Windows Login Password - Cant Safe Mode or Log in as Admin

I saw a posting you had for a similar problem with someone else. I hope you can maybe help me. We have an HP Laptop with Pentium M and Windows XP Pro that was given to us by my sister in law. She cant remember her passwords. How can I get past the Windows Log On Password? I tried to hit F8 to go into Safe Mode but even in Safe Mode it seems to take me to that same Log On prompt. Any help would be really appreciated. Steve White steve_m_white@yahoo.com

Hey Steve/Becky - I have one question for you before I fix your problem. When you booted in safe mode, did it give an option of several logons, i.e.- yours and an administrators?

How to switch to admin login on my sons laptop


Sometimes the existing user is the Admin. This question arises every day, and here is my post. Good Luck


Lost Windows password:



  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is availible) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

I cant long in to my account


Follow these step to login in your sysytem- 1. Reboot your windows , once it starts up, keep clicking f8 , this should bring you to safe mode, start windows automatically under safe mode and follow these steps below . 2. Once you're in safe mode, On the bottom of your screen, click "start" menu , Go in to your control panel, find user accounts , click on that. 3. Go into user accounts and find your log in screen name you use example " duckie , and delete password log in, after you have done that now you can restart your system , it should just log you right in automatically without asking for your password. 4. Once you have completed the above steps, go back in to your user account and create yourself a new password and don't forget it this time, it's always safe to run windows with a password and login screen name. hope this helps you..
Thanks Kristin

I know an administrator tool for Windows password reset, Windows Password Breaker, which can easily reset forgotten Windows password to blank without reinstall. you can have a try.

Or 6 ways for Windows 7 password reset could also be helpful.

You have to reset the PC and while booting press F8 until the OS menu shows up, choose start safe mode. When you reach the Login part you will be able to login as an administrator, while you are logged in as Admin change your user password.
Word of advice, change to Windows XP or Windows 7 because Vista is the worst OS I saw. Cheers

I forgot my password..i can't open my laptop


in most cases, the administrator account which is always hidden for such purposes has no password.
You can log into your administrator account in safe mode and then delete your user account, then create a new account with another password.
To log into safe mode, power your computer and imediately press F8.
After a few seconds, list of options will be displayed, select Login with safe mode.
After a few seconds, your list of user accounts will be displayed, select "Administrator" and log in.

Can't get by the windows log in screen


Assuming you did not set an administrator password - you can hit the F8 key when booting - and then select Safe Mode. Once the machine boots to safe mode, you'll be able to login using the Administrator account, and you can go into the control panel to change the actual user's password.

If you did set an admin password that you do not recall, you can use Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor to reset the Admin password.

Cant log on


you will have to press F8 to get into safe mode, then select start windows in safe mode. when in safe mode select the administrator account and then log in on that, then go to your user account and either delete the password or delete your account, all saved docs will still be there in an old folder with your account name if you need to delete the account. restart the pc as normal then you should be able to log on without the need for a password.
