How to Unlock Windows 7 Laptop without Password Reset Disk - Image 1
Someone has changed your user password and that person is not available? Or you might simply have forgotten the password yourself? Is there a way to unlock Windows 7 laptop without password reset disk? Don't worry! Here are a few ways to unlock password protected Windows 7 laptop if you don't have a password reset disk.

Method 1: Safe Mode

The built-in Administrator account is available for every Windows installation. It has no password by default and you can only access it in Safe Mode.

While turning on your laptop, quickly and repeated press F8 key until you see the Advanced Boot Options screen. Use the arrow key to select "Safe Mode" and press Enter. When you get to the Welcome screen, click the Administrator icon to login. Open the Control Panel and select User Accounts applet. From there you can reset Windows 7 password of any locked account easily.

Method 2: PCUnlocker

When you're locked out of your laptop, you need to use another PC to make a PCUnlocker boot media. Download the ISO file of PCUnlocker, then install it onto an empty CD (or USB flash drive). Boot off your Windows 7 laptop with the CD.

After successfully booting from the CD, the PCUnlocker program automatically finds the SAM file for your Windows installation and lists all local accounts. Choose your locked user and click on Reset Password button. It will erase your password and unlock the account if it was locked out or disabled. Reboot and eject the CD, you can then login without a password!

Method 3: Trinity Rescue Kit

The Trinity Rescue Kit (TRK) is a troubleshooting solution that belongs in every admin’s tool box. This great tool allows you to reset the password of Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It is a Linux-based boot CD so it's a ideal choice for Linux geeks to unlock Windows 7 computer password.

Method 4: System Restore


If you don't want to use the Windows 7 password reset methods above, you can choose to perform a system restore. To decrease the risk of losing files, make sure you restore your system to the most recent restore point when you remember the password.
