Pass Word/ Entrance to system

My son gave me his laptop but has forgot the pass word. We have tried F8 tapping. Outside of buying a new Windows XP Systems Disk is there any other way to get by this Pass Word problem? I don't need his programs, I have programs that I can reload on, like word, excell, etc. I also have a memory stick that I can transfer any documents from my Desk Top computer.

Get pass word


Which Password? Bios Password?Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista?Windows 7?OK,if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've gotto have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops withwindows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do whenyou buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling theOperating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator(hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once thedesktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Forgot password


In case you have problem with your pass restart your computer, log in as administrator (the default pass is blank) and change your account's pass to a proper one, easy for you to remember.

I forgot my pc login pass.


Hi

Don't worry my friend...I'm also quite forgetful...Try boot the computer in safe mode by pressing F8(tap repeatedly during start off immediately when its turned on)...and log onto the administrators account...From there go to control panel and select the user accounts option and change your password form there...Also create a reset disk to avoid problems later on when you next forget the password(which i trust you won't :) )

Good Luck
