I have a Dell Lattitude 1201 laptop with XP Pro, and I have forgotten the administrator password, there is nothing important on it so I decided to reinstall it but get the dreaded blue screen with hardware problems etc.just before starting windows setup.Is there any program to recover the password, I can't make any changes or install hardware or software. Thank's again. Going out for beer back later.

I read that aticle and it is very interesting and may be useful in the future, thank you very much, but the problem is when booting from cd I get the blue screen with white writing stating serious hardware problem etc. I tries another hard drive also blue screen also. Could it be locked in the BIOS. I remember reading in PC Advisor about a program (on the DVD) for recovering the administrator password. Thanks again.
