Question about Dell F3534 Touchpad

1 Answer

No administrator account - can't add or change accounts

I mistakenly added this as a the same as another but it is different because I cannot change user accounts therefore cannot utilize Users from the control panel.

Windows XP Pro SP3
It appears that the Administrator account had been removed then the user, who was an administrator, changed their account to a limited account. Now there is no account with administrator priviledges.

Can anyone help me to get administrator rights back for the one lone account on the system. Or add an administrator account.

    Thank you, I tried that.

    When I start in safe mode there is only one account, the limited user account.

The admin account created originally when xp was loaded should still be there somewhere (hidden), try starting in safe mode to see if the admin account displays then create a new admin account for your use, restart then the new account you created should be displayed.

    xp should not allow the admin account to be removed as one is always needed. Try doing a system restore to see if that helps, back to a time when you know it was working correctly. You may be able to run this in safe mode where you should have more privilages. Try running in safe mode, go to start>all programs>acessories>system tools>system restore

    and choose a date and time when you know there was no problems

I forgot my password and im trying to unlock it


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

Try using the onscreen key board if possible in safe mode. If you have windows xp hit and hold ctrl+alt+delete twice in a row. This will bribg up the hidden admin account. The type Administrator as the user name and laeve the password field blank just hitting enter. Sometimes these hidden accounts are just overlooked. If you can borrow another keyboard or use an old one. You must ad it with the pc off or it will not read it. Sounds like you just need a new keyboard.

After enter password for windows, a black screen comes up and all you can see is the mouse


Are you using Windows 7, there is a separate hidden account called administrator. The easiest way to access it is to go into safe mode. You do this by tapping F8 just after the self test, and before windows starts to load. Once on the start up menu choose safe mode. Click on the administrator account. From there you can change any passwords in the control panel under user accounts. You do not have to know any of the passwords to change them, or you can use utility to delete the lost password.
