Forgot password on New Intel compute stick M3

I have just purchase a new compute stick Intel m3.

The initial setup was done without the flash drive.

Now I have forgotten the password.

i can only see my login, no other login, no admin.

In a restart F8 does not work.

How do I reset my password.

Thank you

Regards Logan

You've forgotten your Windows login prompt, correct? There's nothing we can do about that at the hardware level. When you hit F8 in response to the ICS splash screen, do you see "Please Wait" displayed in large letters? If so, you are going to end up in the right dialog to do a full reset of Windows. Click on the "Reset This PC" button and it will walk you through the Windows reset process. If you are too late hitting the key adn it (just) take you to the login prompt, do a shutdown-restart and try again. When screen goes black, start hitting the F8 key over and over until you see the "Please Wait" message displayed...

Hope this helps,

Hello logankathirasoo@gmail.com,

 

 

 

N. Scott Pearson is right, if you forgot your Windows password that is something we cannot recover for you.

 

 

Reset the system to factory defaults:
  1. Remove any SD card, if installed.
  2. Press F8 when you see this prompt during boot: F8 to Activate Windows 8.1* Windows 10 * Recovery Mode.
  3. Select Troubleshoot.
  4. Select Reset your PC, then select Next.
  5. Select Just remove my files.
  6. Select Reset to start the restore process.

 

See if those steps work for you if not, try contacting Microsoft, they might be able to help you.

 

 

 

Regards,

 

 

 

Ivan
