information to get around passwords should not be given out on forums like this.

I agree 100%
There is no way to verify the situation and such information could be used for illegal purposes.

if you didnt make a password reset disk, or a second logon account J.I.C, then all you can do is a factory reset.

You don't forget a password on a laptop, sorry.
Talk to the rightful owner and get the password or contact the manufacturer and be ready to give all your personal info on it...good luck!

Password recovery software will not work so you may as well not waste your money on that.
You cannot do a factory reset on a password locked laptop I have no idea why that was suggested.

of course you can do a factory reset!! generally with a F key at boot, (depends on which password of course), but its arrogant to assume everyone with password issues has a stolen laptop, its also defamatory to publicly suggest that to everyone who asks for help.

i have typed in a password and forgotten which was a cap etc once or twice in my time, s--- happens. you shouldnt assume so much and be so arrogant about it either.

princecorum,
read the first two responses and then make a decision. Unfortunately I just assume the reality of the situation and if I hurt your feelings, I guess that is your thing.
If by chance I am wrong, then i have no problem apologising, that's the person I am

99% of laptops ESPECIALLY windows 7 password issues are suspicious, but yes, I'll keep in mind that 1% when answering no problem.

What boggles my mind is why the specs brand & model number are never given when asking for password help. I guess if they would post that it would probably be easier to get quality answers from the helpers here as we cannot suggest cracks etc....

If you do a Google for 'offline password and registry editor' you'll find a free tool rather than the one 'recommended' in post #9, which you have to pay for.
