Help resetting password for HP Pavilion Windows 8

I bought an HP Pavilion notebook a few months ago.  It has Windows 8.  I was away from my computer over the holidays and, stupid me, forgot the password.  I assume it is the Administrator's password--the one that is requested when you turn on the computer.  Can someone help?  

 

Thanks!
