You can easily change Windows XP
administrator password by using Windows XP installation disk or by
using password reset disk. If you don't have any of these disks
then you can use stellar phoenix password recovery software.

i think i know what yr saying. if u installed the xp into yr hard disk from a diff system then brings it back to yr system it possibly will not work cos these board were not made of the same chips. i dont think yr motherboeard is bad i think yu have just done the wrong thing.
if yu can tell me yr problem in details i will tell u what to do.

Just re-install XP on a diffrent partition.
then trancfer all your files back on it.
It will reconise the other XP as another HDD.

I recommend a complete reinstall of windows, here is how you should proceed:
- First you need your product license key for XP, did you get any winXP CD's or manuals? The product key may be located on a sticker found on them, sometimes with preinstalled laptops, a product license key may be located on underside of the device on a microsoft-labeled sticker, write it down on a piece of paper.
* No sticker or torn/unreadable sticker? Then do following (best suited for intermediate-advanced users, if you are a beginner you could ask a friend for help) :
** If you have access to a friends computer for instance, you can use that to create password recovery/bypass media, like a CD or USB stick, read more on http://www.recoveranypassword.com/recover/windows-password-recovery/
** After bypassing the windows logon, install and use The Magical Jellybean Keyfinder, found from http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/ , dig out that product license and write it down on a piece of paper.
- Now that you have your product license key, insert the winXP install disc if you got one with the purchase, else you can borrow them from someone, the borrowed discs should be of version winXP Professional aswell. With CD inserted restart laptop and boot from CD/DVD device, different systems have different keys to enter Boot setup, typically any of the F1-12 keys must be pressed at the early stages of system startup, normally F11 but you may need to feel your way through it. Now that you booted with the setup disc you will recieve easy-to-follow instructions how to proceed.
- Laptop does not have CD/DVD device, or you don't have any winXP discs, and nobody to borrow them from?
Then you will need to install via an USB stick, It must be of size 2Gb or larger, you will also need a secondary computer to prepare the USB stick on. This process might seem long and difficult, and it might be for beginners, but an intermediate-advance user should get through it without much problems.
Search the web for detailed guides how to prep your device for the install, typically write in google "install windows xp from usb drive". You might get the winXP files from microsoft download center, or you might have to download them from 3rd party sites, note that your operating system will still be legit regardless where you got the files from, aslong as you have the product license key.
Hope this have shed some light on your problem. J.D.
