Start tapping away at the F11 key immediately after powering on, as soon as the HP logo screen appears.

You still can DIY a HP password reset disk to recover your lost password:

Step A. Download Windows Password Recovery Basic and burn a .iso file into a blank CD/DVD or USB Flash Drive;
Step B. Boot the burned CD/DVD or USB Flash Drive from the PC lost password;
Step C. Reset a new HP password.

The experience that I forgot windows password happened to me a few weeks ago. My friend Acheson who is an IT engineer recommended me to take use of  Windows  Password Reset, which is very smart and just take me a short time to reset a newly password.

A few days ago, I also forgot Windows 7 password, I have tried many tricks but to no avail. Eventually I reset Windows 7 password using Password Recovery Bundle, which is a software I found on google. It should also be helpful for you. Good luck!

Reset Windows 7/Vista/xp password with CMD. Key steps:

Step 1: Logon your Windows as administrator(You also can logon Safe Mode with Command Prompt, pressing F8 when restart your computer, hit up/down key to choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt and hit Enter).

Step 2: Click on Start, type cmd in the Run box or Search box and press Enter.

Step 3: Type net user, all user accounts of your computer will be listed.

Step 4: Type net user “UserName” “NewPassword”(replace UerName and NewPassword with yours), press Enter, then the password will be reset as new one and you can logon Windows 7/Vista with it. You also can use a program base on CMD.

Tap the ESC key immediately after powering on, then select F11 for System Recovery to return the laptop to Factory setup where you can start over. Setup without a passowrd. If a password is desired you can always assgn one later once you have it all setup by going into Control Panel, User Accounts.
