We can't help with forgotten passwords. You will have to login to the default Administrator account and create a new user account. Follow these instructions to access the Admin account: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/wi...

✔ Best Answer
That won't work if the user cannot log on. Even using the command prompt from a setup disk would still require the user's password. Reinstallation is the only real option apart from the one the OP mentions, though if the laptop doesn't have a CDROM does it actually have a floppy drive?
