The unfortunate thing about laptops is "proof of ownership". It is unlikely that you will get password help here and it is hard to imagine how one can forget a password that is in use daily.

Every single day I read posts about forgotten passwords. Yes, it can happen that people forget even they use them on a daily basis. If someone is a bit older like me (85 years) than it can happen very often. I have all my passwords and other important notes on a text file and store these files on each of my computers and on a memory stick. In addition I have that list printed out and hangs on the wall beside my main computer. This way I can tell Mr. Alzheimer that he has not complete dominion over me.

Cheers Peter
