Ask for the password hint that is always asked when you enter a Windows password or go to Safe Mode and you can sign on as administrator. If you never knew the password then you will have to reinstall Windows. Steve Medley

I seem to not be able to get logged in..


During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.
hope this helps you

Forgot the password


Hold F8 on boot up, and boot into Safe Mode. There will be an Administrator account, which you can use to reset your account password.
If somehow the Administrator account is disabled, you can use alternative methods like: this, this and this.

Windows xp pro logon error message "unable to log you on because your account has been locked out"


Hey!
If your computer is a part of a business network, you should contact the network administrator so he/she would setup or reconfigure your user account correctly.

If it's a home computer, you'll have to log on as Administrator to unlock your account. To do so:
  1. Click Start -> Log off (user name).
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice.
  3. Type Administrator in the user name and fill in the Administrator account's password. Leave blank if there isn't any.
  4. Once logged in, Click Start -> Run...
  5. Type in: LUSRMGR.MSC and click OK.
  6. Double-click on Users folder.
  7. Double-click on your locked user account.
  8. Uncheck "Account is disabled" and click OK.
  9. Close "Local Users and Groups" window.
  10. Click Start -> Log off Administrator.
  11. Login to your user account!
Note: If you don't have access to the Administrator account (because you don't have the password), please do tell and I'll give you the instructions on how to reset it.

GOOD LUCK!
Pelu.

Password forgotten


Depending on other things that you have set up, you may be able to log in as the "Administrator"
Try the following.
  • On the login screen press CTRL+ALT++Delete
    You should see a login that asks fro your username and password.
  • Enter "Administrator" as the user name.
  • Leave the password blank.
If you have not assigned a password to the system administrator account, this will get you in.
Then you can go to users in the control panel and re-set the password on your other account.

Log on to windows xp pofessional


you can log on as an administrator (if it is available) with pressing two times of CTRL + ALT + DEL key. some times the default administrator name have no passwords. so, you can try to enter without a password. then you will create another user name as your own.

If you cant logon with the administrator, just u can go for password reset or recovery disk to break that.

you go to www.password-reset.com or www.lostpassword.com/windows.htm

thank you.
