I cannot get into my computer

I recently found my old PC and I forgot the password to it. I tried OphCrack and I can't start my computer in Safe Mode without getting past the password/username login. I really need this computer for my new job. Please help!

You can find it out but you can't read it. If you forgot your windows password you can reset or remove it with window password reset tool. I recommend this site http://www.reset-windows-password.com/how-to-reset-windows-password.html

Hello wii-will,

You will need to boot in safe mode (f8 after restart) and try the administrator account.If you do not know the the password for any account you will need to create a boot disk to reset the password.

This is a good place to start:

I have used this many times to reset passwords on XP systems:

I forgot my password and i need to reboot my compact cq56


On another computer do a Google search for a free password cracking program. One of the best is Ophcrack. Download it and load it on a USB drive, boot the Compaq in safe mode and load the USB program and run Ophcrack. Your passwords will show up and you should see the System password in the list

Try this i am sure it will help you.

follow this STEP BY STEP!
1. Turn on the computer, then press F8... this will bring up a boot options menu.
2. Select Safe Mode and click ENTER
3. Then wait for it to start up. (it should take longer than usual)
4. Click on admin (or type in administrator and click enter)
5. That should open up a "Back Door" account to let you change the password to any other accounts.

I forgot my login password


You can do a couple of things.
The quick way, is to hope that your computer shipped with a blank admin password. Power on the computer and while it's booting tap the F8 key. You will eventually get a menu, choose Safe Mode. Try logging in as administrator with no password, if it works you can then change your password from the Control Panel -> users
If that doesn't work, download ophcrack live CD and boot to it. Here is a link, this will boot up and give you your passwords.

I have a Latitude D600 It is 5 yrs old and I have forgotten my user name and password, I have tried F8 repeatedly, this takes me to safe mode and then to log on. So I am back where I started. Can anyone...


Write down a list of possible passwords. Try to remember which passwords you were using when you first got the computer. Alternately, try the password "administrator".

I cannot remember my password to log onto the computer, how can this be remedied?


Try booting into Safe mode, if you can get in, (using win xp), go to control panel / user accounts/ craete new account. Set as admin.
Reboot and open with new account, you can then access the old account to change the password

Or delete the old account and SAVE the files for that account

Forgot my password


well there are a few ways of going about it. Simplest way i found to do this is download a program called Ophcrack http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd and use windows to burn the ISO file to a cd. When you boot your computer press F10 to get into a boot menu and boot from the CD. all the program to do what it has to do and it will provide you with the password in about 5 minutes.

If this is a Windows password, enter safe mode at start up, log in as administrator, from here you can clear any user passwords.
