Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Administrator password I am having a problem. I let someone use an older computer of mine for a little while. It is about 3 years old and has Windows XP on it. When I turn the computer on it ask for the administrator password. I don't know and neither does the one that borrowed it. I have tried turning the computer on and tapping on the F8 key as someone suggested to put it in "safe mode" but I get a screen that says: "press F1 to continue or F12 for set up utility" ok I press F12 because F1 only brings me to the same administrator password screen. When I press F12 I come to a screen which ask me for the set up password, which I don't know. What do I do? I have tried several things on this site. I have also tried every p.w. I think it might be and nothing. thanks Dawn

3. Insert the USB or DVD/CD into your locked Windows SBS, set Windows SBS boot from USB or DVD/CD.
4. Choose Windows SBS 2011 and user account, Click "Reset password", then "Reboot" computer after successfully reset password to blank
Method two: Reset Windows SBS 2011 Password with Start Disk

How to reset admin password


Reset Windows 7 admin password is not hard in fact, as long as you follow these methods to do.

Method 1: To Reset Admin Password with Administrator Account
On Win 7 logon screen, click user and "Switch user" to choose another administrator to sign into. Turn to Control Panel and navigate to User menu. Choose the account you want to reset its password, and remove its password. And then set a new password for it.

Method 2: Reset Admin Password with Password Reset Disk
You have two ways to get password reset disk. One is create it when you still have the administrator password. The other is to create it with third-party software, such as Windows 7 password genius.

Similarly, on Win 7 logon screen, after type wrong password, click link "Reset Password" to go on. Or insert password reset disk into Windows 7 computer and boot it from disk. Windows 7 Password Genius runs, at the same time, all accounts and password list for you. Choose the administrator account, and click "Reset Password" to finish Windows 7 admin password reset.
