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

Forgot mypassword


If you cannot log on to Windows by using a particular user account, but you can log on to another account that has administrative credentials, follow these steps on how to do the trick:
  1. Log on to Windows by using an administrator account that has a password that you remember. You may need to start WinXP in safe mode.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type “control userpasswords2′, and then click OK.
  4. Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
  5. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.

Is it the windows password? Or did he set the bios password for booting up? If it is just the logon for windows, then the F2 setup won't be able to touch it. You can go here to fix the windows password:
