Administration Password Lost

HI
I have a Dimension 5150 my problem is that I have forgotten my admin password as I have not used it for some time. I have 2 other accounts setup for my children but they do not have administrator rights and I need to install new software but cannot because of the rights issue. Can anyone help with a fix to remove my password. I don't have the XP disk but I believe Windows XP can be re-installed using a function key at bootup but I will lose my childrens homework and games.

Thanks in anticipation

Steve

Hi, its very easy to reset password for bios.

You have two methods to rest on two different conditions.

First if you want to re-set in normal mode and a second thing if you have forgotten the password.

First of all enter into Bios Setup then Security and Reset your password.

Second if you have forgotten your password and you need to reset without power on your computer take these steps;

1. Uncover your computer
2. See a jumper near to hard connector. This jumper sets on two legs total of three and one leg free.
3. Changer jumper side ... It sets on free leg and then one leg will free.

7. Start your computer enter into Bios without any password. Now you can set your password from security tab again.

How to Reset Windows Vista Administrator Password with Three Simple Methods?


Have you ever experienced Windows Vista administrator password forgot? Absolutely, there is nothing worse than forgot your Windows admin password when you have a great deal of work to do on your PC. Even though you can enter your computer with a standard user account, you still could not download anything and install programs on your PC. Therefore, how to reset or recover Windows Vista administrator password efficiently?

Here we will show the top three easy and efficient Windows Vista admin password recovery methods to anyone who have Windows Vista admin password forgotten issues.

Method 1: Reset Windows Vista administrator password on safe mode

Preparation Time: about 10 minutes
Pros: Simple and do not need third party tools
Cons: Need an available admin account on your Vista PC

You can reset Vista administrator password on command prompt with an available admin account to enter safe mode first. If you have another Windows Vista admin account, try these steps below:

Step 1: Press F8 when your Windows Vista PC is booting. You will come to the Advanced Boot Options. Then choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt and press Enter.

Step 2: Enter safe mode with an available admin account.

Step 3: Type "net user" and press Enter. The command prompt will show you all accounts on the Windows Vista PC.

Step 4: Type "net user Paul 123" (Paul is the locked admin account's name and 123 is the new password) and press Enter. Now you have successfully created a new password on the locked admin account.

Step 5: Type "shutdown -r -t 00" and press Enter.

Your Windows Vista PC should be rebooted automatically and then you can logon Windows Vista with the new password.

Method 2: Recover Windows Vista administrator password with freeware

Preparation Time: More than 30 minutes

I'm gonna venture to guess you are running XP home or media center.  There are utilities readily avaialble that can help you reset your password. I use this one and it will work on all flavors of Windows including 2000, xp and vista.
I use the one you can find here and though the version i have does not advertise it, i have used it on Vista with success.  It may be a bit compicated if you don't understand the lingo.  I would suggest this be a good time to make up with that geek you mistreated in school and get him/her to come over and help with it.
If you are that geek, then you should have no issue with this.
Good Luck
