I forgot the log in password for my Windows Vista laptop

\015 I changed my password. Then I went out for a week and can not remember it now. I have tried safe modeand tried to reboot with the operating disk all I got was a black scrren no instructions or anything else, just a white blinking cursor in top left hand corner. I also never set a question for it when I changed the password.\015

Answers :

What is the make and model of your computer and the size of the hard disk and RAM?
\015\012When you power up your computer, does your computer go through a POST (power on self test), do you get any error messages?
\015\012Do you know if the RAM and hard disk are OK?
\015\012What happen or what were you doing prior to your computer failing?
\015\012Have you got any virus and firewall protection, if so were they enabled?
\015\012
\015\012Suggest you reseat your RAM and hard drive to make sure they are properly connected (they may have lost their electrical connection or the contacts have developed slight corresion) before you try installing Vista again.
\015\012Check the BIOS settings for the hard drive, set it to auto (detect), some laptops not only detects attached devices but also require the hard drive, CD/DVD devices etc to be enabled.
\015\012Some laptops such as Dell, IBM, Compaq/HP do not need the BIOS setting to be changed to boot up with the CD/DVD first, just press F12 and then select a tempory boot device.
Try logging in as administrator and don't entry a password just press Enter.
This only works if by luck that the password was not set when Vista was first installed, and was not added later.
There are hack programs in the WEB that can disable Passwords, failing that you will, need to re-install Vista, all drivers and programs again.
You have now learned a lesson the hard way.
Good luck
