Log into Safe Mode.

On startup, press F8. This will give you the 'bootup' selections for starting your computer.
Select Safe Mode. If you can get in, Press <CTRL> <ALT> <DELETE> and select 'Change Password'.

If this doesn't work, see if you can find someone that has a program called ERD Commander. This program will let you boot to the system and reset the administrator password.

How do i reset my password on my compaq notebook with windows xp with out a disk


In windows XP, an account with the user ID "Administrator" is automatically created with a blank password (or Administrator. I can't remember). If u haven't changed that password, boot in safe mode and log on using that account and change the passwords through User acounts in control panel.

Bought a new compaq presario CQ56 and after entering new log on password, it will now not recognise it when i attempt to log on. the pass word hint is there which i created, but the password keeps saying...


try another administrator user OR try restating in safe mode, (F8 on startup - safe mode with or without networking doesn't really matter) if you can chose administrator and have that password (if any) you can go to the user control in teh control panel and reset the password for your account there.

LOG IN PROBLEMS


Try the following. Boot your computer and press F8 while its starting. From the screen that eventually appears select Safe Mode. When your system boots in Safe Mode, you should have the option to log in as Administrator. Try logging in as Administrator. If you get in, then go to Control Panel and Users and change the password for your account. Let me know how you did.
