I tried to use all methods including Linux disc to restard, Trinity Orpcrack etc. nothing really works.

Reinstall windows, and this time DO NOT use a password, you don`t need one.

Why would you use a password if you can't remember it a few days later?

As suggested do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and don't use a password.
