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

\015 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\015

Answers :

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,
\015\012Have 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.

\015\012Hope this is the solution you need.
