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.

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.

I forgot my Administrator Password


Here's How To Recover the Password

It's a little bit tricky, but it work's my dear..

SULOTION/S:

The problem here is the Setup program did not complete properly. During the Setup operation, Windows assigns temporary passwords to each user account; these passwords are stored in a file called setupact.log in your Windows installation folder. When the Setup program completes properly, these temporary passwords are cleared, allowing you to set up your own password. But if the Setup program does not complete properly, the passwords are retained.

To resolve this problem, find the setupact.log file and locate an entry that reads

“Random password for Username is [password].”

Write down the password exactly as it’s written and use it to log on to the account. How you do this depends on whether you configured your file system as FAT32 or NTFS.

If the file system is FAT32, restart your system using a WinMe or Win98 startup disk. At the command prompt, type edit c:\windows\setupact.log and follow the instructions above to locate the password.

If the file system is NTFS, configure your BIOS settings so the computer boots from the CD drive and insert your WinXP installation CD into your CD-ROM drive. Restart the computer, and at the prompt press any key to boot from the CD. Press r at the Welcome To Setup screen to launch the Recovery Console and then press ENTER when prompted for the administrator password. At the command prompt, input type setupact.log and press ENTER. Make a note of the password associated with each account. Restart the computer and use the retrieved password to log on to the user account.

Cheers!
