If you have the recovery CD boot the laptop from the CD and try recovering it (but ur documents might be lost).
to save documents : download ubuntu (Linux) (its free at ubuntu.com) frm another computer and write it on a CD and boot ubuntu OS in your laptop. then access the files and take a backup. then shut down the laptop and use the wondows recovery CD that came along with ur laptop.

You didn't mention what operating system you are running. I am going to guess you are running a current version of windows.

What you can try is press Control+ALT+Delete two times, and you should get a logon box. WIth any luck you can clear the user name and type in administrator and leave the password blank and try logging in. If you remember setting a administrator password enter it.

If you are able to login you can go to the control panel - users (User accounts in Vista).

If you locate the users section of control panel you can select your account and change password. Or you can create a new account to login with for now.

Hope this helps.

I wanw find my password on windows vista


Are you using Windows vista, there is a separate hidden account called administrator.
The easiest way to access it is to go into safe mode.
You do this by tapping F8 just after the self test, and before windows starts to load.
Once on the start up menu choose safe mode.
Click on the administrator account.
From there you can reset any passwords in the control panel under user accounts.
You do not have to know any of the passwords to change them, or you can use utility to delete the lost password.
Usually 3 steps easy to follow:
1.Download Windows Password Recovery Tool from Official site and decompress it on that PC.there is a .ISO file. Burn the .ISO file to a CD.
2.Get out the newly created CD and insert it to the locked computer.
3.Re-boot the locked computer and then follow the process of
instructions. Just after a few steps, the old password will be removed.
It supports all windows version, recover windows 7 password, vista/xp/2003/2000/NT etc.
