Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

    I think the best way for you is trying hard to remember the password. If you really cannot remember, you can reset password from another user account with administrator credentials or Do-It-Yourself (DIY) third party recovery tool. Google Windows password seeker orhttp://www.passwordseeker.com maybe can help you.

Iaccidentally locked my laptop and cant log on


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

Getting a blue screen stop error, but cant log


Please try to start from the beginning and reformat the hard drive by shutting down the system with the cd drawer open. Then insert the windows disk and turn on the pc then the drawer closes and when it tells you boot from cd press enter. Then windows will load. It will give you a couple of options. Always choose format partition. Then you should not have any problems. Unless your hard drive is bad.

I reformatted my computer and i cant get drivers


If you have linksys hardware install the cd that came with hardware and get to linksys website and download latest driver. Reformatted cleans drive to zip data and you needed to reload XP to get it going so anything you installed after the system purchase you will have to reinstall.

I cant reformat my hard drive. (Windows XP)


Hi. There are several causes for this type of error. Either your Windows CD is corrupted, hardware is faulty (Motherboard, RAM, hard disk, video card, etc.). You may want to try to reformat your hard drive using another computer first just to isolate if your hard drive is faulty. If you can format it using another computer, try installing windows on that computer.

Cant access files...


Boot up into safe mode, logging in as the Administrator, not your account.

Go into the security settings for the folder and change the permissions. The easiest thing would be to give Everyone full access. Don't forget to promulgate the permissions to the directory tree as well.

Good luck

God Bless
