Lenovo V100 - Forgot password



I have had my Lenovo V100 for about 2 years now.  Soon after I bought my laptop, and after having initially set my password, I forgot it. I have been logging in using the fingerprint authenticator since then. 


Now, stupidly, I have managed to delete the fingerprint authenticate software and have no way of getting into my personal account!  I have tried to re-install the Lenovo fingerprint software from my guest account but am unsuccessful ( get an error that says: "Error 1720 - There is a problem with this windows installer package. A script required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Custom action RemoveATSwpDrvFolderscript error -2146828218").


So I reckon the other option is to try and find a way around the forgotten password.  Any ideas?


Many thanks,

These link should help you:



There are many cd based systems that will run from a bootable CD and be able to recover your lost password.

Re: Lenovo V100 - Forgot password

i'm sorry, but getting help to crack passwords is not allowed in this forum.  You'll need to remember the password.  Locking thread.
