I have this laptop I haven't used in a while but I forgot the administrator account password and I have no installation disc or RW disc. I've tried dozens of tutorials but none of them are working out! I can't activate the built in admin account because you need to run command prompt as administrator to do that, which isn't possible as I don't know the password. I've tried doing a system repair but you need an installation disc for that. Again, I have no RW discs or anything that I can use for that. Please help!
