Take off safe mode

When your system is Windows XP, you can reset it in safe mode

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

My gateway notebook is locked n I can't remember my user password very frustrated ...I tried ctrl alt del twice to make the admin acct pop up but nothing

Try booting in safe mode.

Restart your computer.

As the computer restarts, begin pressing the F8 key after the Gateway BIOS logo appears until the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen appears.

On the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press the ENTER key.

After logging on to Windows XP Safe mode, in the Desktop dialog box, click Yes.

Good luck, post back if this helps.

If i lost my password how can i get another one or find my old one.

If you are running windows xp, try starting up in safe mode.

start your computer and tap the F8 Key until you come to the safe mode menu. Boot into safe mode and see if you can log in as "Administrator" (if you do not see the Administrator account hold down ctrl+alt and tap delete twice, you should get the manual log in screen)

if your administrator account does not have a password, then you can go in and change your original account password.

If you have a password on your administrator account, you will need to download a password renewal tool of some sort.

Trying to load windows xp service pack 2 forgot my password


For XP professional

When the computer gets to the login screen hold down both Ctrl and Alt and then hit the Del key twice. A new login window will appear.
In the top pane type administrator and hit enter. Hopefully you can log in as admin. If it lets you in go to the control panel and select "User Accounts" select "Change an Account" and the click on your account and remove the password. Click Apply and log out.

You should then be able to access your account.

For XP Home

Restart the computer and repeatedly press F8 until you see a list with safe mode at the top. Navigate to safe mode using the up cursor key and hit enter. You will see white text on the screen, this just means its loading up its basic drivers, so be patient!!

When you get to the login screen click on administrator and let it load up. Now all you have to do is go to the control panel, user accounts, change an account, click on your account and remove the password.

Please post back if you need anymore advice.

Good luck.

I forgot my password to login to windows XP Pro on my personal laptop. How can I bypass it?

First try is to hold down CTRL + ALT + DEL and try typing in as the user "Administrator" with no password, if this does not work do not worry, it only works on half the systems anyway. Of course the next try is rebooting into safe mode by pressing F8 during the boot but before the windows screen, when it loads up safe mode it actually gives you an administrator option as a login, usually works. The last and third way is to actually use the windows xp operating system disc and boot to it and run a windows repair, suggest talking to a technician if you do this one. Once you get into windows just go to control panel from the start menu and open up user accounts and then access the account that needs the password to be changed and change it.

You can reset windows password in safe mode.

Follow the steps below:
    1. Restart the locked computer and boot it from safe mode.
    2. On log on screen, click the Administrator and leave its password column blank to log on to computer.

    If the method below can't help you, I think you should use Windows Password Reset to cracking your forgotten password.

Need XP Professional password for Dell Latitude D600

Assuming Windows XP.

Boot into safe mode. Do so by pressing 'F8' a few times just as the computer begins to boot up (right before the Windows screen)

Once in safe mode, click on administrator (or type it in as the username if it doesn't come up with the welcome screen). It shouldn't, by default, have a password if it is XP Home.

Once logged in as administrator, go to control panel and users and change the password on the account you want or create a new one.
