5. Follow the Forgotten Password Wizard to create your Windows XP password reset disk.

Once you find your Windows XP password is lost or forgotten, just reset Windows XP password with the disk. The Windows XP password reset disk can be repeatedly used to reset password for your computer, so please remember to keep it in a safe place. Otherwise, unauthorized users can log on your computer and get access to the precious data on it. It will be a disaster for you if your privacy is leaked out.

Method 2: Log on as administrator to reset Windows XP password

All Windows XP computers have a special user account named "Administrator" and by default this account is not password protected. If you don't set password for the account or you remember its password, you can log on computer with the administrator account to perform Windows XP password reset.

2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you see Windows XP login screen.
3. When Log On to Windows dialog box appears, type Administrator in the User name box.

7. Set your new password and click OK on the Reset Password dialog box. And then click OK on user tab.
8. Restart the computer, and then try to log on to Windows again.

Method 3: Burn a USB flash drive to reset Windows XP password

In addition to the two methods above, you can also perform Windows XP password reset with third party Windows password recovery software. It can help you reset Windows XP login password by burning a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. Before starting to perform Windows XP password reset with this method, you need to find a computer with optical driver that you can log on. Then, you can follow the below steps to burn a USB flash drive with Windows Login Recovery.

1. Download Windows Login Recovery and install it.
2. Burn the ISO image file on the program to a USB flash drive.
3. Set your locked computer to boot from USB drive.
4. Reset forgotten Windows XP password with the burned USB flash drive.

The above 3 methods are easy for you to reset Windows XP password. Of course, method to perform Windows XP password reset is not limited to the 3 options. There are still other options for you, like using a Windows installation disc to recover Windows XP password. You just find one suits you best to reset your lost Windows XP password.

B110 Desktop...the bios password has me locked out. How can I reset to the factory bios password. How do I set a new bios password when I don't know the current one????


Hi

You have to open up your laptop notebook by removing all the screws at the back of your computer but make sure you remove the battery and then remove the CMOS battery at the motherboard and return again to reset the BIOS setting and will remove the password.

I hope it helps you.

A friend held down the pwr button after a windows update to restart the PC instead of doing a shutdown (he thought that's the way to do a restart) and now it BSODs on normal XP start and locks up mid...


The recovery console can only be used if you have a recovery disk that was supplied or if you made one.

This is not a repair option that will just repair the PC.

The admin password is the password you set, windows does not set any passwords, so if you did not set a password then just hit enter, but as I said you need the recovery disk.

If you can not get into safe mode or the PC does not have a option to enter system restore, which could be F8, then there are a few things you can try.

You can try the last known good configuration,
you can try the repair boot.

.Boot with XP CD or 6 floppy boot disk set. 2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.
3. Type bootcfg.
4. This should fix any boot.ini errors causing setup not to see the XP OS
install.

Your best bet is if you have the windows disk,is to reinstall windows, but you need to go to the maker of the computer or you need to go to the motherboard and get all the drivers for your system.

What happened was, when windows installs updates it is writing to the system, and it warns you not to shut down, and this can take up two a few hours, it could have been updating a service pack. The system is stuck in writing and you will have better luck just reinstalling when using windows xp.
Vista is eaiser to repair then xp.

Cant log in windows!


Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

Srinivas.
