Forgot Windows 10 password, no repair or password recovery disk.

Q: Forgot Windows 10 password, no repair or password recovery disk.

So, I installed Windows 10 last week. Yesterday I explored a bit and discovered Windows Edge, their new email/ outlook client. I attached my personal Gmail address to the service as well as my corporate address. My corporate account required me to create a new password that fit my company's security standards, which I did, but, after feeling like my company address was restricting how I use my personal home computer, I removed that address. Here's where I get fuzzy, I cannot, for the life of me remember, if I changed my password back to one that didn't conform to my company's security standards or if I left it alone. All I know is that once my computer locked later that night, I was unable to get back in. I've tried every permutation of every password, including that corporate password, I've ever used with no success.

I do not have a password reset disk nor do I have a system repair disk with which to reinstall Windows 10.

So, how screwed am I? Will I have to reinstall Windows 7, the last OS I have a disk for, and hope I can reupgrade to Windows 10?

P.S.
I did not attach my MSN email address (aka my Microsoft Account) to my computer, so resetting my password that way is a no go.

@Hilln632? You must create the Password Reset Disk before you need it. Password Reset Disk is for a "local" account, that is, it is not used to reset your Microsoft account. Reference Guides - "How-to": I forgot my password can HP help me reset it HP PCs - How to Recover Your Forgotten Password (Windows 10) How to Create a Password Reset Disk on USB Flash Drive in Windows 10  Reference:Password Reset Disk When you see a Post that helps you,Inspires you, provides fresh insight,Or teaches you something new,Click the "Thumbs Up" on that Post. Fixed / Answered?

Hi all,

I was wondering if you may be able to help, I'm a bit scuppered by this!

I can install operating systems but I'm faced with the following catch-22 situation:

1. Toshiba C50-A-1JN laptop
2. Forgot O/S password
3. Never made a password recovery disk
4. Solution - re-install
5. Problem - W8 never properly shuts down, goes into some sort of hibernation mode, so when I hit F12 at start-up, it doesn't register because it's "awakening" from hibernation and not booting up from a complete shut-down
6. 2nd solution? Turn off hibernation - in the O/S, which of course I can't access because I've forgotten the password! Circle of doom complete!

So in a software-sense, I've bricked the laptop.

My brother's a former laptop repair technician, but lives in another country. He suggests I remove the CMOS battery to execute a complete power-down. Thus I should be able to access the BIOS.

I don't suppose there's an easier option?

Thanks Windows 8!

I forgot Windows password  (Asus X534C, windows 7 Home Premium) and don't have a disk done to restore it. I'm the unique user. I think that I have my account as Administrator, but I am not sure.
 
In the 3 kinds of safe mode, always asks the password before showing anything more. Thus, I don't know how to open command prompt...
 
I read about some tools to do this, but I don't dare to use them without your advice, afraid they are unsafe. 
 
I found:
 
 - Password Recovery Bundle 
 - PCUnlocker
 - Windows Password Key
 
Are they safe and efficient or do you have a better option?
Is it safe to do the download into the usb drive using my netbook that is infected probably by Comodo (the process to fix it is taking too much time)? 
 
Thank you in advance to anyone who can help me, as none of my computers is working properly.

you might have the hidden admin account available which I think by default doesn't have a password - then you can change your user one.

Hi - I am at wits end because after dealing with several update/driver/virus problems in windows 8.1, my system went into total recovery mode with none of the options helping.  When I was limited to turning it on and ONLY getting a black screen with the blue password box, I had to set it aside for a bit before I lost my mind.  When I tried copying my files to a usb, I realized that all my passwords that I had saved on a document, did not copy.  Before I lost my mind, I had to set it aside for a while and figure out what to do.  Upon returning to it, I realized that I forgot that exact system password and could not retrieve it, as well as my email password with which I set up my account with (and I also changed phone numbers within this time)! Therefore, I went back to researching my latest issue with this system (that I can't believe has been the BIGGEST pain in the rear that I have ever had) and haven't found a solution.  I am usually self sufficient and have learned a lot about computers in the past year, but I just don't have any fight left in me for this.  Please let me know who I can send the information about my computer too and I pray that someone can help me get in there.  Thank you.

A:Inspiron 3521 system in recovery forgot bios password

If it's the Windows password, you can restore the system from  your recovery media without it -- if you didn't prepare a set, call Dell to purchase one.
If it's a system password (BIOS/UEFI power on password), you will need to call Dell support by voice phone.  Be prepared with your ownership details and, unless the system is in warranty, with a credit card -- the call will not be free unless the system is in warranty.

Well I changed my password on a whim, changed my hint to "no hints". No I did not create a password reset disk. Moving on... I have tried loginrecovery.comthe Offline NT thingand the software on password-reset.com There seems to be a common problem. On Peter Nordahl's thing (offline NT) it says "sam registry not loaded". Login recovery software says can't read hive file. The password-reset.com software just displays nothing. And the icing on the cake is I can't find/lost my vista disk and everything else that came with my computer. Its a dell inspiron 531.

A:I forgot my administrator password. And I lost my Vista disk.

You can request a Vista disc from Dell, then boot to it and choose Repair, then system restore and that will roll back the password.

I tried the "create a password reset disk" wizard and although most all tutorials and sources of reference call it a disk, using my DVD/CD drive to create a "disk" is excluded from the options presented. When I edit and enter the drive letter I get the error message: "The disk is not a password recovery disk" I would prefer not to purchase a thumb drive just for this since it costs more and is easy to lose or delete.

Does anybody know what gives? Thanks in advance.

Well, I own a D-Link DIR-615 Router, And I forgot my router log-in, AND Wi-Fi Passwords. I went on a trip somewhere, and my computer was reset when I left with it. (Still have PC connected though.) And I just CANNOT reset the thing. I tried default etc etc. But I need to find a way... =\ I still have one Vista computer working with it, But the password comes out to: ***** or dots. (its hidden) Is there a way to show them?

Also, Is there a way to change your MAC adress?
 

A:Forgot Router log-in password/Wifi password, Cannot be Reset (As in; not going to)

As I think that you already know, the solution is to reset the router to factory defaults. When you reconfigure it tape the pertinent account/password/encryption key information to the bottom of the router.

Some ISPs track the MAC Address of the device connected to the modem. It is perfectly fine and easily done to clone the registered MAC address to the router's WAN to avoid having to call the ISP. There is no other need that I know of to change a MAC Address.

Other than the above advice your thread is subject to our password rule:

Hello All,
   I need to remove user passwords. Yes I have removed Admin password. I have used Trinity, Hiren's boot disk, UBCD and other linux and password removal programs. I want to remove the user passwords from the login. I have done the safe mode startup and disabled the EUFI. I cannot login to the admin or safe mode unless i enter the user password. Which is what I am trying to remove. I have watched videos and read tutorials and all of them tell me to login and then change the password. Is there any possible way to remove this? I am talking about the main user login that has the user name with the email under it. Is there a way to remove them from pulling the hard drive and accessing it through usb as an external drive. I have been through multiple forums and all with the same thing. They all tell me to login and then change the safe mode or user settings. I want to remove the user password without loging in. PLEASE do not send me a site that shows me how to remove password after loging in or login and change the start up or settings. I already know how to do those things. Like I said I already removed admin password, but I cannot login or it does not show that user as a choice to login. Yes I am very frustrated with this. I think I am going to quit my job and quit working on computers if this is what Is installed for the future.   <<<<this is how I feel. DUMB!!   

A:Remove login password/ forgot password

That's a touchy subject...yes, there are ways to do what you want, but...I'm hesitant to assist, since there's no way for me to know what your intentions are or whether or not you have ownership of/ should have access to  the PC in question.  I know that sounds unhelpful at best and rude at the least, but...I'd go back to Google, if I were you.

A:i forgot my windows password

Hello Kak2a2,

If you have another administrator account, you could use it to easily change your account's password while logged in the other account. If you don't then while logged in, enable the built-in Administrator account, log on to it, and change your account's password.

Hope this helps,

Hi

You can easily reset the password using "Trinity Rescue Kit" ( free ).

Download the image from below link and burn to a blank disc.

I recommend watching the below video guide before using it.

Since Brink has this tutorial, I have to believe it's okay to post a link to it.

User Account Password - Change from WinRE

You or your Uncle will need a Windows 7 install DVD or flash drive to boot from.


If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, or it's not up to the Service Pack level currently installed, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:

Windows 7 Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file. Just be careful during the install not to accidentally install some of the bundled junk that comes with it. Always take The Custom Install option.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO.
The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.

If you are just using the Recovery Console you do not need a key.

You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.Download and run Universal USB Installer Easy as 1 2 3[/*]
Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom[/*]
Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file[/*]

If you are on XP Pro, the on the Logon screen hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice, and it will take you to the old 98 logon screen. here type in Administrator as the user, without a password, and login in, then go to control panel and deal with the situation.

If you are on XP Home, then you'll have to boot into safe mode, enter into the administrator account, and fix the problem there.

I haven't been on my computer for awhile and today when I turned it on and the log on screen came up and asked for a password I forgot it. I have tried all my passwords but they don't work. Of course I didn't set up a hint question or create a reset password disc or even have a guest account set up. I know I can use my recovery discs but I have pictures saved to my hard drive and no where else and don't want to lose them. Any suggestions? I contacted HP (my model is a Pavilion 520n) and they haven't answered any of my e-mails. I was hoping someone could help.
 

A:HELP! Forgot Log On Password for Windows XP

Did you ever set a master Administrator password? If not, (or if you did and remember that one) boot into safe mode. Start pressing F8 right after the first computer logo screen ends. On the screen that presents, use the arrow keys to navigate to "safe mode" and hit the enter key. Log on as "Administrator," go to user accounts in the control panel and change the password for your user account to something you can/will remember.
Reboot and log into your account with the new password. While in safe mode the screen seems small and mostly black. This is normal. Just use the start menu as usual.

I forgot my windows xp password, except reinstallation, is there another way to get access to my laptop? This is the question I usually see in the computer forum. Forgot windows xp password? How to fix this problem? Search information on Internet or resort to computer engineers? After read this post, you will find a way out.

On one hand, if you forgot password of local administrator, then cracking its password is a piece of cake.( there is a default built-in administrator account with no password in Windows XP). In this situation, forgot xp password never bring trouble to you.
Built-in administrators can change the passwords of administrators, access to any local administrative account. It will yield an entry to the user account under control panel. Therefore,you will need to start the computer normally to see if your built-in admin account is unlocked . Then you will have one of two screens: The welcome screen, or the Windows Logon screen when it finishes loading.

If it is a welcome screen (Windows XP Home default) you will need to press CTRL ALT DEL simultaneously, and then again. The welcome screen should change to the advanced login screen, that you may already have if you have turned off the welcome screen. Next, for username type in Administrator, leave the password blank.
If you can get in with this account, click on start and click run. Type "Control UserPasswords2". From here, adjust the passwords of the target account on the computer as you like.

This is my sisters laptop. My mom has am account on there. The problem is my mom forgot the password to her account so she can't log in to change the settings. My sisters account doesn't have a password but it's useless because my sister has a "restricted" account so in order to make any changes to the computer you need an administrator account which my mom has but forgot the password to. You can't unmute the sound let alone change the desktop wallpaper without it asking you for a password. My mom tried everything and eventually gave up trying to log in. I tried to reinstall the operating system but the CD/ DVD drive doesn't work. It makes noise when a CD is inserted but nothing loads not even a music CD will load up. Any ideas on how to get that password or how to reinstall the OS? My mom says to just reinstall the OS even if she loses everything but I can't with the CD drive not working. I tried the ISO to USB but that doesn't work either. Help is appreciated.

Greetings all,
I recently had a friend ask me how to login to their Windows 10 laptop.
It seems they have an Asus laptop that came originally installed with Windows 8.
They decided to utilize the online Windows 10 upgrade.

They tell me that they can't remember what password they used during the installation.
They do not have installation media for the original Windows 8 installation.

I know I can supply this individual with a bootable USB drive with a version of Linux and maybe retrieve their data files from their HDD. However, if they would like to continue using Windows 10, I was wondering what the best plan of action to take to solve this issue.

Thanks!

I have not logged into here (WinSevenForum) for a long time! Obviously I remember my PW here. Wish it was the same for win 7. I do not remember my admin PW. Is this the right forum section?

I did not use any type of password recovery tool/program. There seems to be the only account on the computer (Admin). While I have never used it, I do have Ubuntu set up on it without a PW - dual boot. The computer I am on now and one in the living room are part of a homegroup/network. I am not network savvy. I just followed general instructions to hook them all up to my surprise all 3 have worked great for a long time! I just hooked them together to occasionally drop music or files into a "public" folder and have all 3 online. I mention this because I can access the locked computer. But, do not know if I can get admin privileges/command line or other areas. I have no idea what to do.

The locked cpu is WIN 7 64bit..... It seems many of the Win 7 crack tools are for 32 bit? Right now I am getting something called Ophcrack. Which appears to work on 64 bit. If this does not work what do I do next? If there is a much better program... I am open to paying $50-100. If I can pay $10 that is even better. If I can do it for free GREAT!

This is an HP pavilion dv9000 notebook pc. Belongs to a friend of mine. He got it used. He put a password to get into the bios, which he remembers. But he doesnt remember the password to get into windows vista. He doesnt have a recovery disk, all he has is the notebook and power cord.

To get into the bios, that is the password he remembers. But once inside the bios there are 2 passwords, one is Administrator password and the other is power-on password. Would any of these 2 defeat the windows password? They might even be the same password that gets me into the bios, which password i do know. But i can only get into the bios, i cant get into windows and this the password i need.

I read in an HP online manual about defeating the RTC password and i could do all that but i am wondering if that will defeat the windows password or if it just deletes the passwords in the bios? I dont see in HP anything else that can help me out so i am turning to the people who always do help me out, thats you.

Thank you for reading this and any help you can offer.

Running TSG SysInfo would be useless, because I am having to make the inquiry from an entirely
different computer.

The computer in question, however, is a Dell Inspiron desktop, running Windows 7.

Five or six months ago, in setting my then-new Dell computer I evidently responded to a prompt by creating a bootup password, with an accompanying Hint. But through those months the computer never asked for the password, <b>until two days ago</b>. It prompted me with "wherehus", (the "hus" being "husband", referring to me) which I believe to be a truncated version of the hint I set up originally. It now suddenly wants the password. and why that change and why the hint is truncated, I have no idea. I apparently never wrote down what the password should be, like a natural-born fool.

That hint had to continue with something like BORN, EDUCATED, SERVED IN ARMY, MARRIED, and the like. "BORN" could be Rochester, or Rochester Minnesota, or St. Mary's or St.Mary's Hospital or something like that. If it was "ARMY", the password would surely be Germany. And so on with names of grade and high school, university, or private business school, many of them having several possible "answers", as above. And maybe some other "wheres" that I can't think of. Of course any of those would be subject to capitalization, spacing, and/or punctuation. A password wilderness.

Hi sivakesava574,
If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows. However you can try out the steps offered in the link below.

Hi all,

My girlfriend is in Thailand at the moment.
I setup a password for her account using remote assistance, but at the time her computer was set to Thai language and I did not realise when typing the password in. She said she has tried changing the language by doing <alt+shift> and typing the password I set in different languages but she said it is not working.
The only account she had setup was called "Administrator". Is this the same account that is used for Safe Mode? Or does Safe Mode have it's own hidden Administrator and the password cannot be changed unless you change it within Safe Mode?

I am so annoyed at the moment >,<,

Kind regards,
