My daughter has lost her windows login password(vista}


There is software for sale that will remove the password. A bit expensive! Maybe a cheaper option to install a fresh copy of Vista from the recovery partition and restore your backups to the new system as all data will be lost. If you have no backups, purchase a new external hdd, install it in the laptop, put Vista on it and put the old drive in the caddy. You can then copy your data over to the new hdd, or purchase the software to unlock the windows password.

A friend gave me there champaq computer 5000. I have never seen or used Gnome software that is on it NEED HELP also how to Rest user name and password they don't remember it. Can i out my w windows vista...


From what I understand, the computer is running some flavor of Linux. You can either learn how to use Linux of install a version of Windows. You must know more about the original software that was installed (Windows XP, Vista, Win 7 or Win 8). You need to buy a licensed copy. Your Vista has already been installed on and activated for a specific computer, so it cannot legally be used on another computer.
Try Linux. Download a free distribution from the Internet (Ubuntu for example). Burn it on a CD. Configure your computer to boot from the CD-Rom. Run a demo of Linux (without installing) and see if it recognizes all your hardware. If it does you might decide to switch to Linux.

I forgot my password for my laptop dell inspiron 1720


Hello,

This works with windows XP or Vista-

Windows Vista Repair through DVD Windows Vista comes with a very handy feature from Windows ME days -- System Restore. Vista's System Restore is far more sophisticated than its previous iterations and can be of a real help here. 1. Just pop in the Vista DVD, make sure your BIOS is able to boot (start) from DVD-ROM first.
2. Press any key to boot from DVD when asked.
3. Set the Language to install, Time and currency format and Keyboard or input method
4. Now click Repair your computer, select the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
5. Click System Restore, and then click Next.
6. Click the restore point that was a day before you changed the password, and then click Next.
Doing this will set your computer back in time to the particular date when it was working fine. Don't worry, you won't lose any data -- only that any settings or programs installed after that date will not be accessible anymore. All you've to is re-install and redo any settings that you did.
7. Confirm the disks that you want to restore, and then click Next.
8. Click Finish, and then click Yes when you are prompted.
9. When the System Restore process is complete, hit Restart computer.
10. You can either remove the Windows DVD or just don't hit any key on the keyboard when it asks again to "Press any key." The computer will start much faster if you remove the Vista DVD.
11. After the computer restarts, click Close to confirm that the System Restore process has finished successfully.
12. After you log on with the old password, change the password for the administrator account if you like.
13. This step is most important -- Remember the password this time.
14. Restart the computer to make sure that your new password works fine.
