How to get around a password on a laptop?


Recommended Posts

I've got a laptop that was left by a guest ages ago now and I have tried to contact them, no luck

 

Anyway my question is it's password protected so basically it cannot be used,

Is there anyway around it? do I have to uninstall everything and re format the laptop

I know some of you guys are experts on here maybe there is a simple way,

Have a nice day

That's possibly open to debate

Its OK, you can say porn websites , we are all adults here 

Yeah, but it may have private info on it belonging to the owner of the laptop which should stay private.   Could buy a 2.5 inch harddisk for 400 baht, hardly a big expense and the new posses

Thanks guys, so I download anyone of them programs on to my desktop computer and then transfer to a USB then put the USB in to the laptop then fire away? sorry never had to do this before

Thats basically it, the USB needs to be bookable (also tools available to do this). You may have to play around with F keys while booting (there is often a quick message on screen when you turn on, "press Fxx to change boot device") to tell the comp to boot from the USB and not the normal hardrive.

I had same problem some time ago, when all of a sudden, my laptop would not accept the right password.   Took it to my local computer man and he released it, 300 Bhat.  

Sounds about right for me 555

It didn't seem a big job and he wasn't surprised at the problem. Only issue now is that I can't have a password on the laptop, but that doesn't concern me at all. 

It wouldn't bother me I dont use laptops my wife wanted to use it, we have a desktop at home and I have a Samsung tablet

Ah  yes, bit off topic, but do you like the Samsung Tablet and what is its series?  Reason I ask is that I need to replace a broken iPad and I am looking at just that make.  4,600 Baht I think I was told?  Is it good? Need it mainly for e mail and Netflix

I used to have a ipad mini it got to the point where you could not download app's as they were not compatible it was getting old anyway I think I was one of the first people in Thailand to get one mine came from England and they didnt sell the mini here.

Im not an expert but the Samsung is great I would say more flexible I use it for football MUTV, Netflix and emails 

SAMSUNG Galaxy TabA 10.5 32 GB You can put a sim card in to use as a phone
