Prior to losing your password, had you created a password ***** usb or cd?

if not, then you cannot use that option to easily reset your windows 7 computer. Question, when you start the computer is your user account the only one it shows you that you can click and enter a password *****? Are there any other use accounts showing?

I will be moving in a month and will no longer be using this computer. I will buying a laptop.
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

Lets try this. Shut down the computer completely.

Then, press power to start the computer and immediately start tapping the F8 key..

On the black screen, advanced boot options men. Choose safe mode.

Now, when it shows the sign in page does it now show more then just your one user account?

Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

My apologies for the delay.. When you said "yes" can you please explain.. What happens when you tap f8 and choose safe mode ?

How many accounts do you see when you choose safe mode?

My life is on this computer do you think you can get me back in please
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

I can get you back in. The question is, what method is going to work for us.

Now, when you say it all went by too fast.. what went by too fast? The black page with the choices of safe m ode?

Or, did you use your keyboard arrows and enter key to select safe mode?

The only way I can help you is if you get very specific, as you are my eyes and ears in this operation.

It sounds like you dont have windows 7..

Did you upgrade to windows 8 or 10 at some point?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Can you do the trouble shoot
No I have a lap to but it is a 10
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It is not really set up yet
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

lets focus on the computer that you cant get into due to the password.

Do you know if its a windows 7, windows 8, or windows 10?

This is very important, as each version of windows has almost entirely different password ***** steps..

Diffently a 7
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Someone has hacked into my computer do you think
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

Allright.. is it a dell, Asus, HP, etc?

This is important as we will need to change the boot order, so we can boot from a password ***** disk.

Also, we will either need to use another computer to create the disk, or you will need to order a pre made password ***** key online.. Such as this, http://amzn.to/2cO2mhx

Now, we can create something like that using another computer, but you need either a spare usb stick, or a spare CD. And then we of course have to download the program, properly burn it to the usb and then go from there.

I don't have another computer that I can make a disk on.
If I get someone to get my new laptop set up I can use that.
But he is working, a neighbor
Of mine
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

This link shows us how to change the boot order.. http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00364979

Once we have the boot order changed, we can then boot from a cd, or from a usb stick like the one above.

You mentioned you have a second computer, would you like to use that to try and make a reset key? Or would you prefer to purchase a pre made password ***** key, such as this? http://amzn.to/2cO2mhx

Give do have the other computer and I have a cd
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

Or, when you say the windows 10 computer isnt set up. All we should have to do is turn it on.

And then when it asks set a computer name, and it may also ask you to create a microsoft account ( if you dont have one already )

Once your at the windows desktop, youd just need to connect to wireless, and then you would be online so we could download the needed files to create a disk.

If you would like to go through the setup process together, turn it on and if you get stuck at any point let me know exactly what screen you are on and what the computer is asking for.

I just go on the link you told me
Tech Support Specialist: Dustin, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

If you only wanted to order the password ***** key, the link I sent you would be fine.

If we want to create a password ***** key together, then we need to get your windows 10 machine up and working.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
