Preferred Solution: Forgot my admin password/bios password

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Call me a dunce....but I have a problem. I locked myself out of my administrator account and I can't go into safe mode because I also forgot my BIOS password. I really don't want to have to open up my computer and remove the BIOS, is there any other solutions that don't involve turning off my computer?

Im running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3

Hello, I gave my notebook to a friend of mine a year ago and they set a bios password that they can't remember.I called HP Kenya and they told me to contact their agent whom advised me to buy a new motherboard.Is there something that can be done other than disposing what I have? I only need to enable the virtualisation in the bios and have to access it first.

Dear Customer, Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks  or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.It should read something like ?If one of the following Windows installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it?Use the up and down arrow keys to select your installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically ? you will see a progress bar stating ?Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds?9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of ?pressing any key? to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you've made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.

Anyhow, we Created a seperate Sign in account when you log on and it was set up with no restrictions, and we are not having any problems at all. We just simply forgot the Administrative password.

You forgot your account password or the account named administrator. If you have an account with administrative privileges you can just reset the administrator's password with that account.

Hi dfs98,

HACKING IS ILLEGAL AND WRONG! IF THIS IS NOT YOUR COMPUTER, DO NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS! If this is your Windows password (when you try to log onto your account) rather than your BIOS password, go to: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/ and click ?Bootdisk? at the top. Scroll down to about half-way to the download page. Download the latest CD release and extract the zip file.

Install the HP tool included with this post, start it, and select a blank memory stick. Make sure ALL data is backed up, as the memory stick will be wiped. Select FAT and type a Voulume name if you wish. Check create a DOS start up disk, and select the downloaded CD image.

Once you have made your memory stick, boot into it (you may have to change your BIOS settings) and then follow the instructions in the walkthrough provided by the site. I have included a copy of this walkthrough as a Word document. I have also listed a summary of which buttons to press. Follow these instructions exactly. This will work from NT to Windows 7, and so many options do not apply to Vista, and you will do much damage in running them.

Here is the summary (and included at the bottom of the document) :

? Enter
? Select Windows partion using numbers then enter
? Enter
? 1 then enter
? 1 then enter again
? Enter account name then enter
? 1 then enter
? ! then enter
? q then enter
? y then enter
? n then enter

I would recommend following the walkthrough, and only using the summary to check you have not missed a step. I would recommend printing off the walkthrough, though you could have it on another computer screen.

I am sorry to hear that.
You can reset password with  a password reset disk, which is a recommended way. If you have no disk, you can reset password by another workable admin account, just login as the workable admin account, go to User Account and change the locked account password. You can use a Windows password recovery tool if these two ways can't work for you, please choose a reliable one if you want.

Run it to create a boot floppy then follow the instructions. If you choose to do this then you are doing this at your own risk. Just change the admin pw and login then change the account pw's that you desire.

Make sure you have a floppy disk in the floppy drive and let the program create the boot floppy. Now restart the machine a let it boot from the floppy. Now follow what it instructs you to do.

Use it like a bootdisk.

NTAccess can replace the administrator password of a Windows XP, Windows NT or Windows 2000 system by rebooting the computer with a special set of boot disks or CD-ROM (XP only). This is useful if you forgot the administrator password and cannot access the Windows XP/2000/NT system.

Try accessing the built-in Administrator account, which should have a default password unless you changed it.

XP Pro - At the logon screen, press ctrl+alt+del twice. For the username type "Administrator" and leave the password blank. You should be able to log in and reset the password for your account.

XP Home - In XP Home, you can only access the built-in admin account from Safe Mode. Reboot into Safe Mode (reboot while tapping F8 repeatedly) and you should be able to access the Administrator account at the login.

Hi sivakesava574,
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. However you can try out the steps offered in the link below.

I bought a computer from a snake , he gave me microsoft office 2000 professional ,but took the software with him and left me no product # or anything.Also he won't return any of my phone calls. But that's not the problem ..the problem is that I forgot my password. I was planning to never turn my computer off so that it would never be an issue.But I did and now I can't log on to windows to even get in the start up menu. Please someone Help me tell me what I can do. Support from Microsoft can't help your my last hope.

Try booting up in safe mode to see if you can access your administrator's account.

Hope I didn't break any rules, just hoping to give some help.

so i forgot my admin password and am stuck with only being able to login with the guest account so Im limited on what I can do like I tried to change the sticky keys to the command prompt shortcut but I need the password in order to do that. also when I try to reset the password it asks for a floppy disk or a usb drive and when i put in the USB hard drive, nothing happens it still tells me to insert a usb hard drive. Please help I have a toshiba satellite with no recovery discs or anything. What can I do? I'm willing to wipe all data in order to get my laptop to work if i can't reset my password

 So I forgot my local admin password, and I need that password to be able to do literally anyting on here (I'm now regretting that decision) I bought the laptop on craigslist previously and it was practically brand new so I dont have the windows 8.1 factory recovery disc, and its way to expensive for me to just go and buy since they are close to if not over $100.00! I have literally tried everything! And I'm starting online school this monday and I have to download Microsoft Office but I cant do that because I dont have my local admin password. Can someone please help me!!!!
