I don't remember my password and I am locked out of my laptop. How do I recover this? I don't have a recovery disc.

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

If you Google for Trinity Rescue Kit, you will find a site where you can download an ISO file that you can then use to make a boot CD to then use to reset your password.

 

Once you have that file, download and install ImgBurn and use the Write Image to Disk option to create a bootable CD.


Good Luck

Thank you for replying. I created the cd. I inserted it, but nothing happens. This window pops up. Any other suggestions? I am not a novice at this.....:)

You have to BOOT from the CD, not insert it while Windows is running.


Good Luck

I tried it. It goes straight to the login page with password. Any other suggestions? Thank you.
