Hi

If you have forgotten your password to log on to windows then you will not be able to log on to your profile as this needs your windows password.

If you have a sepreate administration account on the laptop you can log on with this make another user account to log on, log on with this account to create your new profile then log off, back on as admin, you should then have access to the users folder and with admin rights you should have access to copy your stuff from the old user profile to the new one.

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile


This article describes how to copy user data from your Windows XP profile to a new profile.
When you copy user data into a new profile, the new profile becomes a near duplicate of the old profile, and contains the same preferences, appearance, and documents as the old profile. If your old profile is corrupted in some way, you can move the files and settings from the corrupt profile to a new profile.
Note The method that is described in this article may not transfer the Outlook Express e-mail messages and address user data that are associated with the user profile where you are transferring data from. When you delete the old profile, you may delete that data if it you do not first transfer it by using other methods. For more information about transferring Outlook Express user data, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Is it possible to get password recovery?


Well if we are talking about the pasword for windows, no one has successful got that as yet..

Usually you can use the recovery CD and create a password recovery but that is at the beginning before you are locked out, if you get locked out unfortunately i am still to yet hear of a way to get the password for windows...

usually it ends up being a recovery of the OS... if using XP there is a way that you can get the password, but anything later will not work. unfortunately...

IF XP:

Boot into Safemode
then log into Administrator
Got to Control Panel
then to User Accounts
then Select the Account
and then Change/Create password
save and exit
reboot and use the new password to log in...

When I try to log in to my account on Windows XP, it immediately and automatically logs me back out.


Boot into safe mode and log in as "administrator", then if this works, create a new
user profile on your PC. Now, boot back into normal mode and log in with the new
user profile. If this works, then you simply have a corrupt user profile. You can
access all your old documents and data under C:\Documents and settings\(old user
profile) if you absolutely need it.

Also, make sure your hard drive is not full.
