    There are utilities such as Offline NT that can reset passwords. Perhaps it would be easier to just boot into Recovery and reinstall Windows if you don't have any files not to lose you. Recovery will reset the laptop to factory condition. To start the recovery, start typing or by pressing the F11 key immediately after switching on the laptop.

    Thanks for sharing this, but we always talk about password of Toshiba, it won't and I think this might be a bit confusing, it is of a workaround for the windows user account password.

    As much as I know there is no password defined by Toshiba.

    The user can define the user account password in windows if necessary so that this workaround solution describes how to remove a user account Windows password that is common to all computers with the preinstalled Windows operating system.

    However, thanks for posting ;)

  • Reset the password of Windows on a NB250

    Is there a solution to the following problem?

    My children has changed and I forgot the password of windows for our NB250. I have a Bios password which comes first. We need to use this computer for school, so your help is very appreciated. Questions:

    I do not have the windows password
    There is not an administrator account
    We have Windows 7 starter system
    I tried pressing zero and hold after you type in the Bios pw - nothing
    I don't have a flash drive or another password reset file

    Any ideas?

    Stand by. You mean BIOS password and Windows user account.
    I guess that the BIOS password is known to you and you can start the laptop correctly, but you cannot log on Windows by using the Windows user account.

    Is this correct?

    In case you want to reset the password of Windows I recommend to check this page from Microsoft:
    [What to do if you forget your Windows password | http://windows.microsoft.com/is-is/windows-vista/what-to-do-if-you-forget-your-windows-password]

    + If you forget the administrator password and you do not have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you will not be able to reset the password.

  • Reset password in Windows 7

    Wih Compaq Windows 7 on it.

    I bought a PC from a friend of mind. It had a password on it, and I need to reset the password 'pass '.

    He left the city. I can't get my hands on him. So, how do I reset it. Help

    You list the Compaq model you have it please?

    There are all kinds of tutorials on how to do this if you Google it.

    The best way to reset your password for Windows user at this point is to create whats called Live CD (or USB).

    You start in this Live CD and follow the instructions to reset the password.

    You will need access to another computer and download the software to create the Live CD.

    There are several Linux-based programs that do this, but I like Lazesoft.
    I learned of the Lazesoft Recover My Password by looking at Britec09 which makes tech YouTube tutorials.

    Lazesoft makes the process easy and you don't need to know the command prompts.
    The software downloaded will be also set up and install on a CD or a usb key without installing anything extra. Just follow the guests. The best part is a free edition just to remove the password.

    Go to this link to read about it.
    How to burn Windows password recovery CD.
    How to reset your forgotten password.

    Not knowing what computer you have, I assumed that touch the key F9 to start, you will have to boot selection screen to boot from your new Live CD or USB.

  • IIS on Windows Server 2012 R2 8.5 sends error 401.2 when change password Administrator windows local, 500 errors

    IIS on Windows Server 2012 R2 8.5 sends error 401.2 when change password Administrator windows local, 500 errors

    This particular configuration is with Coldfusion 11. There is no errors in newspapers and the w3 service still works as are application pools. All websites and app pools run with transmission of authentication request.

    ColdFusion does not work with windows authentication and may be enforced as if reconfigured integrated instance to do this, if this isn't a matter of colfusion.

    Here is what I tried:

    1 I created a new user account with admin rights and disconnected and logged in as them and then make changes to the password on the server, and that didn't make a difference.
    2. I checked that all Web sites using the request pass through authentication.
    3. I checked that the application pool is also using the application-pass-through authentication.
    4. I looked to find errors in which case newspapers but don't see anything there either
    5. I also searched a failure in coldfusion logs and saw no more relevant here either, but I got colfusion running without IIS in any case.
    6. search of the roots of web for coded passwords hard and found nothing.

    If you have any ideas or any ideas let me know.

    I forgot my password of windows on a hp p66774y with windows 7

    Hello

    Try the following.

    Using another PC, download the app from the following link and save it in your downloads folder.

    PC login now

    Once the download is complete, open your download folder and double-click on the installer - this will result in another file, which is the disk image (.) ISO) you need to burn to a blank CD.

    Now, you will need to use an app like ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly on a blank CD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write that an ISO on a disc is here.

    When the disk has been created, shut down the PC you can not log on, press the ESC key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start Menu, insert the CD, select Boot Options (usually f9), use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and press enter - peut also have you to "Press any key" to boot from the CD if asked to.

    Follow the instructions on the guide here to remove the current password.

    Kind regards

  • Creating a password for Windows XP access code?

    Where can I find the table of contents to find the Tools window?

    Hi Steve,.

    There is no tools window to do this.  As say you exactly, this is done in different ways:

    If you mean a normal user logon password where you do not have one before, see the following: http://windowspassword.org/xp/how-to-create-a-logon-password-on-windows-xp/.

    If you mean an administrator password, until everyone can use the system, see the following: http://www.ehow.com/how_5962319_do-welcome-screen-windows-xp_.html

    If you mean to allow the use of passwords to start XP, see the following: http://www.ehow.com/how_8187133_password-protect-computer-windows-xp.html.

    If you mean how to activate the user passwords to logon for all users, see the following: http://www.ehow.com/how_6803021_stop-xp-logging-start_up.html

    If you mean a boot password, power that precedes the logon passwords user (for protection), see the following: http://www.ehow.com/how_8198605_put-poweron-password-computer-xp.html.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Carol_971,

    1. Did you the latest changes on the computer?
    2. You have security software installed on the computer?

    Method 1
