You can search for a password boot disk which will disable the administrator password.

There are dozens of these types of programs but one program I recommend is windows password reset 6.0
http://www.resetwindowspassword.com

Download the iso file and burn it to a disk to create the boot disk, that simple.
Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive, insert the CD and it would boot then just disable the password and restart.
Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

You do need a little tool called NT Passwords which has to be burned to a CD after unzipping it. You can use tools like Nero Burning Rom to burn the ISO file. The tool works with Windows 2000 and XP only, no Vista support yet. Boot your system from CD and you should see a prompt that asks for user input. The first step would be to select the partition of your Windows installation. After that the program asks for the path to the Windows registry, this depends on your version. For xp it would be “windows/system32/config”, for Windows 2000 “winnt/system32/config”.
Just press enter in the next dialog which will lead to the password reset options. Press enter again because choice [1] “Edit User Data and Passwords” is what we want.
Enter the username that you want to change the password from, remember it is case sensitive. You will be prompted to enter a new password. If you want you can change the passwords for other accounts as well or leave the program by hitting “!”, then “q” to quit and Y to accept the changes.

I forgot my password for my home computer. Is there away to unlock my computer? If so can you help?


Restart 1. Before the Windows Logo Screen press F8 and select "Safe Mode" 2. Log in as administrator (usually no password required for it) 3. Go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Change an account -> Select your account -> Remove password. 4. Reboot and let normal startup 5. Set a new password once you log in.
Cheers!

Forgot password, window xp home edition, how to by pass


Here is a little trick to use that may or may not work:
Start the computer in safe mode and log on as administrator. It's surprising how many people set up their XP computers and password protect their profile, but forget to password protect the administrator account. Once in, you can change your password in your own account.

Systemax Laptop Need Restored


Are you talking about the operating system admin password, or the bootup CMOS settings password(s). If it is windows, you can find the administrative password by downloading one of the freeware utilities at this link:

http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm

If it is the CMOS password, you can reset it by removing the coin battery on the motherboard on the laptop (this can be *very* tricky depending on the laptop make/model)
