How to Reset Forgotten Password on Computer


How to find computer password quickly that I forgot computer password? Can anyone help me reset forgotten computer password? Any helps will be appreciated! - Now check the following ways on reset lost computer password!

Firstly, use password prompt function on password locked computer
If you have set the prompt option when you set account password, it may help you remember something about your forgotten computer password!


Secondly, reset computer password with default administrator account Once we install Windows OS, there will be automatically generated an "Administrator" account with blank password. Therefore, if we forgot password on computer, we can have a try:
a. Boot system, and press Ctrl + Alt + Del keys twice when the Windows login screen comes up.
b. At the Classic Login window, input: Administrator and keep Password box null. Then press Enter key to login.
c. Recover computer password by: Control Panel - User Accounts.

Thirdly, find computer password with computer password reset disk If we created this computer password reset disk before we forgot password, we can opt for the disk to help us unlock password efficiently.
a. Click OK and close the message box on the password incorrect prompt window.
b. Click "Reset Windows Password" and insert the password reset disk.
c. Do as the "Password Reset Wizard" to create a new password.

Fourthly, change computer password with Windows Installation Disc Take computer Windows XP as example:
a. Start computer using Windows XP Setup CD.
b. When it asks to repair our current Windows installation, choose "Accept" it and press "R" to run the repair. Then computer will begin to repair our Windows and copy files to hard drive.
c. Setup will reboot system. Please don't press any key when there is "Press any key to continue..."
d. Now computer will do other tasks and there will be a progress bar displayed. Please notice carefully the details shown at the bottom of screen.
e. Once "Installing Devices" comes up, press keys: Shift+F10. Input: nusrmgr.cpl and press Enter key at the Command Prompt window.
f. The same "User Accounts" window will display as it is in Control Panel. Choose "Administrator account" and select any account listed to change or remove your computer password.

Fifth, break computer password by DIY a password recovery disk If the above four methods still can't help us reset lost computer password, we can refer to this way now. DIY a password reset disk after forgotten computer password means that we burn an .iso image file from Windows password recovery software into a bootable CD/DVD/USB disk. Now, take one of the top-rated Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
a. Download and install Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery Corporation in any accessible computer (not from computer you want to unlock)
b. Burn an ISO image file to CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive
c. Set locked computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive and set the BIOS Setting for CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive.
d. Reset forgotten computer password to default Re123456.


The above ways on forgotten computer password reset are the collections of best bet for us to unlock lost computer password! So even if we forgot computer password, things will be OK soon!

How do i reset my windows xp password if i have forgotten it


Forgot Windows XP password? The first thing which you check is whether you forgot windows xp login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forgot your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. Or try free program called Ophcrack or Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.

I forgot my e-recovery password, no recovery disks...


Don't you have created the password Recovery disk early?
If you do, you can sign into safe mode and recover the password.
If you don't have the password reset disk. you have to take use of the 3rd party utility,
Windows Password Recovery 6.0 is highly recommend. It is fast and easy to use.

Forgot password


The first thing you can try to do is login via the main Administrator account....usually there is not a password set on this account and it will allow you to remove the password on the account you forgot the password to.....follow these steps

Using The Admin account:
  1. Shut down the computer
  2. Start the computer
  3. As soon as the computer powers on tap the F8 key on the keyboard
  4. You will see a black screen with white lettering and a bunch of options , selct the top option which says "Safe Mode"
  5. Windows will load (and everything will look huge on the screen but that is ok!). When you get to the "Welcome!" screen you should see the administrator account...click on it to log in
Now you should be in Windows , to remove your password on the account you forgot:

  1. Click the "Start" button
  2. Click "Control Panel"
  3. Double Click on the "User Accounts" Icon
  4. Click on the account you want to remove the password from
  5. Click the link that says "Remove Password"
  6. Hit "Save"
  7. Restart the computer
Now you should be able to log directly into your account with no password. Once in the accoun tyou can follow the steps above to set a new password , instead of removing password @ step 5, click "Set New Password"
