Someone changed my pass word to my dell vostro and my back up flash drive broken


You need to get the password!


Get them to unlock / give you the password. This can be more serious than expected.

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is availible) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

Lost administrator pass and i have only access to my system my wife and i share the same computer. i dont know how but one of us or our grand daughter lost the administrator pass word and we only have...


so im guessing that your problem is that you want the Administrator password back?
in this case, there is one thing you could do. It's called "Offline NT Password and Registry editor" and you can download it here. You can use this program to change administrator passwords, elevate privilege levels and create new accounts with administrator settings. Read up on it, give it a go. Let me know how it works for you.

Try by logging in with the administrator account. You can do this by pressing F8 while windows starts and choosing to boot into Safe Mode. Then select the Administrator account. You can then edit/change user settings once logged in.

If this does not work (like when there's a password assigned to the administrator account as well), your only solution is to do a clean install of windows xp. This is not ideal, though, as you'll lose the data on your drive (for example all files under my documents/pictures/music and the desktop.

Good luck.

How do i reset the pass work on my thinkpad. somebody changed it and wont give the new pass word to me


If you remember your administrator password, or if your administrator has no password, simply start your laptop in safe mode. Do this by pressing F8, a list of options will be displayed. Select Safe Mode.

In safe mode, it will ask you for the account to log in with, select "administrator" and log in.
When you successfully log in, delete the user account with the changed password and create a new account with your password.

"The display control panel is unable to change display settings. You may not have appropriate administrator roghts to change this settings"


two thoughts...one...try and do it anyway...it just may be a nag and let you pass if you are the administrator.
second...who ever log on first is the administrator. Log off and Log back on in that position.
Another though- (three) if you have guest log on, turn it off on the control panel (USERS) and that may make the machine understand who the administrator is.
Hope this helps you my friend...good fortune

My little sister put a pass code on the log in screen. She does not have this computer anymore and i can"t change eneything on the computer. the reinstall disc i have will not work becacuse her pro...


One thing you should try first is to get ahold of your sister and get the pass word from her. Then you can go in to her account and go to controll pannel then to user profiles, then change a profile, select your profile and set it to administrator. This will give you the permissions to change things on the computer. If you are unable to get ahold of her, you can also go the route of pressing F8 at start up, and select safe mode as your start up choice. Once you get to the log in screen select Administrator, hopefully she has not changed the settings for this account. If you are able to log into the puter this way then simply go into controll pannel and do the same with your account. Change it to administrator. Then restart the computer and log into your account as normal.
