There are several ways you can do this. There are password reset tools that you can boot to a cd from which can wipe out a password, Also if you have the restore disks for the computer you can do a destructive restore which would wipe everything off the computer and set it back to day one. Another option is to boot the machine into safe mode and if the administrator account is not password protected then you can go into control panel and under the user accounts option you can remove the password from an account.

I forgot my window xp password


Reboot the computer in safe mode (tap F8 during the HP splash screen and choose safe mode from the menu selections). When the computer comes up to the user name, change it to administrator and no password. As long as you have not added an administrator password to this account, the computer should finish booting. Now go into control panel and use accounts. Remove the password from your user account (do not change, since you do not know the current password). Reboot the computer and your user account should load with out a password. You can add a password by going back in to control panel and user accounts.

Hope this helps

Can you tell me where USB port is located in HP pavilion MX75


USB ports are located on the back and also on the front on newer desktop PCs. These are on the computer tower - not the monitor as your posting is categorized. They are rectangular slots with four copper contacts inside.
