You may want to try Safe mode with networking. Safe mode with networking works just like your normal mode and you don't have to login as administrator and you can use your normal login credentials if any.
Try logging in as administrator in safe mode if you have not tried that already. Some of the newer spyware/malware has been disabling admin accounts and wiping out recovery points. I battled some spyware last week like that.
When you get into safe mode are you only getting in as a guest or are you able to get in as another user?
Let us know how it goes.
If your postive your password is right there is a very good chance you may have had a caps lock on or off depending on how you wanted your password when you set it in the begining. If all else fails try booting into the admin account via safe mode. Search online how to get your laptop to log to safe mode, usually you can select the option in msconfig by going to run and typing in msconfig or if you hold your power button in till it shuts off and turn it back on you will have an option for safe mode and log in as admin in the admin account (usually no default password is assigned) then you can back up your data and then do a reformat. THEN REMEMBER your password :-)
Okay, first of all the admin password is usually blank so just try to log in without any password at all. Next if that doesn't work Reset the password by opening safe mode and logging in as your normal user and remove the password from the Administrator account and then it should work. If it doesn't just tell me and I will give you an alternate way in.
hi, The easiest way to recover your admin password in windows is to restart
in safe mode (keep F8 pressed at startup) and log in as administartor
(default administartor user that only shows at safe mode startup with -
usually- no password). then you go to control panel and reset the
password on your normal admin account. restart in normal mode and you
are done. if that doesn´t work there are various password recovery
applications you can download and use :
-- Reset Admin Password to Blank. Access XP/2000/NT/2003/Server
some computers have safe mode accounts that run as admin that don't have a password try going into safe mode here are the steps to get into safe mode
one turn your computercompletely off
two turn your computer on and immediately hit F8 repeatedly till a menu shows the using the keyboard select safe mode
you should see a ***** of text go by don't worry this is normaly now the computer should go to the account's page select the administrator account and the computer should log you in fromhere goto the control panel and accounts page and ethere try to change the password on the old account or make a new admin account hope this helps
