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

and try the suggestions there for the specific make of BIOS that you have on your computer.
