Use the original OS disk it came with. Go through the as if you're reinstalling the OS, but on the top menu when your hard drive icon comes up, select Utilities/Reset passsword. Select the user, and change password..best to leave it blank for now. It will prompt you the password has been reset ( no password.) Quit and restart machine under normal log in except with no password.


Hope this helps.

If you forgot your password, I am not for sure exactly what is the best way but I you can get into the BIOS setup page to reset the password or the worse case, you need to rerun your recovery on the new hard drive from fresh and setup everything as a new user then install Norton Ghost to do the cloning to bring back all content from your old drive. I hope that my solution is not a smart way but may give you some hints.

How do i undo my system password?

System Password? No Such Thing!!!

The Three Types of Passwords are:
Bios Password - which is a password the comes up before the machine will even start booting. If you set this password, you should know it. The only way to remove a Bios Password if the take the laptop apart and remove the CMOS battery that is on the motherboard and let it sit for an hour or so until the computer completely loses memory of everything including the date, time, passwords.

Hard Drive Password - The hard drive password is set by the owner of the laptop to prevent thieves from getting to sensitive data if the laptop is stolen. 99% of the time if someone don't know the Hard Drive Password, then the laptop is stolen. If you're smart enough to set the hard drive password, then you should be smart enough to remember it. The real owner can sometimes set the password remotely once the laptop is stolen. The only way to remove the hard drive password is type in the correct password.

Windows Password - This password is associated with a user id that shows up once windows has completely booted up. If you forgot this password, it can be reset depending on the operating system.

Windows 7 requires a Password Reset Disc that everyone should take the time to create if they want to use a password on their user account. Without the disc that was created on that computer you won't be able to get in.

Windows XP and Vista - Turn off the computer, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select Safe Mode and let the computer boot. When it comes to the login screen it will show the Administrator account and the user account for which you forgot the password. Click on the Administrator account and just click ok or enter for the password (hopefully you didn't create an Administrator's password and forgot it too). When you see the windows desktop in safe mode it will look differently. The icons will be bigger and the screen darker, but that is normal in safe mode. Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the user account for which you forgot the password, then select REMOVE PASSWORD, click OK and reboot your machine. This time let the computer boot up as it normally would.

I want to close down my Facebook account, but can't remember my password. Actually I donj't even remember making a password.

Hello, for a facebook account, there must be a password on the account for it to be active. If you remember the email address you used to make the account you can attempt to reset the password. Click on the forgot password link on facebook's home page right near where you sign in.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi, my problem goes like this.i changed my yahoomail password just 1 month ago. since i work regularly. i dont open my mail that often. since i dont go on the net for about half a month. i forgot the...

You can still retrieve your yahoo mail even without an alternate email address by going to this page https://edit.yahoo.com/forgotroot/
Select "Forgot my Password" and just follow the instructions given. You have to remember the answer to the security questions yahoo mail asked you when you sign up an account (like " Name of your pet", etc)
After the security questions, you can now create a new password. Good luck!

I changed my password on facebook sunday evening, but forgot to write it down. I tried later to get on but couldn't remember my password, so tried a few I thought I had chosen,, Now since Sunday I'm locked...

Go to the Facebook website and just go through the password reset process.

That means click on the FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD? button on the main Facebook login page.

Then an email will be sent to your registered email account containing a new reset password for your Facebook account. Once you have that, just log back into Facebook with the reset password and then you change it to something you like.

Just make sure you remember it this time and don't do this too often or your account will be disabled.

Good luck.

Forgot password blackberry curve 8310

I think all you can do it reset the device to disable the password completely. If you enter the password ten times incorrectly it will ask if you want to do a complete reset.

THIS WILL DELETE ALL YOUR PERSONAL DATA.

If you can, back up your device using the Blackberry Desktop Manager application before doing a reset. Then you can re-load all your personal data after the reset, instead of having to type it all in again.
