Dell optiplex gx60. Windows XP wont load and I need a password to get into safe mode. Any way to reset user password without access to windows?


Reset windows password have been an easy thing nowadays.

Here are the two ways to crack windows xp password.

1.You can go into safe mode (F8 at logo when booting up) and enter as administrator and then go to accounts and change Windows password and that's with XP. I haven't forgotten password for a pc before but can enter any XP pc in safe if the owner hasn't gone into safe mode and designated a password for "administrator" and usually only have a password for the user account but never have tried on Vista or Win7.

2.If that does not work,you can use software to reset the Windows password,my favorite is Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0
