Forgot only account password, no vista disk or password reset disk..

Posted: 06-02-2008, 09:59 PM

I forgot the password to my computer, and it is the only account on the
computer. I do not have a reset disk and I dont think I ever had a Vista
disk. I cannot use that computer at all. What is the easiest way I can
fix it?

Remember the password?
"What is the easiest way I can fix it?"

Failing that--
It depends upon what else you did, such as encript the hard drive. In
general, there are some ways to change the password. None are easy or
simple, your first requirement. The laptop may have an OEM method of
restoring by running a backup of the original OEM Vista load. Usually this
is invoked with a key combination during the early stage of bootup.
Unfortunately, if this method is used, you will loose any application
installs and data that were placed on the laptop by you.

Reinstall Vista(with borrowed Vista DVD, using the product key on you
system), or create Recovery disk to boot off. Boot into Vista advance
recovery utility and perform a System Restore to a point before yo
changed the password. The old password will then work
