Mantelo is right and it is the .SAM file you need to locate, if you plug the hard drive up to pc as a slave device you will be able to locate this file within the windows folder, use notepad to open it

Create Windows XP Password Reset Disk


Did you forget your Windows XP User password? You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.Or you can use your password reset disk. This article describes how to create a password reset disk for a computer that is not a member of a domain in Microsoft Windows XP.(that is part of a workgroup, or that is not connected to a network.)

What is the Windows XP Password Reset Disk?Do you need to enter a password when booting into Windows XP Pro? Afraid you might forget this password down the road and not be able to run your PC? Make a password reset disk to protect against a lost password.


Note: You may want to know how to create a user login password to protect xp.

To protect user accounts in the event that the user forgets the password, every local user should make a password reset disk and keep it in a safe place. Then, if the user forgets his or her password, the password can be reset using the password reset disk and the user is able to access the local user account again.

The Forgotten Password Wizard lets you create a XP password reset disk that you can use to recover your user account and personalized computer settings if you forget your password.

How to create a XP password reset diskTo create a password reset disk for your local user account, use the following method.

RequirementsThe following methods require a floppy disk drive and a blank floppy disk. As we all know, the floppy disk is easily damagedand it is out of date. In this demonstration, I will use a blank USB Fash Disk instead of floppy disk. Firstly make sure it is connected with your computer.

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2. In Control Panel, click User Accounts.
Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, double-click on the User Accounts icon.

3. In the User Accounts pane, click the account that you want to work with. Here I will click my account name "Andy".

4. Under the Related Tasks left side options, click Prevent a forgotten password to start the Forgotten Password Wizard, and then click Next.

5. In the drop-down menu, there are 2 options for us to choose. One is Floppy A, another is WPKEY (It is the name of my USB Flash Drive). Select the WPKEY and then click Next.

6. In the Current User Account Password box, type Andy's password , and then click Next. The Forgotten Password Wizard will start creating the disk.
Note: If the user account does not have a password, just leave it blank in the Current user account password box.

7. When the progress indicator shows 100% complete, click Next and then click Finish in the next window.


The password reset disk contains only one file called userkey.psw, which is an encrypted version of your password.

Finally Label the disk "Windows XP Password Reset" and store it in a safe place. You can use the password reset disk to gain access to your Windows XP-based computer if you forget your password.

Tips:
1.
You only need to create a password reset disk for your Windows XP logon password once. No matter how many times you change your password, this disk will always allow you to create a new one.

2. Keep in mind that anyone who possesses this disk will be able to access your account at any time, even if you change your password.You'd better store it in a safe place.

3. Not a Windows XP user? See the guides for other Windows versions.
How to Create a Windows 7 Password Reset Disk?

How to Create a Vista Password Reset Disk?

4. Unfortunately, if you've forgotten your Windows XP password and can no longer acceses Windows, you won't be able to create a password reset disk. Luckily there is a Windows password recovery program which can help you to find lost password. It is popular way of getting your password back, even you don't have a password reset disk. You can download the free tried Demo on clicking below link.

Help me.. i have forgotton my bloody password :) PLEASE HELP ME :L :L :L just give me words and stuffff :D


Reboot, at startup press F8 to access the safe mode menu. As long as you've never set a password for the administrator you should be able to log into safe mode as the administrator without a password. From here, go into User Accounts and select your user name and reset the password from there. In there future, you will want to place a password on your administrator account to keep someone from changing your password or having unauthorized access to your system.

I want to know my Administrator Password


Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD) 2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
