If you have set an admin password,going into safe mode will do nothing if you forgot it. You will need to use a password recovery tool.
I would love to hear how these people think that the password can be reset in safe mode.

Safe Mode is a component of Windows that allows you to access your Window’s interface without having to load unnecessary drives and software. This component becomes useful if you are having much difficulties running your Windows version normally or if it has been corrupted by another program. In Safe Mode, only your basic drivers and programs will show up (enough to let you as least try to reconfigure the Windows errors that might have happened or remove virus that become active only when starting your PC normally.).
How to get into Safe Mode with Windows XP
It is easy to get into Safe Mode. It is done while you are switching on (booting) your computer.

  • 1. When the first screen will display the memory and hardware information about your PC, press the F8 key.
  • 2. Windows XP will by now list the various booting options for your system. With the keyboard arrows, choose to boot your system in ‘Safe Mode’.
  • How to get into Safe Mode with Windows XP Home edition
    With a Windows XP Home edition, you should first logon to the Admin account by disabling the “Bypassing the Logon Screen”.

    If you have “Bypassing the Logon Screen” turned on here's how to turn it off:

    To disable this function:
    • 1. Go to your start button, select “Command Prompt” from the “Accessories” list.
    • 2. Type in “control userpasswords2” and press “Enter”. This command will launch the Windows 2000 User Accounts application.
    • 3. Go to the “Users tab” and check the box labeled “Users Must Enter a User Name and Password to Use This Computer”, then click “Ok”.


    You can now boot into Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key. The password for the Admin account should be left blank in Safe mode.
    hope this helps .pls dont forget to rate as fixyaa thanks and Godbless

Reboot the computer. Press and hold the f8 button. Select safe mode from the menu. You should be able to see the admin login. Then you can make the changes.

How to Reset HP Pavilion Password on Notebook Computer


kathli.jpg

Pavilion BIOS password reset is commonly needed. Today, we talk about HP Pavilion Windows password reset solutions. Our Windows OS users can set up administrator account and encrypt it with password to enter the OS. This actually prevents unauthorized users from operating on your system. While, if we Pavilion PC users forget the encrypted password and can't login Windows, now what to do for HP Pavilion password reset?


Firstly, if there are not important files on our HP Pavilion notebook, we can reinstall system by deleting all data and cleaning system. Most of us may hope opt for other ways to bypass the Pavilion login password.


Secondly, please think that is there still another account for us to enter Pavilion PC. In Windows XP, Vista, there is HP Pavilion default administrator which has blank password. For Windows 7, the built-in administrator account is disable defaulted. Only if we set it as enable, the account can be used at the moment.
Take HP Pavilion Windows XP password reset from Safe Mode as example:
a. Press "F8" when Pavilion laptop starts.
b. At the "Advanced Boot Options" windows, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and Enter, then PC enters Safe Mode.
c. Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Note that if we have set this HP Pavilion administrator password, we need to input the password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
d. Start - Control Panel - User Accounts.
e. Select the locked account and reset password for the locked account.
f. Restart Pavilion laptop and login with the account newly password reset.


Thirdly, the least troublesome solution on Pavilion password recovery is to opt for password reset program tool. With the program and a CD/DVD/USB disk, we can easily remove the password for locked computer. Take Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
Step1. Burn .iso file to a CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive on an accessible PC;
Step2. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive;
Step3. Recover forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.

Certainly that the 3 ways can make sure we reset Pavilion password finally. The Windows Password Recovery Corporation can be used for Windows 7, XP, Vista, and Windows Server 2003, 2008 domain password, etc.

I forgot my window xp password


Reboot the computer in safe mode (tap F8 during the HP splash screen and choose safe mode from the menu selections). When the computer comes up to the user name, change it to administrator and no password. As long as you have not added an administrator password to this account, the computer should finish booting. Now go into control panel and use accounts. Remove the password from your user account (do not change, since you do not know the current password). Reboot the computer and your user account should load with out a password. You can add a password by going back in to control panel and user accounts.

Hope this helps

Forgot password, window xp home edition, how to by pass


Here is a little trick to use that may or may not work:
Start the computer in safe mode and log on as administrator. It's surprising how many people set up their XP computers and password protect their profile, but forget to password protect the administrator account. Once in, you can change your password in your own account.

Can't remember my password on hp 6000 computer how


Are you talking about the BIOS password, or the windows password?
A hard reset will probably reset your BIOS password (see this thread),

To reset your windows password, you need your XP CD-ROM and follow this instruction.

Forgotten Password


when booting after the post (beep) press the F8 key and load in safe mode. from there try and login as Administrator, 99% of computers have no password for that login. if you have the welcome screen just click on it, if you have the network login type in "Administrator"

from there you can goto the control panel access the user accounts and change/remove the passwords (this is based on the idea your computer is running xp/vista...based on data from hp i'm going to guess XP is what your running)

I'm afraid without the password reset floppy disk youre out of luck. They have a recovery program for Windows XP on the Microsoft website.
