Why do you want someone's account anyway?

1) contact the seller to get the password. It's common that people forget to include the password to computers on eBay, just ask them. If they don't give you the password, then start up in Safe mode (F8 during boot up) and try to log into the Administer account. If that doesn't have a password on it, you can then go in and change other accounts' passwords and such.

2) As you just got someone elses computer, why not just put in an XP disk and reinstall? If you don't have a disk, the computer might have an installation/recovery partition on it that will let you reinstall Windows without a disk.

There are other ways out there. Try googling "bypass Windows password" and you will get a lot.

Forgotton pasword N150

Reset disk or admin password may help you reset Windows password without software. But those cannot guarantee 100% reset for all password problems. Personally I will still choose software to reset Windows password. Because normally that will be easy and effective. And want to safe software you can consider Anmosoft Windows Password Reset Windows Password Reset Software

Password has been forgotton, now it wont start up, please help, thanks

You can reset a lost or forgot Windows password with 4 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Breaker.

4. Re-install. Will lose data.

I have forgotton the password my laptop

Hi, Danny.

There is a "hidden" Administrator account.

If you boot your laptop in Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly), you should be able to login to the computer with the Administrator account (no password).

Then, go to Control Panel - User accounts and reset any of the passwords.

However, if you are referring to the boot password (the password to "unlock" your computer), remove the bottom of your laptop and remove the round, silver CMOS battery for 10 minutes and reinsert.

Hope this helps.
