Cannot get into admin account on Windows 7 Ultimate

Windows 7 Administration
I have Windows 7 Ultimate. I used a 14 character random password. Some trick or tricks I used on it because it is taped to the keyboard. I can not get into the admin account. I ran ophcrack on it and it stated it was disabled? Ophcrack did not find the password. What can I do? This is what you get for not using your machine for about a year.

    Your query is not cleared here! Who is the owner of this computer/laptop, it belongs to you/ other person, why I am asking because, you have asked for admin password? Is this at your personal/ at office environment? There are several tricks to recover password (not all time works), but password is for security reason. If we people break it then what's its value, yes, also I am agree, sometimes, people forgets more important information by mistake. Are you able to login as a general user on the same computer/ laptop & work as usual as you did earlier. But you asked for admin account/ password, please clear this.

    If it was taped to the keyboard, not a good idea, it should work. If not there, are some cracks out there but we cannot verify you are the true owner of the computer. You can try and take it to a local computer shop and have them open it up for you. Strong passwords are used for a reason. You need to find an algorithm that is easy to remember.

    As you mentioned, even ophcrack could not work, it is better to contact an expert to overcome this issue. If you are going to reinstall/ format (not recommended), remember, you must have original license no/serial key.
