As per your problem first check if there have any Previous Administrator password that you create at the time when you install the OS first time.

Try to log in OS in safe mode. Then remove all password and try to repair your Vista again.

If you aren't able to do the same then format the OS with your Vista CD. If you face any issue with serial key then contact with Microsoft by web or phone. Say them your previous serial key then they will provide you another key. Now you can be able to format your OS.

How to Unlock Windows Vista Password?

I would like to introduce "Windows Login Recovery". 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. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive to recover windows password. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm. You can download it from

I have changed a new password for my administrator account and foget the password, i can only log through the user account. pls help me with steps on how to reset the password and enter new one

Do you need to reset vista or xp users password? Ihas a little trick that dig it for you from tech-hack forums. The method is very easy to follow and doesn't require any complicated commands. The method is free to use and you don't need to pay hundreds of dollars for some utility for unlocking lost windows passwords. Just follow next simple steps:
First thing you need to do is to start command prompt or CMD. There is two ways to do that:
Press F8 when Windows XP start up (before windows xp logo - progress bar for loading) and choose "Save Mode Command prompt" option
If you are logged in: click on start -> Run, type "cmd" and press ENTER.
In command prompt window type command "net user" or "net users". You will see the list of users that are created on current running OS.
Type "net user" "user name" "*". You will see that windows will ask you to enter new password for that particular user account! No super user privileges needed. Just type new password two times and you are done.
Example of process: If the administrator username is "administrator" then command for changing its password will be: "net user administrator *".
Note: quotes (") in the post are just for highlighting the word.
