Of course, you can always reset a password if you have another admin account for this machine. However, if this isn’t the case, things can get a bit tricky. As a sys admin you are usually confronted with this problem if users have laptops where you don’t have an admin account. Even if you don’t have to reset a password now, you should get acquainted with this issue. Rest assured that sooner or later a user will bug you with this problem. I must admit that I managed to forget my own password more than once.
Option 1: Create a password reset disk
Vista allows you to create a password reset disk which enables you to reset your password without much hassle. The problem with this option is that you have to create the reset disk before the password is lost. If you have many Windows machines where users logon locally, this might be a daunting task. You can find a description of how to create a password reset disk here.
Option 2: Get Petter Nordhal-Hagen’s NT Password & Registry Editor
With this option you have to boot from a CD and then manipulate the SAM database. Manipulating the SAM database is always a bit risky. But if you have no password reset disk, this is the only way. Note that this tool comes without any warranty. I’ve been using it quite a few times on Windows 2000 and had never any problem with it, though. The latest version also supports Windows Vista. The download link of the tool is a bit hidden. Search for “download” on this page, if you can’t find it.

Option 3: Get the commercial Password Changer
Password Changer essentially works like the NT Password & Registy Editor. An advantage of this tool is that you’ll get support if any problem arises. Based on Joseph Fiber’s description of the tool it might be a bit easier to use than Petter Nordhal-Hagen’s solution. This especially applies if you are not familiar with Linux. Prices start at $39.99.
Update (10/29/08):
Option 4: Use Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset
MSDaRT is a toolset from Microsoft that allows you to repair a Windows installation. With its Locksmith tool you can reset an admin password easily. Please check out my review about MSDaRT for more information.

Download "ERD commander", below is the link

Rapidshare Link

Megaupload Link

Easy-Share Link

You can use any of the above link. Extract the file using Winrar and burn the ISO images in a CD.

Boot your system using that CD (Set the first boot device as CD-DVD Rom in your BIOS).

You can easily set a new password using the tools called "Lock Smith"

That's it.

What can i do to speed up my laptop


You also forgot tell us what the OS do you use.

Reset windows password, Vista and Windows 7 allow you to create a password reset disk.If you installed Windows XP, boot up Windows XP in Safe Mode and log on with the built-in administrator account.

Besides,using Windows Password Reset is a good method.

Forgot password admin


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

If it is Windows admin password the one you forgot, and you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. Also try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank, otherwise try one of the following:

- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use third party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your login password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download.html

Forgot password for bios Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 PC Notebook L300d


Hi Arthur Clarke,

Did you set the BIOS password for your notebook or was it set automatically by the computer? Anyway, to solve this problem, you may need to bring out your system to a near Toshiba ASP.

If you need further assistance or information regarding your problem, call Toshiba Tech Support (800-457-7777). Hope this helps.

About installation of xp on toshiba l310


I believe the manufacturer does not support nor recommend the downgrade from Vista to Xp since the necessary drivers may no longer be available at pcsupport.toshiba.com. To be sure about this, especially if your laptop is in warranty, please contact the manufacturer. Hope this helps. Thank you.
