Forgot my admin password

I bought a laptop about a year and a half ago loaded with Windows Vista. I haven't used it in about 9 months and forgot the password. I am the only one who has used this laptop. What can I do?

Hi smt35216,

Regarding the issue with your password, one possible option to resolve it is using the system restore using the windows vista cd or using the boot advance option.

When you turn on the system, after you pressed the power button to turned it on just keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard (depending on the system model) until you see an option to boot to "repair my computer". Follow the instructions. When you are in the Recovery option, select system restore and restore the settings back to the working date.

If system restore won't work. Last resort is to reinstall your Windows Vista. You may also ask you computer manufacturer if they have a recovery partition of your hard drive to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Regards,

Jeff

I want to hack win xp admin password by guest their is error "access is denied" i hv try safe mode its no working


While you forgot windows os password, you can enter safe mode (F8 when booting up) to recover windows password while you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin passwords, there's no way to change it, you should use utility to recover admin password. Last week, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to remove the Windows password successfully. It's worth an attempt.

Forgot my windows 7 login password cant seem to get it open how can i unlock it?


http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/It loads a small linux distro and lets you reset the password of any user to blank, change the password of any user and other useful things.

Tried in XP, VISTA and Windows 7 (all builds) , works fine.
It's a handy , fast tool which I always have with me, booting from my USB stick.
Plus, its free.

Cheers

Forgot password


If you did not create a password reset disk you need a technician to do this for you. If there is another user on the computer you can remove the password from the control panel using there account.
