Gaining access

HP Recommended
Hp pavilion slimline 400pc
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit)

I am finally getting my computer started after receiving as a gift, at one point I had access into it and changed the password from what it originally was however years have past since then and right after the password change I ended up boxing it all back up. I have forgotten my password and currently do not have internet access to it. I do not know what type of account I have on it and I do not have a recovery disc that I'm aware of. What options do I have to factory reset the computer or reset the password anything helps! Thank you for your time
