Hi MilesAhead

I don't have an installation cd and the backup disks i made when she first had the machine have somehow gone astray? I have tried running a live cd "Linux". It loads but then the machine freezes. Looks like a dustbin job if there is no solution.

I have got Windows 7 backup disks but they are from a different machine.

Near the top of the Tutorial is this in large font:

If you don't have a proper Windows installation disk, have a look at the link below to create a repair disk that can be used to reset your user account password in Windows 7 and Vista.

You can go to Geek Squad at Best Buy and they'll reset your password for $29.99. Just in case nothing at home works. A friend took his laptop there and it took like 3 minutes.
