Easiest solution is to reinstall Vista.

You may be able to do this without losing your data (Do a Rpair rather than an Install) but I suspect that this will not remove the password.

I have not done what I am about to describe with Vista so I am not sure if this is even an option, but you may be asked to create User Accounts when repairing Vista (same as when doing an Install) - if this is the case you could create a new account and give it Administrator rights. When you restart the computer - enter as the Administrator and change the Attributes of the original account (remove the password). As I said, I don't know if this is an option with Vista.

Note: I have just uninstalled Vista for the second time (reverting back to XP), I may give Vista a go again when SP2 or SP3 comes out and then again I may not. So my knowledge and ability to experiment with Vista is now non limited or non existant.

Good luck.

How do you reboot your vista home basic computer becasue i forgot my admin password


To reinstall put the installation disc into the computer and restart. Tap f12 while the bios is loading and select boot from disc. This will allow you to reinstall. Otherwise go to http://www.password-changer.com/ and make a bootable disc. This disc will allow you to clear the password from your machine.
If you have more questions feel free to ask me.

Forgot my windows vista login password


Try to login to safe mode with administrator login and change the password for your user account.

There is no way to bypass user security otherwise in Windows Vista.

Copy windows vista from my laptop to my acer pc


you can not just copy vista. you would need to get an install cd of vista and install it onto the pc. this still may not fix your internet problem as there is no guarantee that vista will even have the drivers for your pc components.

Vista login password or bios password before windows has started?

try pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL two times
you should get a difrent login screen,
Try to login with Administrator
there shouldnt be password there unless you have set one.
ones you are loged in you can change the user password by

holding down the windows key and pressing r
then typeing

net user username *

example

net user ekse *

it will ask you to enter a new password for the user.

You can probably alter the recovery option from within the bios - certain changes within the bios can harm your software installation use caution. Enter bios on boot with f2 key.

Reset a password


if you mean the bios password you need to remove the bios battery for about 10 minutes, if you mean the windows log on password, then you will have to get into windows in safe mode (press F8 on boot up) and get in as administrator and delete or change the password on your user account.
