    Recovery console on XP

    Hi, I tried getting into RC and when admin password popped up I tried hitting enter but it didn't take. I tried taking a guess on what it might be that didn't take either, how do i get around this please? I appreciate any help.

    If not that then, I have my computer at windows advanced options menu, can I get to bios from there and go into security to reset or change the password, please?


    thanks

    It's whatever Administrator password that was setup when the OS was installed and unbuckled. Not related to the BIOS....it's done on the OS level, not hardware.

    Well the only prob with that is I never entered one and the directions for this situation is to just hit enter when prompted for it and it doesn't except it so now what do I do, please?

    Can you get into windows at all? If you can, you can reset the administrator password through the Microsoft Management Console.
