Reset admin password

Right click My Computer > Manage > Local Users and Group > Users. Right click Administrator > Set Password. You must be an Administrator to do this. This can be done in User Accounts within Control Panel (Win 7). Same principle, just looks different.

Lost Windows password:
  1. Log in as Administrator (try safe mode if you don't see Administrator).
  2. Login as other user (if other user is availible) and manage users. Must be an administrator. Steps noted above!
  3. Reformat computer.
  4. Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like

Don't know how to get sound to work after reformatting

Hi kra02,
In order to get your sound to work again you will need to download and install your audio driver on the machine again.
You mentioned that you have a Compaq, you can go online to the Compaq website to get your Audio driver and probably the other drivers for your machine since you reformatted then you need to install all drivers needed for your Compaq.
Check in device manager under control panel to see which drivers needs to be installed, then you can download from the Compaq site to have your machine running fine again.
Drivers that you probably will need to download is the Chipset Driver, Video Driver, Audio Driver, LAN or Ethernet Driver, these are drivers that are most important.
I hope this help.
Have a nice day,

I will like to install the sound drives on my computer because i lost every thing

When you reformat/reinstall your computer you need to reinstall all of your hardware drivers as well. You can download these from Compaq's website here:
On option 1 choose "Software & Driver downloads" and for option 2 enter in your Product Number, found on your compaq computer. Download and install each of the hardware drivers you need, then double-click on each of the files in succession and follow the on-screen instructions to install all of the drivers. You will likely need to reboot quite a few times.
Your audio should now be working!

About lost of my computer's driver cd

I have found many people with the same problems, nobody seems to know the easiest way to find drivers for free is in the Manufacturers WebSites.
It will be very rare if they don't have it, only the very old devices
are the exception.
You may be surprised with your driver making your devices work better than before, because most the time this drivers are updated, made compatible another Operating Sysstems, etc.

Good luck.
