Hi Paula ,do onething try to connect the hard disk with other cable which may be used by cd/dvd rom..Now when connected start your computer and go into bios ,i hope you know how to enter into bio.now there check whether your hard disk is detected or not...

It might also be possible that the current hard disk is set to be Master.if so make it cable select through jumper setting..best would be to use the second cable to attach your hard drive.Now if you get both the hard disk shown by your bios.start the computer os and back up the data...

let me know if it works ......

Best of Luck.

How to reset admin password


Reset Windows 7 admin password is not hard in fact, as long as you follow these methods to do.

Method 1: To Reset Admin Password with Administrator Account
On Win 7 logon screen, click user and "Switch user" to choose another administrator to sign into. Turn to Control Panel and navigate to User menu. Choose the account you want to reset its password, and remove its password. And then set a new password for it.

Method 2: Reset Admin Password with Password Reset Disk
You have two ways to get password reset disk. One is create it when you still have the administrator password. The other is to create it with third-party software, such as Windows 7 password genius.

Similarly, on Win 7 logon screen, after type wrong password, click link "Reset Password" to go on. Or insert password reset disk into Windows 7 computer and boot it from disk. Windows 7 Password Genius runs, at the same time, all accounts and password list for you. Choose the administrator account, and click "Reset Password" to finish Windows 7 admin password reset.

Hello,

If you have forgot the password of the account with Admin rights, then you can boot into Adminstrator mode from Safemode and then you can reset the the password of the Admin irights account.

If you have forgot the password of the Admistrator account itself, then it is not possible to reset it.

As a workarund you can try booting with the Win 2000 prof CD.

Select R to enter into Recovery console. Thereit will ask for password, just press Enter. That should resolve the issue. I read this in hacking books and it worked to one of my friend.

Hope it works for you!!!
