You have few options for login to windows, without entering a password.

1. Add another hard drive to your machine, then try to boot through this hard drive. you just go to your hard drives in my computer and open your system drive (here the volume name may be different).

go to system32(windows xp) in your hard drive and you will find one file "SAM". now remove that file.

after deleting the file. you have to reboot your machine, now login to your windows. here you can login without providing the password.

2. this is the second option, commonly helpful for all. downloading the password recovery boot software. by using of this option you can find the same thing without provide the password.


thank you.

How to Bypass Windows Password With Ease?


Nowadays, it comes a common sense to add a BIOS or Windows password for laptop protected. Thus, a feasible advice is to create a Windows password disk in case that you forgot Windows password. But without Windows password reset disk, what should we do in order to bypass Windows password?

It's time to learn how to bypass Windows password with the following two tips and tricks.

Method 1: Bypass Windows password by Safe Mode with Command Prompt

According to Wiki, Safe Mode is a diagnostic mode of a computer Operating System (OS), a special way for Windows to load when a system-critical problem interfering with normal operation of Windows. If you are not able to boot your computer in normal mode or supposed your notebook is infected with Trojans or malware, you are able to get rid of them with Safe Mode. Furthermore, it is easier and safer to bypass Windows password in Safe Mode when you lost or forgot Windows password.

Take Windows 7 for example: there are 3 different types of safe mode: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt. Below is a guide on how to bypass Windows 7 password with Safe Mode with Command Prompt, which allows you to bypass Windows password with command line. Detailed steps are as follow:

Step 1. Boot or reboot your Windows 7 computer.
Step 2. Press F8 to enter Advanced Boot Options before the Windows 7 loading screen appears.
Step 3. Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt in the coming screen, then Press Enter.
Step 4. Wait for Windows 7 files to load until Windows login screen comes up.
Step 5. Log in with an administrator account when you see logon screen.
Step 6. A Command Prompt appears.Type net user in the Command Prompt and then hit Enter. All Windows user account names will be listed for you.
Step 7. Type net user 'Alina 123' and hit Enter.
Step 8. The new password has been successfully reset when the command is completed successfully.
Step 9. Log on your PC with the new password.

Note: 'Alina' is your locked Windows user account name. And '123' means the new password you want to reset for the locked account.
Whenever you need to log on to Safe Mode, an administrator account password is necessary. So it is highly recommended you to write Windows password down and sotre it or creating a Windows password recovery disk before lost/forgot Windows password.

Method 2: Bypass Windows password with Windows Password Unlocker

However, if you haven't created a password reset disk and forgot all administrator account password, it's better for you to bypass Windows 7 password with Windows password reset software. These reset software allow you to bypass Windows passwordwith a USB flash drive or bootable CD/DVD. Windows Password Unlocker Professional is one of the best choice to reset or change Windows password in a while.

Go through with these steps and recover Windows password with ease!
Step 1. Download Windows Password Unlocker Professional and install it in any computer.
Step 2. Run the program and burn an ISO image file into a blank CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
Step 3. Start your locked computer from the bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.
Step 4. bypass Windows password successfully.
Of course, there are some other methods of bypassing Windows 7 password. Picking up a suitable and efficient one to bypass Windows password is a necessity.

Forgot Windows 7 Password - What Should You Do to Log on Your Computer?


Just as Tom Hanks said in the famous movie Forrest Gump, "Life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you gonna get." As a Microsoft Windows version launched for only 9 months, Windows 7 has overtaken Windows vista in global market share according to California-based Net Applications. It moves up to the second place in the Microsoft's OS, with 14.46 percent of the global market last month compared to Vista's 14.43 percent.

As a common PC user, I don't know whether Windows 7 will surpass Windows XP, which still has a lion's share of users worldwide after released for 9 years. I also don't know when Windows 7 will pass Windows XP if it is able to overtake. But as a common PC user often forgetting Windows password, I do know some ways to log on computer again if one forgot Windows 7 password.

The most well-known method is to create a password reset disk in advance. And when you forgot Windows 7 password, you can reset Windows 7 password with the disk and log on your computer again. The steps to create a password reset disk and how to use the disk to reset forgotten Windows password are available on Microsoft official website and various PC forums. Here I introduce you another effective way to regain access to computer if you forgot Windows 7 password. That is to reset lost password with Windows password recovery software, which can help you to reset Windows password with a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. Following are steps to recover Windows 7 password by burning a USB flash drive.

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery and install in a computer.

Download Windows Login Recovery from official website, and then install it.

Step 2: Burn a USB drive to reset forgotten Windows password.

Follow the step-by-step guide to burn a USB drive to reset lost Windows 7 password after running Windows Login Recovery (the detailed user guide). After burning, insert the burned USB flash drive in the computer that you forgot Windows 7 password.

Step 3: Set BIOS to boot from USB.

1. Start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup during the initial startup screen.

2. Use the arrow keys to select the Boot tab, and then select Hard Disk Drivers and press Enter.

3. Adjust USB to 1st Drive, and then press F10 to save.

The computer will restart automatically, and then you can start to remove the forgotten Windows 7 password under DOS.

Note: What key is pressed to enter BIOS depends on the manufacturers, but in most cases it is F2 or Delete.

Step 4: Remove the forgotten Windows password.

1. Choose the installation path of Windows, and enter the ID of the path. All user names will be displayed for you.

2. Select the user name you want to remove its password by entering the ID of the User Name. And then enter y to confirm and continue.

3. After removing the password for the selected user name, you can enter y to continue to reset passwords of other user names, or enter n to restart computer. And now you can log on computer without password.

Important: After selecting n to restart computer, please remember to press any press, and then take the burned USB flash drive out of computer.

After the above simple steps, your forgotten Windows password is removed so that you can log on your computer without password. This method can not only help you reset forgotten Windows 7 password, but also help you regain access to computer again when you forgot Windows password on Windows Vista, Windows XP and son. And there are 2 different editions of Windows Login Recovery for your choice according to your actual password.

Hdd password ,how 2 retervie


There are no backdoor passwords available. The password cannot be removed from the hard disk unless you know the original password to get into the hard disk and you can then remove the password.
Hard drive password is set to protect data stored on the hard drive from unauthorized access. Removing the hard drive and inserting it into another computer still will not allow access without the password.
If you cannot remember the password, your only options is to replace the hard drive with a new one and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs etc. to get a fully functioning computer again.

Dell inspiron password removal hdd


Usually, the hdd password is set the same as bios password. So we can recover the BIOS password directly from the laptop security chip. But if the hdd password is set not the same as bios password, how do you remove hdd password for Dell inspiron?

Therefore, you have to use password cracker only. If you still remember hard disk password, or you remember bios password and bios password is the same as hard drive password, follows the below article to remove it.

Forgot startup password


For the Windows password you will need to reformat your hard drive. If that would not be done or if there is another way of removing the password without removing and reinstalling the operating system or of using your laptop by working around, windows password does not make sense at all. Hope this helps. Thank you.
