If you can manage to remove the panel of CPU and just remove the battery(button cell) fixed in the MotherBoard& fix it back to it. Before you do this don't forget to off the Main.

How to login xp after deleting a administrator accounts


Try logging in as Guest,or guest,no password.
Then go to Control Panel-User Accounts-New User and re-establish an Administrator User and account settings for it.
Make whatever User accounts you'll need,and then delete the guest account.It's a security hole.
If this helps,please rate my post.
Thanks

Tip

Enabling Administrator Account in Windows 7


In Windows 7, like Windows Vista, when you install the operating system, you are asked to enter a user name which will be the primary local user that will use this system.
Like in Windows Vista, in Windows 7 the built-in Administrator's account is disabled by default. Furthermore, this account is not associated with any password


The new user which is created during the installation is configured to be a member of the built-in Administrators group, and in fact, can be used for any management task. That use is in fact equivalent by all means with the original built-in Administrator account.
However, there may be situations where one would like to use the built-in Administrator account instead of that "new" user. One of these might be when you're building a system for cloning purposes, and would like all cloned machines to be able to use the built-in Administrator's account.
Note that since that account does NOT have a password, enabling it without properly setting a password for that account will open a serious security opening on your system!

To enable the built-in Administrator's account by using the Local Users and Groups snap-in please follow these steps:
Open Local Users and Groups. You can do so by typing lusrmgr.msc in the Start search box or in the Run command and pressing ENTER. Or, you could open Computer Management by right-clicking Computer in the Start menu and selecting Manage.

Expand System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users.
Right-click the Administrator account and select "Set Password

In the"Set Password for Administrator" click "Proceed".

In the"Set Password for Administrator" enter the Administrator's desired password twice, and click "Ok".

Next, enable the Administrator's account. Right-click the Administrator's account and select "Properties".

Un-chek the "Account is disabled" check-box. Click on the "Ok" button.


Administrator's account is now enabled and configured with a password.

Log In password lost


There a couple things you can try.
1.Since the true Administrator is disabled by default, if you only had one
"administrative" user account created and you've forgotten the password
to it, try starting the computer
in Safe Mode. Supposedly this will
enable the built-in Administrator account for the one session. The
default password may be a blank. Get into Safe Mode by repeatedly
tapping the F8 key as the computer is starting up. If this works for
you, create at least a few extra user accounts for emergencies. I
usually create at least three accounts on client machines: one standard
user for every day work, two administrative users for emergencies.

2. Go to this site: http://www.password-changer.com/ download the free demo and this will help you fix the password.

Forgot administrator's password


Hi Reggie,

Please read the entire article before proceeding:

All administrator accounts are created equal, with equal
powers, except that the main adiminstrator account cannot
be deleted and it does not appear on the login (or users)
menu by default.

You do need an alternate administrator account to solve this
problem. You must login to a user account with administrative
privileges in order to access system resources, take ownership
of files and folders, and to change other people's passwords.
(including the built-in administrator account)

Otherwise, what would be the point of any security at all,
if you could bypass it at will.

If you can login to another account with administrator pri'vs,
then follow me. Otherwise you may have to pursue more difficult
options, as explained later.

1) Open up the control panel
2) Open up Administrative tools
3) Open up local security settings
4) Expand Local policies in the LHS folder tree

Check:
Accounts: Administrator Account Status = Enabled
Accounts: Rename Administrator Account = Administrator

this is to make sure that the admin account is enabled,
and has not been renamed. You can double click on these
settings to change them. Is you are for some reason unable
to enable the admin account, you must reboot to safe mode,
where the admin account is always enabled.

Now that you are sure that you have a functioning administrator
account, you must reset the password, since you cannot
retrieve it:


From the control panel, once again open up

Administrative Tools ---->
Computer Management --->
Local users and Groups ---->
Users ----->
Administrator ---->
Right click on administrator ---->
SET PASSWORD

....

This should do it.

N.B.
The administrator account will be re-created, you will loose
1) All settings and preferences
2) Access to any NTFS encrypted files the administrator
has encrypted.
3) Stored network and internet passwords (the administrator's)
4) Personal security certificates.

This procedure is different from simply changing the password,
because you don't know the original, so Windows treats it as a
hostile takeover, That's why you loose access to encrypted files.

If you have trouble starting the computer management Applet,
Run it manually:

START --> RUN --> compmgmt.msc

or

...\WINDOWS\system32\mmc.exe compmgmt.msc

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

Trick:

If you do not have access to an existing account
with administrative privileges, you may be able to hack in
with and old setup disk from Windows 2000, with
no service packs, or at most XP1

The reason is that Windows 2000 did not anticipate nor
respect Windows XP security.

1) Reboot from the 2000 disk, and follow the on screen
prompts to repair the system using the

SYSTEM RECOVERY CONSOLE.

2) Do not proceed to install Win 2000, make sure you
get out before it asks you to format a disk, if you get
there you missed the prompt and you have gone too far,
Reboot and try again.

3) Once you are in the recovery console = DOS like environment
type HELP, and it will give you a list of commands.

You should be able to create a new user account
(with admin or change the admin password privs)

4) The last alternative is to purchase an XP password recovery
utility, which you run from a boot CD.

Good luck

Martin.

Windows xp


depends which password, if you mean the log on password, you have to keep pressing F8 on boot up and get you into start windows with safe mode option. when in click on the administrator account, then go to users, go to your normal account and either delete or change password, then restart pc If you mean administrator account when trying to alter windows set up or you cannot get into an administrator account you will have to reinstall windows from scratch to set up the registry again and allow administrative rights. If you mean the bios pasword you have to remove the cmos battery and clear the cmos itself from which has to be done on the motherboard shorting terminals.
