Hi I have a problem. I forgot my password to log in and need to reset my password on my laptop. I didn't create a password reset disk, so I can't use a USB flash drive to reset it.

If you can, burn a cd with the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor on it.
here. Just grab the cd Image if you want to burn it to a disc
(You can use any free program like Deep-Burner, or Active-Iso to burn the image.
You can also get a floppy version, and a usb version.
The cd you will create will be bootable, so just start up your Laptop with the disc in the drive.
This utility only resets the password, if you want to recover it, you can use an Ophcrack Live Cd, available here. You can burn the iso file with Active-Iso also.

If you have Win XP, when you start up your computer, hold down the F8 key. A boot menu will appear. Select Safe Mode. If you click your user name, an "administrator" user will appear in the list of users on your system. If you type in your user name, type "administrator", there is no password required. Once you are logged in as administrator, go to the User control panel and click your normal user name and click change password, create a password and you'll all set. If you use Win Vista, there is no way to recover your password. If you have system restore discs, use them to restore your system, remember, all your personal files will be lost and your computer will return to its original factory default settings.

A friend said he changed his laptop password but forgot it. Now he is looking for the help.

May be this is also your problem.
If you are regularly suing a Windows laptop, It's always a good idea to password protect it, even if you are its aole user. If you forgot your password at any time, you will need to reset it. You need to create a password reset disk being able to reset your password. If you know your password, but you just need to change it for security purpose, you can do that quickly as well.

Today I want to introduce some easy and simple ways for you.

Method 1: Create Password Reset Disk

1)Turn on your laptop.

2)Insert a USB flash drive or download other password key ( take Password Recovery Bundle
for example,

). According to Microsoft, you can only create one if you are a local user. If your computer is on a network or domain, an administrator must reset your password.

3)Click the "Start" buttom. Click "Control Panel". "Open" user Accounts and Family Safety. "Click" User Accounts".

4)On the left-hand side, click "Browse" to browse 0 image file. The file is usually located as the default. Follow the instrution. When completed, then you can access if you need to reset your password.

Method 2: Reset password
Turn on your laptop and log in to Windows. If you cannot log in because you enter the wrong password, Windows will show a message that you entered an incorrect password. Click "OK"
Click "Reset Password"
Insert your password reset disk drive.
Follow the instruction in the Password Reset wizard. This will allow you to create a new password. Log in to Windows with the new password. You can use the same password reset disk any time if you need to reset your password.

Method 3: Change Password
Turn on your laptop and log in to Windows.
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete. A new screen will appear that gives you several options.
Click "Change a Password".
Type in your old password. Type in a new password. Type your new password again. Press Enter.
Write down your new password and keep it in a safe place or remember by your heart .

Click to open User accounts. 2.In the left pane click create a "password reset disk" and then follow the instructions. 3.Now you can reset your password with this password reset disk. 4.Log on the computer and windows displays a "incorrect password". Click OK. 5.Click "reset password" and then your USB flash drive. 6.Follow the instructions. 7.Log with a new password. Hope this might help. I've tried this.

I cannot use my DELL Laptop because I forgot my password.


Hi, once you forgot your password and for no reason to recall it. Just press cntrl-alt-del keys simultaneously and log in using username=administrator and password is none. The default username of your computer if not altered is administrator. Once you successfully logged in you can edit your forgotten password in users properties.

I think probably the easiest and safest wayfor you is remove your windows password with Windows Password Seeker. I found it at about.com PC support channel last week, and used it to remove the lost passwordwithin 5 minutes. Importantly, the useful tool no need to reinstall Windows. It's worth a try.
