If you're reading this article, you've probably forgotten your administrator password on a Windows 7 ASUS laptop or desktop. After failure in attempt to type every possible password you used everywhere in log screen on Windows, it seems that the only way to go is to make a clean installation of Windows, which will erase everything (apps, data, documents...) on your ASUS machine.
Actually, there have been a lot of other ways you can try to reset the password of Windows 7 on your ASUS computer and regain access to the machine before you perform a system recovery.
- if you've created more than one accounts on your ASUS computer, and at least one of those accounts has been assigned admin privilege, then you can use that account to change your lost password from Control Panel > User Accounts and Family Safety.
- Microsoft allows you to create a Windows 7 password reset disk using the "Create a password reset disk" option in User Accounts and Family Safety. If you've lost the password to log onto Windows 7 on ASUS, you can use that disk to reset password for your account.
However, what to do if there is no another account with administrator rights on your ASUS and you don't have a password reset disk ready for Windows 7? Luckily, there still is a way to reset the password on Windows 7 if you've managed to lock yourself out of ASUS computer.

Download the program onto an accessible computer and run it. Then follow the easy steps below to reset your forgotten Windows 7 administrator or user password on ASUS desktop & laptop.
Step 1: Burn the program's ISO file to make a password reset disk
To get started, insert a blank USB flash drive or CD/ DVD disc into the computer. The program supports creating a password reset disk either on a USB device or a CD/ DVD that you then use to boot from on your locked ASUS computer. We'are using a USB drive in this example.
On the program interface, click the USB device, on the next screen click the Start burning button to begin burning the program's ISO image file to create a Windows 7 password reset disk.
Once the burning completes, remove the disk out of the computer.
Next, you will have to configure the boot order sequence in BIOS settings on your locked ASUS motherboard, so that your computer will boot from this USB drive.
Step 2: Set the boot order in BIOS to boot from the disk you just created
Insert the USB flash drive you created in step 1 into locked ASUS computer that you want to reset the lost Windows 7 password, turn on it.
When a message "Press [key] to enter BIOS" displays on the screen in the process of computer starting, quickly press the corresponding key (it should be F2, DELETE, or F10), and the computer will bring you into the BIOS screen.
Depending on your model, the older machines might also use the F1, and less commonly F10 to access BIOS.
There is a thing worth noting about this step: the message guides you to enter the BIOS may be a bit different in some computers, it may be called "Press [key] to ...run Setup", or "Press [key] to enter BIOS setup", "Press [key] to access system configuration", "Enter BIOS by pressing [key]".
After you enter the ASUS BIOS SETUP screen, you will see a set of menus containing a lot of settings for your computer's hardware, and instructions located at the bottom of the screen (some BIOS may list them on the right-hand side).
Then go to Boot > Boot Device Priority > 1st Boot Device, and select CDROM or Hard Drive, depending on the disc type you used in step 1.
Some PC manufacturers may classify USB devices as Hard Drive, while others list them as USB Removable devices. See more information at: the list of computer manufacturers with BIOS setup utility.
When you're happy with the results, press F10 to save the changes you made and exit the BIOS, your ASUS computer will restart and boot from the Windows 7 password reset USB drive now.
Step 3: Reset password in window 7 on ASUS laptop & desktop
After your ASUS machine boot from the USB drive, you should see the following screen where contains information about Windows as well as user accounts the program detects.
Next, select the Windows OS that you want to reset a password from, assuming you have more than one OS installed on your ASUS PC, then select the unavailable user account, and press Reset button to begin resetting lost Windows 7 Password on ASUS.
When the process finishes, press Reboot on the screen to let the computer restarting, Remember to remove the disk out of the machine (important!).
Now you can log into Windows 7 Asus computer with a blank password. Depending on the systems startup settings, if you have only one account in Windows, it might just load straight into Windows without a login screen.
That is all there is to it!
