You actually probably created the new account as an admin. You don't really need to recover it. You just use this account as your admin account. You can then create another non admin account now and have everyone else besides the "admin" likely being you, can use the non admin account. All your files can still be found in "rootdrive:\Documents and settings\administrator
There you can find all your documents that you had in My documents under the administrator account.
Hope this helps,

Lost administrator rights


Step 1:
Computer administrators have access to make certain changes on a computer that other users may not have. Administrators have full freedom to install and uninstall programs, move files around and make changes to the Windows registry. There are actually three ways that one may become the administrator on their computer; during the initial setup, change the settings in the Control Panel or by having the current administrator change the permissions on the account.

Set up an account during the initial setup of Windows on the computer. During the setup wizard, you will be asked to set up an administrator account. Choose the account name, user icon and password to set up the administrator account. Step 2.Change your account permissions if there isn't an administrator account currently setup. During some installations Windows users were allowed to install the program without setting up an administrator account. Click on "Start" then "Control Panel" to open the Control Panel. Click on "Users and Accounts" or "Users Accounts and Family Safety". Click on "User Accounts." Click on "Add or remove user accounts" then "create a new account". Assign the new account administrative privileges, a user name and password. Click "OK" and close all windows. Log in under the new Administrator account. Have the current administrator change your account privileges from "User" to "Administrator". She can do this by following the same steps described in Step 2. Instead of creating a new account, she must click on your current account and then apply the new permissions. If you do not currently have an account on the computer, she will need to create you one.

HP pavillion will start in safe mode but can't login to windows sometimes get a black screen with beeping


Hi,
In that case we will first do the power drain of the computer.- Turn of the computer.- Unplug all the devices from the computer.- Take out the battery and the unplug the charger and keep aside.- Now press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without the battery and charger.- after 60 seconds place the battery back and plug in the adaptor and turn on the computer. Check whether you were able to login to the computer or not.
If the issue still persist, then
Try to login to the safe mode with networking option with f8 button. If you are able to login then create a new user account on your laptop. After restart the computer try to login with a new user account.
If still doesnot work, then system recovery would be the only option available, Which will restore your computer to its original factory setting. Try to run a recovery of the computer with the media you have created or with the internal recovery partition.

I have forgotten my password


Hi,
If you have forgotten the password of your user account there are only two options which can be used.
1)If you have two or more user account on the this computer you can try to access other user account of other user and access user accounts in control panel.
Remove your user account password and log off and try to access your account.

** you can access recovery manager from the F11 option or Use the recovery cds.
while performing the recovery you will get the option to back up your data please back up your data before performing the recovery or you will loose all your files.
this will resolve your issue.
Thanks.

Have You Lost Your Windows Admin Password?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
