Agreed that reinstalling XP will resolve the problem.
If the CD drive is broken, replacements are cheap. You can pick up used ones for $5, you can get new DVD burners for $24 (I just bought 30 of them).

The problem we are faced with here, is we do not know the complete situation there. We have had instances where people have tried to hack into systems admin accounts, and we cannot be held responsible (so please understand our side of the question, this is detailed in the TOU). So only a hands-on situation would confirm this.
There is software that does password cracks (just do a search for that) but the results are never 100% guaranteed. There is no "magic" code that allows you to bypass the admin password. That's why I asked if there were other accounts installed. If you have an admin equalivant in another account, you can change the admin password through the computer advanced management section.

Now you did say you are trying to update it? As in the patch updates? Or something else?

I need my password restored. I cant get the reset to work this happens quite often when I put the correct password in it tells me it is not the correct password.

What operating system and what kind of computer do you have?
You can try the options in the video link.
Some things to try, but I can't guarantee they will work.
1. Type in the password field, computer manufacturer name and year of the computer, such as acer2014. Hit enter.
Next one you can try.
2. when computer boots hit F8, and select Safe Mode with Prompt.
At C prompt, type: net user Administrator /active:yes. Next prompt, type, shutdown -r
When the computer reboots, you will have an administrator account you can log into. I don't guarantee this will work.
There are paid programs like the one listed in the video that will unlock your computer.
I hope I helped you some.

You would have to log into your computer under administrator. You may need a password. If you are not the administrator or do not have the password you can not change settings on the computer. You can try going to the control panel and clicking on users to see user information.

I cant remember my password please help

I am assuming here that you either have another computer or are using someone elses.

In technical forums, there are many floppy images you can download that will reset your administrator password to blank, allowing to to then login and change any other password you need to. Trying one of these is one sure-fire way to get into a password protected WIndows without knowing what your password is.

First though, you should try Microsoft's answer to this problem:

If that doesn't work for you, get a floppy image, but be very careful, as lots of sites that offer these types of things have viruses or malware built into their web sites. Make sure all anti-virus software is up to date before doing that.

Reset passwords

Try booting to safe mode. Press f8 upon powering the computer. It will bring you to a screen of startup options. Select safe mode. When it reaches the login screen, the administrator account will be visible as well as the other account you need the password for. Hopefully there is no password for administrator. Try logging in to the administrator account with no password. If this works, then you are lucky. You can now go into control panel, user accounts and select the user account that has the new password. You can then change the password to a new one.

Hopefully this works for you.
