I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi there and welcome to TSF.

I'm afraid we can't help you to circumvent restrictions on a computer, as whilst your query may be genuine, we have no way of knowing. I suggest you get in touch with the school that the computer came from and get them to format it.

Hi,

I recently purchased a used HP Pavilion on craiglist. Unfortunately, the computer is full of bugs and viruses (ie pop ups and virus warning messages). In order to to clean the PC (ie remove files or download malware protection) I need admin username and password, but I don't have that and the gentleman I purchased the computer from does not know either.

Ive attempted to research methods to reset the computer and all methods have failed because I need admin credentials to reset the computer.

Is there a way to reset and erased the computer to its original factory settings? I also read I may need to buy a CD or download a rest to a cd or usb on another computer. Is there a reputable website to reset or refresh that is cheap or preferably free

A:Can someone please help me because i dont know the bios pass...

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. If you Contact HP Business support they should be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Regards, DP-K

A:Win 8 start but dont pass logo screen

If I had to make a guess, Id say you are looking at a hardware issue. By the way it sounds probably a failed hard drive.

If you have another computer that is functional or know someone that does, ask them to download and burn Falcon Four Ultimate Boot CD to a CD/DVD for you. This has a handful of hard drive testing utilities on it which will help you identify it as a failed hard drive.

Otherwise I would say RAM issue. That same boot CD contains MemTest86. If the hard drive scans come up clean, run MemTest86 for at least 8 passes for conclusive results.

I have recently ran into an issue that is probably not too uncommon but I am having issues with. I currently forgot my password for my admin account on my laptop that runs on windows vista, i have looked up ways to bypass this issue and have ran into some issues along the way so first i looked up a password rescuer online but figured that i would have a hard time running it because my pass is more than 14 characters long. i also tried to run a system restore on it for an earlier time before i changed the password that i have currently forgot but an error keeps coming up due to a corrupted file on my c drive. all i want to do is gain access to my admin account so i can back up the files that are precious to me so i can run a factory restore on my computer then have it running clean again. Anyhow, I looked online for some other ideas and im currently reading and looking into ways to bypass the admin account by using a sticky keys trick the windows vista password or offline enabling the built in admin account on vista. The trouble that I am having is that i made it to where my files were viewable and accessable only through the admin account, does that mean they are encrypted? also would doing these tricks possibly delete my files or make them unaccessable? i also dont have a vista or windows setup dvd could i possibly do anything to bypass the admin account to keep my files, without the dvd? thank you so much, i know im in one heck of a pickle any help is very appreciated.

OK guys, here's one for ya and so far none of my techie friends have come up with a solution.

I have an Acer 2012 WLMi laptop that unfortunately took a drink across its keyboard. I have purchased a new keyboard but unfortunately it does not work, all I can assume is that I fried the bridge.

I am unable to plug in a USB keyboard because I don't have administrator privileges, when I try, I am asked for the admin name & password, neither of which I can remember.

When I boot up, I get to the welcome screen and because I can't use the keyboard to log in as myself, I have to log in as a guest. When I then try to plug in any USB hardware, I'm told I don't have sufficient privileges.

I can't help but think that knowing Microsoft's cavalier attitude towards security, that there must be a way around this. Unfortunately neither my techie frinds nor I have found it yet.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated but please bear in mind: I CANNOT USE A KEYBOARD!

Thanks in anticipation.

A:Admin pass bypass - no keyboard available

Unfortunately we cannot assist you with bypassing the administrator password. The username would be administrator (unless you changed it) and the password defaults to no password unless you set one when windows was installed.

I've never been prompted for username/password when installing a USB keyboard, just plug it in before starting your PC up and see if it works (can you get into the BIOS with the USB keyboard?)

I recently got a hand-me-down Dell 6400 Inspiron Laptop from a company I work for and unfortunately, it's inaccessible with an admininstrator password that was set by a former employee. I've made several attempts by going into "safemode", but it is still giving me the same problem only this time, it has the previous person's user name and administrator link. I tried going in without a password using the administrator icon, but it's locked also and requires a password.

It's a little difficult reaching the person who used the laptop before me because I don't have current contact information. It's been frustrating for the past two weeks but I would like to resolve my situation on my own before I suddenly have the urge to give up and take it somewhere or to someone to fix it.

Also, i cant edit permissions because I've lost admin rights. Ive tried many things including unlocking the system admin, this lets me access a few extra things like being able to use the sfc command in cmd, however, it doesn't allow me to access the C disk or change permission because it also has lost admin rights?

I'm having some issues with my upgrade to win 10.

Programs that need elevated access are now asking me for both the Sys Admin and my local admin password.

Of course, the sys admin has no password and my local admin does. So no matter what I do, I get it wrong.

Earlier today, I was trying to reset the tiles in my start menu to default.

I followed directions I found on the web, activated the sys admin account, went to the sys admin account, the users app data tabletray..... But I kept getting the error that something " was already in use" and I couldn't copy all the files.
I went ahead and pasted what I had in my local admin and standard user account.
then I disabled the sys admin account.

Now, some programs icons I installed earlier today have disappeared. I have to go to an admin account to gain access and turn them on (MSI afterburner.....). And any program that needs admin access, I'm not sure if I'm giving it access or it's just starting without admin access. Seems like the next time I re-boot or log off, I have to do it all over again.

when a program asks for elevated access, it shows sys admin account AND local admin account above the password box. Is that normal? I could have sworn it only had my local admin account listed before.

If I have to re-install, where do I get the free win10 upgrade again? are those files saved on my pc?

I did a system restore and after rebooting I used my usb which contains a media boot tool for windows 8 from the microsoft website. During the start up proceedure I went into custom installation, where you can pick which device to install windows onto. They also give a delete, format, and other options. I decided that I would format my ssd from that option and install windows. (Windows was installed here in the ssd before the system restore) However, during the installation and error occurs where it says I am missing files and windows can't be install.
*Note* I can no longer boot from that ssd anymore, every attempt brings me to a blue screen wit 3 options: Try again, start setup, and go to bios. The first two just refreshes the screen and the third sends me to bios.
What I've tried:
-Installing windows 8 to my HDD, same error.
-Refresh, doesn't work says no changes can be made.
--Reset, can't find partition.
---Advanced Troubleshoot, system repair (automatic) says starting diagnostic, and just restarts back to where I was doing nothing.
----Advanced Troubleshoot, re-image, can't find an image. Gives option to use a network or a driver installed somewhere. Can't use either.
-----Advanced Troubleshoot, UEFI firmware, takes me to my bios where I've tried to switch HDD and boot priorities, messed with things, nothing worked.
------Create a recovery disk from my laptop onto a usb via the creation program on my laptop. Afterwards, loading it into my pc and booted it. Gave me more... Read more

Afternoon,

Having recently (today) inherited my company's IT support role (Without any real training / qualifications ) I'm coming across a number of small issues, one of which is the following:

All machines at my company are independently managed by their own (local) Administrator account, across the board the Username and Pass to access the Admin account is the same... except for a single machine.

It seems this machine has a differing password to the other machines, unfortunately the previous administrator is no longer contactable, I however require access to the administrator account. To the best of my knowledge he didn't set-up a Password Reset Disk either.

I've read about various 3rd party tools which can enable the resetting of the Administrator Password but am loathe to try them without first hand confirmation of their validity etc (On my head be it and so forth)

Is there any method to determine what the Admin pass may be, or should I plump for a 3rd party tool to aid in the resetting of the pass? If so, does anyone have any suggestions for which to use?

If it makes any difference, the machines are networked to a Mac Xserve server - though as I understand it, I wont be able to access locally stored passwords through the server itself?

Many thanks for any light that can be shed upon this issue

Mike
