Oracle 10g XE
I installed Oracle 10g Express edition on my laptop for educational purpose. I lost the administrator password and unable to login through the login page.
Is there a way to reset/receover the password without uninstalling or do I have to reinstall again.
What do you mean you lost the administrator password?
Just in case try this:
set your ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID, then...
conn sys as sysdba
press Enter when asked for the password

Thanks. I was able to login as mentioned below. I am not sure how to proceed further.
Two things I want to rectify:
1. when I installed the default user created was system. How to reset the password for this user. Now when I try to login, it says the account is locked.
2. The URL http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex does not open up the database page. How to rectify it. I have tried with localhost:8080 also in the url.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
If your account is locked,unlock it.

start your database.
command prompt: netstat -an | find "TCP"
check for the ip and port, status.
ping the ip address.
if not, change the port:8080
sql>exec dbms_xdb.setlistenerlocalaccess(true);<-- should be true
try doing these, may work.
