Anybody forgot their password for Windows 7 on an HP Mini netbook?
I've taken it to my company's tech support guys with their recovery discs but they have failed to recover or reset the password. Now I can't get into Windows 7 starter on my laptop anymore
I need help URGENTLY!

Do you have another Administrative account on that computer? If you do, you can login to that account and go into User Management and reset the password from there.
If not, I suggest you try a third-part password recovery software, and this article may help you.

This tutorial is about how to break HP Windows 7 password with flash drive without losing any data. Usually, when we realize losing laptop password, the best way is using password reset disk if you have created it before.
The MOST efficient way if you don't have a password reset disk, try to find Windows 7 Password Key to reset your account
password to blank without knowing the current password
