Hi, I am trying to resurrect an old laptop and its been over a year since i
used it last. I stupidly didn't write down the password to log on, and don't
know what the admin password was either. I tried the default of
'Administrator' without any password--no luck. I tried to hit f8 or f5 (one
of them worked) and asked it to boot from disk but it isn't picking up the
recovery disk in the drive.
Does anyone know how to break into this laptop and reset the admin password?
The only thing I can get to is the Windows Log On and I'm stuck.
Thanks in advance!
