Windows 7 password - won't let me in

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

 

I am writing this from my daughters account and machine.

 

My Windows 7 laptop appears to have changed my password - and I have tried to start the machine in Safe Mode, but it ignores the F8 command and goes straight to the password screen.

 

Is this a virus? Any ideas please?

Thank you pramod70. I meant that as you turn on the computer, it would not accept my password on my user account. I only had one user account, mine. I did/ have not changed the password, nor has anyone else. It just would not accept my password.

 

After posting here, I continued to google and discovered I was possibly in a nasty unwelcome position - however, I kept playing and eventually went into system boot menu (F2 or F12) and asked it to boot from the hard drive (HDD). And it worked - I got in!.

 

 

So I have now created a password hint/recovery file thingy (as I should have done initially but I was not aware I had to...) and have also now disabled my password until I get to the bottom of this "issue". By the way, as I was doing this, I had to use my password, and it worked, so that proves my original password was still valid.

 

I've done a system scan with Kaspersky, and all seems good at 90"% and 19 minutes remaining.

 

Very strange. Maybe I can blame the solar flares and the earth magnetics...lol. But seriously, anyone with any ideas of what is going on here?

 

Thanks and much appreciated.

good to read you restored access without too much hassle in the end.

 

maybe it was a sticky key on the keyboard or unrecognised keystroke. if the keyboard looks dusty invest in a can of compressed air which you should be able to get from a highstreet store like staples or an electronics shop. following the instructions on the can use it to dislodge any dust, food crumbs etc that collects under the keys. no matter how careful you are it is surprising the level of debris that notebook keyboards can accumulate in their key trays.
