I received an HP Pavillion DV 9000 Laptop with a sticker saying it has an INtel Centrino Duo & Vista that I can't get into as it is password protected & I have no way to get the password. Here is what I found on the internet about this laptop:

Here is the system info on my laptop which has a recovery disk made;

Model: HP G60 Notebook PC
OS: Win 7 Home Edition
Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
Type: x64-based PC
Processor: Pentium (R) Dual-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10 GHz, 2100 Mh, 2 Cores
Bios: HP F.62.11/19/2009

I have tried booting in safe mode, using “Repair your computer”, booting from disks I downloaded from Miro - Windows Vista 32bit recovery disk torrent & something from Cyberlink Power2Go that I downloaded on my HP GP60 & saved to a CD, but they don't work either.
