Do an inplace upgrade with a windows 2000 install disc, and after it restarts from the win16 bit interface, and it boots up from HDD to the screen where it says "installing device drivers" press shift+F10 and that should bring up a command prompt. from there, type in "nsrmgr.cpl" and configure. also try at the command prompt "control userpassword2"

I need to get into my computer, but I forgot the password


Hello Buddy,

If you have not tried going to Safe Mode, try booting the computer in Safe Mode. To get there, you will need to press on the F8 key soon as you press the power button to turn it on. Once you get to the Advance Menu Option, choose Safe Mode. This will boot the computer with the minimal set of drivers running. Highlight Safe Mode and press enter (you can use the up and down arrow key to scroll down and up to choose Safe Mode). Once you press enter you will get to the next screen to choose operating system. There should only be one option. Then you press enter again, will get you bunch of stuffs on the screen comming from the button to top. You will get the log on screen and you will need to choose the Administrator Account. There should appear two user accounts, your account and the Administrator. Log on to the administrator account. Once you have the desktop screen with icons and Start menu, follow these steps:

1. Click on Start menu.
2. Fin the "Run" icon and click on it.
3. On the Open box. type in "control userpasswords2". Then press Ok.
4. You will get a User Account window with a list of users on the computer.
5. Your user account should be on the list. Highlight your account, then press the Reset Password on the lower right hand side of the window.
6. Reset Password dialog box will appear. Then type in your new password. Make sure that you will remember it. ^_^


Hope this one helps

Yes, when you switch the laptop on hold down the F8 key until you see a black screen with a list of white text, one of the options will be "Safe Mode", use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode (just safe mode, not safe mode with anything) and press return. The computer will start to the welcome screen and you will see a user-name you don't normally see called "Administrator". Click on Administrator and you will find it is not password protected (in spite of the fact that the Administrator account has more access to the system than any other account!) when the administrator profile loads it will ask you if you want to continue in safe mode and you do. click start, click control panel and click on users and groups now click on your son's user account and click remove password. now click back, click on the Administrator account and click change password, the old password should be left blank and you're new Administrator password should be something at least 7 letters, numbers and special characters (!@£$%^&*) long that you can remember. Now just restart and let it start up normally, once loaded advise your son to set a password he can remember or at least write down somewhere safe.
