Forgot windows login password for laptop running vista

\015 I use the fingerprint thing to log in, and it is not working. So I tried using the password, but either that is not recognising it either or I have forgotten it. I know the bios password.\015\012\015\012So now I can;t get into my laptop. I have not backed up my data and I didn;t do the password reset thing, as I didn't know it existed.\015\012\015\012Help.. need to use my computer for work. All my taxes are on there!\015

Answers :

To remove or change the Windows password is not easy to do, but can be done with Linux Password Removal program. You need a computer savy friend to help you.
\015\012The other way is to install Windows from scratch again to get a working laptop again but you may lose your data. There is a way to retrieve your data before you install Windows again.
\015\012If you didn't protect the hard drive with a password and if you did and still know your BIOS password, THEN go into the BIOS setup and remove the password on the hard drive first.
\015\012Then remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Insert the adapter into a working computer's USB port and the computer will see this as an external hard drive. You can then open the folders and view your files. Copy the various folders and files you require to a USB memory stick and/or burn these to a CD etc.
\015\012Now you can return the hard drive back to the laptop, install Windows, the device drivers, your programs and copy the data back into the laptop.
\015\012It pays to backup your data regurarly because if the hard disk fails and this can happen unexpectedly, you will lose your data.
