Master reset

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows XP
I have this old CPU and monitor and do not remember the password. I’m just sitting here on the main screen to log in, spamming random passwords in hopes to guess one. It doesn’t matter if I reset it to the default settings, I just want to be able to log on and use it. Any help will be much appreciated.

Hi @SamShamblin ,

 

Thank you for posting on HP Forums,

The Barachiel is at your service.

 

I understand you are in need of support,

I'll be glad to help you out, however, for an accurate solution I will need more details:

 

Have you attempted any steps on your own before posting on the HP Forums?

When was the last time it worked without these issues? 

 

In the meantime, please try the steps mentioned below:

 

If it's the windows log-in password, then the only way to get it back is to perform a complete recovery. 🙂

 

Please reply with the details for further assistance.

Eager to help!
