Forgotten the Login Password

By long.shi.ho ·
Hi All,

I installed Windows 2000 Pro a month ago, and i set the startup login with defaulted user name and password, meaning to say i don't have to keep providing my user name and password when i boot/reboot my computer. But now, i need to provide password to enter to my desktop when i boot my computer. So, why the system require me to key in password? (I didn't do anything for the setting) and the worse is that i forgot the password. Hence, i can't login to my system.
Is there anyway to solve this problem or get back my password? Please help, if anyone of you know how to solve this problem, coz i really don't want to reinstall my system.
Further, i have an Internal Motorola modem, but when i booth my win2k, the system unable to detect my modem..why?
thanks..

Hopefully you have not used the Administrator login for the defaulted username.

When the login screen comes up, type in

administrator

Leave the password blank!

This is the standard Administrator login for W2K Pro.

Go into Control Panel and Administrative Tools and Computer Managment.

Then open the folder Local Users and Groups.

Click on the Users folder.

Right Click on the default username you setup.

Change the password.

Now you will know what the password is to login with.
