Forgot password

Rest password but forgot it. It is not giving me my passwird hint. There was no recovery cd made. Is there a way to bypass password or maybe put in last reset password?

Hello @jhinson123

 

Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting.

 

I think you talk about Windows login account password and not a BIOS password. Correct me if I am wrong.

 

There are not many things that could be done officially but you can definitely try to use all passwords you remember. If you use Microsoft online account (email) and not a local account, you can also try to enter the PC with previous and current passwords you remember,  PC online and offline (connected/disconnected from the Internet).

 

You can also read this HP thread for further steps >> https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/I-forgot-my-password-can-HP-hel...

 

 

Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.
