Lost windows password? you can go into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to reset...


Last week when my friend bought a Windows XP installed netbook, he created a complex Windows login password to bolster the privacy of his netbook. Unfortunately, he couldn't remember the spelling of his own password the next day and was unable to use his netbook. I suggested Windows Password Key 8.0 to reset the password and start using his netbook again. Let’s find out more about Windows Password Key 8.0.
Windows Password Key 8.0 is a useful application, which can be used to reset the Windows login password on your netbook with the help of USB flash drive. Windows Password Key 8.0 is compatible with all versions of Windows.

However, your netbook must have minimum system requirements to enable Windows Password Key 8.0 to reset your Windows login password. First, your Windows must be installed in a FAT-16, FAT-32 or NTFS partition and you must also have bootable USB flash drive to reset the password.

You'll need to install Windows Password Key 8.0 on any other Windows PC, which is accesible to you. Once the installation is complete, Windows Password Key 8.0 will launch on the screen.
In the Windows Password Key 8.0 window, you'll need to select the existing Windows Password Key 8.0 image, which is ideally located as a default option under ‘Choose the existing windows password key 8.0’.

Select the option ‘USB Flash Drive’ and insert your USB flash drive in the USB port. After you insert the USB flash drive, select it from the drop down list and click the ‘Burn’ button.

When the ‘burning’ process starts, Windows Password Key 8.0 extracts the ISO image and copies the necessary Windows files to your USB flash drive.

Now you can insert your newly created USB flash drive into your netbook port, and then reboot your operating system. Be sure to change your netbook set up to make it boot from your USB flash drive.

When your operating system boots from your USB flash drive, the Windows Password Key 8.0 will initialize on your netbook screen. You need to select ‘Windows installation to be processed’ and then select the user, whose password you need to reset by typing the number associated with it, followed by the ‘ENTER’ key.

In the next screen, type ‘Y’ followed by ‘ENTER’ to reset a new password.
After you reset a new password, remove the Windows Password Key 8.0 bootable USB flash drive and restart your netbook to log in using your new password.
It is always a good practice to set up a simple password for our windows login. Although we have utility applications like Windows Password Key 8.0 for our rescue, it becomes a tedious task to reset password, especially when you are travelling with important documents on your netbook.

Reset my password on my acer laptop


If you know the current password then click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Under user accounts select change password.

If you forgot the password, turn off the laptop then turn it back on and repeatedly hit the F8 key until you see SAFE Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. You will see a login screen with the Administrator account and the Account of the id that you forgot the password. Select the Administrator account (hopefully it will not be password protected). One you are logged in click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. Select the account for which you forgot the password and then select Remove Password. Reboot your laptop.

My brother put a password on my laptop and now he forgot it


If its a windows XP password for Windows, just restart the computer, then Press the F8 key, and in the boot menu choose safe mode.
In safe mode the built in Administrator account is available.
The Administrator account usually has a blank password and will allow you access to the Users control panel to change or remove the password.
If its Vista, or Windows 7, then its different.
Here is a post with more information and tools:

I forgot my Password to the Login of my Laptop


Have your HP laptop login password forgotten? Do you have another administrator? Have you created Windows password reset disk on your HP computer when it is available? Or whether you have installation CD?

If you have administrator, just change HP login account to this administrator and access HP computer with it. At this time, no matter which account, you can easily change or remove its password on Control Panel.

If you have password reset disk, on Windows login screen after you type incorrect password, there will be a message "Reset Password" prompting you to reset forgotten Windows password with reset disk. Just follow password reset wizard to do.

If you have installation CD, it will help you to restore HP computer or repair computer. But it is still dangerous for us to use it because it will delete some important data on your computer.
In consideration of data safe on computer, Windows Password Genius provides a safe Windows password reset environment WinPE. With it and in such password recovery environment, you will don't need to worry about data lost or damaged.

This is a video showing how to use it.
