Overriding Vista administrator passwords

July 19, 2011 at 10:13:30
Specs: Windows XP
I have acquired an HP Pavilion dv6500 laptop from a family member "all above board" but it is password protected, other than having the laptop wiped what would be an alternative into overriding the password?

Hi Wanderer, Unfortunately the answer is no she hasn't gave me the password, my assumptions are that she as either forgotten the password or she's making me playing games with me this because she as given me the laptop for free. B###h

Most forums, like this one, don't support password recovery. But I can point you in the right direction.

Go here and lookup lost administrator password

Hi Wanderer
I really don't know what to make of your answer, i'm wondering whether your reply is analogical or just analogy. Analogical reasoning involves judging, categorizing, or developing an argument about something new on the basis of its similarity to something familiar. Reasoning by analogy is something people do often. If you oppose a government policy that led the country into war, you are reasoning analogically. If you tell your mum that nagging you about badger baiting is going to lead to the same kind of rebellion your sister showed in response to curfews, your argument rests in an analogy.
I wonder if the forum will like that one. Still, thanks for your reply i will sure try of what you have suggested. David

He was being polite and he provided a "LINK" to a page that could help you.

Do you know what a link is?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
