Dear Tured:
If you set the password for windows please try the steps below if it is bios password you need to contact your computer manufacturer

  1. Reboot your machine.
  2. Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.
  3. You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.
  4. Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.
  5. Click through several self-explanatory screens until your reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
  6. Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You will not be able to change this mode even in Display options, while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
  7. Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be no password for this account.
    • The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other users on your system.
  8. Login as the admin.
  9. Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue using Safe Mode.
  10. Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can change any of the other passwords for user on the machine. Make any changes you want.
  11. Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys (i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup normally.
  12. Login as the user for which you set the password.

Asking for password before system. Boots


Maybe you forgot the pass or some users put pass on your system or account..You can salvage your old user account by logging on as the "Administrator" user. Once you're logged in as the admin, you can reset your old user password. The Administrator user (by default) is similar to a "superuser" and has the highest access level to reset any user password.
If you don't know what your Administrator password is, you can reset that by rebooting into Safe Mode.
The best option here is to reset your account password. You can do this using either 1 of the 2 methods suggested by Microsoft Knowledge Base article #321305. In my opinion, the second method described on this page is most likely the easiest route: Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2 Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Good luck!
Side note: To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.


You can reset a lost or "forgot Windows password" with 4 methods below:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like "Windows Password Breaker".
4. Re-install. Will lose data.
goodluck and hope this helps.pls rate ..thanks

Forgot password admin


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

If it is Windows admin password the one you forgot, and you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. Also try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank, otherwise try one of the following:

- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use third party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your login password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html

I forgot my adminstative password how do i get a new 1


If this is still the original OS that was pre-installed from the factory and did not put a password on the original administrator, you may boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 during the boot up and logging on to the Administrator account. Go to User Accounts inside Control Panel and then change or delete the password for the user-administrator account.

Forgot password


Hi Laurence,

Try going to safe mode by tapping F8 on startup.
login with the admin account. By default the password is blank so you should be able to login.

Now go to control panel > user accounts > select your account and click change password or delete password.
else create a new profile.

If you are unable to login with the admin as well then you you

that should fix it..

I put a password on my computer & then made a Guest Acct and i forgot my password. Is there anyway to get it reset or something?


log in as an administrator account then from there you can delete the guest account and create a new one.

if you do not know the administrator account then you need to go into safe mode for the computer. to get to safemode, just press F8 while the computer is booting up until you are given a menu. From the menu, simply select "Safe mode" and then login to the un-passsworded admin account. once you are inside just delete the guest account there and create a new one.

Forgot Administrative password


I got the following from the windows help and support:

OPTION 1
Using a password reset disk is the best solution.
  1. If you have typed the wrong password, you'll get a message that says your user name or password is incorrect. When this message appears, click OK.
  2. Click Reset password, and then follow the instructions.
OPTION 2

If there is another administrator account on the computer, that administrator can change the password for the account you can't remember the password for. If you do this, however, you will lose access to any encrypted files, encrypted e‑mail messages, and passwords stored on this account. If you don't have encrypted files or stored passwords, then this option will work for you


OPTION 3

If you don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows. In this case, you will need to re-install Windows.
