Is there a way to bypass a WIndows login?
My friend who works at a Motorola campus here in Il recently gave me a laptop from the company as they were giving many away asking employees if they wanted to keep a few before scraping them altogether(they were upgrading their hardware). The one my friend kept wasn't his workstation, he had the password and gave it to me since I'd been buggin about a laptop. However, being the dumbass/burnout I am, I lost it/misplaced it, prolly folded it up & broke up some chronic on it and tosssed it afterwards, I don't know, but this laptop he gave me has a Windows XP log on that I obviously don't know the password to.
So how can I get passed this?

BTW, ...this other forum I posted the same question at had locked the topic saying I was asking for illegal hacks/crackware etc. They prolly took it like that cause of how i titled it "how to crack Windows logon?" I was thinking about reinstalling windows, but the only copy(if u can call it that) of Windows XP I have on CD is on the 3 disc System Recovery cds, but the disc are only for my desktop Sony VAIO.
So if what I am asking for in effect is something illegal, then nevermind (or PM the info ).

The software you are asking for are simply tools. Its how and why you use them that determines if your doing something illegal or not. Anyway, with the sermon out the way...
You can use this tool to reset the bios password.
CmosPwd - CGSecurity
You can use this tool to reset the local administrator password.
Offline NT Password & Registry Editor
You can use this tool to crack any local/cached account passwords.

Well I certainly hope it's not considered illegal, as I would like to think I obtained the laptop in an honest way.
In any event, Thanks a bunch for the info!!!

That's the one I decided to go with since it's the most suggested tool, only thing is I can't see the ISO file. Might I be doing something wrong? I'm extracting using WinRAR, if that may help.

Scroll down to the 'Download' section on that page, it's past the version history bit. Failing that (and for those having trouble with filters) I've attached the zip here.

ophcrack is great. Boot from the CD and have all passwords in minutes.
couldnt get it to work on a RAID system though where it found multiple partitions

I've tried Oph, ERD and number of other boot bypassers, but all of em get hung up on the blackscreen after choosing boot from CD.

So I have no Admin login option to click, but I do erase the default user name and type in Administrator and leave password blank, but it says the password doesn't match. Normally there really wouldnt be a password right, but I'm guessing Motorola or whoever put a pass on Admin, and that haults me from doing the Safe Mode bypass.
I figured I got the hook up with a old(IBM Thinkpad) but free laptop and use it to my advantage. Oh well. The idea of having a legit(so to speak) free laptop was nice, but maybe this is to much trouble to go through. Holla back if you can.

To make your locked machine prompt you with a logon box you simply need to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete twice when you are presented with the user switcher screen (the first of the two pics in your post). Once you have done this you should be able to enter administrator as the username and try a blank password.
The fact that the administrator account is not listed on the choose user screen is normal behavior as it is hidden by default on that screen unless there are no other user accounts.
As to reseting it I would also recommend the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor which is also included in the UBCD that should allow you to boot from it.

i think you might of tried this already but just incase you aint...
if the pc is on a network - on the second pic when you typed in administrator & left the password blank, try change "log on to" to the local computer and not the network - if it is attached to one.
you probs already did but just incase

OR... just re-install XP??
At least it's a clean start then!

- Put it in safe mode
- when you get to the picture log-in
- press Ctrl+Alt+Delete (press delete key twice)
- That will bring up the classic login box
- Type in Administrator
- Password is blanc
Dunno just another idea that came into my head

If you use Offline NT to reset the admin password put a star in to represent a blank space and should have no problems. Has problems if you actually put in a new password.
