I cannot open my DVD drive without having access through the affected, PC therefore cannot load a password reboot disk. How do I manage to get the drive to open without having no password. There must be some way for me to be able to open the drive. I look forward to your response
Many thanks, Eric
there is no button on the drive but after pressing the cover several times it actually opened. I will therefore prepare password reset disk on my laptop and hope it is accepted by my PC. I will update you as to progress, but not tonight
You'll need a PC connected to the internet that has a CD/DVD burner and a blank recordable CD or DVD disk. Please, follow the
instructions below to recover your computer's password:- Click the following link:
http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd - If you are using Windows 7 click the ophcrack Vista/7 LiveCD download link and save the ISO image file to your PC desktop.-
The next step is to burn the ISO image file to a CD. You can use the application found here if your CD burning
software can't burn an ISO image to disk. http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download (use Mirror 7 to download)Important Note: ImgBurn is a free program that offers to install additional (unwanted) software as part of it's
installation process. Please uncheck all boxes and decline any license agreements on the pages you see presented. (place the blank disk in the computer) Once the software has been installed from the opening screen select Write Image File to Disk and select the ophcrack ISO file that was downloaded to your desktop and burn.
Attachments are only available to registered users.
Once the disk has been created place the CD in the problem computer, turn it off, turn it on, press the shortcut key
responsible for the boot menu (usually F2, F12, ESC, F10 - depending on the make and model of your PC ), choose the
CD-ROM option, and boot.- When the program comes up(takes a minute or two), choose Automatic and press Enter-
Sit back and allow the program to locate the passwords for you. It may take up to 10 minutes to display the passwords.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
I have followed your instructions to the letter, but every time I try to create the password disk on my laptop it keeps aking me to place the CD in the tray. I have done this several times but it continues to indicate there is not a CD in the tray and keeps giving the same request? What next?
Hi. Several things could cause this. Please take a look at the image below. I need to know the corresponding information when you have Imgburn opened on your machine. You'll see the Source showing the Ophcrack ISO file selected.
What is your Destination showing as? This area will list the model of your CD/DVD burner. In the lower left corner you'll notice it says Medium Not Present. This can be caused by the drive being empty (we know that's not the case), improper media in drive
(a situation where there is a disk in the drive like a blank DVD but the drive can only burn CDs) What type of blank media are you using?
Nothing proposed by yourselves worked. I eventually took the PC to a local repair centre and they fixed it within ten minutes.
