How do I reset my laptop to its factory settings?

I can't remember the admin password and I'm completely locked out and want to reset the whole laptop without a disk possibly?

You don't tell us the model but on most HP laptops you can access a recovery partition and program by tapping F11 as you power up. Not sure this will work if an admin password is set. But it should since that just blocks changing BIOS settings. If you want more help we will need the model number and version of Windows
