My Dad has been locked out of his laptop after incorrectly inputting his password 3 times. He is now being prompted to use a 'reset password flash drive'. I know what his password is (he forgot to put caps lock on for part of it). If I use my laptop to create a reset password on my USB flash drive using his password will I be able to use it on his laptop to re set his password and get into his laptop for him? He has a DELL laptop-mine is Toshiba.

Not knowing your OS you can download and run a free program called OPHCRAK which can find your password for you once you are locked out. There is on version for Windows XP and one for Windows 7 and Vista . You have to burn the program as an ISO image and boot the computer from the disc .you may have to change the boot order to do this.
