Well you can reset your password but that will depend whether your Administrator (Windows) root (Linux) user's account are password protected or not. If they are not password protcted then log in to your system with administrator or root and then reset your password but if that also is password protected and you have forgotten that password also then there is no option in windows other than reinstalling. ya but you can do it in Linux without reinstalling.

YES! and even if you can't recover the password you don't need to!

You can use a CD called System resuce CD thats free and if you press F2 while booting this CD you will be given the option to recover any Windows Passwords. If you have a password protected Hard Drive that will not fix it. You will need to take the hard drive out of the laptop and extract the data using a Linux PC. You can get a free version of Linux from
When logging in as root you won't have to worry about passwords for retrieving data. just use the password "root". You can access all the data on any device.
