Locked administrator


For Windows Password:
1. Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box.
2. Type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank.
3. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you should be able to 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 Log in screen.

I have a compaq c300 and i have forgotton my log on to windows password? i have tried the battery and cmos battery removal bu still nothing can you help please?


On the log on screen, click anywhere so that it doesn't show the password input, then press keys, ALT + CTRL + DEL in that order.
on the log on screen that pops up, type in Administrator as your user name, just press enter, if it wasn't installed using a password, you will be able to log on, and from there you can go to control panel and reset your password

Power on password


If this is a Windows password, then you will need to enter safe mode at start up by pressing F8. Once you're in safe mode, log on as administrator, from here you can clear any user passwords. Now if this is a bios password, then you will need to contact Compaq support.

Power up pasword


the windows log on password can be deleted by:- press F8 on start up and enter safe mode and highlight start windows in safe mode, and log in windows using administrator account and go to user accounts and profiles and in the other log on account delete the password and restart windows. If you mean the bios password only removing the cmos disc shaped battery on the motherboard for 5 minutes or so can delete the password.
