Locked administrator


For Windows Password:
1. Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box.
2. Type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank.
3. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you should be able to reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Log in screen.

Unlock Windows password with Windows built-in Administrator account.

Here's how this admin unlocks forgotten Windows password:
Start your computer and wait for the Windows Login or Welcome Screen. Once it shows, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and then type Administrator in the pop-up username box, but leave the password column blank. Next you could successfully log onto system. The following steps for resetting the forgotten password are quite easy. You can make it from "Start->Control Panel->Users Accounts".

Besides, Windows Password Reset is a great choice .

The compuyter made a very funny running sound and then the screen with black. I can not start up the laptop, but 2 blue power buttons are on.


You got 2 options:
1-Start the pc and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl>+alt>+del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2-Some computer systems have a setting in the BIOS Setup to disable the password. The BIOS Setup is accessed with the F1, F2 or DEL key during boot up. If you have forgotten your password, most systems have a jumper on the motherboard that can be pulled off to clear the password. If there is no jumper available, you can also remove the battery for 5 minutes to clear CMOS.

Turn the Welcome screen on or off It sounds as if you accidentally turned off the welcome screen. Here's how to turn that function on and off:



To turn the Welcome screen on or off
You must have a computer administrator account on a computer that is a member of a workgroup or is a stand-alone computer to turn on or turn off the Use the Welcome screen feature. Logging on at the Welcome screen is not available on computers that are members of a network domain.
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifUser Accounts in Control Panel.
  2. Click Change the way users log on or off.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To specify that users log on to the computer using the Welcome screen, select the Use the Welcome screen check box. A user logs on to the computer by clicking his or her user account name on the Welcome screen. If a password is assigned to the account, the user is prompted to type it.
    • To specify that users log on to the computer without using the Welcome screen, clear the Use the Welcome screen check box. The Welcome screen will no longer appear when you start the computer. To log on to the computer, type your user name (and password, if you have one) in the standard Log On to Windows dialog box.
