    Thanks everybody for your valuable comments. I know a few softwares that can do that but didn't work on Vista. Was looking for a solution through blogs but that wasn't helpful either. I've finally got the software and have been able to successfully login.

    It is extremely uncalled for anyone to blatently accuse someone else. If you notice, I explained why it's not a good idea to assist. DickCanFixIt, you've been around long enough to know better. Killeronhunt...I'm glad to see that you were able to get back into your pc.

    You can return the stolen laptop to its owner, they know the password.

  • Jerry May 11, 2010

    I'm afraid that most of us are not going to offer you help/solution in figuring out a way to crack/reset the password. The hardware could be stolen (not saying it is) but then we would be aiding in a criminal activity. You could also be wanting to break into your significant others computer, etc, etc...can you see where I'm getting at?

Dickcanfixit: that wasn't very nice of you.

I bought an hp notebook for work and didn't end up going to work with it so a year later i go and boot it so that i can get it ready to go to work finally and i forgot the password and lost the paper i wrote it on. I called hp support and they told me to make sure that when the computer is being booted, to hit the escape button when it tell you and you can reset your whole computer back to reset. Thats what i did. I obviously didn't steal it either since i called hp with the serial number and our info. hope this helps.

How do I unlock I locked myself out of laptop unable to login


Which Password? Bios Password?Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista?Windows 7?OK,if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've gotto have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops withwindows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do whenyou buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling theOperating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator(hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once thedesktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

When you forgot Windows password and couldn't get in laptop, there are still some ways you can try to reset Windows password.

One: Reset Windows password with reset disk
After you type wrong password trying to login into computer, there will be a message prompting you have entered an incorrect password. At the same time, a link "Reset Password" also appears. Click it and insert password reset disk into computer. A password reset wizard will let you reset Windows forgotten password step by step easily.

Two: Reset forgotten password with Windows password removal tool
1. If your laptop is installed with Windows 7, choose Windows 7 password removal tool. If it is installed with Windows 8, select Windows 8 password removal tool.

2. And then install it on another computer that could work. Insert bootable USB drive into this computer and burn password reset disk into USB with password removal tool.

3. Next, it is important to boot your laptop from USB reset disk successfully. When you see password removal program runs in your computer, choose Windows system and user account, and then click "Reset Password".

The difference between above two ways is that how to create password reset disk for Windows password reset. If you have foresight and create it when your laptop is accessible, it will become easy to do reset laptop login password. But even without reset disk and other admin account available, the second way will help you all the time.

Forgot password to hp laptop how do i reset it.


I don't know what OS your HP laptop is installed with.

If it is Windows 8, Windows Password Hint, PIN code, Microsoft account can be used to login HP laptop. After logon successfully, change, recover or reset Windows 8 password is available.

If it is Windows 7, Password hint or another administrator account may help you. But if you don't have all of these, try password reset disk. Create it before Windows 8 locked or with Windows 8 Password Recovery tool is OK.
Besides these, Chntpw USB disk also works for Windows 7/Vista etc.

Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista


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.
