Question about HP Compaq Presario 6310US (DA201A#ABA) PC Desktop
You cannot delete or alter the administator password, the only way to do this is to reformat and reinstal windows, but normally when you are asked for the administrator password, you just press enter, unless the password has actually been set when originally installed.

For all intents and purposes, you can't that I am aware of. Essentially you would need a lucky guess. Now, I'm not sure if you intentionally or unintentionally left USB drive (pen drives) off your list, but if you intentionally left them off, then you could potentially use utilities on them to access the system and reset the passwords, but this would seem to break the "without using software" qualifier.

How would someone who works on pc's NOT know the answer to his own question?
Personally I wouldve have even mention default is set to blank, sounds more like a question someone with a stolen pc might ask to me.

There is a program out there floating around that is called Password cracker XP. This is a Linux tool that will find the SAM file and display all the user names and passwords. It will also allow you to change the password for a user.

I can assure you that this is a way. But that's all I'm willing to tell you, but I'm not lying. I just don't want to give out the secret.

HP Tech Spt told me how to do this on a 6310US Desk Top.
Open the case and look at the lower left corner of the MB you will see a jumper for resetting the password.
