Dell reinstallation CD XP admin password

I am trying to RECOVER the XP system from my DELL CD that came with system. It starts okay, and I select "R" for Recovery and then it asks for the Administrative password.

I have entered both the BIOS Admin password (and also the XP Admin password (although I could not see how it would want the XP version). Also tried ADMIN and {Enter}...all fail and just get the C:\Windows command prompt...sweet!

Any ideas of suggestions appreciated. The system is a Dell Dimension 8400, and started getting a lot of BLUE SCREEN of death errors. Have tried reinstalling the 4Gb of Memory and a new hard drive (C:)....all to no avail...so, I was going to try and lay down the original XP operating system, hence the problem with the Admin Password request.

Thanks,

Mike

I want to hack win xp admin password by guest their is error "access is denied" i hv try safe mode its no working


While you forgot windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to recover windows password while you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there's no way to change it, you should use utility to recover admin password. Last week, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to remove the Windows password successfully. It's worth an attempt.

Plug in an external USB CD drive.. place your recover cd in in.
When you power up the machine after you see the Dell logo press the F12 key to bring up the alternate boot options
Select the usb cd ... you may need to watch for another prompt that says press any key to boot from cd

That error BTW indicates you have a corrupt DLL that windows login depends on to load.
Reinstalling should fix it

How to recover forgotten admin password for windows xp ?


Option 1: If the user you have is an administrator account, go to the control panel and select user accounts. When you are in user accounts, find the account you want to remove the password from and you will see the option there.

Option 2: If your user is NOT administrative, you can use ERD commander to reset it. You basically burn ERD onto a CD and it will boot when you restart. There is a program called Locksmith that will remove or change the password for you.
