There is no easy solution. If you mean the motherboard system lock, ask the manufacturer. For hdd lock, remember the password or purchase a new hdd. Windows password; software available on dodgy web sites.

For got password can't get in


One thing comes to mind, other than trying all your old passwords that you can remember. Almost every laptop and p.c. has a "factory password" or "universal password" that techs, repair shops, police etc. use to access a password protected locked computer. The codes are built-in and cannot be changed. They are not usually easy to find, the codes that are, unless you know where to look and how to ask. If your comp is still under warranty, take it to the shop where you got it and see if they'll do it. I say that because opening the case will void the warranty. If it's not under warranty, open it up and write down the brand, model, serial #, c.p.u #, motherboard #, H/D # and maybe even the O.S. #. After that you can go online and try to find the "universal password". But when in doubt, call around some comp repair shops, explain the problem, ask for a price quote. Some will tell you those codes don't exist, but really, they do. Or better, if you know a "GEEK", take it to him/her. And no it's not a 4 letter word anymore, I am one. Good Luck. Grimm - If you succeed in getting a universal password, hold onto it.

How can I recover my old email if I don't remember all the dates & question asked in the re set your password windows.


Go to the mail provider portal, and use the option "forgot password", and carry on the procedure. Alternatively open a fresh e-mail account somewhere. From there tell your story to the mail company. They could ask you some specific questions in return, to check who you are. It's a common problem, no big deal.

I can't open it


The device could be locked into a password. Reset the password by clicking the options of password reset. A prompt should provide another asking to answer a secret question, once approved makes possible password reset into another code of choice. remember that reseting the password requires establshing another secret code question, that becomes handy whenever a password is lost. On a password lock, the only message displayed should be password related.

Locked computer ..can't remember password


Restart your PC and keep pressing f8 key you will get to advanced boot menu. In advanced boot meny select safe mode.
When you will boot into safe mode you will have administrator password by default with no password. Select that and login to the system under that account. Create new user account from safe mode and use that.

IF that will not work use 3rd partu utillities to reset password. Here are some of them.
