Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I forgot the pass word to my user account and i lost my back up cd
You should actually have 2 accounts. One is called Administrator and appears when you start your operating system in safe mode. It has no password by default so you should still be able to access it.
Restart your computer and keep hitting 'F8' until you're prompted with a menu. Select something along the lines of 'Start Windows In Safe Mode' and Windows will load. Just login to the administrator account and remove the password.
It might also be a good idea to put a password on the admin account and keep it somewhere safe.
Keep in mind though, by removing the password, some of your settings will be reset.
Let me know how you get on.
If this works for you, please rate my FixYa thanks.
