I have set up an admin password and now i have forgot it what can i do?


Which operating system u are using? If it is xp then u can try one thing. Immediately after powering the pc on start tapping the F8 key. U will find that key accross the top of the keyboard. if u are tapping the F8 key a screen is supposed to come up with some options like: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe mode with command prompt etc. Using the up/down arrow keys on the keyboard select safe mode and hit enter. It will load some files and then it will come to the log on screen. U will find an admin account there. Hope the admin account that u have created has been provided with some name. Dont click on that. Click on the admin account. It is not supposed to ask for any pwd. Once u see the desktop screen i hope u know what u are supposed to do. And choose a password that u will not forget. But if it is windows vista or win7 then u will have to reformat the hdd.

I know an administrator tool for Windows password reset, Windows Password Breaker, which can easily reset forgotten Windows password to blank without reinstall. you can have a try.

Or 6 ways for Windows 7 password reset could also be helpful.

Asking for password before system. Boots


Maybe you forgot the pass or some users put pass on your system or account..You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.


You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
4. Re-install. Will lose data.
goodluck and hope this helps.pls rate ..thanks

Forgot admin. passsword


Dear Tured:
If you set the password for windows please try the steps below if it is bios password you need to contact your computer manufacturer
  1. Reboot your machine.
  2. Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.
  3. You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.
  4. Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.
  5. Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
  6. Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
  7. Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
    • The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other users on your system.
  8. Login as the admin.
  9. Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue using Safe Mode.
  10. Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
  11. Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.
  12. Login as the user for which you set the password.
