These techniques to recover a lost xp password are among the more advanced Windows XP Tips and Tricks. In some cases, recovering from a lost password can be very easy though.

For completeness' sake we start with the simplest tips that can help you regain access to a locked account. But even if you find yourself in a more complex situation, please read on. You'll find out what to do.

Warning : Be extra careful if you are using Encrypting File System (EFS) in Windows XP Professional. If you don't know what EFS is, you probably shouldn't worry about it. It's a feature in Windows XP Professional that deals with file security on a local level. If you do use it, please always make sure to export your private and public keys before attempting to reset your password.
If you can login with another user account If you share your computer with other users it's fairly simple to regain access to your account. You could ask one of the other users to log on to Windows with their password and perform the following steps :
  • Click the Start button
  • Click "Run"
  • In the "Open" field, type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes)
  • Click ok
Windows opens a user accounts dialog. Select the user with the lost password and click the "Reset Password" button. Enter a new password (and a second time in the confirmation box) and click ok. Click ok once again and you are ready.
Now you can log on to your account using the new password.

More advanced password recovery If there are no other users on your machine to unlock your account, you need to reset your password "offline". Offline means that you boot your pc from outside your usual Windows XP environment using a boot disk or a bootable cdrom.
This offline technique to recover a lost xp password isn't for the faint of heart; the procedure isn't presented in a nice graphical interface and there even is a small risk involved ...
Sometimes the password reset fails and as a consequence you cannot log on with the locked user account afterwards. This doesn't happen often though, and if you are reading this because you need to recover a lost xp password ...
you weren't able to log on after all ...
Of course you will need access to another pc to create a boot disk or bootable cd.

Is your boot sequence right ? Your computer's boot sequence is set in the BIOS and determines if the pc can boot from a floppy or cdrom. To get into the BIOS, you typically need to press a certain key or key combination during startup. Depending on the brand of your computer this can be :
  • The F1 key
  • The F2 key
  • The F10 key
  • The del key
  • Ctrl+Alt+Enter
  • Ctrl+Alt+Esc
  • ...
If you have made your way into the BIOS, now would the time to choose either your floppy drive or your cdrom as primary startup device.

I forgot my adminstrative password for dell dimension 2400 pc (windows xp)


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.

Forgot adminstrator password


Their are several programs available on the web that you can burn to a CD and use a liveboot scenario that will usually guide you through the process.

Dont be bothered with the guys telling you that since you lost or forgot your admin password that your a theif, that should be reported as abuse.

Locked out from pc? forgot password? how to change password?


If you are using Windows XP Professional there is an Admin Account Hidden. Thats if it isnt the current one.
Start your computer and repeatedly hit F8 for boot changes, start in "Safemode" or "Directory Services and Repairs"
If the Welcome screen shows Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del twice to get classic logon screen then Type Admin and if there is a Password enter it.

If you do log in, you should have the ability to change the account Password or create new one.

If you are Using XP Home Edition then theres not much luck unless you can think of the PW.
Your Best bet is to Backup and Reinstall Operating System
