    I bought this macbook from a pawn shop and i'm now trying to load programs on it, but it is asking me for the admin name and password. needless to say i don't know it. I was wondering if anyone knows how to reset the computer so I can load my programs.

    It can be done if your computer has the ability to boot from USB Flash Drive.
    To check, you can go to the BIOS settings and see if you have USB Zip option in Bootable device preference list.

Does this account is your administrator account? If not, then you can go to Safe Mode by login with administrator to reset your account password.

If you forgot administrator password, then you can creating a bootable password reset disk to reset the password on your own, just get help with this password recovery tool Windows Password Breaker.

Good Luck.

I have forgotten my password on my pc and i`m using vista pls how can i hav access to system without new installation or formatting it. Thx


If you didn't setup a password for the administrator account you can probably access that in safe mode.
To enter in safe mode press F8 key before the computer reaches the boot up screen.
If you need further information please free to comment.

Bought a used pc, do not have password for windows log-on. cannot get to bios, no boot up cd. what now?


Most XP machines have a built in administrator account that normally does not have a password.

You can try pressing F8 before Windows starts up to go into the XP bootup menu.

Choose Safe mode

Once into safe mode you should either see an 'Administrator' account listed, or just type in Administrator and do not type a password. If that works, go to Start-->Control Panel-->User Accounts. From there you can create a new user account for you to use with administrative privileges.

If that doesn't work, try downloading a password reset utility, such as the one at http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Hope this helps

ADMINISTRATOR account disabled


Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.

I forget admin password in my


If this is Windows XP. Go into safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up. You will be given a choice on which "mode" you'd like to start Window in. Choose Safe mode. Then click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" . You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrator's account and will be able to reset the password. Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset Password

Yes, when you switch the laptop on hold down the F8 key until you see a black screen with a list of white text, one of the options will be "Safe Mode", use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode (just safe mode, not safe mode with anything) and press return. The computer will start to the welcome screen and you will see a user-name you don't normally see called "Administrator". Click on Administrator and you will find it is not password protected (in spite of the fact that the Administrator account has more access to the system than any other account!) when the administrator profile loads it will ask you if you want to continue in safe mode and you do. click start, click control panel and click on users and groups now click on your son's user account and click remove password. now click back, click on the Administrator account and click change password, the old password should be left blank and you're new Administrator password should be something at least 7 letters, numbers and special characters (!@£$%^&*) long that you can remember. Now just restart and let it start up normally, once loaded advise your son to set a password he can remember or at least write down somewhere safe.
