I forgot my pass code and lost my restart disk


OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Forgot Windows XP password! Try these....



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.

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.

Dear, i reinstall window xp professional on first it asked me product key which i put after window install it again asked activation code. when i click on it window open and bring a screen with different...


> I reinstall Windows XP Professional .. it asked me [for] product key.

What CD-ROM did you use -- the CD-ROM supplied by the manufacturer (Dell, HP, eMachines, ACER) or a "non-genuine" copy on a CD-recordable disk?

Did you copy the product-key from the decal on the side-panel of the desktop
(or the decal on the bottom of the laptop) ?

Were you connected to the Internet when it "again" asked for the activation code?
If so, Windows has connected to Microsoft, to compare your product-key to a list
of "bad" ("compromised") license-keys, and it found a MATCH, indicating that you
have a "non-genuine" copy of Windows XP.

Please supply more details.

I want to open my windows xp professional sp2.but dont have the activation code


As this is an original, Microsoft will class it as simply a lost licence key.

Phone you local Microsoft branch and explain you have lost your key. They will ask you a couple of easy questions about the disk and then supply you with a new key that is fully functional. You will then be up and running.

If this helped you then please help me by voting kindly.
