    hey guys. i was wondering if there's a way to see my previous log in password from windows 7. i reset the password due to forgetting it but now im stuck with another problem. the old password i used was the same for my online game account. i can't get that reset due to not having the same credit card active anymore. is there a way i can see my old password?

    I gave no answer because I don't think it is possible. You overwrote the password with a new one, the old one is gone.

    Is the 6-yr old BIOS on my Biostar mobo - simply too old for Win-7?
