Try downloading LC4 from the www.techtv.com website. It will get you all of the passwords on your PC back.

Judging by your spelling,, maybe you are putting in Typo's?



Next time ,, do this,,

create password reset disks

Create Password Reset Disks
The Forgotten Password Wizard allows you to create a password reset disk that can be used to recover user account and personalized computer settings if the password is forgotten. The steps to perform this task differ for domain and workgroup scenarios.

Domain Password Reset Disk

Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to open the Windows Security dialog box.
Click Change Password.
Click Backup to open the Forgotten Password Wizard.
Click Next and then follow the instructions as they appear on the screen.

Non-Domain Password Reset Disks

The procedure for creating non-domain reset disks varies depending on whether you have an administrator account or a limited account.

Administrator Password Reset Disk

[Start] [Control Panel] [User Accounts]
Select the account name.
Click [Prevent A Forgotten Password] under Related Tasks on left of screen.
Follow the instructions in Forgotten Password Wizard.

Limited Account Password Reset Disk

[Start] [Control Panel] [User Accounts]
Click [Prevent A Forgotten Password] under Realted Tasks on left of screen.
Follow the instructions in Forgotten Password Wizard.



Using the Password Reset Disk to Log On to A Computer

Click the user name whose password is on the recovery disk
Press [Enter] or the [Right Arrow] button.
This causes the [Did You Forget Your Password] message shown below to appear.

Did you forget your password?
You can click the "?" button to see your password hint.
Or you can use your password reset disk.

Please type your password again.
Be sure to use the correct uppercase and lowercase letters.

Click [Use Your Password Reset Disk].
This will start the Password Reset Wizard.
Follow the wizard's instructions and you will be able to set a new password.
The password reset disk is automatically updated with the new password information. You do not have to create a new password reset disk

The password reset disk that you create can only be used with the computer on which it was created.

For additional information see the Knowledge Base articles listed below.
Create and Use a Password Reset Disk for a Computer in a Domain (Q306214)
Create and Use a Password Reset Disk for a Computer That Is Not a Domain Member (Q305478)

is there a file it stores passwords in? if so youmight be able to open it in another computer by temporarily moving the hard drive over, or using another OS

Sounds like it is BIOS protected. If it is a suervisor password on a newer machine its not a good thing. First thing I would try is removing the CMOS battery so it can flush the settings. Leave it out for about 30 min. I had to do this for my cousin who did the samething and this erased that BIOS password. I assume this since you arent able to get into the OS? Or can you at least get to the Windows logon screen?? If so there are plenty of tools that you can use to boot from a floppy disk to retrieve passwords.

On the screensavers (Techtv.com) Kevin Rose has a dark tip for just such an occasion. Knoppix-std has a tool to crack it. But then again, XP has a system recovery utility. You can recover all passwords for there. It can be downloaded from MS or even from the XP CD.

Download this zip file and extract it to a formatted floppy disk. Then boot from the floppy and use the tool to reset the paswords to the partition of your choice.
