How to Unlock an Asus Eee PC

by Steven Diggs, Jr.

Asus Eee PCs run on the Windows XP SP2 operating system. Accounts in Windows XP SP2 can easily be password-protected, but the same password can just as easily be forgotten. At moments like this, you'll wish you had chosen a password that is both secure and easy to remember, or kept a record of it in a private place. The quickest way to get back on the computer is to seek out someone with an administrator account on the computer.

Press "Control" + "Alt" + "Delete" at the same time on the locked screen. Select "Switch User." Remember, only an administrator account registered on this computer can unlock the computer.

Type in "administrator" in the user name box.

Type the password that corresponds to the administrator user name in the password box .

Click "OK." The Asus Eee PC is unlocked.

Warning

  • close Keep your important files in more than one place because you never know when you won't be able to access your computer.
