Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by derrickman46 on Dec 21, 2008
Started hp computer with vista one morning when it asked me for the password and when I couldn't give it the right one, it asked for the answer of the security password which was my mother's maiden name and it refused it also.Is there a way to be able to get to the password area to either, to change the password or disable it so that I can get back to my computer again..I talked to some local tech',s but they were unable to help me on vista.I was told that they could help me with XP but not Vista..I am on my wife's computer now.Thanks in advance to my computer's hiccup. Terry Comment posted on Dec 23, 2008 I never was able to get the decryted passwords,when I went to the result page it said that it was 100% recovered but nothing came up in the box in the last one to the right..The only thing there was, the word blank in each of the boxes where the passwords should have been. You could not click on them or any other place
You can make a password reset disk through a third party tool . I will show you how to create a disk after you had lost the password.
You need to login any available computer and download Windows Password Key from http://download.cnet.com/Windows-Password-Key/3000-2092_4-11166455.html and install in that PC.Burn to a blank CD or USB and then use this to reset your locked PC.
You can find the guidance how to make a password reset disk after you have lost password from here.
Hope that help

I) in window's xp you have an option of recovering forgotten or lost password, but in the case of vista it is not possible to bring back therecover password.
ii) so instead messing with password recovery softwares, try reinstall or reaload OS or format ur system or reload OS Freshly....
i) Attach your HDD(Hard disk drive) to different Computer and browse through your disk(ur C Drive or Hard disk)then do the following task:
Rename your SAM File located in \windows\system32\config\SAM to SAM1
Copy SAM from \windows\repair\SAM and paste it in \windows\system32\config\SAM
Attach back again to your computer and it will work with blank administrator password. means logging in to admin account without password...
