  5. Type: net user Administrator *
    • Type: net user (any account on that list) *
  6. It prompts for a password. Enter one, then enter it again when prompted to confirm.
  7. Log on as 'Administrator' with your new password.
  8. Edit: Please note that this might not work on a LIMITED account.
Method 2.

  2. Mount the Windows drive (or volume with 'Documents and Settings' in it

  3. When the progress bar says 'Installing Devices', press Shift-F10 to get a command window
  4. Type NUSRMGR.CPL to get the User Accounts control panel and change what you like.
Method 6.
  1. Pull the hard drive from the machine
  2. Install it in a drive enclosure
    • OR plug it into another machine's IDE/SATA/SCSI/(whatever it is) port and give it power
  3. Boot up with that second machine's normal boot drive as 'Administrator' and access or change permissions on any files on the drive you like.
  4. Put the drive back in its original case.
Method 7.
  1. Search Google for OPHCRACK (OPHCRACK live cd for bootable disk)
  2. Download it
  3. Install it (or if it's live cd use an iso program to burn it like WinIso or NERO)
  4. Run the program and choose import from local sam (check youtube for more instructions.)

I forgot my power-on password on hp compaq nc6400,is it possible to clear the pass?


Hello,
Sorry to hear about your issue.Unfortunately power-on password on notebooks if forgotten can be unlock only at Hp repair center or any authorize repair center.It will be a little expensive fix.

Thankyou

Compaq presario r 30000 need to bypass power on password    password is not working . need to restore to factory setting


Power On The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC. If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty. Drive Lock The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password cannot be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.
