Download the Ophcrack LiveCD, burn it to a CD, boot the laptop off it and it will crack the password for you.

    You don't install the LiveCD in Windows. You start up off the LiveCD, it doesn't even load Windows. If you can burn a CD from that machine, you burn the LiveCD image to a CD, then you start the laptop off it.

  • RM Pro Svcs Feb 08, 2009

    Can you get the laptop to boot off of a CD? That's what I'm talking about. You put the CD in, restart the laptop, and it should ask if you want to boot off the CD.



    First step is making the CD though. You may need to use another computer to make the CD.

  • RM Pro Svcs Feb 09, 2009

    The isolinux error you are seeing is telling you there's a problem with the CD you made. That may or may not be the problem.



    The drive on the laptop may not be able to read it. You could try booting from the CD on another computer just to see if the CD is OK. If it is, then you may be stuck, unless you can boot the laptop off a USB drive.



    Another option might be to just wipe the laptop and reinstall Windows since it doesn't have anything you need on it.



  • RM Pro Svcs Feb 09, 2009

    Wiping the laptop has nothing to do with the user accounts on it. If you can boot from the CD, you are booting a completely different operating system that ignores the user accounts.



    You can use a restore CD or Windows install CD to wipe the contents of the hard drive to install Windows, assuming you can get the CD drive to work.

  • RM Pro Svcs Feb 09, 2009

    If you're being asked for a password after you boot from the Windows installation CD, that almost sounds like a BIOS password. If that's the case, there's probably no way around it.



    Are you actually starting the computer from the Windows setup CD?

What is my power on password for a compaq evo N410c labtop?


If you forgot Windows password, you can create a Windows password reset bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset your lost or forgotten Windows password, i have created a bootable CD with the tool Windows Password Breaker and reset my administrator password successfully.

I locked myself out of my labtop and i dont know the password to get back in it


Here's how to reset your password:
  1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up.
  2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
  3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
  4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.
  5. All done, you have recovered the lost password
Hope you'll have it resolved soon :-)

Hello. My Acer laptop is locked and states that only an administrator can get in?


Try logging in with your own username and password. If not try 'Administrator" and leave the password blank. If that doesnt work and you dont know any other usernames or passwords you'll need to bring the laptop to a repair centre and have them use a special disk to access the administrator password. Every copy of Windows origonally has an Administrator account, if you dont know its details then you need to get the password reset.

Locked out of my labtop


If it's a Windows password, then enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8, log in as administrator, from here you can clear any user passwords from the user accounts section. If this is a bios password you will need to contact Dell support directly for the master code to unlock the board.
