Is it asking for the user name and password at windows or at the bios?

If its windows then just boot the computer go into windows in safe mode, keep pressing the f8 ke during boot and you will have the option to go in in safe mode, when you get to the logon screen click on the administrator account, go into control panel, user accounts and just delete the password for the account name. Re-boot and you are in.

If that doesnt solve it let me know

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.

I forgot my password how do i log on


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your computer and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log pasword
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and its difficult to break into its password.

Take care.

Unlocking


Hello there. My name is Alex and im here to help solve your problem

Is it your windows username password you've forgotten? If this is the case, then its pretty simple. Log into the administrators account when windows boots, if you cannot see the administrators account, then quickly press twice ctrl + alt + delete. You will then need to type in administrator and you will now have access

Next, go to the control panel, user accounts and enter the user account which you cannot enter, you will then see the option 'remove password' and you will not be prompted to enter the password, it will just remove it. Finally log out of the administrators account and log into your own

If you have any problems or more questions, please let me know

Password recovery


If the password window has come for first time then don't enter any password. Leave the password window blank. In the user name enter Administrator and log on. If this does not help enter administrator or admin in password field. But this should be second option.

My suggestion is that you downgrade from Window Vista to Window XP as till date Windows Vista has lot of bugs relating to security issues.I myself have done that.
