I am trying to do a windows recovery. First when I pressed r to recover it asked for adm password. I didn't have one and it wouldn't let me by, so I purchased Spotmau online to recover the password and finally got rid of that, run recovery console again, it asked for password and I just clicked next thinking it would start the process but it just gives me a Windows prompt C:\WINDOWS> What do I do to get the recovery process going? Pl,ease help, Thanks, Rod

    Well, I just thought I knew what I was doing!. Your plan seems to be working. I thought both the recoveries were the same thing, no wonder it wouldn't work. Thanks. A for the day!

Hello

You are currently in the Recovery console which is a advanced feature for repairing specific problems.

If your computer doesn't start up, maybe you want to do a Repair Install, not use the recovery console.

1.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

2.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

3.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

4.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

5.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

6.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

Acer created a hidden partition labeled PQSERVICE

You wouldn't able to see this partition in Windows explorer. If you want to see this partition existance, right-click My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management


PQSERVICE partition contain an image of Windows OS (XP/Vista/Seven) and this partition will be load to recover anytime when your Windows OS crashed, unstable, or infected by virus.

How to choose a easiest way to Find out Windows 7 Password


An administrator password in Windows 7 is the password to any account that’s setup to access administrator level functions in Windows 7.
There doesn’t actually have to be an Administrator user account. What you need is the password to any account that can act as an administrator.
There are a few times when you will need this password. You may need an Windows 7 administrator password if you’re trying to run certain types of programs or access certain Windows 7 password recovery tools.
Follow the steps below to quickly find the Windows 7 administrator password!
1.Try leaving the password blank. If there is actually an Administrator account, the password may not exist at all!
Just press Enter without typing anything when asked for it
2.Enter the password to your account. Often times, depending on how Windows 7 was setup on your computer, the primary user account will also be an administrator user account.
3.Try to remember the Windows 7 administrator password. As I mentioned in the last step, your account might be an administrator account, especially if you installed Windows 7 on your computer yourself.
4.Have another user enter his or her credentials. If there are other users that have accounts on your Windows 7 computer, one of them may be setup with administrator access.
5.If this is true, have the other user designate you as an administrator as well.
6.Recover the Windows 7 administrator password using a Windows password recovery tool. You are able to recover or reset Windows 7 administrator password with Windows Password Unlocker
7.Perform a clean install of Windows 7. This is a last resort option. This type of installation will completely remove Windows 7 from your PC and install it again from scratch.
If you’re just curious about your administrator password, I wouldn’t suggest this extreme solution. However, if you’re needing the administrator password to access operating system diagnostic tools and this is your last effort to save your PC, performing a clean install will work.
Keep in mind that it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

I forgot my adminstrative password for dell dimension 2400 pc (windows xp)


Forgot Windows XP password? The first thing which you check is whether you forgot windows xp login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forgot your user account password then try this:
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.
Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. Or try free program called Ophcrack or Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.
