Hi, welcome to the forums

You should be able to follow the tutorial below which will allow you to get the Buit-In admin up and running. You can then use it to remove the password from any user account.

User Account Password - Change from WinRE

Hope it helps

If you press F8 when booting you should get an option to Repair Computer, you can access it from there

You could pick up a $50 External CD/DVD ROM Drive that connect's to the netbook via USB, and boot into the disk that way.

Hello 7Loveme, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If your computer supports booting from a USB key drive, then you can use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to create a System Repair Disc to a USB key drive to use to boot with into the System Recovery Options screen.

System Repair Disc - Create


Afterwards, you should be able to do this.

User Account Password - Change from WinRE

Hope this helps,
Shawn
