  1. password reset


    I had been ill cancer and not used my "all in one" desktop computer for a while. A family member had been using the "visitor" account. When I went to use my personal account I typed in what I was pretty certain the password was and it is not working. I have the word correct, but possibly not the numbers. I had the Geek Squad set up my computer and had no idea or understanding of the necessity of making a password reset disc. I called the Geek Squad and am told that I have to contact Microsoft. So here I am. I have no way of getting into my personal information bc I cannot reset my password. I am worried bc I am not super good at tech issues. Thanks for any help. Karen

    :)

    • If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:
      • If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.
      • If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. ...
      • If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".
