    Then you have a password .. the only way you may get around that is if you start up in safe mode and try logging in under the Administrator account and "hope" that there is no password. You can then goto the control panel and user accounts and clear/reset the password .. if there is a password on all the accounts .. let me know .. I can direct you to a utility that can assist with that problem

    Can you get in under safe mode?

    So when you try to get into safe mode and access the Administrator account it is asking for a password?

    Finally .. here is another way

    A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like AcceptingEULA, etc.

    B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it andpress “R” to run the repair.

    C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.

    D.
    After a few minutes setup will restart your system and when it
    restartsdon’t press any key when it shows “Press any key to continue…”
    otherwise Setupwill start from the beginning. Don’t press any key and
    setup will resume whereit left.

    E. Now it’ll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with afew details in left side.

    F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows “Installing devices“, press+F10 keys in your keyboard.

    G. It’ll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press .

    H. It’ll open the same “User Accounts” window which you see in Control Panel.

    I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

I can't signon


Sign on to what? Your computer? If you ever could "sign in" and not now, possibly your user profile became corrupted. It is not too hard to create a new user profile. My instincts are that this is not the problem, however.

Are you trying to log in to your account or some other person's account. The last user of the computer typically has their log in screen retained. Check USER ACCOUNTS on the computer via the control panel. Can anyone else log in? Has an administrator assigned a password to you computer account?

If you can not sign on because you set up a password and can not recall it, you likely would have to use a password recovery disc.

A remarkable number of times, if there is a user name and password, the user fails to log on because they either type their password in as their user name or the are using capitals and the password was lower case. And, of course, to sign in, you use your user name and your password. If this is a home system, you may not even have a password on the system and the problem may be something else.

It would be helpful to know the computer manufacturer and model number and operating system when addressing these questions.

Or it's a bit of a read

Passwords add a level of security to your computer. When sharing a computer with others, your customized settings, computer programs, and system resources are more secure when you assign a password to your logon name or user account name. The steps to perform this task differ depending on whether your computer is a member of a network domain or is part of a workgroup (or is a stand-alone computer). My computer is on a domain You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure. Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password. My computer is not on a domain If no password has been assigned to the user's account, a password will need to be created before it can be changed. For information about creating a password, click Related Topics. The steps to perform this task differ depending on the type of user account you have. If you have a computer administrator account Open User Accounts in Control Panel. Click your account name. Click Change my password. In Type your current password, type your current password. In Type a new password and Type the new password again to confirm, type your new password. You can also enter descriptive or meaningful text in Type a word or phrase to use as a password hint to help you remember your password. Click Change Password. If you have a limited account Open User Accounts in Control Panel. Click Change my password. In Type your current password, type your current password. In Type a new password and Type the new password again to confirm, type the new password. You can also enter descriptive or meaningful text in Type a word or phrase to use as a password hint to help you remember your password. Click Change Password. Notes A user with a computer administrator account can create and change passwords for all users on the computer. Users with limited accounts can create and change their own passwords, as well as create their own password hints. If a user with a computer administrator account changes the password for another user, that user will lose all EFS-encrypted files, personal certificates, and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources. Notes To open User Accounts, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts. For more information about user accounts, click Related Topics. Related Topics


click start control panel user accounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can make yourself the administrator of your computer there which will give you all rights to change whatever you want on this computer
