Problem: Forgot administrator password in Windows Vista?
I must have messed something up because now I can’t sign the administrator account with the right password. I changed the administrator password last night. But I’m sure that I log on to the administrator account with what I changed to. It said that it is incorrect password. And it said no drive when i try to rest it by clicking the Reset Password link under the password box. Can someone walk me through how to recover or reset the forgotten Windows administrator password? It’s a windows vista home premuim dell computer.
Things you need to understand before Windows password recovery:
1. Please make sure the Caps Lock is off as the Windows password is case-sensitive.
2. Please make user that you are trying the right user account if there are many users displayed on the Windows Vista logon screen.
3. If you want to reset Windows password by clicking the Reset Password link appearing after enter a wrong password, it’s required to create a password reset disk before the password is forgotten by using the Windows built-in tools.
