Have you tried the Admin in the Safe mode without any password

Posted on Apr 21, 2008

  • Sameer Kashyap Apr 22, 2008

    As i mentioned that the first thing you should do is to go to the Safe mode.

    Safe mode. As soon as you push the power button to turn on the Computer, you need to start tapping the Key "F8", keep tapping the same till you get a black screen with Advanced Boot Options.

    Select "Safe mode" and boot the computer.
    Select the Administrator option or any other log on name displayed there. You may try the Administrator without putting in any password.

    If you are able to log on using the blank password for the Administrator OR any other user account shown there, than the password can be changed for all the user accounts.

    IF NOT

    Then when you boot with the "F8" you also get the option to Restore the computer. Try restoring it back to a date when the password was not set.

    If these does not work. Then you may have to either use the recovery CD. Or the installation CD to do a parallel install.

    Let me know what happens and will try to give you some more suggestions

If you lose windows Vista password, then you need to reinstall Vista. Use your recovery disks.

    Password recovery utilities usually do not work in Vista, as said try using user: administrator , password none , just in case you did not set password for administrator account.
    Check this link and follow procedure

As is known to all, a strong Windows password is the crux to computer security. In view of it, some users set an extremely complicated password consisting of various numbers, characters and symbols.

Reset forgotten Windows Vista Account Passwords


My son has an HP laptop and playing around, changed his password and then couldn’t get into his account. There were a number of problems here, any of which we could have fixed had we been paying more attention earlier on (like soon after he got his laptop):
  1. We could have created a password recovery disk (which can also be on a USB keyfob) – but we didn’t.
  2. We could have created a secondary administrative account on the machine with a password known only to me, his dad – but we didn’t.
We’ve now done both of these things since we were able to restore access to the machine under his previous password. But it was a bit of a trick to get access under the previous password. I figured we were going to have to reinstall Vista, using the File and Settings transfer program to first grab his old settings and files, and then reinstall all the programs – probably a 3-4 hour undertaking. But then I had another thought.
Method 1. The key here was using Vista’s System Restore feature.
The exact steps will probably vary on your machine (and this is from my memory on his HP laptop, having just done this) but roughly what we did was:
  1. Harangue him for a few hours to try to remember his password, try different variations (with and without caps lock on, for instance) and try omitting characters he might have thought he typed when he changed the password but didn’t. That didn’t work. icon_smile.gif
  2. Reboot the machine and press F11 while it’s booting – on HP machines, this gets into the "recovery console" which is thoughfully put on the system disk in a separate partition by HP.
  3. Select to restore the system (note: not restore to it’s original factory condition – that will reformat your main partition and wipe out your files, which we really wanted to avoid).
  4. Chose to reset to an early restore point – in his case, there was a restore point just four days old. Vista creates these restore points regularly. The only thing he had done in the last four days was reset his password, so I thought there was a chance that Vista might reset the old password along with the restore point. I wasn’t sure it would, but I thought it was worth a try.
  5. It took about ten minutes for Vista to do this and it then rebooted – and he was thrilled that he was able to log in with his old password!
I’ve used System Restore in other cases to get rid of really wierd behavior, and it always works like a charm. This is yet another use.
Oh, yeah, and we then created a secondary administrative account on the machine. Do that right now if you have a laptop with just one admin account – then squirrel away the password somewhere safe at home and you’ll thank yourself one day.
Method 2. Use windows password key 8.0
Step1: Choose the existing windows password key 8.0 image file.
You can click "Browse" to browse Windows Password Key 8.0 image file. The file is usually located as the default.
Step2: Choose your CD/DVD drive:
Select "CD/DVD" and specify the CD burning drive from the pull-down list. Insert a blank CD/DVD disk into the CD-ROM drive.
Step3: The burning process starts.
Windows Password Key extracts the ISO image and copies the necessary files on a CD.
Step 4: Put in your newly created CD and remove your Windows password:
1. Insert newly created CD in your CD drive and reboot your computer.
When the CD boots, you’ll see Windows Password Key 8.0 initializing (see screen shot below). If so, you can continue to the next step. If the computer boots still boots into Windows, it’s necessary to change your computer’s setup to make it boot from the CD.
Step 5: restart the machine.

Enter the recently changed password for the local user. Then you will get the above message stating ‘The user’s password must be changed before logging on the first time’
Click OK and type in the new password

clip_image003_thumb.jpg





Voila, you have just changed the password for the local account. Now you can login with the newly created password.

Im trying to reset my whole computer back to factory settings and dont have the cd. and i do have the empowering technology thing but dont have the password to that the hint is balloon and i dont even know...


The default empowering password is 000000. That would be five or six zeros, I am fairly certain it is 6. You will need to boot from the original C drive for the factory restore to work. Once you enter the password in the empowering technology, you should find the option for a full factory restore.

Hope this helps

Retrieving deleted history from windows Vista?


System Restore can make changes to Windows system files, registry settings, and programs installed on your computer. It also can make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files on your computer. Personal files, such as documents, e‑mail, photos, and music files, are not changed.



That is from Microsoft. I think History or Passwords and Form Filled items are stored in the registry, but visited sites are not. So a system restore may give you your saved passwords for sites but not the bookmarks to those sites

I forgot my password for my laptop dell inspiron 1720


Hello,

This works with windows XP or Vista-

Windows Vista Repair through DVD Windows Vista comes with a very handy feature from Windows ME days -- System Restore. Vista's System Restore is far more sophisticated than its previous iterations and can be of a real help here. 1. Just pop in the Vista DVD, make sure your BIOS is able to boot (start) from DVD-ROM first.
2. Press any key to boot from DVD when asked.
3. Set the Language to install, Time and currency format and Keyboard or input method
4. Now click Repair your computer, select the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
5. Click System Restore, and then click Next.
6. Click the restore point that was a day before you changed the password, and then click Next.
Doing this will set your computer back in time to the particular date when it was working fine. Don't worry, you won't lose any data -- only that any settings or programs installed after that date will not be accessible anymore. All you've to is re-install and redo any settings that you did.
7. Confirm the disks that you want to restore, and then click Next.
8. Click Finish, and then click Yes when you are prompted.
9. When the System Restore process is complete, hit Restart computer.
10. You can either remove the Windows DVD or just don't hit any key on the keyboard when it asks again to "Press any key." The computer will start much faster if you remove the Vista DVD.
11. After the computer restarts, click Close to confirm that the System Restore process has finished successfully.
12. After you log on with the old password, change the password for the administrator account if you like.
13. This step is most important -- Remember the password this time.
14. Restart the computer to make sure that your new password works fine.
