    HELP!!! Possible to reset built-in Administrator Password?


    I've Dell latitude 3330 which is connected to school domain. Before i disconnected from school domain i created user name- Admin but forgot to set it in Administrator. I'm now in Standard User instead of Administrator. But some how Built-in Administrator account is enable but i don't know the password of Built-in Administrator account. Is that possible to reset Built-in Administrator password?

    You can check the status of your Administrator account as follows:

    Open an elevated Command Prompt and type: net user Administrator

    By default, the built-in Admin Account has NO password, unless whoever enabled it created a password.
    If nobody created a password for the Admin Account, then in the sign in screen, all you have to do is to press Enter key and you will be in.
    See if that applies to you.
    If you get in to the built-in Admin account, use it to change you standard user account to administrator account.
