How to Reset Windows Password with Default Admin Password?


The Windows operating system allows you to assign a password to each user account. This provides privacy to different users on one computer. Each user is allowed to set up his own environment and settings to maintain personal files. The difficultly comes when a computer is not functioning correctly and needs to be put into safe mode, but a password is not available. Creating a disc on Windows permits you to <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/6-windows-password-recovery-solutions.html">reset Windows password</a>, get access to your locked computer and replace the forgotten or lost password. <br /> Let us discuss the method of <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/windows-password-recovery-tool.html">Windows password recovery</a>, if you have access to any of the account with administrator rights or you have not assigned a password to the account with username administrator. Administrator is the default account created in the Windows when it is installed. This has a blank password by default.<br /> start your system to reset the Windows login password. If classic login dialog box appears, write the user with administrator privilege if you know any of them, type its password and press enter to login. Otherwise, type administrator in place for the username and press Enter. If you are successful to login, open the Start menu and click Control Panel to open it. Open the user account and change the password of the desired account. Restart you system to login your account with the changed password. <br /> If your logon screen is Windows XP style, administrator user will not be shown on the logon screen. You have to boot in Safe Mode. Restart your system and press F8 key to display the boot options. Choose the Safe Mode option and press enter to boot. Windows skips loading many drivers. Administrator account is shown in the logon screen. Click it to login. After the Windows desktop is shown, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. Change the password of your account.<br /> Well, still can not successfully solve your Windows password recovery trouble? You'd better take use of a third party software. As is known that <b><a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/windows-password-recovery.html"> Windows Password Unlocker</a></b> is considered to be a professional and appreciated Windows password recovery tool with 100% recovery guarantee and friendly interface.

All of my windows XP user accounts were deleted except for one limited account. The laptop only stays on a couple minutes at the time. Video and audio is great when I can keep it on. Also have new battery....


Access the Administrator's account and create another account or do the necessary changes, like virus scanning, driver updating, etc..etc.. To access the Administrator's account in Windows xp, once the system boots upto the windows logon screen (where you are going to type in your password), press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice, the classing logon box will pop up, there type in "Administrator" and username and leave the password blank and press Enter. (If you had changed the administrator's password, use that one)

If you need further help, let me know with specific details.

Good luck.

I try loging on to my windows but the log on screen dont allow me enough space to put in the letters to my password how can this be fixed


If you Windows is XP, try this, when you reach the logon screen, move the mouse cursor on the blank screen and click once, now press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice on the keyboard, type in your username and try with the password. If still it doesn't allow, then type in "Administrator" on the username box and press enter, leaving the password blank. Most systems has no admin password, so if it's same with your's you'll be able to do that and you'll be allowed to login a the administrator. Once you are logged in, go to control panel and change the password of your user with a shorter one. You can now log-off from the administrator's account and login to your account with the newly created password.

Good luck.

How do i unlock my computer if i forgot my username and password


As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:
1st Method:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2th Method:
Windows password reset software:
for example:Windows Password Reset. It is easy and convenient to use.
