Question about Gateway 4026GZ Notebook
I have been using my notebook for more than a year. Suddenly it wouldn't accept my password when I log in as Administrator. I am very sure I have keyed in the right password. I couldn't do any Administrator work, since I could only log in as Guest. I only have two accounts, Administrator and Guest. I tried all sorts of things, but couldn't get in. Help!
When you lost windows os password, you could enter into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to reset windows password while you didn't remember user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there's no way to change it, you need to use software to recover admin password. A week ago, I forgot my Windows admin password. At last, I used Windows Password Seeker to remove my Windows password successfully. It's worth trying.

Here are the step by step instructions:
Log on as an administrator to reset the password
If you did not create a password reset disk, you may be able to log on as an administrator to reset a forgotten or expired password. The steps to do this differ if the computer is a stand-alone computer or a member of a workgroup of two or more, or a member of a domain. Select the appropriate set of steps from the following to try to log on as the administrator to reset the password.
Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional
To log on to a computer as the administrator to reset a password, try the following steps.
1. Log on as an administrator.
a. Restart the computer.
b. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE two times, and then type the name of the administrator user account.
c. In the Password box, type the administrator password, and then click OK.
Note If the administrator password is set to a blank password, do not type a password before you click OK.
2. Reset the password.
. Click Start, and then click Run.
a. Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.
b. On the Users tab, click the name of the user account that you want to reset the password for, and then click Reset Password.
c. Type a new password in the New password box, and then type the password again in the Confirm new password box, and then click OK.
d. Restart the computer, and then try to log on to Windows XP again.
If you can log on as an administrator to reset your password and you can now log on successfully, you have resolved the issue, and you are finished.
