Is this computer a member of a domain or just local?
If a domain member, contact your administrator to reset the password for you.

If local (or in a workgroup)
Log in as a local administrator, then you may be able to reset your password.

When logging in, type, Administrator as the user name and type in your password (if you remember). Try password as blank first if you haven't set a password. Default password is usually 12345

Once logged in:

Click Start, right-click My Computer, select Manage.
Under Computer Management --> Expand System Tools --> Local Users and Groups, the select Users folder.

Locate your user name on the right pane, right-click on your username, then select Set Password. Change your password.

Pls let me know if this solution worked for you.

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

My administrator password


I dont understand the question, what about your admin password, did you lock it if you didnt set one then there is no password,
restart computer and click f7 as soon as it turns on, you will see a screen that says safemode, click safemode then administrator should be a user you can click on, try signing on without a password, if it wont let you then you have only a few choices,
If there isnt one and your having trouble runnin something as administrator then set an easy password on your admin account and use it every time. or make your username a Admin

My laptop does not recognize my password. It has not been turned on in a couple of weeks and no one has used it.


hi snooker
make sure you type the password in the letter case it was originally typed ie lower case (without caps lock) or upper case (with caps lock)

Locked out from pc? forgot password? how to change password?


If you are using Windows XP Professional there is an Admin Account Hidden. Thats if it isnt the current one.
Start your computer and repeatedly hit F8 for boot changes, start in "Safemode" or "Directory Services and Repairs"
If the Welcome screen shows Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del twice to get classic logon screen then Type Admin and if there is a Password enter it.

If you do log in, you should have the ability to change the account Password or create new one.

If you are Using XP Home Edition then theres not much luck unless you can think of the PW.
Your Best bet is to Backup and Reinstall Operating System
