There are two things that you can do.


First off... the boot-up password is in the bios. You would have to diable it from the bios section.

NEXT ....



1) click again F8 when booting up and choose "Last Known good Config...." see what happens ... it might solve the problem.


2) take out that hard drive with all your data.... back it up on another system. Place back old hard drive and re-install Windows. With latest updates and anti virus.

Hi,
This may not work as the administrator account maybe password protected too but you can give it a try for nothing.
Boot the computer up as normal, when it gets to the login screen hold down Ctrl and alt and hit the Del key twice, this will change the logon screen, in the top box clear the username and type administrator, then hit the return/enter key.
If it lets you in to the admin account go to the control panel, select user accounts and change or delete your password from there.


Good luck.

Unlock Windows password with Windows built-in Administrator account.

Here's how this admin unlocks forgotten Windows password:
Start your computer and wait for the Windows Login or Welcome Screen. Once it shows, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and then type Administrator in the pop-up username box, but leave the password column blank. Next you could successfully log onto system. The following steps for resetting the forgotten password are quite easy. You can make it from "Start->Control Panel->Users Accounts".

Besides, Windows Password Reset is a great choice .

You have to reset the PC and while booting press F8 until the OS menu shows up, choose start safe mode. When you reach the Login part you will be able to login as an administrator, while you are logged in as Admin change your user password.
Word of advice, change to Windows XP or Windows 7 because Vista is the worst OS I saw. Cheers

Dell inspiron 5150 laptop, reset admin. password.


Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.

Thanks

you can try

in the welcome screen

press CTRL+ALT+DEL let go
press CTRL+ALT+DEL again. And let go.

The old style login screen should come up. Try loging in as

Administrator
and no password unless you have set one. Try without a password.

if you still can't login you can use a cd like this to reset the password

http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/

instructions are over that webpage.

let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks,
Ekse

Cant log on


you will have to press F8 to get into safe mode, then select start windows in safe mode. when in safe mode select the administrator account and then log in on that, then go to your user account and either delete the password or delete your account, all saved docs will still be there in an old folder with your account name if you need to delete the account. restart the pc as normal then you should be able to log on without the need for a password.
