It sounds like there is a problem with the disc itself and that may have come from the download .. If the file you downloaded was corrupted or otherwise it would end up making a bad cd.

I have used the ophcrack many times and it does work

Try downloading it again. And reburn another cd and try.

Setting the BIOS to CD boot first is fine .. You are obviously doing that, but if you are not seeing the prompt after the system successfully reads the boot sector on the CD and asking "Press any key to boot from cd" then you have problem with that CD, unless you have a hardware problem with your cd

It's not all that easy to break a password in Vista. If you have an installation disk, do try a dirty install. Click here if you need help with installation.
Please do let us know the result. Thanx.

If you have forgotten your Windows login password then you can download a copy Hiren's Boot CD which is a CD image file (.ISO) then burn this to a blank CD and boot your computer from this.


On the initial Hiren's boot menu, select the option for:

Offline NT/2000/XP/Vista/7 Password Changer

and then follow the guided prompts shown on the further menu panels.


This tool will allow you to reset your Windows login password to all blanks (i.e. no password).


If you have forgotten a BIOS level password then go to

For your Windows Vista administrator password?
I had also faced the same problem,
I succeed in reseting my Windows Vista password using Windows password Seeker

1.Download Windows Password Recovery from Password Seeker Official site

2.Decompress the Windows password Recovery Tool and note that there is an .ISO image file. Burn the image file onto an blank CD with the burner freely supported by Password Seeker.

3.Insert the newly created CD into the locked computer and re-boot it from the CD drive.

4.After launched the CD, a window pop up with all your account names(if you have several accounts) select one of the accounts that you have forgotten its password to reset it. Just one press, you have Crack windows password.

You can try, Good luck!

Bring the laptop to an experienced IT person to have them crack the administrator password for you or do a non-destructive hack into the system.
