If it is the password to boot , you can open the case and remove the small battery from the motherboard for a few seconds and replace it. this should clear the cmos password..

What is the Windows XP Administrator Password?


<p>Windows XP, the most popular versions of Windows, was widely installed by PC users. Do you remember after you installing your first copy of Windows XP, how long did it require you to realize that you didn't know the administrator password? I vaguely remembered that it was about a week before I needed to make some changes in the file system. It suddenly came to me to be logged on as an administrator, but I do not know the password of the administrator! <br /> <p> <br /> <p><img src="windows-xp-administrator-password.jpg" /> <p><br /> Luckily, Windows XP (both Home and Professional versions) have a "hidden" administrator account which is autogenerate when install. This account usually doesn't show up on the logon screen and most people are totally unaware of its existence. Usually it is ok because we didn't need to user this account very often, only when we don't know the administrator password, need access to the Windows XP recovery console or boot into Windows XP safe mode, the default <b>Windows XP administrator password</b> would come in handy.<br /> <p><br /> What is the Default Administrator Password in Windows XP?</b><br /> <p><br /> Knowing the default password of Windows XP administrator account would be very useful.<br /> <ol> <li>Try to leave the password blank. Simply press Enter without typing anything.</li></ol> <p>The default Windows XP Administrator password is defined to blank during the initial Windows XP installation process.<br /> <ol> <li> Enter the password for your account. It often depend on how Windows XP has been installed on your computer and what part of XP is asking for an admin password, the main user account will also be configured with administrator privilege.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Forgot my Windows XP Administrator Password!</b><br /> <p><br /> Windows XP User Accounts applet in the Control Panel functions is to create a password reset disk wizard. Using this wizard, a floppy disk or USB flash drive can be used to create a specific password reset disk for specific user account on a specific Windows XP computer. The password reset disk can only be used with the computer it was created on and it can also be reused to reset the account's password multiple times. However, you need to know the password of the account you want to create the reset disk for, and you must create the reset disk before you forget the administrator password <br /> Here is how to <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">reset XP administrator password</a> with the XP password reset disk:<br /> <ol> <li>Insert the XP password reset disk to the computer</li> <li>Click the Use your password reset disk item on the XP logon screen to start the Password Reset Wizard. Click the Next button</li> <li>Follow the instructions to create a new password. </li> <li>Logon with the new password.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Didn't Create a Password Reset Disk!</b><br /> <p><br /> OK, if you <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgot Windows XP administrator password</a> and don't have a password rest disk, you won't be able to create a password reset disk anymore. Instead, there are several things you can try to get access to your windows. <b>SmartKey Windows Password Recovery</b> is your ticket. This password recovery tool not only works on Windows XP, but also on all releases of Windows NT/2000/Vista/ 7 and Windows Server 2003/2008. It works by booting from a CD/DVD or USB flash drive and reset the <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten Windows XP administrator password</a>.<br /> <p><br /> <b>NOTE: </b>If you change the administrator password on a Windows XP or Windows Vista system with the Encrypted File System (EFS), all of the encrypted files will become inaccessible. The password for the Administrator account is used to create the EFS encryption key. Changing the Administrator account back to using the original password should restore access to the encrypted files, but I have never tried it.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>If you only need to blank the <b>Windows XP Administrator password</b>, here are the basic steps:<br /> <ol> <li> Download and install SmartKey Windows Password Recovery software.</li> <li> Burn the software to CD/DVD or USB flash drive. </li> <li> Insert newly created CD/DVD and reboot your computer from the CD/DVD or USB flash drive </li> <li> Reset the forgotten Windows XP password, remove the CD/DVD or USB flash drive and then reboot the computer</li></ol> <p>Having the capability to reset <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten XP administrator passwords</a> and regain access to a locked computer can be a great time saver, but should only be tried by an IT professional. you may probably make things worse rather than better if you use sophisticated system or manipulation tools<br /> <p><br /> <p>Article Source:<a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html">http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html</a><br />

I have acer spire 5745(CPU intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 6GB OS:Win 7 Home basic) which is 1.5 year old. Yesterday i started acer eRecovery then i can not create operating system recovery disk, but


Unfortunately for you, you didn't follow the Acer instructions. The recovery disc must be created before you start using the computer or making modifications.

There is a remote possibility that if you go into control panel and click on 'restore' and go back to the earliest date, you can then run the recovery disc. Remember that this only a remote possibility and I make no promises.

Reset forgotten Windows Vista Account Passwords


My son has an HP laptop and playing around, changed his password and then couldn’t get into his account. There were a number of problems here, any of which we could have fixed had we been paying more attention earlier on (like soon after he got his laptop):
  1. We could have created a password recovery disk (which can also be on a USB keyfob) – but we didn’t.
  2. We could have created a secondary administrative account on the machine with a password known only to me, his dad – but we didn’t.
We’ve now done both of these things since we were able to restore access to the machine under his previous password. But it was a bit of a trick to get access under the previous password. I figured we were going to have to reinstall Vista, using the File and Settings transfer program to first grab his old settings and files, and then reinstall all the programs – probably a 3-4 hour undertaking. But then I had another thought.
Method 1. The key here was using Vista’s System Restore feature.
The exact steps will probably vary on your machine (and this is from my memory on his HP laptop, having just done this) but roughly what we did was:
  1. Harangue him for a few hours to try to remember his password, try different variations (with and without caps lock on, for instance) and try omitting characters he might have thought he typed when he changed the password but didn’t. That didn’t work. icon_smile.gif
  2. Reboot the machine and press F11 while it’s booting – on HP machines, this gets into the "recovery console" which is thoughfully put on the system disk in a separate partition by HP.
  3. Select to restore the system (note: not restore to it’s original factory condition – that will reformat your main partition and wipe out your files, which we really wanted to avoid).
  4. Chose to reset to an early restore point – in his case, there was a restore point just four days old. Vista creates these restore points regularly. The only thing he had done in the last four days was reset his password, so I thought there was a chance that Vista might reset the old password along with the restore point. I wasn’t sure it would, but I thought it was worth a try.
  5. It took about ten minutes for Vista to do this and it then rebooted – and he was thrilled that he was able to log in with his old password!
I’ve used System Restore in other cases to get rid of really wierd behavior, and it always works like a charm. This is yet another use.
Oh, yeah, and we then created a secondary administrative account on the machine. Do that right now if you have a laptop with just one admin account – then squirrel away the password somewhere safe at home and you’ll thank yourself one day.
Method 2. Use windows password key 8.0
Step1: Choose the existing windows password key 8.0 image file.
You can click "Browse" to browse Windows Password Key 8.0 image file. The file is usually located as the default.
Step2: Choose your CD/DVD drive:
Select "CD/DVD" and specify the CD burning drive from the pull-down list. Insert a blank CD/DVD disk into the CD-ROM drive.
Step3: The burning process starts.
Windows Password Key extracts the ISO image and copies the necessary files on a CD.
Step 4: Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password:
1. Insert newly created CD in your CD drive and reboot your computer.
When the CD boots, you’ll see Windows Password Key 8.0 initializing (see screen shot below). If so, you can continue to the next step. If the computer boots still boots into Windows, it’s necessary to change your computer’s setup to make it boot from the CD.
Step 5: restart the machine.

Enter the recently changed password for the local user. Then you will get the above message stating ‘The user’s password must be changed before logging on the first time’
Click OK and type in the new password

Voila, you have just changed the password for the local account. Now you can login with the newly created password.
