIOS password. see this... http://www.wikihow.com/Break-a-BIOS-Password
If you forgot your windows Account Login password, the following page is a good description of your choices... http://pcsupport.about.com/od/tipstricks/tp/find-lost-windows-passwords.htm
Also, check out... http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/


If the above does not work, and you have important files that you don't want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.
Good luck.

I forgot the password of my router, Sagem F@st 2804 anyone on how to access again or reset the old password?


There is a button on the back of the router, it is inset and u need a pen or pencil to engage it. It's the factory reset, it will set the router to the factory settings. That means the password resets too. Then if u don't have the factory password google is your friend.

I forgot my password and i cant let my friends use this line


If you forgot the password, resetting the router will allow you to access the router's configuration screen again. However, this will reset the settings to default, and you will have to reconfigure the router.

To reset the router to the factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds. This clears the router's user settings, including User ID, Password, IP Address, and Subnet mask.

Here is the instruction manual for the WR850G Router (the above instructions are from page 1-8):

Forgot my password how do I re set it


Hi friend,
As you have mentioned that you have forgot the password for the router, so you can reset the router to factory settings by pressing the "RESET" button on the back of the router. It is a very samll button and you need a paper clip to press it.
What you need to do is, you need to take the paper clip, put it in a small hole on the back of the router and press and hold the button for atleast 30 seconds.
Once you release the button, the router will come back to its factory settings.
NOTE: If you will reset the router, all the settings on the router for Ethernet and the Wireless will be lost and the router needs to be reconfigured.

I have forgot my password for my lap top is there a way to reboot from factory settings?


Forgotten or lost Password -> "Methods to get into your PC/Laptop"

Factory settings -> Means the settings set by the OEM vendors when your first receive your PC/Laptop. You cannot boot into the factory settings once you have configure your PC/Laptop to your personal settings, but you can boot to "Safe Mode" and use the "Administrators" account to reconfigure other Users settings. To get back to "Factory Settings" you can use the OEM "Recovery CD" or "Recovery function from your Hard drive" depending on the OEM Vendors specifications for your PC/Laptop.

**Take note, All your data will be lost when you reverting your PC/Laptop to factory settings!!!

Hope it helps.

Forgot my password on start


Hi,

Which password are you referring Windows or BIOS. Well follow the below steps:

Reset BIOS Password: If you have forgot BIOS password then you have to reset CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps: Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battrey, remove it & then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a screwdriver while turning ON). It will short the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battrey & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

Inorder to reset the Windows password, I would suggest a full system recovery. To do so, follow the below steps:

Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

I forgot my password i have a sheet that says router username and router password but they are not working


Hi Friend,

If you have forgot the password then we have to reset the router to its factory default settings so that you can re-configure the settings (since the password of your choice is not working)

In order to reset the password please follow the steps:

1. At the back of the router there is a small/tiny button (red/black), this is the reset button.
2. Push and hold this button for 30 seconds(make sure the router is turned on).
3.After 30 seconds turn the router off and wait for another 30 seconds.
4.Turn it on and reconfigure the router as per your requirements.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

I forgot the security password


here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.
