This can be done in the Administrator Account that is in the Safe Mode Option


To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard(Before you see windows). On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.

Click on the Administrator (if there is a password and that is not working then format the system)

in the Administrator account Click
Start >> Control Panel >> User Account >> click on the account name and then click on Change Password

Microsoft.com used to have a password reset program you can download for XP. I've been told it's been removed.

If you can't find it, youre only choice is to reload Windows.

You may be able to get in with the default administrator account.
when you get to the welcome screen, press control/alt/del together.
this will open up a dialog box where you can type in user names/passwords.
There are two accounts you can try here:
try the Administrator account and the Guest account. Try them both with no passwords and try the administrator one with the same password your account had.
You can also type into this box to verify your keyboard is working properly (caps lock off, all keys working, etc).
Finally, if none of this works, try booting in to safe mode and logging in through there.

If worse comes to worse, there are a couple of free programs you can install on a cd and upon boot they will reset the administrator password.

Need to reset primary master HDD password


Sounds like you were on the right track already.


Lost Windows password:


  • 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 available) 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

I forgot my password


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://www.fixya.com/support/r7872121-methods_reset_windows_xp_password- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use third party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your login password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html
