    Default Password help to log in after install

    It took me months to save the $ needed to replace hard drive and new windows disc. I finally got someone to put the hd in and received my new disc yesterday. I had a good install, used it for a bit, then shut down for a time. Now after going back it keeps rejecting my pw. I am reasonably sure I have the right one. Same as I used before.

    My question, and please help, what do I do next? Do I have to reinstall windows again? Is there a way around this?

    I have a Lenovo, 64bit, windows 7 home premium.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

    Take a look at some of these Windows Password Recovery tips. Or recover from lost Windows passwords using native tools.

    If you still cannot, a reinstall seems to be the only option.

    You can reset the password by booting off PCUnlocker, Ophcrack, Offline NT Password & Registry Editor or BartPE.
    A update is appreciated if these tools work for your computer.
