Administrator Password Problem

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.

Maybe you mean log on password. If you never enter a password to log on, but suddenly when turning on the computer, you are prompted to enter a password to log on, but always failed. You try to log in using an administrator user but failed. Chances are, the operating system is infected with viruses.
So, the operating system has controlled the virus.

solution:
Install the new operating system (not repair the operating system)

I created a user name and password on my asus lap top but i forgot them,when i log on it writea administrator for user name,and when i type in the password it doesnt accept it,please help.


Try 'admin' or 'administrator' for the password or try leaving the password blank. If this does not work then try downloading a program like OPHCrack and let it search for user names and passwords.

Forgot my log on password how can i reset password


I have included instructions for windows XP, however, no matter what operating system you have installed on your notebook, this solution may work. When windows is installed, there is an adminstrator account installed on the computer by default. Most often, the password is left blank.

So, if you restart your computer, hit control-Alt-Deletecan when the user account page appears and type in Administrator as the user and leave the password blank, you may be able to sign onto your computer to reset your user password. Step by step instructions are listed below. If you cannot access your computer using the administrator account, you many have to use the restore partition on your computer to do a restore of windows. This will bring windows back to the original configuration as it was when the computer was delivered to you. You should be able to chose a "Non destructive" restore so that your hard drive is not formatted and your documents will not be erased.

If you need further instruction on using the restore utility on your Pavilion notebook, let me know.

Here are the step by step instructions:

Log on as an administrator to reset the password

loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); 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

loadTOCNode(4, 'moreinformation'); 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.

How do i reset the pass work on my thinkpad. somebody changed it and wont give the new pass word to me


If you remember your administrator password, or if your administrator has no password, simply start your laptop in safe mode. Do this by pressing F8, a list of options will be displayed. Select Safe Mode.

In safe mode, it will ask you for the account to log in with, select "administrator" and log in.
When you successfully log in, delete the user account with the changed password and create a new account with your password.
