Changing admin password without usb/cd capabilities

  1. Hi,

    I have had the issue in the past of people changing my computers passwords and I simply boot from my usb or cd and reset the password. However somehow the password was changed on my LG Flatron N1941w and it has neither a usb port or a cd drive. The only thing I can think of at this point is converting the mouse/keyboard port to usb and booting from that...but there must be a simpler way? any input appreciated

    Uh, the LG Flatron N1941w is a thin client of sorts? Therefore, you need to speak to your network admin to get your password reset.

    Good catch; I should have googled the make/model first.
