Try downloading it again or burning it slower, it may have caused an error. also, try getting it from a different site. also try the not live cd version and just run it.(if that is an option)if you are completely locked out of windows and have a mobile hard drive, try using a linux live cd(try puppy linux, it can be installed to usb flashdrives and have the session saved onto the cd) and install then run the linux version of the not live cd. it SHOULD work. but i haven't tried it. hope that helps. cheers!

I have an IBM thinkpad x41 and it comes to the Windows xp screen needing a password and I dont know the password can someone help me?

You can use Ophcrack, an open source software. You don't need any access to Windows to be able to recover your lost passwords. Simply visit the site, download the free ISO image, burn it to a CD and boot from the CD. The Ophcrack program starts, locates the Windows user accounts, and proceeds to recover (crack) the passwords - all automatically.

Here is the link to download you ISO file to burn to a cd.

Or use Another computer by installing the exe file and make a cd for your recovery:

I have a acer 5920 laptop and i forgot the login password

If you have Windows XP try this:

When booting up your laptop right after post (the beep) press F8 key and select safe mode. From there at the login screen you should get the welcome screen, select Administrator. After the desktop has loaded, open start menu, control panel, user accounts.
Inside here you should be able to change/remove your password.

If you have Vista or if the administrator on XP is password protected too try this:
You have to reset or crack the password with a socalled Live CD.. A kind of system/program running from a cd outside Windows..

You can try and download the ophcrack live cd, burn it to a cd and leave the cd in the computer and restart (You can use the program ImgBurn to burn it as a image):

ophcrack download site:
ImgBurn download link:

How to burn it with ImgBurn:
1. Load ImgBurn.
2. Switch to 'Write' mode.
3. Insert Disc in Burner.
4. Select Image to burn.
5. Click 'Write' button.
6. Restart computer with cd in it..

You may have to the change the boot order in the BIOS setup if the cd doesn't start..

Unlocking situation

Hi there,
For my solution, you'll need:
- access to another PC with a CD burner
- a blank CD-R
- high-speed internet access

There is a program called OPHCRACK
Download the Live CD image from here:

Use burn the downloaded image file to the blank CD-R... not the same as copying the file to the cd... you can't use windows to do it, you'll need Roxio or Nero or some other software that supports burning an ISO image.

Once that's done, take the CD to your computer that you can't remember the password for and insert it into the CD drive. Turn on the PC. Some PC's will boot from CD-ROM first, but just in case, look for an option on the boot screen that says something like "Press F10 for boot order" and select CD-ROM as the boot device.

Ophcrack will appear with a boot menu. Try the first option first. If it doesn't sucessfully boot, you may have to restart the computer and try a different option. The VESA mode almost always works for me.

Once it has sucessfully started, you will see the process begin and after a while you should see the password(s) appear on the screen. Write them down, quit ophcrack, remove the CD and boot normally.

Good luck.
