i bought a laptop from a pawnshop and its locked. how do i reset the user password without a usb flash drive or floppy disk
Without USB or reset disk, you can reset your windows 7 password with Windows built-in Administrator account.
Firstly, you start your computer and press “Ctrl+Alt+Delete” twice at the Login Screen.
Secondly, you just type Administrator in the username box and leave the password box blank.
Thirdly, you hit Enter key and then log into Windows system.
Finally, you go to “Start->Control Panel->User Accounts” to reset the forgotten password.

Hi :)

Two things....

1. That wont work without the password hes missing...

2, ITS AGAINST Toms rules to help cracking a password...and as he says he got it from a Pawnshop ...ITS ALMOST CERTAINLY STOLEN....

Imagine if it was yours..... :(

All the best Brett :)
