Thanks for posting your question with us at fixya!

1. When you FIRST turn on your PC, start pressing the 'F8' key on your keyboard, until you get a menu. When you see this menu, STOP.
2. Using arrow keys, move up to either "Safe mode with Networking" or Safe Mode".
3. Hit the "Enter" key.
4. The "Administrator" account button will show up on the login screen.
5. If there IS NO PASSWORD (or if you know it), sign into the "Adminstrator" account.

I hope this helps. Let me know how it goes and if it did, please rate my solution! Thanks!

What is the administrator code

To install new software (including games) you must be a system administrator. If you are not a system administrator it will prompt you to login with an administrator account. A user who is considered an system administrator must login. There is an default admin account called "Administrator" and the default password is blank. However it is usually disabled. This means you must have a different user of the computer sign in .

I forgot my microsoft password

se your password hint as a reminder.
  • Have someone with an administrator account on your Surface sign in and change your password for you. (If you have an administrator account and remember the administrator password, you can do this yourself. The account created during Windows setup is an administrator account.)
  • If you've forgotten your local and/or administrator account password, you'll need to reset your Surface back to factory settings. To learn how to reset your Surface from the Windows sign in screen, see Restore, refresh, or reset your Surface

    Inspiron1525 wont let me sign in

    Wait at least a half hour before trying again. That is a common lock out period, though not used in home situations. Ask if someone changed it. The options are not good.

    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.
    • 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

    Can't sign on. IT says password invalid on the domain

    You shouldn't be signing on to a domain. Check your network settings.

    If there is a drop down window when the password screen appears see if you can change the domain. Try hitting CTRL+ALT+DEL and see if it allows you to sign bypassing the domain.

    You need to login as Administrator and create a new user or change the way the existing user is setup. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice at the login screen. Userid = administrator password = (leave blank) If XP Home, boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot then login as Administreator above. To create a new user goto Start / Settings / Control Panel / USer Accounts To change existing user settings goto Start / Run / enter control userpasswords2. Click on Advanced tab then Advanced button. If all fails you can just reinstall windows.

    Want me to sign on as administrator

    Ok.. log out of your current user [not "switch user"] ... then press (CTRL + ALT + DEL) twice, you'll have a place to type "administrator" with a blank password...

    Do whatever you want to do then logout usually and the administrator login will be gone.

    You can use "Hiren's Boot CD" to remove the Administrator Password if it has one...
