How can I retrieve the password
i was given a hp g60-230us laptop running vista home premium because my friend forgot the password and couldent find a utility that would work
i would like to keep the laptops programs and such intact because i was told he has all sorts of useful goodies like games on it and i WILL NOT REMOVE CRAPWARE AGAIN!(i did it for him)
is there any fix to retrieve the password and retrieve it or reset it?
after i get it going it may have 7 on it
i forgot to mention he also mentioned he even managed to get one of the battery knotches stuck and wont come out
i wanna get this fixed!
try this trick:
Login with the default administrator account
Step 1: Start Windows PC
Step 2: When you can see the Windows login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box
Step 3: Type Administrator as Username and leave the Password field blank
Step 4: Press the Enter Key and then you can be able to login the default windows administrator account which is it created by default when install windows.
Note: When you input the key combination Please don't put the cursor on any account. And if you change the name or password before, you cannot login by this way. so only windows password recovery utility can help you,check this out:
