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.)

Hello perkymang, We are sorry as there is no master password or generator for EliteBooks or ProBooks. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again !! **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

A:Forgot my BIOS administrator password

Hi, Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc. The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly. Regards, DP-K

Hi, If you're running Windows 8 or 8.1, see the Microsoft page on the following link. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-8/forgot-windows-password Note:  If you have a Local Account, try the free application Here. If you're running Windows 7, Vista etc, try the following. Using another PC, download the application on the following link and save it to your Downloads folder. PC Login Now When the download has completed, open your Downloads folder and double-click the installer - this will result in another file appearing which is the disc image ( .ISO ) that you need to burn to a blank CD. You will now need to use an application such as ImgBurn to burn this ISO correctly to a blank CD - a guide on using ImgBurn to write an ISO to a disc is Here. When the disc has been created, shutdown the PC you can't log-in on, tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start-up Menu, insert the CD, select Boot Options ( usually f9 ), use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and hit enter - you may also have to 'Press any key' to boot from the CD if asked. Follow the instructions on the guide Here to remove the current password. Regards, DP-K

I have Windows 10 Pro - Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393

I somehow lost my Administrator privilege and now can't run numerous programs because I forgot my Administrator password.

On the login screen both my Account and the Administrator Account is displayed. When I click on Administrator, the Administrator login screen appears and the tiny circle goes round and round for approx. 2 minutes and then a black screen appears. After about 20 minutes the screen was still black so I gave up. I had to switch users (to my account) by clicking "Switch User" via Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

I've made sure the Administrator account is enabled as per instructions that I had received - i.e. checking that a registry key value is "10" not "11". See attached.

I am currently using my Microsoft Account for sign-in. I doubt this makes any difference.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to Augie 65 for her prompt answer to my question. I visited the site and learned I must have a working floppy drive ( I don't) or cd burner capabilities (I don't). My problem remains that I can't remember the administrator password and therefore cannot install new software, among other things. Is it possible to delete the operating system and reinstall it again, thereby being able to create a new administrator password? Any other options that don't call for me to use a floppy or a cd burner would also be appreciated. Thanks
 

A:forgot administrator password II

If you have everything you need for a reinstall, that would be one possibility. Just make sure you have all the necessary drivers for all your hardware. Too often people blindly recommend doing a format and reinstall and need to make sure all that is in place first.

You can also backup or document any important data or things like e-mail configurations before you do as well.

Also, if you want, I would be glad to mail you a bootable CD with the software to reset your password. Send me an e-mail if you like.

My administrator password seems to have either dropped down a rabbit hole, or I've forgotten it. I use it to logon to my pc for everything ,I know I should have two accounts, one user and one administrator. If I ever get back into my pc I'm definitely going to paint the administrator password on the wall in front of me. All the Windows 7 tutorials that I'm seen so far have to do with finding/restoring/resetting a "user" password, not the administrator. So does anyone out there have a fix that will allow me to get to my desktop?

I have Windows 7 Home Premium, 32bit. I used System Tools and did a Disk Cleanup. However, when I tried to boot it up after the process, it asked for my Administrator Password. Why we have to have an Administrator User Account, I have no idea--especially when you can't get into it. I don't remember putting a password on for the Administrator Account. I have another User Account that I can get on the computer with, but I have pictures, videos, documents, etc. on the Administrator Account that I now cannot recover. Is there anything I can do, other than reinstalling Windows?

Hey my name is Mitchell Speiser,

I recently just moved and decided to get my computer out from the storage unit; I'll remind you it's been sitting there for a very long time. Whenever I brought it home, I set it all up nice and neat on my desk in my room. Whenever I turned it on, I needed an Administrator password to access my main account.
So I couldn't remember it, thus this is where my problems began.
I logged into a non-administrative account, my personal one 'Mitch,' and looked up some support numbers and information on how to fix this.
Here's a list of my problems that have totaled since the research:
-I do not have my disc to uninstall and reinstall Vista Home Premium 32bit.
-I cannot afford some company to come in for $129.99 dollars to solve this.
-I've uncovered a Spyware virus that's blocking some important ports.
-I can't run Administrator cmd. because it requires the Administrative password.
-I cannot download a 'burner' to fix my password because I need the Administrative password to launch the Wizard.
-I can't locate where to fix by 'rebooting' my computer. (said by some sources)

So I was wondering if anyone could help? The Microsoft support line couldn't, neither could Dell support. I did talk to some technicians via chat123.us and they 'saw' the problem but wanted to charge me an outrages amount just to fix it.
If you have some tips, videos, or whatnot, please comment below and help me; I'd appreciate it!

OK, this is XP professional I believe. This is not my computer, it's the computer at my job. We wanted to install a printer to the PC but they got a very basic crappy computer with limited options. What I mean is, You can't run IE you can't run command prompt, you can't view "My Computer", you can't do anything but view the damn trainee program.
And when I try to install the Printer installation CD, it just tells me I need to log in as an administrator to do so.

So what I did was run the computer in safe mode and command prompt. There it asks me to login with the administrator name and password. But my managers forgot their password lol.

So I wanted to know if theres a program or something that I can slap on a CD and bring it to work so that I can reset the password. Also, formatting is not an option. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance
