According to me it is not possible to reset administrator password by using user account. So you should reset administrator password either by using manual methods or by using automated software (such as stellar phoenix password recovery software).

SOURCE: Lost Admin or system password for Dell Vostro 1700.

First off is there two passwords one for bios one for gaining access to the O/s ?

If its a system startup password basically you need to take the battery out for a minute and replace ( Easier to do on desktops )
or Flash the bios can't promise that would work or be easy on a laptop either. Would have to google that.

SOURCE: i forgot my admin password and when computer boots

Hello there cimaronw_tc_

This reply is composited from a couple different draft-stage "Tips & Tricks" articles I'm in the middle of developing. Given your (and so many others) dilemma, I don't have the heart to NOT offer this ad-hoc version in the meantime.

You are refering to your Windows password(s), correct?

parrotheadpc's solution is a spot-on MECHANICAL method to solve your dilemma. However, just in the case you're a bit skiddish about poking around in there, here's an alternative SOFTWARE method. BOTH will work, it's your call ...


There exist several FREEWARE software tools whose sole function is to access/modify Windows operating system (OS) passwords (aka password resetters). They have in common the REQUIREMENT of being run from a WinPE/BartPE/Live based CD booted environment. In other words, the tool CANNOT be run from within the normally booted Windows OS it's going to work on.

Moreover, just as there are many password resetters to choose from, there are also many FREEWARE choices of these bootable CD's necessary to "host" them. Most are designed for the purpose of performing system recovery tasks (i.e., fixing troubled PC's and salvaging data). In this case I'm going to recommend "Hiren's Boot CD". Hiren's (and many others) include more than one of these password resetters to choose from. However, my preference and recommendation is for one called "Password Renew" (by sala).

NOTE: You having to use this method is truly a blessing in disguise. Your bonus for being prompted by this little password problem of yours, is that you'll be left with an invaluable tool you'll likely be relieved to have many times over in the furture. In fact, you should accomplish the following even if you DON'T NEED to "this time", becuase the BEST time to have a disk such as this, is BEFORE you NEED it.


  1. Download "Hiren's Boot CD" (select latest version, then click the download link).
  2. Extract/unpack/unzip/decompress (<-choose your term, they all mean the same thing) the disk image file "Hiren's.BootCD.#.ISO" located within the archive file "" you just downloaded (where # = version).
  3. Burn this disk image to CD using whichever capable disk image burning software (e.g., Nero, Roxio, etc.) you may have. Don't have one? Then download and install the very capable, yet lightweight FREEWARE "imgBurn", then refer to the following burn instructions.
Using imgBurn, burn the extracted disk image "Hiren's.BootCD.#.ISO" to CD/DVD (preferably a CD due to the small file size):
  1. Insert a blank disk into your disk burning capable CD/DVD drive.
  2. Launch "imgBurn", then select "Write image file to disc".
  3. Browse for and select the above "Source" .ISO file.
  4. Ensure the applicable disk burner drive is selected as "Destination" (because you could have more than one).
  5. Click the burn icon.
  6. When burning completes, close "imgBurn".
Congratulations! You now have a Live system-recovery boot disk ready for use whenever it's needed.

TIP: From now on, by making known to tech-helpers you have this CD available, you potentially bust wide-open a whole range of diagnostic/recovery options they/you wouldn't have otherwise.


Only you know your level of geek-ability, and the degree to which the following may (or may not) apply to you:
  • This disk contains many tools that if used carelessly has the potential of inadvertantly causing damage/data-loss to your PC. On the other hand, you need not be fearful of it.
  • You're best limiting use to only the tool(s) for which you may have need of at the time, paired with a bit of proper homework, and/or under the direction/guidance of someone comfortable in its use. In a nutshell, don't go "wanderlusting" around, rapid-fire clicking things hastily or thoughtlessly. Rather, carefully read all the available introductions, notifications, popups, alerts, and other textual guidances, and you should be just fine.
  • The benefits of having this disk tremendously outweigh the potential risks. Like so many things in life, know your limitations and have a sober respect for those things which can be potentially dangerous, yet equally essential and pleasing (e.g, electricity, money, love, ***, etc.).
  • Finally, even if YOU never plan on using this disk, the next tele-tech, personal geek-helper, and even skilled field tech may very well have need of it ... and thank you for it.
  1. Ensure the disk is in your CD/DVD drive.
  2. Reboot system [ensure your BIOS boot-order is configured to boot FIRST from your CD/DVD drive].
  3. At the "Hiren's Boot CD" menu, select "Start Mini Windows XP".

  1. Launch (if it isn't already) "BootCDWinTools" located both on the desktop and within the "Start" button menu.
  2. "Menu" > "Passwords/Keys" > launch "Password Renew"
  3. Select the target Windows OS.
As you can see, you have a choice of three actions:
  1. "Renew existing user password" = Resets/changes the existing password for any chosen account/user.
  2. "Create new Administrator user" = Creates a new account/user, with administrator priviledges, using whatever name/password you choose to enter.
  3. "Turn existing user to Administrator" = Gives administrator priviledges to any chosen EXISTING account/user (do NOT choose "Administrator" or "Guest").
Given your situation, action 1 is appropriate. After you've entered a new password for the "Administrator" user account, click "Install" to execute it.

Quit "Password Renew", then reboot (making sure not to boot up from the CD this time).

Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how well this helped you,
  • if you have any further questions,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.
Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!
Via-con-Dios and Godspeed -- Geekinator (aka Craig).

SOURCE: dell inspiron 5150 laptop, reset admin. password.

Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.

Don't understand how to set password. please help

Plug the router into the power socket and configure you own machine to obtain IP address automatically. Load up Internet explorer and type in http:/ which is the local address of your router. You should then get a password screen. Enter default user name and password and it will take you to the configuration screen. The full IP address and user name and password are dependant on which model you have. See list below From there you need to read the instructions very carefully and match it with the information provided by your ISP.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe
