    Expired Password on Vista- Can't log in

    Hello,
    It seems that my windows vista (home premium 32 bit) account password has expired. I have a HP pavillion dv6500 laptop and I use the fingerprint reader to log in. When I scanned in this morning the following message appeared: Login Failed:Your password has expired. I have also tried all previous passwords and tried logging in with nothing in the password field, both with negative results. I have tried using ophcrack to find the password but that also failed. Given that this is the only account on the computer (it is an administrator) and both the guest and administrator accounts are disabled, is there any way of me logging in? (Just to be clear I am not asking how to disable password expiration but rather my password has expired and I cannot log in). Also I can't log in in safe mode either.
