1. Place your Windows CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)
2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”
3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now
5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.
6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”
Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.
7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.
8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”
9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.
10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.
11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.
12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).
13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.

I have a dell Intel desk top an I can't get pass the password lock on front Skreen how to override this


you should know the password to your computer, if you have forgotten the password, try logging in with a different user account and see if you can reset the password for the first one through control panel.

if this does not help, try safe mode.

if neither help, then call 1-877-805-1027 for expert assistance.

I dont remember my gmail password on my phone


Hi Dominique,

Go to www.gmail.com and select "Need help?" and then select I don't know my password. From there you will need to enter your gmail username, or an email address associated with the account to have a password reset link sent to you.

Let me know if this resolves your issue so I can help troubleshoot further,

Thanks,

Do not know my code to get my messages - is there a way to override it ?


The system owner with the access code to mailbox 999 can reset your password. If you lose that one, the dealer can log into the voice mail system and reset MB 999's password.

My daughter cannot remember password. is there anyway to override it or get into the computer to reset it without a disk password reset


Hi,
You can try the below option.
1. If the computer is in a domain, reset the domain user is and log into the computer.
2. If not part of a domain, login using any other user id (if exists) and reset the password for your id. 3. No you are the only single user, then reset the password if you've created any password reset disk. 4. If none of the above works, then the only option is to install the operation system once again. This will not affect any applications installed, if you are not formatting the disk before you install. Just install upon the existing OS.
Once logged into OS, then disable the password option from control panel -> users and accounts. So that it wont prompt for a password while logging int next time.

Please come back and vote for me, if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx

IS THERE A WAY TO OVERRIDE A PASSWORD


What password are you talking about - log in password?
If you are the admin, you can go to User Accounts and remove the check in the Password Required check box. That way you won't need a password to log in.
