Getting past the password on the wiondows screen for XP is easy if you never set an admin password ...

start your computer in safemode by pressing either the f8 f10 or even f12 key on Boot depending on your system.

log in using admin account

go to control panel select users and reset password

other then that I can point you in a few backdoor directions please let me know if that works for you

good luck

SOURCE: windows vista, lost password

There is a nice program written in Linux at: http://www.pcloginnow.com that you can download and burn onto a CD! Boot that CD in and you can reset your password for both Administrator and all other users! Hope that helps!

I forgot my login administrator password for my dell xps window 7


Anonymous,
If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.
Thank You,

I put in a password for the main Administrator of the computer like 5 days ago. I thought I remembered the password but when I type it in it won't accept it. Is there a way to bypass that password?


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 third party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your login password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html
