    HELP!

    Windows 2000 usually displays the username and password when i want to log on, and i just click OK and go to the desktop. However, upon turning it on today nothing appears, i press enter and it says to enter a username and password, Cancel is greyed out and there is no 'X' button.

    I can't for the life of me find the username and/or password and have no rememberance as to the username or password in my head (never needed to remember it).

    Is there anyway i can get round it? BIOS changes? password hackers? I really am looking for anything that might work.


    Yours in despiration

    Try administrator for the username.

    Did you try just a blank password. We usually dont give out this type of information because it is considered hacking and is considered to be against forum rules.

    Google search for: offline nt password

    That is all I am going to say.
