Lenovo laptop - Lost admin password

May 2017


Issue


I have Lenovo laptop running Window XP and I've lost my administrator password!

Solution


Lenovo Windows XP Password Removal
There is a built-in administrator account with null password under XP, and then we can opt for the special account to remove/recover the one with a lost Lenovo password on XP from Safe Mode.
  • Power on Lenovo laptop and press F8. Choose "Safe Mode" and press "Enter" key at the Advanced Boot Option windows.
  • On the login windows, select the Administrator account and keep the Password column blank (or input the changed password if the default Administrator account password has been reset).
  • Click "Start" - "Control Panel" - "User Accounts" - Pick the account needed to reset password - "Change the password".
  • Input a new password and confirm it to complete Lenovo XP password reset.
