I have forgotten my password to my dell c521 computer, not the system password


As far as I know, there are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, retrieve, reset windows password. However, I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years. The free software can help you, but you have to learn some computer skills and waste a lot time on learning. If you want to save more time, maybe Google third party password recovery tool or Google Window Password Seeker can help you.

Forget windowxp password


you can search for a password boot disk which will disable the administrator password.

There are dozens of these types of programs but one program I recommend is windows password reset 6.0
http://www.resetwindowspassword.com

Download the iso file and burn it to a disk to create the boot disk, that simple.

Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive,

Insert the CD and it would boot then just disable the password and restart.

Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

How to reset your lost windows XP/NT/ 7 password


The World Cup is coming and you attemp to log in to your Windows xp,and realize you can’t remember the password?It is very annoying. What should you do when you lost windows password to login to Windows system?

It is easy to gain access to windows after losing your user account password.Just simply login as the computer administrator, and go to control panel->user accounts. There you will be able to reset the password for any of the systems user accounts.

Things get more tricky if you have lost administrator password, It's a sickening,powerless feeling to be locked out of your own computer though this happens more often,everytime we feel so helpless.What should you do in facing this situation.You have tried everything you could but failed.

In reality,There are a couple of ways you can gain access to your windows Adminitrator account.

Method 1: Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten password by using ""Reset Disk"". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset windows password.

Method 2: Use a password Reset Disk
To use the password Reset Disk to log on to the computer,you can follow these steps/ If your computer is current or former member of the domain, go to "domain Windows XP Professional" section and follow the steps.

Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional Restart the computer.In the Windows XP logon screen, click the user name you want to use, and then press Enter.Note: You will receive the following error message:“Did you forget your password? You can click the "?" Button to see your password hint.Or you can use your password reset disk. Please type your password again. Be sure to use the correct uppercase and lowercase letters.”
Click "Use a password reset disk." "Password Reset Wizard" starts. Through the "Password Reset Wizard", you can create your user account a new password.

In the "Password Reset Wizard" dialog box, click "Next."The password reset disk into the CD drive, then click "Next."
In the "Type a new password" box, type a new password, and then "re-type the password to confirm" box, type the password again.In the "Type a new password hint" box, type the password prompt, and then click "Next."Click the "Finish", then try to log on to Windows XP.

If you can reset your password, and now can successfully log on, you have to solve this problem, and completed all operations. If you still can not log in, please try Method 3.

Method 3:
There are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, reset, retrieve or reveal windows password. However, I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years and my favorite is the windows password key 8.0. This utility is used to reset password of any windows versions.
1. Login to a computer that can link to Internet. Download windows Password key and install it on that PC. Note that: there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD or a USB flash drive.
2. Insert the newly created CD/USB to the locked computer.
3. Reboot the locked computer and press'F2'or'Delete'to enter your BIOS setup and then you will see the instruction
Now you can regain access your Windows operating system and create a new administrator password. The best thing of using this method is that you shouldn't lose any data on your computer. Furthermore, If you can't find a computer which has a CD/DVD writer or the locked computer have no a CD-ROM, You can burn the ISO image file into a USB flash drive and use the USB flash drive to recover your Windows administrator password.

Try these three methods the next time you have lost Windows administrator password, which you do not need to reinstall Windows system for getting back to Windows by removing lost or forgotten password.

I need to get into a computer I own, but I forgot the password.


Before the burn of the CD, look for an option that states Bootable CD. You have to make the CD bootable. You might also look on the internet for the term LIVE CD.

WP xp is coming up and asking for password. I don't recall a pass word. This just started today as I turn the laptop on. ( happen before)


If it's a windows password do this, I've done this plenty of times.
Step1
Take a Windows bootable CD and insert it into your CD-ROM. Boot your computer with the Windows CD as if you were doing the Windows installation. When the CD starts working, you will be prompted to “Press any key to boot from CD”.
Step2
Go through the steps until you will see a setup screen where it requires you to choose from one of two options: Install Windows or Repair Windows
Step3
Press “R” to start repair of the windows. The Setup will start copying the files from CD to your PC hard drive. Wait for few minutes; the computer will then reboot itself automatically.
Step4
The GUI (Graphical User Interface) screen of Windows Setup will be shown on the screen. You will need to go to the command prompt.
If you are using Windows 2000, wait until the setup comes to the place where it says, “Registering Components.” There you are going to pres the “Shift+ F10” key.
If you are using Windows XP, wait until you see a progress bar in the left where it says, “Installing devices.” There you are going to press the “Shift + F10” key.
Step5
Now that you have opened the command prompt, you will need to get access to the control panel. Here is how:
If using Windows 2000, type “control.exe” in command prompt without quotes. If using Windows XP, type “nusrmgr.cpl” in command prompt without quotes.
Step6
Now that you have access to the control panel, you can reset or set a new password using the control panel administration/password utilities. When you are complete, close the command prompt and wait until the repair is completed. Restart your computer and login with your new password.
Remember you will need the windows product key for the operating system in question.
