I put a password on my lap top (Vista OS) and not it will not take it. I was told to go into Safe Mode, but it is not accepting it meaning I can't get into Safe Mode. I read on a Google site it says not to force it into Safe Mode. Is there anyway I can get passed this without restoring it with my disc from HP?
Thanks

We are sorry but per forum rules, we cannot help you bypass a password

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.
