HI,
BEST THING TO DO IS DOWNLOAD FREEWARE.HOWEVER YOU WILL NEED TO DO THIS FROM ANOTHER PC. TRY PCLOGINNOW OR OPHCRACK.THESE ARE ISO FILES AND ITS EASIER TO BURN THEM TO DISK VIA NERO. I WOULD SUGGETS YOU DOWNLOAD A FREE TRIAL VERSION WHICH LASTS 30 DAYS. REMEMBER ISO FILES ARE NOT THE SAME TO COP AS OTHER FILES SO AT POINT OF COPYING YOU NEED TO SELECT EITHER WRITE IMAGE OR BURN IMAGE. ANY OTHER WILL NOT WORK.. THESE PROGRAMMES WILL WORK IF YOU DOWNLOAD / BURN CORRECTLY AND THE ADMIN PASSWORDS WILL BE REMOVED.
GOOD LUCK FELLA

In this situation i guess only easy solution you have to go for recovery. When you starts your system, keep on pressing F11 key which wil take you to recovery process. It will ask you to backup your files. So you should have something ready with USB port like USB flash drive or USB hard disk where u can backup ur files. Just do recovery and i hope it will be fine after that
Hope it helps
please rate !!

I forgot my password to my Acer Aspire 5315-2492 with Windows Vista. How can I reset it? I do not have a system disk, nor a USB backup.


Take it to an Acer tech for recovery. There are ways to replace the password but probably not legal.

Forgot login password how do i get on my laptop?


As you know, if reinstall the computer will lead to lose data. In order to avoid data loss, you can remove the password with windows 7 password reset tool. I found a good one at http://www.reset-windows-password.com/reset-windows-7-password.html last week, then downloaded it and used it to remove the lost windows 7 password within only few minutes.
