  • Hi,

     

    If you forgot the password of system, the official answer is NO, there is no way to get the password back. However, if you have other user account who has Administrator right, such as Domain Admin account if the computer joins domain, you may try to use this user account to login to the computer and then reset the local administrator password. If no, you have to reinstall the system.

     

    By the way, you can unplug the hard disk and then connect it to another computer to back up your data in C: drive, reinstallation will not affect the data in other drive if you don’t format them.

    If forget the password of your windows, the most important thing is backup important data, and then try to recover the lost password.


    1. Reset windows password with windows password reset disk. If have a windows password reset disk, you can reset password easy and lose nothing.

     

    1.1. If you enter the wrong password when you attempt to log on, Windows displays a message that the password is incorrect. Click OK to close the message.

    1.2. Click Reset password, and then insert your windows password reset disk (or other removable media).

    1.3. Follow the steps in the Password Reset Wizard to create a new password.

    1.4. Log on with the new password. If you forget your password again, you can use the same password reset disk. You don't need to make a new one.

    Step 2. Click Command Prompt.
    Step 3. When a screen of Command Prompt appears, type "copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe" and press Enter. And then also type "copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe" afterwards press Enter key. When it ask you wether to continue, type Yes and press Enter.
    Step 4. Restart your computer. On the logon screen, tap Shift key five times and you'll see a command prompt in administrator mode, and you can reset password now. Type "net user UserName NewPassword" (replace the UserName and UserPassword with yours) and press Enter key. Close the window and then you can login Windows 7 with new password.

  • Locked out of my HP laptop in safe mode, and cannot access finger print verification or Admin profile!?
    I was trying to remove some malware from my wife's computer. In order to do so I had to restart the computer in safe mode. The problem is that she had it locked with a password and finger print access, but because she always used her finger, she never bothered learning the password. Now in safe mode, the finger print option no longer works. Because I could not access the safe mode option through the F8 during restart, I had to go to system configuration, boot, and change it to Safe. Now, I can't manage to get it back to regular mode and I am locked out of it. Can anyone help me unlock HP Windows 7 password? The laptop is an HP with Windows 7 Home Premium.

  • how can you install a file on a laptop that doesn't allow you get past the "login" screen? Except you have a solution to that, then I don't see how this solution will solve the problem...are people thinking up-side down these days?
