If you have another Administrator id, log in to it and remove the password for the protected account. Restart your PC and go into safe mode. You might find an administrator account without a password.
If such an administrator accout does not exist. Go to ophcrack.com and download a live OPHcrack disc for Vista. Insert the disc and reboot your PC. The disc will take you into a mini Linux where a program will automatically run and will reveal your password.
Warning, this measure is to test password strenght, not for illegal purposes

Forgot adminitrator accounts password CANT USE COMPUTER


If your notebook's OS is Windows XP, Vista or 7 you can use
ophcrack. Ophcrack is a Windows password cracker based on a time-memory trade-off using rainbow tables. This is a new variant of Hellman's original trade-off, with better performance. It recovers 99.9% of alphanumeric passwords in seconds.

You download an ISO file. You can use this file to burn a CD or DVD and boot that way or you can use a program like UnetBootin or YUMI to setup a flash drive to boot your notebook.

I HAVE FORGOT MY PASSWORD SO I CANT USE MY LAPTOP


If you can tell me what the Os do you use, it could be must better.
On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

Latitude D430 PC Notebook: i forgot my login password and i cant get into my ...


You have to reset the PC and while booting press F8 until the OS menu shows up, choose start safe mode. When you reach the Login part you will be able to login as an administrator, while you are logged in as Admin change your user password.
Word of advice, change to Windows XP or Windows 7 because Vista is the worst OS I saw. Cheers

Forgot password on acer aspire 3680 windows vista basic


I've never had an acer ... but if you forgot the windows password, you're frozen. you need to run the computer in safe mode, some computers then don't requier a password. and in safe mode you can also access it via administator account, often without password, if with, someone has it, probably the person that installed the os for you. the administrator account let's you play with the passwords a lot more that your own account does.
to run in safe mode, you need restart and watch for any messages on black screen like "press F1 for bios", gist watch for something about selecting the startup mode and press the button listed. if you have quiet boot - a picture instead of most of the black screens and writings, pres escape during it to remove it. you should have the key instructions somewhere.
everything goes pretty quickly, so you might need to repeat things a bit to gett everything done fast enough.
when in safe mode, reset the vista password like usually - by the accounts manager or whatever vista has (I'm sticking to XP).

Acer Aspire Password for 5315-2077


If you are running Vista, You can System restore from your recovery disk or from the recovery options stored on your hard drive at start up. Restore far enough back as to ensure it was before you applied a password. Hopefully you'll get away without having to wipe an reconfig the OS.

Password


Before I can accurately answer this, I have a couple of questions, namely:

- Which password is forgotten? (BIOS, OS, etc.)

- If it's the OS, which version are you running? (Windos XP, Windows XP SP2, Windows, Vista, etc.)

- If it's the BIOS, what is the Brand & Model # of your machine?

Thanks in advance!
