Forgot administrator password for windows 8.1 on hp pavillion hpe

When I improved windows 8 to 8.1, I recorded the administrator  password; however, it doesn't work. 

Today I purchased and downloaded "Windows Password Recovery Standard from SWREG.  It doesn't help because an administrator password is required to run it.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Forgot administrator password for windows 8.1 on hp pavillion hpe

Hi lloyd56, sorry to hear that you are having issues with logging into your computer. I have found a great step by step video that will explain in detail on how to reset your password. The site that I am sending you is NOT supported by HP in anyway.        http://www.password-reset.com/?gclid=CJSXm4fH5LoCFc9i7AodVnAAsg   

 

If this does not resolve the issue, please feel free to write back for more instructions.

 

Thanks in advance

Re: Forgot administrator password for windows 8.1 on hp pavillion hpe

A few days ago, I also forgot my admin password for Windows 8.1 laptop login. So I was locked out of Win 8.1 computer for several days. During that period, I was still looking for ways to reset Windows 8.1 admin password all the time. Even though there are several ways provided on Internet. But what I was worried about is that they probably would do harm to my laptop. So I couldn’t take my laptop into risk. Until I found Windows Password Genius, I realized I should try to use it to remove Windows 8.1 forgotten administrator password, because I didn’t have to worry about that anything on computer would be damaged or lost if I used it.

 

This video would make it easier to learn how to use it.

I also forgot my Windows 8.1 admin password, then at last I used a tool called SmartKey Windows Password Recovery and it helped me a lot. I followed this youtube video to recover Windows 8.1 password - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PBDEgJb6OE

Re: Forgot administrator password for windows 8.1 on hp pavillion hpe

Hey, friends! Don't worry.  If you are the only adminstrator of the computer, you can also reset the forgotten password with a password reset disk. The password reset disk can be created with a blank CD/DVD/USB flash drive. Please follow the instructions below to reset your password on Windows 8.1:

  • Download and install Windows Password Key in another accessible PC.
  • Burn a reset disk with Windows Password Key.
  • Reset your password with the created disk above.
