Windows 7: Cannot start windows- no password

Cannot start windows- no password

It seems that I was not paying attention when setting up Win 7 for the first time on my new computer. After a reboot it is asking me for my PW. I don't have a clue. Other sources say I now need to reinstall Win 7 but no disk comes with the unit (lenovo). Any ideas? Thanx. Alan

Hello Alan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

One of the options in the tutorial below should allow you to be able to reset the password.

Hope this helps,

Have you tried leaving the password field empty and see what happens?

Shawn, thanks so much, especially the speed of respons. Not quite what I needed but it led me to Levono's solution. If I may impose, what if I don't want a PW at all? How do I do that?

its generally NOT recommended to have no password, what can happen is, if you get a virus some particularly nasty ones can make a password and lock you out your system.
