Windows won’t accept my password even if I have typed in a correct password? If your account are not locked out or disabled, it’s likely that you have turned on the NumLock feature that many laptops have. After enabling the NumLock feature, you’ll find a strange problem and you can’t type normal anymore. For example, when you type in “hey, how’s it going”, your computer would type “123456… etc.”. If you later try to type something else it will continue in sequence from before, eg: “7890123… etc”

The NumLock feature is used to convert part of the main keyboard to act as a (slightly skewed) numeric keypad rather than letters. NumLock is rarely used for its original purpose, and ends up confusing the user if it has for some reason been activated without the user being aware of this. This can be more of an issue on most laptop computers, since activating the NumLock function typically requires use of the Fn key and if a user accidentally switches it on they may have no idea how to switch it off.

How to Turn Off NumLock Feature?

Find the NumLock key and press it to reverse things and set it back to normal. On my Dell it’s Fn + F4, on my Compaq it’s Fn + ScrLk. It’s different on every make and model. Based on your keyboard you can get original settings of your keyboard in following ways.

  • Fn + F11
  • Shift + Num Lock
  • Fn + Num Lock
  • Fn + F11 + Scroll lock
  • Fn + F8 (on HP laptop)
  • Ctrl + F11
  • Fn + Shift + Num Lock

Some keyboards have and don’t have the Num Lock key. If there is then just press the Num Lock or NmLk key. Sometimes you have to hold the Fn button with the Num Lock key. If there is no Num Lock key on your keyboard then just follow these steps: START -> ALL PROGRAMS -> ACCESSORIES -> ACCESSIBILITY -> ON-SCREEN KEYBOARD -> NLK.

Find the correct key combination on your laptop and your problem should be solved. If you still can’t log in to Windows, you can use the Reset Windows Password utility to remove your administrator/user password so you can then log on your computer without typing a password. After getting into Windows, you can turn off NumLock feature easier.

Lost or forgot Windows 8 password? Is there a Windows password reset bootdisk which supports UEFI-based computer? UEFI is intended to replace the traditional BIOS. Most Lenovo, HP, and Dell computers which come with Windows 8 pre-installed ship with UEFI. UEFI has its own benefits over traditional BIOS, but it will also raise new problem that many Live CDs are unable to boot on UEFI-based computers.

Fortunately the vast majority of UEFI motherboards support BIOS/legacy-mode booting. So we can still switch the boot mode from UEFI to Legacy in order to fix compatibility problem. Here I’ll demonstrate how to reset lost Windows 8 password on a UEFI-based Dell Inspiron 660 desktop computer.

Step 1: Create a Bootable Windows Password Reset USB Drive

First, downloaded the Zip archive of Reset Windows Password utility on to an alternative PC which you have full access. Right-click on the download file and then choose Extract All from the context menu. After extracting, you’ll find the ResetWindowsPwd.iso file. Just copy this file to a CD or USB and it won’t work! You need to burn it to USB flash drive using ISO2Disc tool.

Step 2: Boot Your Dell PC from Windows Password Reset USB Drive

To get your UEFI-based computer to boot from Windows password reset bootdisk, you’ll need to switch the boot mode from UEFI to Legacy and then disable the Secure Boot option.

Insert the Windows password reset USB drive into your Dell PC. Power on the computer and press the F12 key to bring up the Boot Menu when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information. If using other models of Dell computer, try to press F2 or Del key instead of the F12 key.

 Use the arrow key to choose the Change Boot Mode setting option and press Enter key. On the next screen, choose the Legacy Boot Mode, Secure Boot Off option. Press Enter key and save your changes.

 Once your computer restarts, press F12 to bring up the Boot Menu again. This time you’ll see your USB flash drive show up in the boot list.

 Just choose the USB flash drive and press Enter. The computer will boot off the USB flash drive immediately.

Step 3: Reset Forgotten Windows 8 Administrator Password

After you’ve booted from the Windows password reset USB drive, the Reset Windows Password program will launch automatically. The program will also display a list of user accounts existing in your Windows SAM registry hive. If you’re using a dual/multi-boot computer, just select the one for your Windows 8 installation.

Next choose the administrator account and click Reset Password button. It will remove/unlock your forgotten administrator password immediately.

Restart your Dell PC and restore the boot mode back to UEFI. You can log in to your Windows 8 administrator account with a blank password.

Conclusion

Reset Windows Password utility also work with other brands of Windows 8 computer. If you don’t know how to disable UEFI mode on your own computer, please refer to this guide: How to Set Windows 8 PC to Boot with Legacy BIOS Mode Instead of UEFI Mode

Administrator account disabled, can’t log in to my PC…HELP!!! When I restarted my computer came to the welcome screen my profile admin logon has disappeared so I press ctrl+alt+delete and the login box appeared. I type the administrator account and password. Then it says “Your account has been disabled. Please see system administrator”. Help! I need to access my account again, and I do not want to loose any files.

If your administrator account gets disabled and can’t login using a secondary administrative account, you will lose access to your Windows system. Even if you boot up in Safe Mode, it won’t let you login. In this guide we’ll show you how to fix the problem by enabling the disabled administrator account through a Windows password reset bootdisk.

How to Enable A Disabled Administrator Account in Windows 8/7/Vista/XP?

First, you need an alternative computer with CD burner and a blank CD in order to create a bootable Windows password reset disk. To do that download the Reset Windows Password utility, unzip the download file and you’ll get an ISO image: ResetWindowsPwd.iso. Burn the ISO image to a CD using your favorite CD burning software. If you don’t have a CD burner, let’s say you have a netbook PC, then you can use a USB flash drive instead and burn the ISO image file to USB using ISO2Disc.

After you have created a bootable Windows password reset disk as mentioned above, go and boot the PC you want to enable the administrator account with this reset disk. Once the PC starts to boot, it will load the operating system inside the password reset disk and launch the Reset Windows Password program.

Choose the administrator account and then click on Reset Password button. It will remove your administrator password and enable the administrator account if it is already disabled.

Now take out the password reset disk and restart the computer. The administrator account will come up on the windows log-in screen again and you can login using a blank password. Done!
