To reset your password numerous applications are able to do just that. the only drawback is if EFS (encrypted file system) has been enabled on the xp system in question, if it has been unless you know the origional password the files that have been encrypted will remain unreadable.

one of the many free apps out there can be downloaded from the link below;
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080526.zip

this particular one is an iso image that should be burnt onto a cd. You reboot your computer making sure that boot from cd is permitted. Then follow the prompts to reset your password.

Note from my own experience: You tend to have more sucess when changing the administrator password, if you leave it blank ie no password entered, then from the operating system log on as the administrator then change the administrator password to something appropirate. of course once this has been done you then change the password of the account in question (again from the operating system) to something that you remember.

I forgot my password on my Dell Latitude 131L laptop, how can I reset w/out reset disc?


Start your computer into safe mode and log in as the built-in administrator account. If you can get in, open up the Control Panel and it lets you reset the password of any other account.

If you forgot Windows password and couldn't sign in with any account, you have to use the bootable utility like PCUnlocker, Chntpw, Ubuntu, Hiren's BootCD.

I forgot my login administrator password for my dell xps window 7


Anonymous,
If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.
Thank You,

Forgot password for dell inspirion 1440laptop


You'll need to reset your Windows/Hotmail/etc. password. Microsoft has integrated the whole shebang, now. So once you have access (borrow a family member's or friend's) to another computer, reset your Microsoft password. Then, with the laptop hooked up to the internet, log in with the new password. That should work.

For got password to login in how do i fix this


brendapace3,
What are you trying to login into? Your Windows computer or a website?

If you are trying to log into your computer and forgot the password.
Try starting in Safe Mode, by restarting the computer, and as soon as you see the Computers Manufacturers logo start pressing F8 on the keyboard. Select Safe Mode from the options (usually option 3). When it loads select the Administrator account (unless you set a password when you installed your operatinsg system, this should not have a password set. Leave the password field blank and log in. Once logged in, go into Control Panel, Select user accounts and remove or change the password for your user account. Save changes. Exit control panel and Restart the computer.

If you forgot the password for a website, most sites have a Forgot Password or Need assistance with Logging in link. That link is usually under the login boxes.

Hope this helps
