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.)

Hey guys (and girls), this is my first time posting on this forum, so I would like to apologize in advance if I'm in the wrong spot.
Anyways, I opened up my laptop (HP Pavilion G series/Win7) earlier today and it stated that I have had my password too long and need to reset it. The problem is, I do not remember my old password, so I am in a bind.
I keep all of my important stuff on my desktop, so I don't mind factory resetting this laptop. I usually do not have to resort to formus like this one, as I am able to correct any technical issues myself by just using google or other similar means. I tried doing a google search on how to factory reset it without the password and they are all telling me to hit F11 upon start up and select "system recovery", but when I hit the F11, it's asking me if I want to log on through safe mode. I tried doing that to see if I could factory reset it when I was in the computer, but even that route is asking me for a password.
So, if anyone can help me fix this issue, preferably not through any kind of reset, that would be great, but if that's my only option, well then, it looks like that is my only option.
Once again, it's an HP Pavilion G series ran with Windows 7.
Thank you for your time and I appreciate the help!

Guess it depends on what you mean by "administrator part." If you mean that you lost your BIOS password you're pretty much out of luck. But since you mention your "guest account" I'm guessing that you mean you can boot Windows. So, boot to the Recovery partition or to your Recovery DVDs or CDs to do the "recover/reset/restore to factory defaults." You can find specifics on how to do so on the PC manufacturer's web site and/or in documentation you got with it.

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

Hi everyone. I have had an Hp G60t-200 laptop for about 5 years and I want to do a factory reset. I have way too much stuff on it and would like to just start out with a clean slate again.

There is a problem. It orgionally came with windows vista pre-installed without the OS disks. I got the Windows 7 upgrade disks when windows 7 came out. I do not have the full version of Windows 7 OS nor do I have the Vista disks, which I don't think would be much help anyway.

My version of Windows is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit Service Pack 1. I do have all the partitions in the recovery drive, but I'm not sure if they can help. Also I never made a system image at the time, because I was like 10. I do have a system recovery disk, but so far they have been no help. I do not want to keep any of the files and I have backed up all the important files, pictures, videos, etc...

Please help. None of the forums I have gone to had a solution. Thanks.

I reset my computer to factory defaults on my computer, because it was acting buggy, and I was afraid something horrible was going on.

I'm not a computer genius, heck.. I can't even say I'm close to it.

But I knew that the reset would help me get my computer back to the way I had it when I got it in February, and I can start from there once more.

Now.. with that being said.
Every time I log on now to the computer, it acts as if I'm hitting F10 still, and giving me three options.. The Factory Reset, the Total Reset (which is meant to be used when installing a new verision of Windows), and then "Q" which makes me exit.

After the reset, everything seemed to straighten itself out, which is the bonus for me. I know now that if I do something horrible to this computer, it'll fix itself. Other than for that.. I'm at a loss.

Now the question is, what do I do to get rid of this screen?
I'm running on Windows XP SP2.
