What are the administrator's login and passwords


The pc is a GATEWAY E-3400, 2K prof. It's a hand me down from library. Windows login template says pac for login. that must be "public access computer". Can't figure out what kinda security system they put on it. We're just poor folks trying to get more use out of old junk pcs. They said it works, but we just can't get past the windows template sign in page. Should I try the pull out the battery trick? To void passwords?Don't have any boot disk etc.
Thanks for any help

This question is kind of a landmine. What you're asking is 'How do I hack a windows password?' on a donated workstation.

The appropriate way to handle a donated computer, whatever the source, is to reinstall the operating system. Check ebay, or a local 2nd hand computer store for cheap licenses of windows XP. Or, if you're feeling a little adventurous, you can install a free linux based operating system like Ubuntu (ubuntu.com). It's perfect if all you're looking for is something to cruise the internet, email and play an occassional game of solitaire. Google docs or open office are both free, and can take of most MS Office needs.

If you're dead set on hacking this password, there are dozens of people willing to tell you how to do it, and they're only a google search away ;-).

    Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista


    Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

    1st Method:
    The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
    Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
    Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
    Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

    2th Method:
    There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
    Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
