If you lost your password on a desktop pc, then the best solution is to clear all passwords; you can do this by opening the case of your computer, locating the CMOS and unseating this connection for a few seconds, this will reset the BIOS and allow you to enter a new password. If you do not know what the CMOS looks like, it is a little connection pin that resembles the pins on the back of your optical drive only it is located directly on your motherboard. You can also type in the name of your motherboard in IE and get a manual for your MB to see a visual of where this connection is located. Hope this helped.

How to create a password reset disk
To create a password reset disk for your local user account, use one of the following methods.

Requirements
The following methods require one blank, formatted floppy disk.

Use a computer administrator account
If you logged on to the computer by using an administrator account, follow these steps to create a password reset disk for a user account:
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click User Accounts.
  3. In the User Accounts pane, click the account that you want to work with.
  4. Under Related Tasks, click Prevent a forgotten password to start the Forgotten Password Wizard, and then click Next.

  6. In the Current user account password box, type the password for the user account that you chose in step 3, and then click Next.

    Note If the user account does not have a password, do not type a password in the Current user account password box.

    The Forgotten Password Wizard creates the disk.
  7. When the Progress bar reaches 100% complete, click Next, and then click Finish.
  8. Remove and then label the password reset disk. Store the disk in a safe place.
Use a limited account
If you logged on to the computer by using a limited account, follow these steps to create a password reset disk for your user account:
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Under Pick a category, click User Accounts.
  3. Under Related Tasks, click Prevent a forgotten password to start the Forgotten Password Wizard.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Insert a blank, formatted disk into drive A, and then click Next.
  6. In the Current user account password box, type your password, and then click Next.

    Note If your user account does not have a password, do not type a password in the Current user account password box.

    The Forgotten Password Wizard creates the disk.
  7. When the Progress bar reaches 100% complete, click Next, and then click Finish.
  8. Remove and then label the password reset disk. Store the disk in a safe place.
How to log on to the computer by using a password reset disk
If you forget your password, you can log on to the computer by using a new password that you create by using the Password Reset Wizard and your password reset disk. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Windows XP logon screen, click the user name that you want to use. The Type your password box appears. Press ENTER or click the right-arrow button. You receive the following error message: Did you forget your password?
    You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.
    Or you can use your password reset disk.

    Please type your password again.
    Be sure to use the correct uppercase and lowercase letters.
  2. Click use your password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard starts. The Password Reset Wizard permits you to create a new password for your user account.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Insert the password reset disk into drive A, and then click Next.
  5. Type a new password in the Type a new password box.
  6. Type the same password in the Type the password again to confirm box.
  7. In the Type a new password hint box, type a hint to remind you of your password if you forget the new password.

    Note This hint is visible to anyone who tries to log on to the computer by using your user account.
  8. Click Next, and then click Finish. The Password Reset Wizard quits, and you return to the Windows XP logon screen.

    Note The password reset disk is automatically updated with the new password information. You do not have to create a new password reset disk.
  9. Type your new password in the Type your password box, and then click the right-arrow button to log on to the computer.
Troubleshooting
  • The password reset disk cannot be used to reset the password on another computer.

    The password reset disk that you create can only be used with the computer it was created on. For example, if you have two Windows XP-based computers that have the same user names and passwords, a password reset disk that you create on the first computer cannot be used to reset the password on the second computer.
  • The password reset disk contains sensitive information.

    Other users may be able to use the password reset disk to gain access to your computer. For this reason, store this disk in a safe and secure location.

Password Recovery Disk


Hi,

Take preventive measures against losing user-level passwords.

It doesn't matter if you never again remember a Windows user password. Thanks to XP's Forgotten Password Wizard, your conscience will be free and clear -- should your mind happen to accidentally misplace your user password.

I highly suggest you create a password recovery disk the minute you create your user account. Why? In order to create a password recovery disk you're going to need your password. Write it down the minute you create your user account and then proceed to creating your very own password recovery disk.

Here's how to launch the Forgotten Password Wizard:


Single-click Start menu, Control Panel, and User Accounts.
Click your user account name.
Under Related Tasks on the left, click "Prevent forgotten password" to launch the wizard.

Now that you've launched the wizard, let it walk you through creating the recovery disk. Make sure the disk you use is formatted and in the drive. After it's finished creating the disk, label it and stash it away for an emergency.


If you happen to forget your password, all you need to do is click your user icon at the logon screen. Even though you don't have your password, go ahead and click the green arrow just like you would to finish logging on to your computer. This will launch a little yellow dialog box directing you to use your password recovery disk.


Good luck!

Bhautesh.
