Lost admin password

My aunt has an older HP Pavilion that she wants to access, but does not have any of the passwords on it, including the admin password. She does not want to remove the hard drive or boot from a disk. She also does not want to download any kind of software to get the password. Is there any way she can get the admin password? Does she need to boot it into safe mode? If so, then what? I really hope someone can help me out with this

The only way to get the password is to boot from cd and preform a repair of windows and when it says installing devices you need to hit "shift" + F10 it will bring up command window and then you will type "control.exe" (leave quotes off) once there you should be able to access the user manager and change password providing it has windows vista as you say

Locked out of a computer


If you can boot into safe mode,(which should still need a password,so I don't think it will work)
But if you can,just go into the control panel and create a new account with admin privileges,restart in to the new account and transfer all files from old account,then delete the old account.

I cannot access start w/o being logged on to change password


hi,

i assume that you are the admin of your laptop, if so, then you can change your password from command prompt (Click Start-->Run-->type "cmd") OR (press WinKey + R and type "cmd"), press enter

you'll get a command prompt, type the following at the command prompt:

net user <user_name> <new_password>

where the <user_name> is your own username and <new_password> is your NEW password for the system.

Thanks and regards.
