Hi my name is Natasha and I ve locked myself out of my Administrator account on Vista Home Premium 32bit dell inspirion 1525.
The administrator account I usual use for backup but had to change the password due to reasons people have to change there passwords
. I think my problem is I changed the Admin Password through the User Account. I know I am using the right password but it says its incorrect. I believe from what I ve learnt that this is the fault.... that or changing passwords at 3 am is bad idea
. My User account has only basic permissions.
Listed below are the solutions Ive tried.
checked the accounts on my computer throught control panel. there are 4 : 1 admin (locked out)
2 dell admin (cant access) found out under users in control panel( think this is the one i changed years ago.
3 system ( try to access ) with How to gain access to system account the most powerful account in Windows. « Alien Eyes
. didnt work , cmd prompted.
4 user account ( crap access)
from reading help pages and forums tried to access main account under f8 but turns out I changed the basis password for factory account years ago
tried to repair under f8 , tried to restore ,
tried booting up from cds but cant get past admin password , tired f12
At this awhile , wont say how long
and cant afford repair
if anyone one can help it would be much appreciated , even the right link .
