    But my computer does not know the start button. When I try to enter my password, the computer says the password is incorrect and to press reset password. When I do this, I get an error code that says "No drive, the feature requires removable media, such as a floppy disk or USB flash drive. Please insert a floppy disk or USB flash drive. When I put in the flash drive, the computer goes to the Password Wizard and says I need a password reset disk. I called MicroSoft and they said since the Windows Vista came already installed on the computer, Acer would have to send me the password reset disk. I have called and called Acer with no assistance. No one picks up the phone. Can you please help me?

Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.

If you've forgotten your Windows password and you're on a domain, you should contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you're not on a domain, you can reset your password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.
If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.

    If you forget your computer password,
    you can use a password reset disk to create a new one. We recommend
    that you create a password reset disk when you create your password, so
    you don't lose access to your files and information.




    NoteA password reset disk can only be created for local user accounts. If your computer is on a domain, a network administrator can reset your domain logon password.To complete these steps, you'll need removable media such as a USB flash drive or floppy disk.















    1.

    Open User Accounts by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking User Accounts and Family Safety, and then clicking User Accounts.


    2.

    In the left pane, click Create a password reset disk, and then follow the instructions. Make sure you store the password reset disk in a safe place.

Windows XP Tip: Password Recovery Disk


Here's how to launch the Forgotten Password Wizard to create your very own password recovery disk.

  1. Click Start menu, Control Panel, and User Accounts.
  2. Click your user account name.
  3. Under Related Tasks on the left, click "Prevent forgotten password" to launch the wizard.


Now that you've launched the wizard, let it walk you through creating the recovery disk. Make sure the disk you use is formatted and in the drive. After it's finished creating the disk, label it and stash it away for an emergency.

If you happen to forget your password, all you need to do is click your user icon at the logon screen. Even though you don't have your password, go ahead and click the green arrow just like you would to finish logging on to your computer. This will launch a little yellow dialog box directing you to use your password recovery disk.

Don't lose the disk, however, or you're out of luck.
