Unlock laptop

cq57
I have managed to forgot my password to unlock my computer. I have a Compaq cq57. It is asking for a disk to reset the computer. I don't have the disk. How do I unlock it?

Thanks in advance

If you don't have any files,photos,etc that you can't afford to lose you can always do a System Recovery to start fresh with no password. To boot into Recovery, immediately after powering on start tapping the F11 key.

 To get it done without a System Recovery there are several free tools availale;
