@Dsimmonssr1

Thank you for joining HP Forums. 

I'll be glad to help you 🙂 

 

As I understand you need to sign into your windows XP user account as the password isn't within your memories banks at the moment 😉

No worries, as I'll be glad to help you, that said, I'll need a few more details to dissect your concern & provide an accurate solution: 

Did you know WinXP isn't supported by Microsoft anymore as it's obsolete?

(The reason I'm asking is because as an HP employee I can only provide you with the basic support out of courtesy)

That said, Have you checked any related HP Forum posts to resolve your concern?

 

If you haven't, Here's a related HP Forums post that seems to have helped others: Click here for the steps. 

 

If I have helped you resolve the issue, feel free to give me a virtual high-five by clicking the 'Thumbs Up' icon below,  

Followed by clicking on "Accept as solution" from the drop-down menu on the upper right corner, 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum.  Have a great day!

@Dsimmonssr1

Thank you for replying with this overwhelming and detailed response 😉 

I appreciate your time and efforts,

 

I believe you had mentioned WinXP on your first post,

nevertheless, If it's the win10, you'll need to reply with whether it's a local administrator account or an online Microsoft account.
