    Making the long story short

    My parents bought a new laptop, put a password and forgot the password....(I know)

    There is no backup bootable disc(missing....)

    Do you guys know how to solve this problem???? We tried remembering the password but to no avail...

    Are we allowed to post these kind of things?. In any case, boot into safe mode upon start up, hit F5. Then go into administrator, from there go to control panel and you should be able to remove the passwords for other accounts. Rep if it works :D

    sorry dude but this thread is gonna get closed. NBR's has a policy about bypassing security measures

    I suggest you call up the notebook manufacturer and they might be able to do something...

    sorry you are likely going to have to find this on your own, due to NBR's policy on this. Hint: elgooG

    There are several good programs for doing this, but because they can be (and frequently are) used for illicit purposes, you'll have to look elsewhere to find them.

    Try the safe mode suggestion first, because that SHOULD work.
