Thanks for the reply.

I appreciate your time and effort.

 

If you don’t remember the password system recovery is the only option left.

(Note: you will loose all the data if you do system recovery.)

 

If you don’t have recovery media, contact HP Phone Support to order a recovery media.

 

I hope it helps and if you feel I have answered your question and concerns,

Please mark this post as a solution accepted and Kudos would also be appreciated.

 

Cheers.
