After spending the better part of my mental energy today trying to figure out my laptop password, here is my super tech tip:

If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7 create a password recovery disk.

1. Go to your Control Panel
2. Click “user accounts”
3. On the left side of the screen click “create a password reset disk”

You need to have a disk or usb drive. A file will be created that you can use if you forget your password. Believe me, that’s the first thing I did tonight!
