If it's your personal (not a network PC) then try admin for both. If that works, then make yourself an administrator account (assuming windows is your operating system).

SOURCE: password recovery

If the password window has come for first time then don't enter any password. Leave the password window blank. In the user name enter Administrator and log on. If this does not help enter administrator or admin in password field. But this should be second option.

My suggestion is that you downgrade from Window Vista to Window XP as till date Windows Vista has lot of bugs relating to security issues.I myself have done that.

Reload the operating system, if you have any hangups during or after installation, it's a hard drive failure.

SOURCE: in restore mode its ask for administrator password

Hi, man. Don’t worry, there are many people forget their admin password or lost it, and there is a popular solution for those who have been locked out by computer. For this solution, what you need is a second computer that can connect to Internet and then freely download Windows Password Recovery 6.0 at http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html With it, you can create a reset CD which can be used to reset Windows admin password without erasing anything.

SOURCE: How do i recover password running windows vista?

For these situations, I recommend:
1. Think hard, was the password tied to something you'd remember by going over common things in your life? Names of family member or important dates that only you would know are common.
2. Try a password recovery program - http://www.recoverlostpassword.com
3. The least desirable option is reinstalling Vista from the disc.

I dont know the user name and paswordh how can i reset and put my own its a gateway solo9500


I assume you are talking about a user name & password for Windows XP or Vista. You might be able to gain access with the user name Administrator and either no password or 'admin' or 'administrator' as the password. If this does not work, then try a program such as OPHCrack (http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/) to search for a user name and password on the PC.

My Laptop was switched off from last few day, when i started it recently it ask for some password. I don't know what was the password, can you please help me out?


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and its difficult to break into its password.

Take care..

I forgot my user account password and cannot even get into my computer. How do I get into the control panel administrator account?


Follow the steps below to quickly find the administrator password on your computer!

1. Try leaving the password blank. More often than not, the Administrator password doesn't exist at all! Just press Enter without typing anything when asked for it.

2. Enter the password to your account. Often times, depending on how Windows XP was setup on your computer, the primary user account will also be the administrator user account.

3. Try to remember your login password. If you installed Windows XP on your computer yourself, you probably set the administrator password during the Windows XP installation process. If that's true, you might be able to make really good guesses at what the password might be.

4. Have another user enter his or her password. If there are other users that have accounts on your Windows XP computer, one of them may be setup with administrator access.

5. Recover Windows XP administrator password using a password recovery tool. Password recovery tools are software programs reset Windows XP password without reinstalling the OS.

6. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This is a last resort option. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch. If you're just curious about your administrator password, I wouldn't suggest this extreme solution.

However, if you're needing the windows password to access diagnostic tools and this is your last effort to save your PC, performing a clean install will work. Keep in mind that it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.
