I forgot my Administrator Password

Until now I was the only user in my computer and I didn't need to use any password, but I remember that I did store one for the admin when I installed windows XP. My roommate asked me to use my computer and after he messed up one of my files I decided to add another user and to block the access to some of the folders. Everything went great and I created the User, changed the folders setting and the way you login to my computer. When I did restart I have 2 users, but I forgot the admin password and I can't login with my user only the new user I created. I can't change anything because the new user have limited access. I can't believe I did something so stupid, please help I am desperate. just got a new laptop and after recharging turned it back on and tried to log in wont accept my password i hav another user account on there but wont let me change or reset it through that either.it uses windows vista not xp.

You need to locate rtc and remove battery for a few minutes then replace battery (this requires disassembly)rtc is on motherboard,battery is next to it.
doing this sets bios to factory standard.

Forgot my password


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

What is the Windows XP Administrator Password?


<p>Windows XP, the most popular versions of Windows, was widely installed by PC users. Do you remember after you installing your first copy of Windows XP, how long did it require you to realize that you didn't know the administrator password? I vaguely remembered that it was about a week before I needed to make some changes in the file system. It suddenly came to me to be logged on as an administrator, but I do not know the password of the administrator! <br /> <p> <br /> <p><img src="windows-xp-administrator-password.jpg" /> <p><br /> Luckily, Windows XP (both Home and Professional versions) have a "hidden" administrator account which is autogenerate when install. This account usually doesn't show up on the logon screen and most people are totally unaware of its existence. Usually it is ok because we didn't need to user this account very often, only when we don't know the administrator password, need access to the Windows XP recovery console or boot into Windows XP safe mode, the default <b>Windows XP administrator password</b> would come in handy.<br /> <p><br /> What is the Default Administrator Password in Windows XP?</b><br /> <p><br /> Knowing the default password of Windows XP administrator account would be very useful.<br /> <ol> <li>Try to leave the password blank. Simply press Enter without typing anything.</li></ol> <p>The default Windows XP Administrator password is defined to blank during the initial Windows XP installation process.<br /> <ol> <li> Enter the password for your account. It often depend on how Windows XP has been installed on your computer and what part of XP is asking for an admin password, the main user account will also be configured with administrator privilege.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Forgot my Windows XP Administrator Password!</b><br /> <p><br /> Windows XP User Accounts applet in the Control Panel functions is to create a password reset disk wizard. Using this wizard, a floppy disk or USB flash drive can be used to create a specific password reset disk for specific user account on a specific Windows XP computer. The password reset disk can only be used with the computer it was created on and it can also be reused to reset the account's password multiple times. However, you need to know the password of the account you want to create the reset disk for, and you must create the reset disk before you forget the administrator password <br /> Here is how to <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">reset XP administrator password</a> with the XP password reset disk:<br /> <ol> <li>Insert the XP password reset disk to the computer</li> <li>Click the Use your password reset disk item on the XP logon screen to start the Password Reset Wizard. Click the Next button</li> <li>Follow the instructions to create a new password. </li> <li>Logon with the new password.</li></ol> <p><br /> I Didn't Create a Password Reset Disk!</b><br /> <p><br /> OK, if you <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgot Windows XP administrator password</a> and don't have a password rest disk, you won't be able to create a password reset disk anymore. Instead, there are several things you can try to get access to your windows. <b>SmartKey Windows Password Recovery</b> is your ticket. This password recovery tool not only works on Windows XP, but also on all releases of Windows NT/2000/Vista/ 7 and Windows Server 2003/2008. It works by booting from a CD/DVD or USB flash drive and reset the <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten Windows XP administrator password</a>.<br /> <p><br /> <b>NOTE: </b>If you change the administrator password on a Windows XP or Windows Vista system with the Encrypted File System (EFS), all of the encrypted files will become inaccessible. The password for the Administrator account is used to create the EFS encryption key. Changing the Administrator account back to using the original password should restore access to the encrypted files, but I have never tried it.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>If you only need to blank the <b>Windows XP Administrator password</b>, here are the basic steps:<br /> <ol> <li> Download and install SmartKey Windows Password Recovery software.</li> <li> Burn the software to CD/DVD or USB flash drive. </li> <li> Insert newly created CD/DVD and reboot your computer from the CD/DVD or USB flash drive </li> <li> Reset the forgotten Windows XP password, remove the CD/DVD or USB flash drive and then reboot the computer</li></ol> <p>Having the capability to reset <a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html">forgotten XP administrator passwords</a> and regain access to a locked computer can be a great time saver, but should only be tried by an IT professional. you may probably make things worse rather than better if you use sophisticated system or manipulation tools<br /> <p><br /> <p>Article Source:<a href="http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html">http://recoverlostpassword.com/article/windows-xp-administrator-password.html</a><br />

You type like an honest person so lets see if we can help you out :)

It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

How do i undo my system password?


System Password? No Such Thing!!!

The Three Types of Passwords are:
Bios Password - which is a password the comes up before the machine will even start booting. If you set this password, you should know it. The only way to remove a Bios Password if the take the laptop apart and remove the CMOS battery that is on the motherboard and let it sit for an hour or so until the computer completely loses memory of everything including the date, time, passwords.

Hard Drive Password - The hard drive password is set by the owner of the laptop to prevent thieves from getting to sensitive data if the laptop is stolen. 99% of the time if someone don't know the Hard Drive Password, then the laptop is stolen. If you're smart enough to set the hard drive password, then you should be smart enough to remember it. The real owner can sometimes set the password remotely once the laptop is stolen. The only way to remove the hard drive password is type in the correct password.

Windows Password - This password is associated with a user id that shows up once windows has completely booted up. If you forgot this password, it can be reset depending on the operating system.

Windows 7 requires a Password Reset Disc that everyone should take the time to create if they want to use a password on their user account. Without the disc that was created on that computer you won't be able to get in.

Windows XP and Vista - Turn off the computer, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select Safe Mode and let the computer boot. When it comes to the login screen it will show the Administrator account and the user account for which you forgot the password. Click on the Administrator account and just click ok or enter for the password (hopefully you didn't create an Administrator's password and forgot it too). When you see the windows desktop in safe mode it will look differently. The icons will be bigger and the screen darker, but that is normal in safe mode. Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the user account for which you forgot the password, then select REMOVE PASSWORD, click OK and reboot your machine. This time let the computer boot up as it normally would.

I forgot my password to my dell latitude i need to restore it back to factory setttins i already have it took apart


Are you restoring back to Factory Setting simply because you forgot the password? Please tell me NO. If so, that is not what you want to do. Resetting to Factory Settings will cause you to lose all your documents, music, pictures & videos unless you have them backed up somewhere outside of the computer. If all you need is the password removed, try turning off your machine, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot. When the log in screen appears you will see the account for which you forgot the password and the Administrator account. Select the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it also). If you log in successfully with the Administrator account click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When you are in the User Accounts select the account for which you forgot the password, then select the option to Remove Password. Now reboot your machine.

I forgot my Administrator Password


While you lost windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to remove windows password when you lost user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there is no way to change it, you have to use tool to recover administrator password. Yesterday evening, I forgot my Windows administrator password. At last, I used Windows Password Seeker to retrieve my Windows password successfully. It's worth a try.
