    resetting vista password ive tried everthing

    hi, my uncle has a acer aspire 4710 laptop, and his mate thought he'd be funny by putting passwords on it when he was drunk haha, anyways passwords have been forgotten. there is a password on bios and the system isnt set to boot off cd or flash so i am un able to use any bootable software, administrator and guest acc's are not active only 1 account " user " but they cant remember the pass. he says he didnt get a a windows disk so im out of ideas... please help.
    Thanks, Clint....
