You administrative password is probably the same as the password created when you signed up with yuor server. Go toyour servers (ISP) website and sign in with your user name (usually the first part of your server email address) then click on Lost password. They will help you reocver it from there. Once you are in you need to go to control panel>user accounts > and configure it so that you are always signing in as the administrator.

I carnt unlock the code


if your using windows xp you can do the following:

#1 boot into safe mode (press F8 before windows starts),

#2 log onto the account named "administaor" NOT your normal account

#3 go into control panal and remove password from user account settings.

I cant remember how many times iv forgot my password and had to do this. that or reinstall windows but i dont think anyone wants that joy.

If you lost the admin password then you need to look down the hacking route or send your computer in to where you bought it im afraid

Im having trouble loggin in to my emachines desktop pc, when i enter the password onto the username account, it logs in, but the screen remains blank


Your account is corrupt. Either log in as an admin, recover your files and create a new account (but this way the cause of the corruption will still be there) or just do a full reinstall.
If you can't log in as admin then use a Linux Live-CD to access your files.

Ibought a second hand acer 5610z from a colleague he cant remember admin password i cant change user name i can access computer but i want to change the admin/owners name


There is a way of resetting the administrator password.
You need to use a so-called 'emergency boot cd' which uses a little piece of software to check and reset the password on the machine.

Two of those tools can be found here:
http://ebcd.pcministry.com/
and
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080526.zip

give it a go.

If still unsuccessful, try contacting Acer for the Restore cd/dvd if you don't have it, and do a clean reinstall of the machine. Or use a Windows XP OEM disk of the same kind (Home/Professional) and use the OEM key on the sticker on the bottom of the PC to do a clean reinstall. The last possibility doesn't install all drivers, so you'll have to download and install them from the Acer website. Don't forget: no drivers = no internet connection on the pc, so first of all download the drivers, put them on a USB stick or cd, and then reinstall the machine...

Forgot password to log in to pc


Hi,
Please mention your problem clearly....
If its BIOS password (when system boots it will ask for password) then shutdown the system and remove the COMS battery for 2 minutes which is present in the one of the corner of the motherboard.
If its user password (asking the user name and password) then you need to install a fresh copy of windows xp. to install a windows xp, Insert the XP bootable cd into the CD-ROM. Restart the system. Then the system will boot from cd. If its not asking to boot from cd then you need to change the settings on BIOS menu. When system restarts keep-on pressing the DEL or F2 keys or both. then it will take you to BIOS setup. there change the boot priority. Select first boot device as CD/DVD ROM. After please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Follow the steps.
