  • help locked out of my laptop!!!

    hi all,
    can someone please help me with this. i am the administrator to this laptop but iv entered the correct password and it is saying that it is wrong, i havn't changed it at all.
    i have windows XP, and for now i am using a different account, but it is very limited and i really need to get to my files as they are important.

    kind regards

          Telling us that you did not see a solution while NOT telling us why you think so isn't helpful. What did you try to fix your situation? Did you try any of the methods described in the said article?
