    If this is a Windows log on password issue, then we have given as much help as we are allowed to.

    With what is posted about using F2 and/ or F8 I am not sure the question was about the password (or the Windows password anyhow). ccccayce - could you please give us some details about where you are trying whatever you are trying that doesnot work? Thanks!

    TRY command prompt about password reset trick
    1. Log in with any valid account.
    2. Bring up the command prompt.
    Type: net user
    You get a list of accounts
    Type: net user Administrator *
    Type: net user (any account on that list) *
    3. It prompts for a password. Enter one, then enter it again when prompted to confirm.
    Now, try to log on as 'Administrator' with your new password. *
    Please note that this might not work on a LIMITED account .

    linky1124, even if you forgot to read the rules on passwords Byteman's post should have been a strong hint that your link was inappropriate. Please review all the forum rules before posting here again.
