GreetingsThere's a bunch of different ways to reset a user password ***** Windows 7. I'll start wih the easiest.1) Start the computer in safe mode with command prompt. To do this, restart the computer, BEFORE windows begins to load, start tapping the F8 key. When timed correctly, you'll be offered a set of startup options. Use the arrow keys to highlight Windows safe mode with command prompt. Then hit enter.Once it starts up, it'll present you with an old style dos prompt. Type this:net user administrator /active:yes
Then hit enter.The spaces are necessary. You should get a successful message after.Restart the computer, and the administrator account should be enabled (default windows account with no password). From there, you can navigate to the user accounts in Control Panel and then reset your primary password ***** remove it.If you need clarification on any of the above steps let me know.If you get stuck anywhere or can't get it to work, reply to me and we'll move on to the next step. There's about 4 different ways to do this, but this is by far the easiest/fastest.
sorry cannot get past the password ***** after pressing F2 (only a long continuous beeping sound)
Could it be a BIOS password ***** when we switch it back on we get "a disk error has occurred" Press Ctrl/Alt/Del
