Question: A while back, I dropped my laptop from a pretty high distance and it pretty much killed most of the hardware. The hard drive however, somehow survived. Now, I would like to get my data off of my old hard drive, but I am having a bit of trouble... My old laptop had a fingerprint scanner that I used 99.999% of the time, it became so convenient that I forgot the password to my Vista login. Because of that, there is no way for me to login or find any of my files. Yes, I have tried the basics, OPHCrack couldn't get my password, Windows NT/2k/XP/Vista Change Password / Registry Editor / Boot CD didn't seem to do anything for me, it would tell me that it changed the password or deleted it yet when I restarted, nothing was changed. Now I am out of ideas...think you can help? ----Things That May Help You Help Me---- 1. The default "Administrator" account has no password set, I just don't know how to login to this. 2. I don't technically need access to Vista, if there is a way for me to grab my files using a live disk of Vista, I will do that, but I know next to nothing about Linux. Help me out? Thanks. Edit. I should have mentioned. I am using my hard drive by removing a hard drive from a friends and plugging mine in.
