Forgot my Admin Password, no Factory Reset Disk

HP Recommended
HP 15-g029WM Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

 So I forgot my local admin password, and I need that password to be able to do literally anyting on here (I'm now regretting that decision) I bought the laptop on craigslist previously and it was practically brand new so I dont have the windows 8.1 factory recovery disc, and its way to expensive for me to just go and buy since they are close to if not over $100.00! I have literally tried everything! And I'm starting online school this monday and I have to download Microsoft Office but I cant do that because I dont have my local admin password. Can someone please help me!!!!

If you refering to windows login/admin password visit site below & make a boot cd or usb stick to remove the windows account password.

If you refering to password at power on (bios password) this can be reset by entering a wrong password 3 times until you see a error/halt code, jot this down & visit link below to generate a working password .
