Forgotten HP laptop password

Posted 11th Jan
Hi

I have forgotten my password for my HP laptop as I usually log in with a pin code but it’s not letting me log use that anymore. I don’t what the password is.

Is their any recovery options? I don’t want to lose all my data by resetting it.

I had this earlier today. I just did a forced shut down & restarted the laptop and all was OK again using the original pin
It’s not working for me 😩
If you setup a Microsoft account when you first got the laptop you can try logging in with your email address/password, also the passwords don't necessarily have to be the same.

find someone local, they will be able to back up your data and reinstall windows, otherwise if you fancy a challenge...

I've never tried these options as I would normally reset things.
4sysops.com/arc…rd/ used this method recently as used to use ntpassword but was unsure about it because it was win10 and had raid.
