How can i log in if my password quit working?


What do you mean it quit working? What type of error message are you getting when you put your password in?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

  2. Click on the User Accounts link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, double-click on the User Accounts icon.
  3. In the pick an account to change area of the User Accounts window, click on your Windows XP user name.

    Entering the password twice helps to make sure that you typed your password correctly.

  7. The next screen asks Do you want to make your files and folders private?. If other user accounts will be setup on this PC and you'd like to keep your personal files private from those users, click on the Yes, Make Private button.
    If you're not concerned about this kind of security or this account is the only account on your PC, there's no need to make your files private. In this case, click on the No button.
  8. You can now close the User Accounts window and the Control Panel window.
  9. Now that your Windows XP account has a password setup, you must use this password to log on to Windows XP from this point forward.

3. Select Safe Mode and Press Enter
4. Voila! You are in Safe Mode
5. Log Out/ Switch User
6. You Should See and Icon for Your User Account and Administrator
7. Select Administrator.
_________________________________________________

Part 2

Once Logged in Follow these steps:

1. Open Local Users and Groups by clicking the Start button , typing lusrmgr.msc into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER.‌
2. Double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.
3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.
4. Type and confirm the new password.
5. Restart your PC normally
6. Log in with your new password ;-)

I hope this Helps. Take Care =)
