My ass hole husband password protected the kids laptop and forget the password. Can't even use a disk in it without the admin password. It is a toshiba satellite l305 and I know you can reformat it by pressing buttons at start up but we have tried and tried and the only option we get it restarting with disks (which we don't have) AND the admin password (which we don't have)

My DH works in IT.  His response was "Good luck with that."   Sorry.  :(

Really? There has got to be a way, people hack into government files, I am sure DH's password can be bypassed some how... Thank you for trying though.

I got it! If your DH wants to know incase he ever needs it I downloaded a free ophcracker on my other computer, used an ISO program to burn it to a disk, and while it was unable to crack the password I was able to delete the admin account and promote the guest account to admin, restart, and then go in and make all the passwords what I wanted and I never lost anything or had to reformat!

Thanks again for asking for me!
