If no access through windows then it has to be thru. the bios. it is not a good thing to setup admin. account through windows. usually the password gets scrambled through time and use of the computer likely by bugs or hackers...

Press F-8 at boot to get into the options and try accessing the account from safe mode. If that fails, your system has problems, and I hope that you have saved a recent restore point for system restore.

Unlock code password


Please be more specific about which unlock code you need. If you can not sign into your windows account; you may be able to get into your computer using the built in 'Administrator' account. Restart your machine, and hold F8 while it loads. You should get a black and white menu asking if you'd like to start windows normally or enter into safe mode. Choose one of the safe mode options, and log in with the Administrator account.
If you can not get the menu to show up, try unplugging/turning off your machine while windows loads, and then restarting it, it will pop up saying that windows was unable to start correctly, and will ask you what you want to do. Safe mode will be one of the options under that menu as well.
If the built in administrator account option does not work, try going into 'Safe Mode With Command Prompt'.
In the command prompt; we will create a new user for you.
In the command prompt, type 'net user *NEW_USERNAME* *NEW_PASSWORD* /add ' , obviously *NEW_USERNAME* should be the username you want, and *NEW_PASSWORD* should be the password you want.
Then, type in 'net localgroup Administrator *NEW_USERNAME* /add', which will add the account you just created as an administrator. Restart the machine, and this account should show up as an option to log in with the username and password you just set.

How can i recover my administrator password on windows xp if i forgot it


You could do the following; when you boot up, the screen will tell you to press ENTER if you want to get into the operating system RESTORE MODE. When you set up your system you will have saved configuration settings, and hopefully, you would have carried out a number of saved "BackUp's" of your HardDrive as you used your computer. If you did, you can carry out a 'Go Back To A Previous Setting'. You will lose any files you created since that previous time but it does get you back into your drive. Did you not create an Administrators Password BackUp Disc? If you did use that. Good Luck. George

Change XP Password


I generally don't like telling people how to change passwords because they can go doing it to other people but for some people this is a life saver.

First of all you will need access of a account on the same computer. Unfortunately I haven't found a way to do it without going onto xp. If you don't have any other accessable accounts then try the administrator account unless it's in use as your account. If you can't see follow the instructions below. If you have got access skip this group of instructions and go to the next steps.

Get into administrator account:
1.) When starting the computer, press F8 continuesly until you see a black screen with writing saying how would you like to startup windows.
2.) Go to safemode with command prompt and click enter until you see the bootup screen(windows logo...).
3.) It should have the administrator account along with the one that you have locked. Go into the administrator account and if there is a password on that you'll have to know it from the company that gave you the computer because they generally put a password on it.

Change Password:
Once you're in the account you'll see a black screen with writing.
1.) type in net user.
It will come with a display of user names.
2.) With exactly the same format as on the screen(Uppercase/Capitals), type the users name after net user and a star as a new word after the name(e.g. net user Tommy *)
3.) Just type in the password you want to change it to and confirm it by typing it again.

Once you're finished just type shutdown /r and it'll reboot like windows normally does.

Please tell me if this was useful.

Click Administrator to enter that account and click Yes to start running on safe mode, after loading go to control panel and click user accounts. Click create a new account and type the name of the new account and click next. Now pick an account type select administrator then click create account. Restart your computer and when you prompted on your user accounts click the admin account that you made and you have the admin account have a nice day.

Windows xp pro logon error message "unable to log you on because your account has been locked out"


Hey!
If your computer is a part of a business network, you should contact the network administrator so he/she would setup or reconfigure your user account correctly.

If it's a home computer, you'll have to log on as Administrator to unlock your account. To do so:
  1. Click Start -> Log off (user name).
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice.
  3. Type Administrator in the user name and fill in the Administrator account's password. Leave blank if there isn't any.
  4. Once logged in, Click Start -> Run...
  5. Type in: LUSRMGR.MSC and click OK.
  6. Double-click on Users folder.
  7. Double-click on your locked user account.
  8. Uncheck "Account is disabled" and click OK.
  9. Close "Local Users and Groups" window.
  10. Click Start -> Log off Administrator.
  11. Login to your user account!
Note: If you don't have access to the Administrator account (because you don't have the password), please do tell and I'll give you the instructions on how to reset it.

GOOD LUCK!
Pelu.

Unless you can get hold of a Linux password recovery program to reset or remove the password from the Windows Administrator's login, you will need to reinstall Windows again, the device drivers and your programs.
In this process you will lose all your data that is stored on your hard drive.
If you want to save your data before you install Windows, remove the hard drive, connect it to an USB hard drive adapter (most likely you will need power to the hard drive) and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will see it as an external hard drive, copy your data you require so you can load it back onto your computer after you installed Windows.
OR
You can connect your hard drive into a working computer on the 2nd IDE controller, then you can see this drive and copy your data files.
