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.

Forgot password don't have usb can you offer useful letters of suggestions


Here's how this admin unlocks forgotten Windows password:

Start your computer and wait for the Windows Login or Welcome Screen. Once it shows, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and then type Administrator in the pop-up username box, but leave the password column blank. Next you could successfully log onto system. The following steps for resetting the forgotten password are quite easy. You can make it from "Start->Control Panel->Users Accounts".

If the method above can't help you, Windows Password Reset Deluxe is a great choice .

My gateway notebook is locked n I can't remember my user password ..help very frustrated ...I tried ctrl alt del twice to make the admin acct pop up but nothing


Try booting in safe mode.

Restart your computer.

As the computer restarts, begin pressing the F8 key after the Gateway BIOS logo appears until the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen appears.

On the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press the ENTER key.

After logging on to Windows XP Safe mode, in the Desktop dialog box, click Yes.

Good luck, post back if this helps.

I brought the msi u100 series for my son he have forgotten his password so i need 2 no where we stick the recovery disk he had with it


Log on using the administrator account, the default password is none (blank) (in case you don't see the administrator account, at the log on screen hit ctrl+alt+del twice and at the new log on screen type administrator as user, leave blank the password and hit OK). After you have logged on you do what you wish.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Gateway/vista black screen with no ctrl+alt+del but a nice cursor


Try this, before it boots up and just after in posts press F8, it should bring up a page where you can choose your boot option, choose "Safe Mode", if the computer does boot to safe mode there are a few steps you can do to remedy this.

First goto my computer, c:drive/windows and scroll down to a folder called prefetch open the folder, highlight everything in that folder by left clicking once on one of the icons and holding control(ctrl) then pressing A once everything is highlighted hold down the shift key and press delete, everything should now be gone, exit out of all the windows do a disk clean up, my computer right click on c:drive (your main drive) and click on disk cleanup tick all boxes and then click ok to start deleting the temp files. once finished reboot mechines and leave it to boot up. if you still are having problems or it wont boot up into safe mode post back. cheers.

Trying to load windows xp service pack 2 forgot my password


Hi,

For XP professional

When the computer gets to the login screen hold down both Ctrl and Alt and then hit the Del key twice. A new login window will appear.
In the top pane type administrator and hit enter. Hopefully you can log in as admin. If it lets you in go to the control panel and select "User Accounts" select "Change an Account" and the click on your account and remove the password. Click Apply and log out.

You should then be able to access your account.

For XP Home

Restart the computer and repeatedly press F8 until you see a list with safe mode at the top. Navigate to safe mode using the up cursor key and hit enter. You will see white text on the screen, this just means its loading up its basic drivers, so be patient!!

When you get to the login screen click on administrator and let it load up. Now all you have to do is go to the control panel, user accounts, change an account, click on your account and remove the password.


Please post back if you need anymore advice.


Good luck.

Forgotten password for Eee Pc 904hd op Vista


I suppose that you don't have administrator password.
If you have Xp installed, press twice CTRL+ALT+DEL and type at username Administrator and hit enter.
From there, in the Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management at the users section you can reset your password.
