Email reset

I had a family member die. And I don't know the email password used to log into the computer. What can I do to start using the computer again. I can't get it to go into the factory reset mode.

Email reset

Hi @abarner08,

 

Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips, Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you out 🙂

 

I understand you are stuck on the Windows login password screen and you are unable to perform a factory reset due to keyboard issue, don't worry, though, as I have a few suggestions which should help to resolve your concern,

 

Perform a Hard Reset on the Notebook and follow the steps suggested here:

 

Try this first: Use the HP Guided Solution:

 

Let us guide you through the solution

 

Microsoft account

Reset your Microsoft account password online. You can reset your password on any device connected to the Internet.

 

See the Microsoft password reset page (in English) to reset your password.

 

Local account

Use one of the following options to reset the password for your local account.

 

* If you have created a password reset disk, use the disk to reset your password. See Reset your local user account password using a password reset disk.

* If you do not have a password reset disk, you may be able to reset the password from a different administrator account. See Changing the local user account password from another user account.

* If you are not able to access the account see Accessing your account when no other option is available.

 

If you need help determining the type of account you set up on the computer, continue to Which type of account did you create?
