And now whenever i try to download something, the computer askes for the password of my first user... How do I reset the password?

If you new user is an Administrator you can reset the original user password or delete the user. The exact method will depend on the operating system. Post your operating system and I will provide more details.

    I forgot my password


    Forgetting your User password is both annoying and easily fixable.
    Turn laptop on and repeatedly hit F8 till a black screen with white writing appears with multiple options for you to select.
    Highlight "Safe mode with command prompt" after a few minutes another screen will appear with the following.

    C:/ Yourcomputersname/Your user name>
    type "net user" press enter
    type "net user Your user account name * "
    (( Your User Name should appear under neath the "net user" command.
    Type "net user Your user name *
    It will ask you to enter a password, enter any password you like. Note the cursor will not move to show it recognised a key press this is for security purposes so please dont make a mistake.
    It will ask you to re enter the same password
    Re enter password then press enter
    COMMAND COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY should appear.

    Reboot laptop and sign in with original User Name and new password you typed in above.

    Forgot my password


    Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

    Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

    OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

    If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

    Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

    Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
    When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

    Reboot your machine.

    Forgot password for my laptop compaq armada 1750 notebook. I treid going in threw safe mode but it still asked for password. I tried going in as guest but it said account has been disabled.PLEASE...


    You can't enter the laptop until it has Guest Account Enabled. It is surely disabled. And for that Forgotten Password, try to remember that do you have any other user on that laptop. If yes, then log into on behalf of that user and change the password of yours by accessing the User Account Page in the Control Panel. This way you need not have to remember the Password of that account. And if you don't have any other administrator, then try a Hard Reset. You can do it by De-attaching every internal and external Attachable part of the Laptop.
    Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
