BACK TO FACTORY SETTINGS

Postby shells1973 » Fri Sep 16, 2011 9:18

Hi can anyone help.. I have an amilo pro laptop, well my daughter has and she decided to change the password for the administrator user and cannot remember it!!!! I have tried everything I can... Im no it expert... I can only access the basic user, which doesnt enable me to change anything... I have tried checking the bios settings no joy, Im at the end of my tether as I cannot get into the system to change the password settings, let alone try to bring it back to basics and start all over again.

I do not have any recovery discs.... its a pc given to us some time ago.

any one got any suggestions apart from throwing away!! which Im close to.

If its windows XP you can tap f8 on switch on , choose SAFE MODE from the list and then login as an admistrator , goto control panel user accounts and reset password (or remove it) if its VISTA or windows 7 you can only wipe and re-install.

If its windows 7 then you need to purchase from a reseller a fully licenced copy (comes with a 25 digit code) to install.
