Recently given a computer with an unknown administrator password

Hi,

Our elderley neighbour just went into a home and we were given his acer 3500 that he has password locked. There is no backup (forgotten password) recovery disk. Of course he cannot remember what the psswd is and we cannot use the computer to it's fullest. How can we get around this.

In Most of the computers ( if it has a backup recovery inbuilt). When computer starts keep on pressing F11 key on the top of your keyboard. In some computers this function is on F10. But make sure when you do system recovery you will loose all data if you would like to go for destructive recovery. If you want to backup ur files first dont go for destructive recovery but choose other recovery option.
If you dont have any backup system then you might have product key sticker somewhere on you computer. If its window Xp home then borrow XP home from someone and when it ask for product key enter that product key. THis way you can reinstall Operating system.
Hope it helps

My netbook wont let me log on, and is telling that my password is wrong. How can I logon?


Check if Caps lock is on. If there is a local administrator account you can sign on with instead, try that. If this is a work laptop you've taken home to use, it may be looking for your work's wireless network.

I would like to introduce Windows Password Key 8.0 . it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It creates a password recovery CD/DVD,USB Flash Drive for home, business and enterprise. It works perfectly to reset your Windows password.

Lost log in password for travelmate 3230


if winxp home
1. restart
2. press f8 to go into advance start up options
3. select "safe mode", then press enter
4. log on as the administrator (you better remember the password for this one if any... generic installations may not have a password for this account)
5. try to change the password (I'm not sure if you can but you can try) if your system has the ntfs file system you may have to create an administrator priviledged user and have that user taking ownership of the files you can't access as an administrator... ... if you have fat32 file system. you can just go right into your files..)

if winxp pro
1. you can just at the log on screen press ctlr+alt+del combination twice
2. type "Administrator" (and password if provided at time of windows installation)
3. start > right click on my computer> manage computer > users and groups > look for user name (your own) and right click>all tasks>set password (this will reset allow you to reset the password.)
4. read the desclaimer first then go for it.
