Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Before you try the suggested solution i'll recommend you to backup the data on the hard drive by attaching it with another PC as slave drive.
Now follow the procedure--

  1. Go into safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeatedly as the computer starts up. You will be given a choice on which "mode" you'd like to start Window in. Choose Safe mode. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes). You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrator's account and will be able to reset the password. Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset Password
  2. Just start the computer in safe mode and then click change user accounts and remove the password on that account.
  3. Press F12 and ctrl at the same time to unlock...
  4. If u r able to get a bootable cd than simple boot from that cd and remove your admin password
  5. Attach your HDD to different Computer and browse through your disk then do the following task

    Rename your SAM File located in \windows\system32\config\SAM to SAM1
    Copy SAM from \windows\repair\SAM and paste it in \windows\system32\config\SAM
After this you'll be able to start the PC without any password. If not then i'll suggest you to install a fresh copy of Windows XP by erasing the previous Operating System.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks Rylee

Cant remember my pc owner password downloaded a vista start menu on xp now cant switch users without owners password


ok so what you do is,turn of the pc and turn on, while your pc is starting up when the screen is black and has the flashing bar keep pressing F8 until it askes you if you want it to start up in safe mode, say yes. then when it gets to the log in screen it should say "administrator as one of your users click on it it should not have a password. then you need to go to the start menu>run...>type in "cmd">you should come up with a black box. now type in these exact words "net users", press enter. now type in "net user "put the name of the user you want here WITH the apostrophes" * (make sure to put the star there!) it should ask you to type a ew password for this user, now type what ever you want as the password, press enter. DONT FORGET IT!!! now close the box and restart you computer and use that password you put to log on to the user!!! hope this helps!!! =P
