Well, if this is your computer you purchased, ie: HP, Compaq, Gateway, etc. then more than likely the password is simple.... nothing. Not the word nothing, but a blank entry. Try that. IF not, then you could always press F8 while the computer powers on and then you can try to start the computer up into Safe Mode. and at the login screen there it may work. With the user name 'Administrator' and a blank password. If not, there are ways to remove Windows passwords.

Hi I have another computer a windows xp and I forgot my password what can I do without paying money to recover it do I need to make a system repair disk on this computer


The first thing you can do is try accessing the Administrator account. To make this easier, boot into Safe Mode, and login as Administrator. Turn on the computer, and keep tapping F8 as soon the the bios/post/splash screen is passed, you have to do this quickly. If you do this correctly, you'll see the Windows Advanced Boot Menu, hightlight the Safe Mode using your keyboard's up/down arrow keys and press enter to select and start booting. Wait until you see the the Windows xp welcome screen, select "Administrator" and proceed, if you see any warning message, click "Ok" or "yes", once you are logged in, right-click "My Computer", select "Manage". The Computer Management window will open up, now locate "Local Users and Groups", click the "+" sign beside it and again click "Users", look at the right-pane, you'll see your username (the username you've forgotten your password), right-click your username, and click "Set Password" or if "Reset Password" is available, click it. Set a new password and there you go, you now have reset your windows xp password. Please note that if you have any "encrypted" files or folders, you may be having problem opening them, but if you don't know what is encrypted in Windows, I guess you didn't do that.

Once everything is done, restart your computer and login to your account.

If in case your Administrator account has a password, you won't be able to do this, in many instances, the Administrator password is "admin" (without quotes), so you can try with it, otherwise you'll need a tool like Ophrack or Nt Password reset tool to get this done.

Let me know if you need further help..

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cant remember user passward on presario sr203onx


Try downloading Ophcrack.

To use it, download it and then burn the .iso file to a blank cd.

Then, boot the computer with the cd is inserted and choose "boot from cd".

Follow the on screen instructions as the computer will boot up and then crack your password.

Then right click on my computer, manage, local users & groups, select user on the right tab, again right click on the user where the password is lost, then select set password, don't type anything, simply press enter. then log off administrator, login with the same old user it will not ask any password.

Password forgotten


Depending on other things that you have set up, you may be able to log in as the "Administrator"
Try the following.
  • On the login screen press CTRL+ALT++Delete
    You should see a login that asks fro your username and password.
  • Enter "Administrator" as the user name.
  • Leave the password blank.
If you have not assigned a password to the system administrator account, this will get you in.
Then you can go to users in the control panel and re-set the password on your other account.

I lost the admin password for my computer.


Try this way

To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow key to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
select safe mode.

Login to administrator .
if you are able to login then try to remove your user password this way
go to control panel > user account > select your user account and click on remove password.

i thins it'll help you.

Unaccessible pcs due to lost user codes


First try holding the keys Ctrl, Alt and Delete at the same time for three times when computer is on login screen at startup.
This will open a box asking for user ID and password.
In user put 'Administrator', and leave the password blank.

If this does not work, then reinstall Windows, after reinstalling Windows you will be asked to enter new user names.

Yes, when you switch the laptop on hold down the F8 key until you see a black screen with a list of white text, one of the options will be "Safe Mode", use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode (just safe mode, not safe mode with anything) and press return. The computer will start to the welcome screen and you will see a user-name you don't normally see called "Administrator". Click on Administrator and you will find it is not password protected (in spite of the fact that the Administrator account has more access to the system than any other account!) when the administrator profile loads it will ask you if you want to continue in safe mode and you do. click start, click control panel and click on users and groups now click on your son's user account and click remove password. now click back, click on the Administrator account and click change password, the old password should be left blank and you're new Administrator password should be something at least 7 letters, numbers and special characters (!@£$%^&*) long that you can remember. Now just restart and let it start up normally, once loaded advise your son to set a password he can remember or at least write down somewhere safe.
