@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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

How do i remove or change my windows vista administrator password without a set up disk or recovery disk when the only user showing is administrator? Thanks
 

A:lost administrator password and no set up or recovery disk

What type of computer do you have? Was Windows Vista pre-installed by the manufacturer, for example like a Dell, HP, Gateway computer?

Or, was it a generic, home or custom-built computer?

Since Windows XP, the next O/S's don't allow you to boot to Safe Mode and log on that way, to remove passwords.

You were advised by the software to create a Password Reset disc.....many people do not do that, though.

About the only safe, or legal way around this is to reinstall. You can use a borrowed disc, provided you match the License your computer has, to the disc you install from.

A Full System Recovery will also work but I am not sure a Repair Install would.....perhaps.

Keep in mind that you will most likely lose the hidden partition recovery, if you choose to do a full manual reinstall, using the regular Microsoft Windows Vista DVD that matches your License. It will require a format of the drive and you will lose your own files, so you can connect the drive to a working computer to rescue them before you wipe it out.

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.

I have an HP laptop. The operating system is Windows Vista professional. I changed the password but then forgot it. Now, I cannot use the computer. When I boot the computer it will display the first screen asking for the password.
I contacted HP support and was told that if I pressed f11 during startup the computer would reinstall the operating system.???? I was also told that hooking the usb port to my desktop system with a cable I could save the files from the laptop. I do not understand any of this. With the laptop password protected I cannot tell it to do anything.
Do I need to just replace the hard drive and load the operating system? The OS was pre loaded onto the laptop so I do not have and operating system disk.
Sure could use some help here.
Thanks

How to Create a Password Reset DiskWindows XP lets you create a reset disk so that, if you should forget your password, you'll be able to use the disk to reset the password.

Here's how (the following assumes your computer is not a member of a domain): Click Start | Control Panel and double click User Accounts.Click the account name under which you're logged on.Under Related Tasks in the top box on the left, click Prevent a forgotten password.On the first page of the wizard, click Next.On the next page, choose the drive letter of the disk on which you want to create the reset disk (typically a.Enter your current password.Click Next.Click Finish.This places an encrypted copy of your password on the disk. Now if you forget the password, you can use your reset disk to start the Password Reset Wizard and create a new password.

A:forgot password

Hi, In case the keyboard region has been changed, have you tried logging in via the on screen keyboard? If not, at the sign-in screen, click the Ease of Access icon ( bottom right ) and select On Screen Keyboard. Additionally, if you normally sign-on with an email and password, see if you can reset the password via another PC from the Microsoft page on the following link.  https://account.live.com/password/reset Otherwise, there is a general policy on the Forum not to provide methods to bypass Windows log-on passwords, however a local computer shop would be able to do this for you. Another option, if all your personal data etc is backed-up, would be to reset the notebook to its 'Factory Condition' and then set it up from the beginning ? if you don?t have your Recovery Media, the notebook will have shipped with a Recovery Partition which can be accessed at boot - ie shutdown the notebook, then start tapping away at f11 as soon as you power on. A full guide on this can be found on the following link. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00006110#!&AbT1%3Fjumpid=hpr_r1002_usen_link1 Regards, DP-K

A:I forgot my password..

Did you ever set a password on the account named Administrator? On XP Pro, if the Administrator is not on the Welcome screen you can login as the administrator by holding down the ctrl + alt keys and tapping the delete key twice. This brings you to the classic login. From there you can type in the user name Administrator and most likely a blank password. Many people forget to set the password for the administrator user.
