  • I didn't forget the Admin pass

    I'm a teacher and was just given a Dell Laptop XPPro SP2 (no floppy). Was setup at school on the last day and I was a user in a domain called PlantZone. Now I'm off for the summer but going to take several classes In huntsville Alabama Space Camp USA next week. The IT help desk is closed until july when summer school starts.

    I wanted to play Diablo II on a home network with my son. On the desktop I set up a workgroup called workgroup. On the Laptop I went to the Control panel >System>Computername and Changed the settings as follows

    Description: No Changes
    Domain:erased Plantzone and put in Workgroup.

    Now after rebooting I can't login anymore

    I Tried; Last known good config
    Safemode

    I tried the username/password I was given but they don't work anymore... I also tried Admin/Pass, Administrator/Password, Guest/password and got a dialog saying something.

    I went herehttp://www.petri.com/forgot_administrator_password.htm
    and then Here http://www.loginrecovery.com/ I downloaded the the CD.zip file- Extracted- burned the ISO and then I got the following .txt file only.

    Windows XP password Recovery.

    To make this disk work follow the instructions on the website:

    If you can see this file on the CD you have made it correctly. Just insert it into the CD drive of your computer and reboot.

    This site times out not allowing me to get further instructions. I thought the image would have the utilities in it. the funny thing this small text file is 1,640 bytes. Seems a lot for the above few paragraph.

    Well anyway I just would like to get it back the way it was before the Diablo II idea.
    Sorry for the length of this! I'm trying to avoid Pi$$ing of IT.

    What can I do Please! Thanks

    You remove your note book from the domain so, now you must get in with one local account. Your domain account allready gone!
    Do you know the admin local account password?
    You're on a big trouble....

      No I do not know the admin local account password. However the above mentioned CD Rom BootDisc I created does work and I now able to recover the password hash or whatever it's called. I'm worried about sending the password to a third party. http://www.loginrecovery.com

      Thanks

        Do not worry about it.
        You can change your password again.
        What is the problem here?

          How can I change my password now? I,m locked out and won't have access to the domain and the IT admin for 2 weeks. I do have access to a workgroup at home that is not password protected. and I have admin permessions there. Can you elaborate how?

            Now i am lost?!
            You have a workgroup at home? Your notebook belongs to one domain right?! So you have no workgroup in your notebook...
            You forgot the domain password. You need then to ask your admin network to reset that password.
            If you have a local account (for sure you have admin account) in your notebook then just login with that account! (the problem is if you don't know this password as well )

              Thanks windux and all

              I contacted the admin to let him know I screwed up. I then used this tool
              available here
              http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd

              link on this page http://www.petri.com/forgot_administrator_password.htm

              And went ahead and reset the admins password. It worked beautifully. I'm now back in business thanks to all who put in such great effort. I learned a lot. I'll be sure to give credit here because surely my IT guy will want to know about YOU! He will want to add this to his arsenal!!!
