Forgot PW / using fingerprint

2009-06-22, 10:17 AM

Dear all,

 

I have the most stupid challenge ever.

 

Since early 2007 I'm only using the fingerprint reader for login on to windows so, I have forgotten my password.

 

I need to to a recovery soon, and my questions are:

 

 

Will I be able to do this without my password

 

If I am, will I be able to shoose a new password?

 

And, if not, how is the best way to proceed with this?

 

Thanks alot and best regards,

 

Christofer

When you do the recovery it will over write any password information and when you start windows it will ask you to create a new password.

Any password information in the BIOS will remain untouched.

So, as I don't have any PW except for windows logon I will be safe and just do a normal recovery?

 

This would be the best answer I could get so I hope I understood you right...;o)

 

Thanks a lot!
