How to reset admin password with the cmd when you are a standard user


What's your operating system? After logging in as standard user, you have insufficient privileges to change the admin password via cmd. You need to boot with Windows install media, and replace sethc.exe with cmd.exe. When rebooting to the login screen, you can launch a command prompt and reset your password there.

Supervisor password


A Supervisor password protects the system information stored in the BIOS. The user must enter the Supervisor password in order to get access to the ThinkPad BIOS Setup Utility in order to change the system configuration. If the Supervisor password is forgotten there is no way to reset it to enter the BIOS configuration. Setting a Supervisor password automatically sets the master Hard drive password. The following is the icon that comes up in the upper left corner if a Supervisor password is set:
A forgotten Supervisor password will prevent access to the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility. To regain access, the system will need to be serviced to have the system board and hard drive replaced. Proof of purchase is required, and this repair is not covered under the warranty.

Administrator password forgotten


well before i begin i will assume that you've really forgotten your admin's pass ;)
but since i'm new here and i don't know if giving a few steps of a dos techninque would be concidered somehow inappropriate (awaiting the approuval of the admin of this site) i would suggest a tool that could be used for free if you can wait 72 hours before getting the pass ..

NB: all links i would put in here to help you guys are legal and been tested at least once by me :) so good luck ..
