  • Admin Password Forgot (Tryed Everything on this site and many others)

    Hi

    First of all i would like to say sorry for this topic once again (People must be sick of this)

    Basicly, I have a pc from my Dads work (no it isnt stolen) and Im locked out of all accounts except one, which is the guest account and i have tryed every possible solution to get back into the Account, i have tryed reboot the whole pc but the CD-Drive isnt set for to be its 1st option. So then i tryed many solutions to make it the 1st Driver but ... It failed. So then i tryed to use the same ideas/program but putting the image file on a floppy..it failed.

    EDIT : I HAVE TRYED EVERY SOLUTION BUT THEY ALL RELY ON REBOOT,WHICH THE PC ISNT SET UP TO DO ??

    Ive tryed everything to Get access to the Admin acount/wipe the pc clean.

    Does anyone have a sollution to Wipe Clean,Reboot or Gain Access to The Admin Account ??

    Thanks in Advance

    Luke

    p.s [if possible email me the solution to [email protected] ]

          You need to configure your computer's BIOS to boot from a CD/DVD. Can you do that? If not, why not?

              You need to get into your BIOS. This is usually done by pressing DEL of F2 or another key (depending on your computer manufacturer) right after the computer starts.

                Can you provide the maKe and model? (Please do not put "IBM X86 Family 6 Model 8 Steeping 3" as that is the processor info.)

                If it is a laptop the model number should be underneath the device. The make could be Dell, Compaq, IBM, HP etc, etc.

                    Probably not. I was trying to find the model number so as to determine if the thing would boot from a CD. This link will help you getting into the PC's BIOS so you can change the boot order.

                    It may be F1 (as per the link). As soon as you power the PC start pressing the F1 (or appropriate key). You will then need to look through the settings to find the boot order and set it so the CD boots first. Once that is done you can try the various suggestions that are listed in the stickey at the top of this forum.

                    Post back with questions.

                        Well i got to my Setup Config..by pressing "F1"

                        When i get on there, there is no options which it makes it possible to make my Drive the 1st choice for boot

                        The Options are :-

                        System Summary
                        Product Data
                        Devices and I/O Ports
                        Start Option
                        Date and Time
                        System Security
                        Advanced Setup
                        ISA Legacy Resoures
                        Power Managment

                        (Ive searched throught all of them but there nothing that would seem the right thing to do to me...but then again im not very good with pc's)

                        So what would you recoment i change

                        Cheers for everything

                            START OPTION seems a good place to begin?

                            As said, get an expert, or go to the IBM site and see if you can locate it by serial number

                              Could you please use the forums rather than emailing! That way everyone can share in your question and any answers.

                              Hi

                              I Posted a thread on www.petri.com about reseting/deleting the administrator password...and well ive descorved my pc resets from floppy disc so i was just wondering if you knew of any pc reboot programs that use a floppy disc.

                              Thankyou in advance
                              I think you want a password reset program on floppy disk?

                              Did you use ? http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...t+floppy&meta= The first link is to one of Daniel's pages about a PASSWORD RESET FLOPPY. There are over a million other links

                              Personally I would follow Dumber's advice: get a professional to sort it out. If there is any valuable data on the laptop they will recover it first. If there is no valuable data, why not reinstall XP and start from scratch.

                              I notice you have still not given us any information about the model. We know it is an IBM but there must be some badges on the front or stickers on the back that give more information about the model.
