    The password can be remove if you can boot in command prompt. Restart your system and press F8. Choose boot in command prompt. Then type netuser and hit enter. It list the number of user account. Again then type netuser nameofuser *. Here put the user account in place of nameofuser and type * and hit enter two three times. Reboot the admin account password will be removed. If this does not work you can use ophcrack. This is a bootable disc which can be used to find Windows login password.

    Dont you have a dvd drive inside the Acer aspire 3690 laptop? You can also borrow a cheap dvd external writer and then burn the image file of the operating system on the dvd and simply reinstall windows vista in your laptop.
