Female roommate is out of town, but left her laptop here. How can I get past the Windows 7 login/password screen?
It's full of win. She got drunk one night and showed me videos of herself with other girls and even a video of her being pissed on at a bar by 3-4 dudes.
Will post if I can get in. She's kind of a bitch and behind on rent anyway.
bumping while i find some relevant images... srsly.

tl;dr - getting an admin account on any windows machine
I do it all the time recovering data for friends, you take it out and just hook up all the applicable sata connectors, no password since youre accessing it through your account on your drive. The computer sees it as just data storage.
Okay, windows 7 is cake.
What we're going to do is create a user account, grab what you want, then delete that user account when we're all done.
so first, we need to get a command prompt at the login screen. This is the hardest part.
You have physical access though, so it makes it a lot easier.
We will need to boot into some sort of bootable media. Most computers will have a recovery partition on them by default.
Reboot the computer and repeatedly tap F8 over and over again until you get a black screen asking about safe mode.
Use the arrow keys to select startup repair. It will run some tests, then give you the option to use tools or run commands, something along the lines... I can't recall the exact wording off the top of my head.
Once you've got a screen open that has things like Revert to Restore point, open command prompt, etc... Click command prompt.
This command prompt may or may not select as the C drive the recovery partition, this isn't where we want to be. You'll need to keep changing drives and checking them till you find th right one.
So first type "dir" without quotes. If you see a Users and a Windows folder listed... you're in the right folder, if not, type "d:\" without quotes and hit enter. Type "dir" without quotes again, and look for the folders. Repeat these steps until you find the right drive letter. If it says a drive letter isn't available, move on to the next one You'll eventually find the one you want to be in.
Once you've found the right drive letter, we're going to go into the system32 directory... and no, we're not going to "delete system32", we actually have a reason to be in here.
type the following: copy magnify.exe magnify.bak
Type: copy cmd.exe magnify.exe
When you get to the login screen, click the accessibility link on the bottom left of the login screen, select the magnifier option, and a command prompt will open at the login screen with full system privileges.
More in following post.

Use Oph Crack. I charge $300/hr for password recovery and it only takes me 5min with this. You download a iso and put it on a disk. reboot her computer and set it to boot from disk. just follow instructions on the screen.
ophcrack DOT sourceforge DOT net
Okay, now that we have a command prompt at the login screen with full system level access... We need to create a user account.
So type into the command prompt, type the following: net user TempUser *
you'll be prompted for a password, give the account a password and hit enter, type again to confirm.
Now we need to add the user to the local admins account.
Type: net localgroup Administrators TempUser /add
Close the command prompt.
Press ctrl+alt+del twice, you SHOULD be given a freeform logon prompt to type in a username... but it's possible depending on some variables that you might not. In which case, reboot and you'll see the TempUser account listed next to her account.
Click it, login with the password you gave it.
do what you want, then when you're all done, logout.
Open the hidden command prompt from the Magnifier link, and type net user TempUser /delete
you don't have to switchthe magnifier back if you don't want to bother, just close it... she'll never know and you'll have it there to get back in if you need to... and this way, she'll never know because her password was never changed.
no, if you have a spare SATA cable its actually really, really easy. literally all you have to do is plug it in like you would any other hard drive. then turn on your pc and boom, there it is on "my computer"
OP obviously doesn't know enough to possible even know how to make a bootable disk or USB stick to use any tools.
These are the most relevant, as they're step by step instructions that a 10 year old could follow. And don't require any additional tools.
beeeecause software takes more time and effort than doing something with hardware?
maybe it's just me, but downloading an ISO off the internet, burning it to a cd/thumb drive, and then going through whatever process it takes you through is a hell of a lot more complicated than unscrewing the bottom of the laptop, unplugging the HDD, and plugging it into his desktop.
at least with the hardware way, you dont run the risk of fucking things up (unless you're a total dunce and like, plug it in with the pc still on)
Yes when I do it for a client. If I charge that much you know it works. Thats why I added that. If a client knew I just used a open source rainbow hash reader and charged that much they'd be pissed.
Literally the easiest fucking way. Make this disc, it is the fastest one I've ever done and it comes with its own ISO burner program as well. You'll be in in less than 10 minutes.

I have a midterm tomorrow. Basic physics, covering simple harmonic motion, travelling wave, standing wave, and interference.
I will only have 30 min to study before the exam because I wasted all the time, formula sheet is given.
How should I cram for this exam?
The teacher also said there will be proofs, conceptual questions, short questions, and a few long questions. The length of exam is 1 hour and half.
I'd like to see someone try to break into my computer. This nigga decked out with anti-air missiles, a wind-up Nazi soldier, three feral coyotes and it is set to blow and completely annihilate everything in a 10 mile radius if it is successfully accessed by anyone not having my fingerprint pattern.
