I can solve this problem, but I need more information.

What operating system are you using? Windows XP, Windows 2000, Vista, etc.?
Are you able to log on to Windows and use the computer without an Administrator's password?

If you can log in, go to Control Panel > User Accounts > and create a new account with administrator privileges. Make sure you include a hint and you can remember the password.

My daughter gave me her eMachine desktop computer. She is the administrator, and has forgotten her password. How can I be the administrator?


Most of the time you can delete the password by removing the CMOS battery (round) and wait 30 minutes then replace it.
It's on the motherboard!

Forgot Windows Password - How to Reset the Password without Admin Rights?


<span style="font-weight: bold;">Problem:</span> "<a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/forgot-windows-password.html">Forgot Windows password</a>? How I can reset it without admin rights? On my Windows 7 machine, I created 2 accounts. One is an account with admin rights, and the other one is a limited account (standard user account). Now Windows is not recognizing my password for the administrator account. Can I reset the administrator password via the standard user account? Or is there any other way to reset the forgotten administrator account password? Please note I never created a password reset disk for the administrator account."<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Solution:</span> As for the above question, the answer is no as users cannot reset another account password via a standard user account. In my opinion, the most effective and simple approach case is to use a powerful Windows password recovery tool like Windows Login Recovery. With this password recovery tool at hand, you easily reset administrator, standard user and guest passwords by yourself if you forgot Windows password. Besides, it is very safe; no data will be lost after <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">Windows password reset</a>.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">How to reset forgotten Windows password?</span><br /><br />If you decide to use Windows Login Recovery when you forgot Windows password, you need to find an accessible computer, download and install the program in it. Once it is set up, run it and burn a password reset disk with a blank CD/DVD. Then you follow the instructions below to reset forgotten Windows password with the burned CD/DVD.<br /><br />Step 1. Insert the burned CD/DVD in your locked computer.<br /><br />Step 2. Press F2, Delete or F10 to enter BIOS Setup when the computer is booting.<br /><br />Step 3. Set CD-ROM as the first boot device in BIOS.<br /><br />Note: You could click here to view how to set the first boot device in BIOS. The computer will restart automatically after saving your BIOS settings. And you'll be able to reset forgotten Windows password under DOS.<br /><br />Step 4. Enter the NO. of your Windows installation path to display all its account user names.<br /><br />Step 5. Enter the NO. of a specified User Name to remove its account password, then enter y to confirm and continue your operation.<br /><br />Step 6. Enter n to finish your operation when the selected windows account password is removed.<br /><br />Note: If you want to remove another Windows account password, please enter y. And you'll repeat the previous steps to reset another account password.<br /><br />Step 7. Remove the burned CD/DVD and press any key to restart your computer when you enter n to finish your operation.<br /><br />Now the operation is finished. Windows will not ask you to enter a password when you log on to your computer. Don't you think it is easy? Never feel frustrated when you forgot Windows password with this method.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Why cannot use standard user account?</span><br /><br />Are you confused that why you cannot reset the administrator password by using the standard user account? Well, you need to learn what a standard user account is.<br /><br />According to Microsoft, a standard user account is to let a person use most of the capabilities of the computer, but permission from an administrator is required if you want to make changes that affect other users or the security of the computer.<br /><br />When you use a standard account, you can use most programs that are installed on the computer, but you can't install or uninstall software and hardware, delete files that are required for the computer to work, or change settings on the computer that affect other users. If you're using a standard account, some programs might require you to provide an administrator password before you can perform certain tasks. So if you forgot Windows password, you could not reset the password by using a standard user account.

Lost administration rights


What operating system are you using? If you are using windows 7 you can try.
1. Start computer and then press "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" twice at Windows Login Screen.
2. Type "Administrator" without quotations in the username box and leave password box blank. Then hit "Enter" to log onto Windows system.
3. Go to "Start->Control Panel->User Accounts" to unlock the forgotten Windows 7 password.
This will work if there has been no changes to the default settings of windows 7. It is the same for windows XP

I am paul baah-ampofo. i have forgotten my pw


If you are talking about your windows password, what you can try is at the login screen depress "control-alt-delete" twice. This will allow you to log on as the master computer Administrator ( The account set up during windows installation) I have found that few people give this account a password when installing windows and you can log in as "Administrator" and leave the password blank. If this doesn't work then get back with me because there is other routes you can take.
The Master Administrator log on screen can also be reached by pressing F8 when you are restarting your computer (after any BIOS information has been displayed). The windows advanced options screen will be displayed. Select the safe mode item on the menu and press enter. Windows boots to a lower-resolution version of the welcome screen that includes an Administrator entry.
If you have forgotten your BIOS password then all you have to do is take out the battery for at least 15 secs. I recommend a full minute. Our if you motherboard has the reset jumper where you can locate it without too much difficulty then jumper the two pins and that will reset your password.
Good luck and if you are talking about some other password then please let me know which password you have forgotten. And, good luck. Hope this helped you somewhat.

Forgotten Administrator Password


Greetings,


Please restart the computer.

Before windows boots hit the 'F8' key on the keyboard.

Select 'Safemode with command prompt'

Log in the default administrator account.

When the black command window appears type: control userpasswords2

Click on the user account you wish to change, then click 'reset password'
