I know how frustrating losing passwords is. The Administator is the worst. Ive learned to leave the passowrd to start my computer blank. I love my HP - Compaq - Presario. And one of the reasons that is - is the easy to follow support from HP. I just read an e-mail that reminded me that they are there if I need any help. here's the chat support (for HP products) link that was in the e-mail.
P.S. I hope you don't have important stuff you need to get to because I think your only option is to reset your PC. That is the great thing about my notebook. There is a back up drive in the computer. If I have to - I simply click on System Recovery and my computer is back to factory condition. HP is good product. and if you don't have a back up - you can acquire a CD thru their Web sites ( But I believe there is a price).

Cant remember my user name and password


There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and then reset your password.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in "Administrator" in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Select the account you want to reset the password
6. Change the password

Hope this helps.

Hi I forgot my password to my computer is there anyway I can get in?


This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and its difficult to break into its password.

Take care.

I cant boot my laptop. it will ask for a paaword before the os starts running

You evidently have a BIOS based password. If you dont know it - whose computer is this anyway??? - you must clear that password. Best way I know to do that is remove the BIOS battery.

Where is it??? (whose computer is this anyway???)

Windows xp will not load

When it asks for administrator password, and you didn't have one set, just push enter and you'll be able to continue.

If you don't need any information from the computer, use a program to writes zeros to the drive and then you'll be able to install windows. HDD manufacturers provide a program to zero the drive

It depends on what operating system your using, if it's windows XP then you should be able to press 'control' 'alt' and 'delete' twice when it comes up with the logon screen. This will then give you the option to log into an account called administrator. This will either have no password, or have the same password that you originally used to setup the account. From here you should be able to either change the password of the other account or, create a new account.
Failing that you can hang your son upside down from a window untill he remembers.
