    Here is the situation:
    Mother got daughter laptop
    Mother put in her name/password (presumably) upon initial boot
    Laptop turned on/off (cold) several times with no problems
    Daughter changes the name -does nothing with password
    Now upon startup she is asked for a password (never happened before) and the
    password that her mother initially used is not working.
    Machine is asking for a password for the daughter's name not mothers

    You wouldnt happen to have something like a window password reset disc would

    If you have 100% no way to reset your password, use this site. There is a
    iso that will reset your windows password. (is your administrator account
    enabled? It doesnt appear in safe mode)
    It will work with any vista version (I used it before.)

    Are there any other accounts(Admin) on the computer?
    If not you can probaly find a iso that will change/blank your windows

    The administrator account on vista is not activated by default :(
