HP laptop does not recognize password and Forgot password isn't working

HP Recommended
Pavillon
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello, Last night I was working on my HP Pavilion laptop and it scheduled an update, after the update was done I began to put in my password, and it told the password was incorrect about 6 times, and it's a touch screen too, usually itll bring up the touch keypad, but it didn't, so I tried the "Forgot password" and it told me to contact my admin, after that I just decided to shut it down for 10 minutes, I turned it back on and it has been sitting on the "Just a moment..." Screen for hours until it got back to the password screen, I just got this laptop and already don't like how I have to go through this, please please help, This is the 3rd new computer I got that already is giving me problems. Thank you.

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Do you have Microsoft Account or Local Account?
