Windows 7: Windows password reset

Windows password reset


first of all, before you all get angry with me for not using the search: it is NOT about resetting the account password, it's about the password which I put on when I bought the laptop while it asked about the settings and stuff. As far as I understand it has nothing to do with the user accounts. It asks the password when logged out and I want to make new "fingerprint account" for example.

OT: What's normal CPU temp while playing some awesome 3D game?

OT2: I keep losing internet all the time, usually for 10-15min, it goes showing only the yellow triangle at tray sometimes even red X. I use linksys wifi router. There's another HP laptop in the house and when I connected my laptop it too lost connection. When the connection comes back, it usually shows everything's fine at tray, then it shows the yellow triangle again for a minute or so and before it could change I've got connection again.

The first password you enter will be the administrator password

If you temps start climbing above 140 degrees F, you could have real problems.

If both notebooks lose connection, the problem is external. It may be your distance to the router, you may need to get an extender for the router, your router may be intermittently failing, your ISP could be having problems. Did this problem suddenly crop up, or was it this way all the time?

The administrator password won't work. Right now the only place I need the password is in DigitalPersona when I'm in another account to which I want to put my fingerprint as a login.

The I've got a program called CoreTemp in which I set the "go to sleep" temperature 70 C which is 158 F and when I play Assassin's Creed it often goes to sleep. I've got the laptop off the table on 3 cd towers. When I play I can clearly feel it getting hotter when I touch the bottom left corner. Right now when I've got some small programs open. The temperature is 40-41 C (104 F).

It looks like that both computers can't be online at the same time. When both want to use the net, neither can. And when one is offline then there are the problems I decribed before. This problem came up kinda suddenly, I mean before wifi connection was lost from time to time with the other laptop but not like this. Two laptops have been in this network before, both working.
