Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

The factory fall back is likely your only option. There is no way that anyone but you would know what password you used.

 

Maybe you could stop and think of what was on your mind at the time you came up with the password for a hint at what it might be.

 

Good luck

B&N customer support will likely tell you the same thing.  It's what they've told everyone I've seen who has had this issue, I believe.  You can try calling them at 1-800-THE-BOOK, option 2.

 

However, you may have better luck posting this in the NOOKcolor technical Support area.  This is for the original e-Ink NOOK, and most people here don't have a NOOKcolor.

Great news!  Now before you forget, be sure to make a note of it and put it someplace where you can find it. :smileywink:

When you make your password, write it down on adhesive tape and paste it on your screen, that way you won't forget :smileyhappy:

I know what you have to do It happened to me literally two seconds ago. You must turn your nook fully off. Once done so turn it back on and hold down the home button or the N at the same time you hold down the power button then a message will come up asking if you'd like to reset your nook or something along the lines of that I can only help you from there Good Luck I hope I helped
