I have a HP Pavillian Notebook. When I first got it I gave a password to get in. I live alone now and had no reason to use a password. So I went in and checked to remove the password entrance. The next day I turned on my laptop and it went to the sign-in page as usual so I entered my password and it said that was the wrong password. I had the same password for 3 years and used it daily so I knew something was wrong. I have been locked out of my laptop for 3 days. Can anyone help me? Is there a backdoor password I can use to get in to my laptop? Thank you for helping me.

I think every system has a Administrator account and in some cases users leave its password blank.
i dont know how to login to it but you might find something if you google it

mk8, any luck on this problem? I did the same on my daughters Mini 110. While in Bios, I highlighted "startup password" and I reset defaults ( [F9] ). Saved, [F10] and now I can't enter the correct password ( which shouldn't even prompt for now ) for over a week! If anyone can help please.

The Setup Utility default settings go into effect when the device restarts.NOTE: Your password, security, and language settings are not changed when you restore the factory default settings.
Nevermind. It never changed and we figured it out.
