Enter safe mode at start up, log in as administrator, from here you can clear any user passwords from the user accounts section.

Step3:Put in my newly created CD and remove my Windows Password.

Foregot password


  1. Pop in the recovery disc (will lose everything on the hard drive)
  2. Hit the action kep during setup and make changes there (not for newbs).
  3. Find a password recovery utility on the net (may need to pay small $$).
  4. Ask your local techy to do it for you.

I HAVE FORGOTTEN MY ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD


yes there is 1 dont talk in all caps it doesnt solve the problem better. 2 turn off your computer and start in safe mode (press F8 or del varies on the computer before windows starts booting) log onto the extra account that will now be there and go to you user account controls and remove the password on the account you forgot (you will not be asked what the previous password was). restart and log into your account and reset the password. its happened to me before :D

Laptop again lol


Is this a Windows password after the machine boots, or is this a bios or power on password before booting to the windows screen? If it's a Windows password, try running a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If it's a bios password get back to me and I'll send you a couple of links. In order to clear a bios password you'll need to Contact Dell support. The links will help only if it's a bios password. Let me know.

Aspire 3690 again ha


When you start the machine keep pressing F8 until the machine boots, it should boot straight into safe mode. Safe mode will look different from the regular Windows mode. Once safe mode has opened there will be user boxes, one with your son's user account, one with administrator account, and possibly one with the guest account. Click on the administrator account. This is where you need to be in order to clear the password.

Well, here is a tip from someone:
http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=305
or, you can buy commercial software such as this:
http://www.password-changer.com/

I cannot personally vouch for either one, just some ideas. Google "reset admin password" for more ideas or similar software.
