Locked out of my laptop

Let's presume that your computer is running Windows 7/8.

In that case, on a working computer with a CD-burner, Google-search for "Nordahl offline password".

Download this software, and follow its instructions to write a bootable CD.

Boot your computer from this CD, and follow the on-screen instructions to "blank" the password.

Shutdown.

Boot from the disk-drive.

At the login prompt, just press ENTER.

Set a new password.

 

Or, if running Windows 10, and logging-in with a "local" account, do the above.

If logging-in with a Windows account, see: https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx?

to reset your password.

Then, login to your computer with your Windows account, and that new password.
