EXCELLENT service CD for technicians - and in works in XP, Vista, and Windows 7.

SOURCE: I forgot my administrator password

What you need to do is to reset administrator password. I recommend you a third part utility so that your can reset your password without erasing anything.

1. Login to a computer that can link to Internet. Download <a href=http://www.passwordunlocker.com>Windows Password Unlocker 4.0 </a> and decompress it on that PC. Note that: there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD.
2 Get out the newly created CD and insert it to the locked computer.
3 re-booted the locked computer and then followed the process of instructions. Just a few steps, the old password was removed.'''
4 Setting new password:
Step one: Open the "Control Panel"
Step two: Click the "User Account "
Step three: Select the account you wanna to set a new password.
Step four: Click "changing Account " and "set up password", then fill out the form as listed. Click "Create Password".

If you forgot windows xp password, you can reset it by several ways, for example, use the default administrator account if you forgot Windows XP password, if your use windows vista or windows 7, you can use windows xp password reset disk or password recovery tools. IT is easy.

If you don't get into safe mode you need to reboot and try again,

Once it starts hope in safe mode , it should display a user called Administrator, and hopefullt the password has not been set for this use, if you get in , goto control panel users and change the password.

Forgot password for my laptop compaq armada 1750 notebook. I treid going in threw safe mode but it still asked for password. I tried going in as guest but it said account has been disabled.PLEASE...


You can't enter the laptop until it has Guest Account Enabled. It is surely disabled. And for that Forgotten Password, try to remember that do you have any other user on that laptop. If yes, then log into on behalf of that user and change the password of yours by accessing the User Account Page in the Control Panel. This way you need not have to remember the Password of that account. And if you don't have any other administrator, then try a Hard Reset. You can do it by De-attaching every internal and external Attachable part of the Laptop.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

I forgot my administrator password


I'm afraid without the password reset floppy disk youre out of luck. They have a recovery program for Windows XP on the Microsoft website.

Did you setup a hint?
