Key to Windows 7 password reset problem

I have created a key to reset Windows 7 password on a USB key according to the instructions. When I tested it, the computer he labeled as being in drive F, but he gave only the insert options in the G or H drive. The only way I could make it work was to use two players to jump. Then he would see the reset key in the drive I have and I would go forward. How can I fix?

  • Envy of HP Touchsmart m6 Sleekbook Windows 8 password reset

    My friend pulled a joke on me by changing my password on my laptop.  He changed the username to a false address, so the password during extraction is impossible and if you believe that he forgot the password.  How to do a reset? In addition, this laptop has no ability to drive.  Ive been told I'll need to open the back of the computer, remove the battery of 'shows' and the RAM sticks while pressing power, then replace all.  Sounds simple, but I know very little about computers, beyond basic user software.  Thank you!

  • Password reset problem

    ORIGINAL TITLE: Problem with restore disc

    Win Home Premium 64-bit.

    The restore disc process seems to be asking me to insert my current restore disk, which obviouly I didn't so I need a new drive to restore in the first place.  Can someone help me by the window / this?

    Yes; you don't specify your question.

    It is called password reset; No restoration.

    And do you it before you lose or forget your password; not after the password is lost.

    And Microsoft prohibited any assistance being given in these Forums to bypass or "crack" passwords lost or forgotten.

    See you soon.

  • Windows 7 password reset notification

    I'm running Windows 7 (32-bit) Home Premium SP1 in a Virtual Machine on my Apple iMac using the Parallels software.  When I open Windows 7 recently I was presented with a window saying my password needs to be reset.  When I installed Windows 7 in April, I've never set up a password since I am the only user of this machine.  On my Windows PC under Windows 7, I do not have a password configured and have never seen such notification since installing Windows 7 years.

    On this window reset I have anything that either are not entered and just clicked OK & he disappeared.
    Any idea that what makes it to appear in the first place?  BTW I didn't put a password on the side of Mac of the iMac.
    Thanks, JIm

    Thanks Oberwald.  After pressing Enter, he says "the command completed successfully."

    Not that I want to become a Star of MS community, but what this command say Windows 7 for 'not doing '?  Before that your suggestion of the person I spoke with never heard of a password reset notification for Windows 7.  Thank you.  Jim

    Steps 1 to 4 of the procedure in my previous response got you on the Windows Console. You can now type the command:

    NET user "user %%nom.
    The command will give you a summary of the different settings for your account, for example when you finally connected or when the password was last changed. One of the parameters said how long you are allowed to keep the same password. I think that the default time period is 2 months. The command I gave you removed entirely, the time-out for all accounts. If it worked for you, then you must mark my answer as an "answer" to your question.
    If anyone don't that you talked had already heard about the password timeout mechanism then you probably speak to system administrators.

    The problem nutrient to connect to the database?

    For you, this is the connection string, which I used at the top of the page. (obviuosly replace the XXXX with your own login details ie username, password and databasename liked if the server is something other than ' localhost; changing also.)

    # Connect

    mysql_connect ('localhost', 'XXXXX', 'XXXXXX') or die ("could not connect: '.") mysql_error());

    # Choose a database

    @mysql_select_db ('XXXXXXXXX') or die (' could not select database ');

  • How can I find the private forum that was set up for me about my hotmail password reset problem?

    You have found the information I sent to reset my password to be insufficient. I need to give you additional information you need, but the link you sent to your email address doesn't seem to take me anywhere where I can do.

    In addition, some of the information requested was for my credit card, but I'm using a free account and I guess I don't need to present this type of information. Is this correct?

    Hi Daniel,.

    I know not who talk you to or by what method (phone, online, email, chat,...), or how it started, but I strongly suspect that is NOT anyone of Hotmail and you should stop communicating with them and providing personal information any more than you already have and immediately delete all emails from them and who come in the future and do not go to all the links in the emails and do not open attachments to emails.  I'm almost certain it's a scam and an attempt to identity theft and possibly worse.

    Now let's awhile back and check something.  Did you password reset instructions below and receive the email them with a link to reset?  If so, this may be valid; However, if the link is not valid (or even if it is still perhaps not trust because he could easiily be redirected) and request information (enamel on their part is not ask for information but just give a link), especially as your credit card, then it is totally wrong and what I said above applies. In this case, I post on the forum and forget that normal reset method and get help directly from them where you KNOW who you're talking about.

    If they want to use the e-mail process (or need to because you have not provided no alternative), then ask you provide the link they will send (I guess they won't) or to include a way to check for certain that the email is from them given the circumstances - perhaps including a few special as coded message "this message is verified to support Hotmail with the code we agreed on Au93kgke9le ' or some thing like this and ask them to send you a private link response so you can send private code and not in the open air in the thread.

    To resolve this issue, go to for support of Hotmail.  For assistance with your password, post your question in the following forum:   Here is specific information on the password reset: but be careful if the messaging process is used and do as shown above, or make them use another method (or offer a safe alternative).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • MySQL root password reset problem


    As the title suggests, I forgot my MySQL root password (and where I wrote it down) and have done endless research (Google, MySQL site and forum, etc), tried the resolutions, but did not have luck by resetting the password.

    I tried the instructions on the MySQL site, but when I did, I got this:


    I tried to remove and restart the bodies, as well as uninstalling MySQL, by restarting and then reinstall; always without success.

    I am running PHP (5.3.0) and MySQL (5.1.37) on Windows Vista.

    I appreciate any help anyone can offer.

    Thank you


    The easiest way I know to deal with this situation on Windows is to uninstall MySQL. Doing so should leave intact in the data folder databases, although you might want to first copy the contents of the data folder to another location.

    Inside the data folder is another folder called mysql. Remove and then reinstall MySQL. Then you should be able to put in place a new root password.

  • Windows vista password reset

    I'm changing my password of windows; I forgot it; and I don't have a backup to enter into the system; I am able to connect using my fingerprint, but sometimes it's problematic way takes too long; is it possible to recover or change my password with to know the old password?


    You can use fingerprint access to another admin will use to modify your original
    account password? Fingerprint access give you admin rights, if so you can change your
    with its access password.

    Another possibility:

    Try this - use the hidden administrator account to lower your account down. APPLY/OK then go back
    and hand it to the administrator. Often, this clears the corruption. To change your password.

    Make another account ADMINISTRATOR FULL with your password and use it to fix the others if necessary. (just for repair
    with, do not use regular account, a safety valve)

    DO NOT LEAVE THE ENABLED LSA OR USE DAILY. If it corrupts you are toast!
