You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :-

SOURCE: im the administrator on my inspiron 1420 dell

Hi assuming it's Windows Vista you have to download Hiren's Boot DVD and boot from it. Under Password & Recovery you will find several programs to remove the password for the Administrator or any other user. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. Thank you :D

SOURCE: have an inspiron 1440 forgot

If you have the restoration disks that either came with your system or have created them per the owners manual. If not, you could use a third part software such as kon-boot which is free to create a boot disk that will bypass the user password.

Dell inspiron 1300 laptop administrator password reset

You have to enter the password to be able to use the computer. There is no way to recover the password. Passwords stop other people from using your computer. If there was a way to bypass it, passwords would be absolutely useless in protecting your computer from unwanted people gaining information about you.

How to get into password protected HP 110-1144NR netbook

The easiest way is contact the Previous Owner since you say you purchased it from them.

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows 7 or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

How can i get into my computer if i forgot the password

Yes, it is possible if you are not using by name administrator account. First press ctrl + alt + del and then appear a samll window and now type administrator as a user and no need to password and then press enter.

When you login in windows now click on start and go to control panel. Choose user accounts and now select your user and then click on it.

It is very easy and safe to change your password now. First remove your previous password and then apply a new password and then take a reboot to access your own account.

I recommended you this advice 100% guaranteed work.

Forgot xp 64 bit Administrator password

Hello there ekj112.

Here's your geek-steer ...


" there a way to use the net user command to change the password without being able to login" == No, the only way via the command-line-interface is if you were logged into the target Windows OS, AND you have administrator privileges. If that's the case, then the syntax is:

net user USERNAME *

"...i have tried all the Linux based password crackers and reseters" == Then I presume you haven't tried "Password Renew (by sala)"? Although I've yet used it against XP 64-bit, I would imagine it will work just as well as it does with 32-bit.

Therefore, please refer to a previous post of mine, and my guess is you'll get your joy back.

Good luck, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.
Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!
