If prompted for a password try simply pressing Enter on the keyboard for no password. If this does not work, try other passwords you may have used. If you're unable to log into the Administrator account skip to the next suggestion.
3 Once you've logged into the Administrator account open Control Panel and User Accounts.
4 In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.

Method Two: Using the forgotten password diskette

How do i login on as administrator on my computer?


Login With the Administrator Account in Windows XP Professional

Click the "Start" menu and then click "Log Off."

Click "Switch User" when the prompt screen opens.

Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete."

Click on "Administrator" when the "Log on to Windows" screen pops up. Type in the administrator password, if applicable.

Click "OK." You will now be logged in as the administrator.



Log On as An Administrator in Windows Vista

Start your computer and allow it to continue through its startup process. By default your computer will simply load directly to the primary user account (usually the administrator account), but if there are multiple users on the system it will load to the account login screen.

Use the mouse to click on the administrator account from the list of available accounts to log on. This step is only necessary if you've customized Windows Vista with more than one account or you have set the operating system to load the login screen first.

Enter the password required in the password field to log on to the administrator account.

Click the "OK" or "Log On" button once you have entered the password. This button may be labeled differently depending on the version of Windows Vista or any GUI (graphical user interface) changes you may have made.
Log on as an administrator from within the Windows Vista environment by clicking on "Start" and then "Log Off." As soon as you have logged off, you will be returned to the login screen where you can choose the administrator account from the available list.

I can not reset my windows password


This only works if your account isn't already the "Administrator" account. It will work if your account is just an account with administrator rights.
Boot into Safe Mode, log in as Administrator, change your password:
1) Turn off your computer.
2) Turn it back on while repeatedly tapping the "F8" key.
3) Use your arrow keys to select the option to boot to Safe Mode and press Enter.
4) In Safe Mode, log in as the Administrator
5) Open the Control Panel
6) Go to User Accounts
7) Click on your account
8) Click on "Change the password"

Computer pc pass word forgotten


You should actually have 2 accounts. One is called Administrator and appears when you start your operating system in safe mode. It has no password by default so you should still be able to access it.

Restart your computer and keep hitting 'F8' until you're prompted with a menu. Select something along the lines of 'Start Windows In Safe Mode' and Windows will load. Just login to the administrator account and remove the password.
It might also be a good idea to put a password on the admin account and keep it somewhere safe.

If that doesn't work then reset the password via the jumpers on the MOBO. See below:

Assuming that you have a Pentium Processor:

Shut down your PC. Detach Power plug. Open your CPU case. Touch casing or metal to ensure grounding. You will see 3 pins on the mother board. In that 3 pins first 2 pins are closed with a jumper. Take the jumper off & replace it on the other two pins. Now try to turn on your PC. It should open Windows without asking you for password.
