Compag laptop forgotten password


That depends on Operating system, if it is in vista please repair the OS it will get reset...
If it is in XP follow below steps
1. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)
2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.
8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”
9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.
10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.
11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.
12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).
13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.

Hope you will succeed...

How to remove the Administrator Password?


There are three methods to reset the Administrator passwords;

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}1stMethod:

The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we installWindows, it automatically creates an account “Administrator” and sets itspassword to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then trythis:

Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ++keys twice and it’ll show Classic Login box. Now type “Administrator” (withoutquotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and youshould be able to log in Windows.

Now you can reset your account password from “Control Panel -> UserAccounts“.

Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show thisin-built Administrator account in Login screen.

====================

2nd Method:

Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recoverforgotten password by using “Reset Disk“. If you created a Password Reset Diskin past, you can use that disk to reset the password. To know more about it,please visit following links:


http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q306214

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q321305


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}====================

3rd Method:

If the above mentioned tricks doesnt work, then try following trick which isactually a loophole in Windows XP Setup and a big security hole:

A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like AcceptingEULA, etc.

B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it andpress “R” to run the repair.

C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.

D. After a few minutes setup will restart your system and when it restartsdon’t press any key when it shows “Press any key to continue…” otherwise Setupwill start from the beginning. Don’t press any key and setup will resume whereit left.

E. Now it’ll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with afew details in left side.

F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows “Installing devices“, press+F10 keys in your keyboard.

G. It’ll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press .

H. It’ll open the same “User Accounts” window which you see in Control Panel.

I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

Enjoy......
