If you found that you can not access your computer for any reason and felt very frustrated, don’t worry, in this article we will introduce 4 methods to let you get into the locked computer without password.
Locked out of computer and don’t know how to log into computer without password? You can simply reset Windows password in Safe Mode. Follow the step by step guide below:
Step 1. Turn on the computer and press the “F8” button. If you are in the boot menu, you have several options to boot Windows. Select the “Safe Mode” option and press Enter.
If for some reason the boot menu does not appear, do as the following: Turn on the computer and cancel the boot process with the reset button as soon as the Windows logo appears. As soon as the computer wants to reboot, switch it off and then on again. This will automatically take you to the boot menu. Select the option: “Safe Mode”.
Step 2. Windows starts in “Safe Mode” now, which is only accessible to the administrator. By default, no password is required for this access and you will enter the system unhindered. Windows looks awful in “Safe Mode”, so do not panic, that’s normal.
Step 3. Press the Start button on the taskbar and select the “Control Panel” menu. There you will find a folder called User Accounts. Open this with a double click. You will now see all configured accounts on this computer. Select the appropriate account and change the password to your liking.
Restart your computer and power up as usual. When your account appears, enter the new password and you just get back into your locked computer now.
If you have a password reset disk created before your computer is locked out, you can also unlock the locked computer with this reset disk. Take Windows 7 as an example:
Step 1. In the logon screen of Windows 7, click on the link “Reset password”. It will appear just below the password box after a failed login attempt.
Step 2. Insert your password reset disk. Click “Next” when the Reset Password Wizard appears.
Step 3. Select the drive where the password reset disk is located. Enter your new password and password hint and then click “Next”.
If successful, you will receive a confirmation window saying: “You have successfully reset the password for this user account”. Now you can get into your locked computer with the new password you just created.
Obviously, the two methods above are not suitable for everyone, if you don’t have a password reset disk or you can’t boot your locked computer in Safe Mode, then it is better to use an centralized Windows password recovery tool to help you get into the locked computer without password. Here we high recommend Windows Password Key (Windows Password Genius) which supports all versions of Windows and no professional skills required.

Step 2. Insert a USB device or CD/DVD to the workable computer. Specify the USB device or CD/DVD and click “Begin Burning” to burn a Windows 7 password reset disk.
Step 3. Inset the newly created password reset disk to your locked computer. Set BIOS to boot computer from USB device or CD/DVD.
Step 4. Now Windows Password Key will run on your locked computer. It will automatically detect all the current account and list to you. Just select the Windows system and user account that you want to reset. Then click the “Reset Password” button.
