Hello every1 newbie here an also winning the Darwin Award for Most Mistakes ever Made in Basic PC Use an I want free help! :hysterical::) So anywho I have a HP desktop that had vista home premium oem 64bit thus I have product key but here we go: Started (when I made the mistake of using a comp.) I first got PC seems I got a virus an could never for yr an hlf figure out why kept sayin I had no OS well I also couldnt back up recovery disk, Microsoft said virus caused it (lol abt wk after I bought it an the store went outa business only had it fer month). So reciently I let a person try fix 2 it well they passworded it as an Admin Im usin a User acct. an they installed a vista ultimate torrent an also took the flash drive with drivers. I also today deleated a factory partition as I had no unused (what ever the word is sorry) my choices were the HP an the factory an of course after I deleated it I found out that the disks for the Vista Ultimate dont contain the drivers so I cant reinstall but then I got a sort of clue and tried to get a program to wipe out the password so I can fix this mess but nothing wks probly cuz I deleated the partition I think No Clue really. So How can I fix this without the DVD or better yet a PASSWOrd an I cant torrent no password no friends have this relic I want vista premium cuz I have key. Or I could get drivers but dont know what I need.

TY Every1 I Knw what a dizzying mess I created :huh:

So you are able to use the machine??

I know this is gonna sound stupid but why not just ask the person who passworded it to give you the password.

We are not really supposed to help with passwords here Forum rules.
Google is a good place to start for removing the password.

Do you have a vista disk if so you could re install.
And I would be happy to help you get the drivers if you have access to another machine.

well this comp works Im using it on a user acct.
I never got the orig. vista home premium back up disks cuz by time abt 1 wks after I bought this maybe 2 wk anywho I was already gettin errors an tryin to restore but never wked right well by time I got a clue after bt 5 wks the store was closed an the company now outa state said they couldnt help yep used comp. so after abt yr called Microsoft they said it had to be a virus an it somehow corrupted the back up before I copied it error had something to do with no OS Installed which I couldnt understand as I was usin it an all virus had been vaulted an removed or so I thought.
So fast forward again an myself still stuck on stupid I had a friend try to fix it as all I really needed is the vista home premium disks oem 64 bit anyway she torrented a vista Ultimate put it on here not sure where she got key cuz mine is for premium an I knew she passwd protected my comp on set up an I had a cow then asked sayin the comp. was still havein probs. crashin if she could take comp down stairs to fix I said sure well she never removed the passwd an I deleted a partition tryin to reinstall the ultimate copy where upon I discovered the disks have no drivers on them they were on my flash drive which she also took.
Im not even sure the disks are any good like said I wanted premium as thats what I have a ligit key for an I just dont have the very few dollars it takes to order from Microsoft. I really didnt want a torrent but would if could but no passwd!lol
Cuz of the passwd I can NOT log into anything or fix anything cuz some error occured an the sys. date an time went back to Jan 1 07 an I cant of course reset so It would seem that over a space of time Ive managed to create a snowball effect of stupidism Starting with the no OS system error I didnt catch on to for over a year an I swear no1 in Colorado Springs owns Vista Home Premium lol No1 may be able to help me but arent I eligible for some sort of Award here? :clapping: TY for Ur help
Better??
