About a year ago I and my sister changed passwords on the administrator account and the qwertyuiop and zxcvbnm keys didn’t work, so we used an on screen keyboard. We confirmed the password had been changed successfully, but now we can’t remember the password what it had changed to. And now we have a keyboard that works well. We can’t access any other profiles on the computer and we can’t install any programs after logging in the computer in guest.
I have windows XP home edition. I really need to get into my pc because I need to update stuff and install stuff and I don’t have enough money to buy a new one yet but it is very urgent. Is there any way I can get back in my computer by removing or resetting the computer password.
Since it is a Windows XP machine, the first thing you can try is to press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice after starting your PC to the logon screen. A classic logon box will appear, where you can type administrator in the username box, and leave the password box blank. You’ll be able to enter your computer again after pressing Enter if the built-in administrator is not password-protected. With the default administrator, you can reset a lost Windows password through local users and groups.
If this method doesn’t work, the only option left is to use the third-party software, like Rekeysoft Windows Password Recovery, to reset your lost Windows XP password to blank. With this easy yet powerful Windows password recovery tool, you can easily create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB flash drive in any computer.
