How would they install that third party
program if they can't log in?

I have an old PC I too have lost the account to.

Re: HELP! I FORGOT MY HP NOTEBOOK PASSWORD!

So I suppose you put in a CD (It's an old system) and it will work.

I guess I can download it to my PC and burn
a CD? Is that how it works? Or do you need
to actually get the program.

All I want is some old email addresses from it.
I'd be in someone's debt.

Thanks

Hello Bob,
Yes you need to download it and burn into cd.
but if dont care about OS and your worry is only for DATA then we have another solusion too..
remove hdd from this pc and connect it through usb casing which can use as a usb hdd.

plug it to any working system and copy all data, best luck,

It it the BIOS password you forgot, or an XP account password? If it is the latter, I use an bootable CD called Emergency Boot CD-ROM, version 0.6.1

There's a way to reset Administrator password and it doesn't involve reformatting and reinstalling Windows. The solution is called Windows Password Reset 7.0. It can reset almost all Windows passwords in seconds. It is a great windows password recovery tool: http://www.resetwindowspassword.com . you can log in again just in one second. It also support windows 7 password reset.
