I have a new HP laptop that I was so excited as I was setting it up 4 days ago. The following day after the set up and turn my computer on, the first window that opens up is the "password" window. I keep typing what I assume was the password but it won't recognize it. There is a link that says "RESET" but when I go to it, it tells me to insert a USB. When I insert a USB, there is a Windows window that opens and says "Wrong USB". :womanmad:
I can't get past those two options.
I went to the microsoft account (from a different computer), typed in the password and it works!
How can I reset the password on my computer so I can actually enjoy my new laptop?
Is there a way to set it up so I don't have to use a password when I turn on my computer?
The password is for the user account (windows login). You'll need to enter the correct password in order to login, the other option of USB works only if you did a password reset disk save to an USB, in this case you did not. So, there is no other option than to try guessing the password or restoring windows.
