    Thanks for quick answer, only thing a kind of a problem is with this
    user that his XP is pre-installed on local computer dealer and he has no
    Internet connection in use But this clears this situation especially
    that in this computer dealer has NOT included original Operating System
    CD within Which is OEM version, but the disk I thought that one solution
    could be to start it with a disk and rerun XP installation cause he has
    nothing of a value on that machine, except some letters But if im
    remembering correctly XP needs to be registered via Internet or it for
    some period of times hangs?
    But thats for it now, only instruction i can make to him is to council
    with dealer for this problem
    With thanks

    Hi Mika,

    <But if im remembering correctly XP needs to be registered via Internet or

    XP can also be validated a/k/a Windows Product Activation over the phone.

    Is it XP home or pro? Did he create a user account (the only one) or is he
    using the administrator account? (I.E. When setting up XP, one usually sets
    up an account, then uses that, which hides the admin account). If so, and
    password for admin is either empty or some known password,

    In XPpro, when on login screen, press Ctrl_Alt-Del twice, enter
    administrator and leave password empty (usually when shop has setup
    machine). Go to CtrlPanel, User Accounts and modify his accounts password

    If XPhome, goto SafeMode(any) (when booting machine, start and keep tapping
    F8 when BIOS finishes). This is automatically Admin account. Now
    CtrlPanel->UserAccounts etc...

    Tapahtui eräänlainen ihme Olin saanut käsityksen ettei kuten itse
    kyseinen vanha herra sanoikin ettei ole saanut mitään levyjä koneensa
    mukana, mutta kuinkas ollakkaan lpöytälaatikon lukitusta laatikosta
    löytyi koko setti Kone oli ollut ammattimiehellä viikon verran ja saanut
    sen jotakuinkin pystyyn Vanha herra asiakkaana ei kuitenkaan salasana
    sekoilujensa suhteen pystynyt konetta käyttämään eikä
    ammattimieheltäkään ollut tullut mitään lappua mukaan jossa esimerkiksi
    ADmin salasana olisi ollut mukana
    Itsekin kämmäsin ajattelemattomuuttani Avaruusajan TRUST näppäimistöstä
    (on se toiminut yhdelläkin) oli USB johto irti PS/2 siinä tietysti oli
    paikallaan?? #¤%#(:= Joten asensin koko XP:n uudestaan ja löysin
    äänipuolen ajurit Compaqin sivuilta, niitä kun ei muualta löytynyt
    No, nyt tämän lauantain kuluttua iltaa kohden kone vihdoin toimii,
    minkäänasteisia salasanoja/käyttäjä tilejä en sille asentanut
    Ainut ongelma on että (toivoakseni) vanha herra on nimittäin netitön
    johon XP iloisesti kilautti ruutuun että tämä tuote toimii
    aktivoivattomana seuraavat 30 vrk??? Kännykällähän tietysti toimii sen
    aktivointikin
    Melko hurjia uskomuksia tuli muutenkin ilmoille "haamuyhteydestä"
    verkkoon, siis tietosellaiseen jonka päätöpselin virkaa hoitaa valtion
    verkko eli herra pistoke & tyttö töpseli
    Vahinko että kiskaisin sen eurokossun jo keskiviikkona, tänään sille
    olisi näemmä ollut tilauksensa

    I am a novice computer user and I have also forgotten the password to the
    Admin accoung. I am wondering if I use the 'Safe Mode' to access the Admin
    account, will I still have to put in my password to change to a new password?
    Also, will lose access to any documents that are in My Documents as I have
    set up so that others using the computer cannot look at my files.

    Hi,

    Regardless of what mode you use, the password is the same. If you have
    access to another account with admin-level privileges, then you can reset
    the admin password. Otherwise, scroll about halfway down this page:
