Question about Toshiba Satellite Computers & Internet
If you haven't set up a password reset disk or given yourself a hint to remind you of a password then it's most likely a wipe and reinstall. Can you access other accounts that have been setup on the laptop or get into the admin account via safe mode ?

I'm afraid without the password reset floppy disk youre out of luck. They have a recovery program for Windows XP on the Microsoft website.
Did you setup a hint?

SOURCE: safe mode
safe mode will not reset your password..if you do need to get into safe mode just boot your nb up and continously tap F8 on start up, this will take you to safe mode!!!!!!however when your done here and need to reset your password you will most likely have to run a system recovery-usually this is the only way...reminder if you do run the recovery you will reset your system to factory settings and lose any unsaved data

Safe mode is accessed by hiting F8 repeatedly just after the logo or POST screen. This may or may not allow you to get past your password, depends on if you have an actual administrator account activated.

Reset windows password have been an easy thing nowadays.
Here are the two ways to crack windows xp password.
1.You can go into safe mode (F8 at logo when booting up) and enter as administrator and then go to accounts and change Windows password and that's with XP. I haven't forgotten password for a pc before but can enter any XP pc in safe if the owner hasn't gone into safe mode and designated a password for "administrator" and usually only have a password for the user account but never have tried on Vista or Win7.
2.If that does not work,you can use software to reset the Windows password,my favorite is Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0
