Cant access the administrator

Hi Purchased an acer laptop second hand from someone, I tryed to change the admin name and the password and thought i had done it sucessfully. After i logged out i tryed to log back in with my password and user name and it denied me access. I then tryed the Old Passwiord that the previous owner had used and it still would not allow me access.

Can anyone advise me?

Hello.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

I cant get out of click user name screen in win xp home.there is no user icons. what do i do. restarting comp does not work? its a acer aspire 5000


The reason there is no user icons is the system either only has one user name associated with it or Fast User Switching is turned off. You can try to boot into safe mode and login as Administrator, but that may or may not be password protected as well. Chances are you will have to boot into repair mode and login as admin and try to change the username and password on the system to gain access.

I bought a second hand laptop and can't change the password


Use ERD commander download it HERE

Use the locksmith function to reset the admin password

You will need to reboot twice, if you cant see the administrator on the screen you will need to boot up in save mode and see if you can access the PC and then created a new account with Admin rights.

Ibought a second hand acer 5610z from a colleague he cant remember admin password i cant change user name i can access computer but i want to change the admin/owners name


There is a way of resetting the administrator password.
You need to use a so-called 'emergency boot cd' which uses a little piece of software to check and reset the password on the machine.

Two of those tools can be found here:
http://ebcd.pcministry.com/
and
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080526.zip

give it a go.

If still unsuccessful, try contacting Acer for the Restore cd/dvd if you don't have it, and do a clean reinstall of the machine. Or use a Windows XP OEM disk of the same kind (Home/Professional) and use the OEM key on the sticker on the bottom of the PC to do a clean reinstall. The last possibility doesn't install all drivers, so you'll have to download and install them from the Acer website. Don't forget: no drivers = no internet connection on the pc, so first of all download the drivers, put them on a USB stick or cd, and then reinstall the machine...
