This was posted on your other request as well:

In that box that asks you for the password, can you type in the username Administrator with no password and get in? I am wondering if your admin account actually has a password assigned, which most do not. Give it a try and see what happens. Let me know if this works, please.

Locked administrator


For Windows Password:

2. Type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank.
3. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you should be able to reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Log in screen.

Cant log in to computer.dont know password. bought at auction


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. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) 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
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instruction exactly.

Forgot password


Here are 2 options to change lost administrator password without learning it. Hope they can work for you!
Option 1: If you can log on your laptop with an administrator account, you can change the password following the steps:
1. Right-click Computer to select Manage.
2. In the coming Local Users and Groups screen, double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.
3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.
4. Type and confirm the new password.
Note: you can also go to Local Users and Groups screen by clicking Start button and inputting lusrmgr.msc into the Search box.

Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

5.The system should boot to Safe Mode.
Once you are at the Account Log on Screen, click on the icon
for the user account with administrator rights, or click on the icon
for the administrators account.
Note: For Home the Administrator account isn't normally shown & in Safe Mode you have to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete keys twice to show.
For PRO you can do this in normal mode
When the system has booted to the desktop, use the following steps to change the accounts password.
1.Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools.
2.Click Computer Management.
3.Double click Local Users and Groups, double click the folder Users.
4.Right click on the account name that is locked out, and click on Set Password.
5.You may get a warning message about changing the password, simply click proceed.

Administrator Password


you may be able to get in with the default administrator account.
when you get to the welcome screen, press control/alt/del together.
this will open up a dialog box where you can type in user names/passwords.
There are two accounts you can try here:
try the Administrator account and the Guest account. Try them both with no passwords and try the administrator one with the same password your account had.
You can also type into this box to verify your keyboard is working properly (caps lock off, all keys working, etc).
Finally, if none of this works, try booting in to safe mode and logging in through there.

If worse comes to worse, there are a couple of free programs you can install on a cd and upon boot they will reset the administrator password.
