I have an old laptop (Its a windows 2000 professional laptop) that i want to get running again.. My problem is... I don't know the password..

  • I do not have install discs.
  • I can not get into system.
  • I have a dell 600 Ghost disc (don't know what to do with it).
  • I dont want to pay to get it unlocked.
  • I don't want to have to buy a new laptop..

Please help, this laptop has been sitting here for a little bit and i think it would be easier to work at my desk with another computer at access.

Thanks a ton

press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice at logon screen and type administrator into the user and leave the password blank, from here you can change the password to your other account.

There is something called ophcrack that will recover all passwords from that computer.

you should always have a boot cd delivered by the company at any cost! you should contact the company before you damage content of bios that will get you to pay full price

Get trinity rescue kit, you'll have to use another computer to get it, but it's free to download, it is compatible with windows and you can get on to an admins account without a password.
