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 8.0to 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.
There is plenty of software for windows password recovery available online. You can follow this 5 easy steps to reset your forgotten password: 1. Enter a computer that can link to Internet. Download Windows Login Recovery and install the software on that computer.
2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions.
3. Eject the created CD/DVD and insert it into the locked computer.
4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's BIOS setting to make it boot from CD drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password.
Go to Control Panel and User Accounts. See if it will let you change the type of account you have to administrator or if you can creat an new administrator account. If that doesn't work log off and try logging on as Admin or admin (try both) and leave the password window blank. See if you can log in under admin and then change your current user account to administrator. You also don't have to run the ISP software to get on the net. You can change the settings to your network adapters manually without software. Problem here is you might have to be an administrator account to do that also.
Login means that you have given a password. And have forgotten it. If it is your personal laptop, then you must be remembering the Administrator's password. If yes, then login as Administrator and delete the account that is posing the problem. And create a new one, even if with same name.
If you are not the administrator then you have problems. Ask the Administrator to do the needful, ie, give you a new password.
If all fails, then reinstall Windows and dont create accounts and use passwords.
When you get to the log on screen, press the ctrl+alt+del combo twice. You should get another log on screen, change the user name to administrator, all lower case. leave the password blank and see if you can log on. Most people leave the administrator password blank...? If that gets you in, go to control panel, user accounts and change the password on your user account. Log off as administrator and log back in on your regular user name with the new password. Hope that works!
Log into your computer as administrator to do this. Most likely the password is Administrator, Admin or something like that and the password will be either blank or the same as the user name 'Administrator' or 'Admin'. Once logged in as administrator you can change the computer passwords and users accounts.
