It's not clear which type of Windows you use.

In case your laptop is requiring a username / pwd-combination, immediatelly after powering up, it's a BIOS-issue. This means, you didn't even see a Windows-message / logo. To solve this, you should have some hardware-skills, because you need to open up your laptop and fiddle with some interior hardware.

If it is the login-procedure of Windows itself, all types of Windows have the option to boot up in "safe mode" by touching the F5-function key at your keyboard, while booting. You get several options to choose from.
At least you can boot up Windows and make a safe back-up an external USB harddisk or USB-drive. After this, you might consider downloading software which is able to create an additional account, or try to do it yourself.
Besides, the manufacturer of your laptop, should have included a CD / DVD for re-installing Windows. It might be even hidden somewhere at your harddisk, and visible after the F5-function-key.

Nevertheless, I want to emphasize, your first priority should always be to create an external back-up. After this, you can go for the other suggested steps.

Lost Windows 7 Password, How to Get in Your Password Protected PC in Safe Mode?


Lost Windows 7 password, what will you do to get in your password protected computer? In fact, there are lots of ways for you to regain access to the locked computer? In addition to use a password reset disk to reset Windows 7 password, you can still log on your PC in safe mode to change the lost Windows 7 password. It is very simple. Just three steps. You could follow the below guide.

Step 1: Enter safe mode in Windows 7 operating system

1. Start or restart your Windows 7 machine.

2. Press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options just before the Windows 7 loading screen appears.

3. Use arrows to choose Safe Mode when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

4. Press Enter and wait for Windows 7 files to load.

5. Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen.

Step 2: Change lost Windows 7 password

Now you are logged into Windows 7 in safe mode. You diagnose and solve some serious problems under it, especially when starting Windows normally is impossible. To reset Windows 7 password, just do as follows:

1. Click Start button and input lusrmgr.msc into the Search box.

2. In the coming Local Users and Groups screen, double-click Local Users and Groups, and then click Users.

3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click Set Password.

4. Type and confirm the new password.

Note: you can also go to Local Users and Groups screen by right-clicking Computer to select Manage on desktop.

Step 3: Log on your computer with the new password

You have successfully perform Windows 7 password reset. Now you can easily access to your compute with the new password. Please note that you must log on with an account that has administrator permissions.

More information:

When you are presented with Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 variations of Windows 7 Safe Mode.

Safe Mode - This is the default option and is usually the best choice. This mode will load only the absolute minimum processes necessary to start Windows 7.

Safe Mode with Networking - This option loads the same processes as Safe Mode but also includes those that allow the networking functions in Windows 7 to work. You should choose this option if you think you may need to access the Internet or your local network while troubleshooting in Safe Mode.

Safe Mode with Command Prompt - This version of Safe Mode also loads a minimum set of processes but will allow immediate access to the Command Prompt. This is a valuable option if more advanced troubleshooting is necessary.

Actually, the 3 options are available for you. I only take Safe Mode as an example. But if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to change the lost Windows 7 password.

If you cannot log on Windows with an account that has administrator permissions, you will be not able to enter Windows safe mode. In that case, I'm afraid you'll need third party software Windows Login Recovery to help to bypass your lost Windows 7 password and get back in your protected computer. Windows Login Recovery allows you to reset lost Windows password with a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. It takes you take less than 5 minutes.

I have forgotten the password that i used when opening my account. please assist. thank you phill rogers


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 I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.
