I changed my laptop admin password one night in a hurry and forgot to write it down. I don't have a reset disk either. Can anyone help me get back into my laptop? I really need to get in there. Thanks in advance.
* If related to BIOS/startup password before Windows loads
In this case, please enter some password (wrong password) 3 times, press ENTER and you should receive a new window stating system disabled and a code similar to this one (For HP Mini, should be 10 characters) :
Please, take note of the system disabled/halted code (write it down).
Click on "Get password" button there and you will receive your unlock code. Take note of the HP computers password and enter it in the system disabled screen , press ENTER. This will unlock your BIOS/reset security settings and PC should be able to start Windows (if WIndows can load).
Let me know how it goes. Provide your feedback/update.
