Try Password Reset - Windows 7 Forums

If that fails then you can use a Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to rescue your files on the old PC to an external HD or USB flash stick using Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console. You can also download and burn to CD Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0 Free to rescue your files.

Then use the booted Win7 DVD on the old laptop to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 with the licensed version of Win7 which is provided in Step 1 to burn to DVD or write to bootable flash stick.
