The only easy way I know around that is to use a "Boot CD" that contains utilities and a pasword reset tool. I use "ultimate boot cd" but there are lots of options. Google it and it will show you how to download/create one.

Dell optiplex gx60. Windows XP wont load and I need a password to get into safe mode. Any way to reset user password without access to windows?


Reset windows password have been an easy thing nowadays.

Here are the two ways to crack windows xp password.

1.You can go into safe mode (F8 at logo when booting up) and enter as administrator and then go to accounts and change Windows password and that's with XP. I haven't forgotten password for a pc before but can enter any XP pc in safe if the owner hasn't gone into safe mode and designated a password for "administrator" and usually only have a password for the user account but never have tried on Vista or Win7.

2.If that does not work,you can use software to reset the Windows password,my favorite is Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0

Wont let me access desktop without entering my administrative password


Here is a simple way to access Windows XP with Administrator rights and privileges if you have password protected your User account on your Windows XP system and can't remember the password(s) to login. Whenever Windows XP is installed on a system, it creates a default account called "Administrator" and by default this account is not password protected. Therefore, if you bought a brand name computer (such as Dell, HP, Compaq or Sony)or you have installed Windows XP yourself. You should be able to login to the computer through theunprotected Administrator account.

You can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account. To do this, try Method 1.

Method 1: Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch on until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.

Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.

Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (e.g. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.


If Method 1 is unsuccessful try Method 2.

Method 2: Reset Windows Password with SmartKey Windows Password Recovery.

Download SmartKey Windows Password Recovery from SmartKey Password Recovery Official site

Decompress the SmartKey Windows Password Recovery and note that there is an.ISO image file. Burn the image file onto a blank CD with the burner.

Insert the newly created CD into the locked computer and re-boot it from the CD drive.

Boot the PC with the CD Rom and Run the SmartKey, a window pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts) select one of the accounts that you have forgotten its password to reset it. Just one press, you have removed the password.
