    Let me translate and see if I can get this right. To be in the situation that you are implying. You have to be a new employee, given someone elses job and laptop, unfortunatly for you it has a password. There was no details of the laptop given. Yet you also say that you have lots of your confidential and spl data from your office.

    Query. How did you use the laptop to put your personal upon it in the first place?

My brother gave me his Mecer tower microsoft xp but I don't know the password and he can't remember because he hasn't used it in a long time so he doesn't remeber aswell

One of two ways to solve this -
1. If you have the XP disk, AND a copy of all of the drivers for ALL of the hardware - format hard drive, re-install XP. (note: you will need to know the VALID XP key for install.
2. If you do not have the XP disk, but do have a VALID XP license a copy of XP is available online (illigal to give source here - you will have to find it), AND have all drivers for hardware - download the XP, Burn to CDR, format drive, and re-install XP (using your valid key).

On a side note: XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and therefor will not update, nor will you be able to install SP1, 2, or 3 for XP.

Would almost be better to install an alternative OS, such as Ubuntu.

I want unlock hdd hitachi 1TB, you could hepl me ? thank you

My drive became locked with a password or I forgot my hard drive password. How do I gain access to my data?

Answers from Hitachi : Unfortunately, there is no way to bypass the security password feature of Hitachi hard disk drives. If the password is not known or has been misplaced, Hitachi will not be able to assist in gaining access to the data on the drive.

How can I recover my windows password?

You should probably move the hard drive to another computer to be safe and download the saved files you need. That may be hard to do as sometimes windows will lock you out of the Documents and Settings Directory. You can use Vista though to take ownership of those directories and get your saved information.

I do notice that a lot of people that password their computers are a little sloppy when installing windows though. They kind of skip over the initial user login and password for Admin. Try logging is as Admin and use nothing for the password and see if you can log into the computer. A lot of people just hit enter when they see this screen which makes Admin and user with a blank password.

Accont losted


we have one type of method to solve this problem. but, not regularly.

if you have any other administrator account, you can log in to this and work with your account.


if you did not enter any administrator authentication(password), when the windows xp was installed, you can easily manage this.
press CTRL + ALT + DEL keys simultaneously (two times) and type the username as "administrator". then enter without giving a password.


you can connect your hard disk with any other hard disk. boot through the other hard disk. then you will see your disk drives on the another disk. Try to delete the "SAM" file on your os (C:\windows\system32\). (Only on your hard disk).
then reboot via your hard disk. now, you have no need to enter any username or password. just enter and go to the windows desktop

if it is not possible for you, just go for password recovery software

thank you,

Cant get into my admin or my account forgot both passwords

seems you dont have your password? there are some utilities in the net to be able to get your passwrod. but in case you dont want it that way, you can remove your hard disk and place it in an external hdisk case and use it as external. you can then browse your disk and copy your files... all that you need before you erase them.
