The enable password is weakly encrypted with the type7 encryption, you
have to login first
with a user/pass, then try to enter Enable mode. Also the TTY and LINE
passwords are
often protected using this weak hash.
We can't help you any further than this. There are very easy to follow
reset procedures
that will allow you to gain access to your device if need be.
