Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.
====1st Method====
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account “Administrator” and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it’ll show Classic Login box. Now type “Administrator” (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from “Control Panel -> User Accounts”.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
====2nd Method====
1. Reboot your machine.
2. Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.
o Do not press F5 as used on the NT/9x series of Windows.
3. You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.
4. Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.
5. Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
6. Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
7. Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
o The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other users on your system.
8. Login as the admin.
9. Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue using Safe Mode.
10. Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
11. Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.
12. Login as the user for which you set the password.
====3rd Method====
Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten password by using “Reset Disk”. If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. To know more about it, please visit following links:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305478
====4th method====
Comparatively, using windows password Recovery Tool utility is a reliable and convenient method for solving the password problem. Normally, the program can easily reset the password to “Blank” with no -reformatting or installation. Do all the job for you automatically. Unfortunately, it is not safe to use some free recovery tool to recover windows password. So here is the recommend recovery tool:windows password Recovery Tool 3.0 .

If it doesn't work above ,I hope that you have some hacker friends.

If you lost windows password or do not know the password. I think the best solution is making a windows password recovery disk with the third part utility. The disk works perfectly to recover windows password to “Blank”.It is also useful for administrator password recovery, you can wrote it to an blank CD or USB flash drive to recover administrator password. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

It depends on the type of password. If the password is before windows begin's to load, then it is a BIOS password or HDD password. These are hardware based and require the assistance of Dell Tech Support to reset. If the password if to enter WIndows, then you can:

  1. Reinstall Windows
  2. Try the options listed here: http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm

How do i get 12 month financing


On the sign-in page, click "Forgot password". They'll send you an email that allows you to choose a new password. You'll probably need a Paypal account also.
Don't make your passwords simple.
Write down all your usernames and passwords on a piece of paper. Make it organized so it makes sense and keep it some place you can pull it out easily. Expect you'll have 50 or 60 Websites/usernames/passwords before long. Keep them all on lists. Its best if you use your computer to make a list and print them out. That way its easy to edit the list into alphabetical order now and then. Don't store the file in your computer though...store it on a USB drive or an SD card in case anyone hacks into your computer.
Hope you can get your eBay and PayPal accounts set up before the auction closes.

How do Setup a password for my router already have one password need to set a password for guest


You need to use your browser to log in to your router. Locate the guest account in the menu and set a new password. If you'd like, many routers allow you to disable guest accounts entirely. If you need specific step-by-step instructions, I need to know what brand and model router you are using, what OS your computer has, and what browser you use for accessing the internet.

Step 1:
The first thing you want to do is check to see if you can get into the computer the easy way. Try signing on as a guest. If there is no "guest" option try typing in: guest then press enter. If this fails, no need to worry, just move on to the next step. If this step fails then just Hit ctrl + alt + del. Under the username put the word "administrator" and put nothing under password. Most likely this will work, since there is a secret administrators account in every computer. If by any chance this does not work: continue to the next step... If you are on the computer already and need a way to access the computer in the future without knowing the password try this: Go to the start menu, then to "control panel", click on "user accounts"... Make another account with your own password to it! This way you can sign in with your own user name and there's no need in knowing the password. The downside to this though is that the computer often displays all usernames once you sign on. Restart the computer and find out, on some computers it doesn't! This last step is a bit drastic, but you can change the password on the computer given that you are already signed on. You don't have to know the password in order to change it.

Cant log in to computer.dont know password. bought at auction


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instruction exactly.

I bought this toshiba satellite m20 in an auction. its asking for an administrator password. HOw can i remove the password?


Is the BIOS asking for a password or is Windows asking for a password? If it's the BIOS then you might never get the password off. Seldom can you remove the password from a laptop's BIOS without already knowing the password. If it's Windows that's asking for the password, then try reinstalling your operating system. This will get rid of the password and anything else that may be lurking around in the computer from the previous owner.

It could be a lot of things. Ebay server was busy, at the time of request. Your server could have been busy. I would request ebay to re-send the forgotten password.

Dont know ebay user id or email adress or password. was going to make a new account but when i came to putting my card details in it said this card is already in use, how do i cancel old account without...


Do you know the ID of the old account? If yes then on the login page give this old ID and click on forgotten password. A new password will be sent to your email account. Everywhere on the internet wherever they ask you for login, there is a facility of "Forgotten Password". They know that we tend to forget the password sooner or later.

Go to faxonautoliterature and put your truck in on the home page. When your truck page comes up, scroll down to the bottom. They have a manual there on swapping motors. From experience it should give you part numbers, modifications needed and pictures, everything you'll need to know to do your job. It cost's $24.95. Hope this helps.
