I have seen lots of forums saying that if you forget your vista login password and you dont have password recovery then you may have to reinstall your windows vista completely or buy a third party password recovery software which may cost atlest £50 . Well I think I have figured out a way to bypass the vista password if you have recently put in a password or changed the password.
if you r using a Dell laptop this is going to work for sure.
1. Insert the vista dvd and press f12 once the computer is starting up.
this will show you the boot menu
2. Select cd/dvd drive.
3. Let it boot from the cd.
4. At the screen where it reads install windows vista, you will find a small link that reads repair windows.click on it.
5 Select the previous vista installation and click next
6. Now u will get a number of options including system restore
7. Select system restore for the earliest point possible when there was no password or the password was what u knew before.
9.Your computer will be restored to the oldest restore point where u dint have a password
It worked for me.
You can give it a try. Its better than losing valuable data .
all the best.
