Gateway Laptop-forgot user password and can not get in! Operated by Windows Vista

Hi! Like 3 days ago, i changed my password so my sister wouldn't get on the computer! But then i forgot my password, and now i can not get into my computer. I tried the ophcrack, which is supposibly suppose to crack your computer to get your password. It did not do it though because i guess my password was too long! Please I really do need help!!! I asked Gateway and they told me that i just have to use a recovery CD meaning that it will wipe out my whole computer, as if it were new and i really do not want to do that!! Please I am in desperate need of help! ASAP You will be my life saver if you helped me out! Thanks

Boot into safe mode and log into the administrator account. 70% of the time there's no password setup and will allow you to change your other user's password. If that fails, then try using your ophcrack which i doubt will work, but use it on the admin account and change that password.

Otherwise, use something similar to system commander using the locksmith feature to reset the password.

Hello,
Have you tried booting in safe mode. When you turn on computer, keep pressing f8 key and it will bring up a list of startup options, choose safe mode. Then when you reach log in screen, the administrator user will be provided as an option to login. Once logged in as administrator, you can edit any of the user passwords by going into Control Panel, Users. In there you can select which user you want to edit and change the password to a new one.

Hope this is the solution you need.

Thanks,
Lolita

    Forgot password


    Hi Laurence,

    Try going to safe mode by tapping F8 on startup.
    login with the admin account. By default the password is blank so you should be able to login.

    Now go to control panel > user accounts > select your account and click change password or delete password.
    else create a new profile.

    If you are unable to login with the admin as well then you you

    that should fix it..

    Fortgotten password


    Uh... there are ways to discover the password, but for obvious reasons, can not be posted.
    Try rebooting in safe mode and log in as administrator (the default password for this account usually is blank). Then move all your documents from
    C:\Documents and Settings\"your user name"\My documents\
    and
    C:\Documents and Settings\"your user name"\Desktop
    to a folder away from the My Documents folder.
    The only "legal" solution is to delete your account and create a new one, though you will lose all your settings (wallpaper, etc).

    Gateway Laptop forgotten password operated by wINDOWS Vista


    well, i am regret to hear this. since the gateway password is the most secure password, in my opinion ,you can only contact the supplier of the laptop.they can offer the service that resume the system normal and make the assurance the data wonn't lose.
