Hey,

As you haven't made the password recovery diskette.. the password needs to be reset.

you can do this with a CD to reset the password OR you can tap the f8 button during the pc is starting up, untill the advanced start menu comes up, note that you need to press the button before the windows loading logo comes. select start in safe mode, in safe mode, login as administrator and no password. you should be able to login, then change the password to your useraccount, start -> control panel -> user accounts.

if you can do that, then there is a cd you can burn and use to reset the password. that cd is available at http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/

Thanks,
Ekse

I forgot my login administrator password for my dell xps window 7


Anonymous,
If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.
Thank You,

Forgot Dell windows password ?

If you have already have one, so just do as below:
Here are the steps to use the disk for your password recovery.
Step 1: If you enter the wrong password when you attempt to log on, Windows will display a message that the password is incorrect. Click "OK" to close the message box.
Step 2: Click "Reset Windows Password", and then insert Windows password reset disk (or other removable media).
Step 3: Follow the steps in the "Password Reset Wizard" to create a new password.
Step 4: Log on with the new password.


If you do not have a reset disk, you can use Windows Password Reset ( http://www.windowspasswordreset.net ) to create one.

Locked password


Locked Password where? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows User Account (userid) Password? And which operating system?

If it's the Bios Password, then you will need to remove the CMOS Battery and let the computer sit for a couple of hours. Then put the battery back in and try rebooting. You'll have to go back into the BIOS or Setup to put the correct date and time in but the password should be gone from memory.

If it's the Hard Drive Password, you're kinda out of luck. Hard drives are locked 99% of the time when the computer is stolen. The original owner either locked it while he had possession of it or he could have locked it remotely when it was stolen to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The only way around it is to have the original put the password in, or Purchase a new hard drive to put in the computer, reload the operating system, reload the drivers and reload application programs.

If it's the Windows Password for User Account turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the Safe Mode option to boot the computer. When it comes to the login screen it will show you the Administrator account and the Account for which you forgot or don't know the password. Log into the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it). When windows desktop comes up click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When the User Accounts window opens up click on the User Account for which you forgot the password then select Remove Password. Reboot the machine

Forgot password


The first thing you can try to do is login via the main Administrator account....usually there is not a password set on this account and it will allow you to remove the password on the account you forgot the password to.....follow these steps

Using The Admin account:
  1. Shut down the computer
  2. Start the computer
  3. As soon as the computer powers on tap the F8 key on the keyboard
  4. You will see a black screen with white lettering and a bunch of options , selct the top option which says "Safe Mode"
  5. Windows will load (and everything will look huge on the screen but that is ok!). When you get to the "Welcome!" screen you should see the administrator account...click on it to log in
Now you should be in Windows , to remove your password on the account you forgot:

  1. Click the "Start" button
  2. Click "Control Panel"
  3. Double Click on the "User Accounts" Icon
  4. Click on the account you want to remove the password from
  5. Click the link that says "Remove Password"
  6. Hit "Save"
  7. Restart the computer
Now you should be able to log directly into your account with no password. Once in the accoun tyou can follow the steps above to set a new password , instead of removing password @ step 5, click "Set New Password"
