Hello stavros3210 ...

I'll presume you mean a Windows user account password ...

ADMINISTRATOR VS ADMINISTRATOR.

It may help to understand the distinction of the word "administrator". There is:

  1. The ACCOUNT which is named "Administrator" (unless it has been subsequently renamed since initial install).
  2. The WORD "administrator" as it relates to the TYPE OF PRIVILEGES (aka credentials) a user may be assigned. These privileges are akin to a master key granting FULL access to your operating system.
USER ACCOUNT NOT SHOWN AT WELCOME SCREEN.

If you have need to login to an account (i.e., "Administrator", "Guest", etc.), but it's not shown at your "Windows XP Welcome Screen":
  1. Depress and hold down, then release (in sequence) the keys 'Ctrl'+'Alt'+'Del' two times (or more if a sequence isn't recognized successfully).
  2. A "Log On to Windows" dialog will display in which you can login as any registered user.

RESETTING FORGOTTEN PASSWORD.

METHOD 1: MAYBE THERE IS NO PASSWORD.

Depending upon the login location, try it with the password input field left blank. If you're lucky (for this situation only I mean), there has never been a password assigned to the 'Administrator' account (applies to Windows XP only).

ADVISORY: If this is your solution, you need to assign a password to it, because there really should have been one in the first place. Leaving the 'Administrator' account left unprotected is not only leaving the "backdoor open", but also the front door with a sign that says "come on in, I'm not home."

METHOD 2: RESET 'ADMINISTRATOR' (OR ANY USER'S) PASSWORD VIA USER WITH ADMINISTRATOR PRIVILEGES.
  1. Login to Windows as any user (with known password) that has administrator privileges.
  2. Start > Run ... > type "control userpasswords2" (without quotes), then "OK".
  3. Select the user account you can't remember the password to, then click "Reset Password".
  4. Type a new password in "New password" and "Confirm new password", then "OK".
NOTE: You may (you shouldn't, but you may) also have a user account that's NOT password protected AND has administrator privileges.

METHOD 3: SOFTWARE SOLUTION.

If methods 1 and 2 are not successful, you're then left with the big gun: "Ultimate Boot CD for Windows" (UBCD4Win). It's a FREEWARE multi-functional recovery boot disk. One of its MANY included utilities is "Sala Password Renew". With it, you can create a new local user with administrator privileges. You can then successfully use method 2 to reset the "Administrator" account. Go to this website http://www.ubcd4win.com/index.htm and follow the guidance found there. There are other FREEWARE all-purpose recovery boot disk available (TRK-Trinity Rescue Kit, UBCD, etc.), but in my opinion, UBCD4Win is your best choice.

NOTE: If compelled to use this method, look upon it as a blessing in disguise. It's an invaluable tool you'll likely be relieved to have many times over in the future. In fact, you should strongly consider it even if you don't NEED it "this time". After all, the time to have this disk is BEFORE you need it.

Good luck, and please post back and let me know how things turn out, or if you have any further questions.

I have a sony laptop with another adminstrator password


You will be extremely lucky to break it. GCHQ in the UK spend lots of time with the most powerful computers in the world to try and break codes like your password, without success. Try and remember it, have you got a clue written down somewhere?

I locked myself out of my acer aspire and cant remember my password?


You're going to have to contact Acer to get a master password for your system. New Acer laptops are designed to where the password is stored in non-volatile memory, so if you forget the password, you can't reset it by dismantling the unit like previous laptops.

I have toshiba satellite A215-S5837 but no remember my pasword


if you cant remember your password you must use your recovery disk but this will mean you'll format your hard drive so all your files will be deleted or you could use a program called hdd unlock youll need a computer to do this because laptops only have one docking station for a hard drive to save space if you do have a computer connect your hard rive using a docking station download this program for your hard drive to be usable again http://www.hddunlock.com/download/.

How break pasword for laptop Hp nx 6110 ( power-on-password)


Hi,

You've no chance of cracking the power on password without help from Dell themselves, but you have to have ownership of the laptop and have it registered to you with Dell otherwise they will refuse to give you the password to get into the operating system and reset the password.

If they do refuse then the only other option is to replace the motherboard which are not cheap.

The reason for this is that the power on password is stored on the TMP chip which is similar to the eeprom chip. It always remembers the password even if you take the BIOS battery out. You cannot reset the password without help from Dell.



Regards.
