HP Laptop forgotten password?

So somehow i have completely forgotten my password. Tried everything but seems to have completely gone out my mind. How can i unlock my password for free? I've had a look online, and burned a CD to reset it but didn't get anywhere. Don't really want to reset the whole thing, i have my files, pics etc..

Obviously the last resort is paying for the software, but if there's anything free then id try that first.

Thanks!

What password word are you talking about? Power on bios? Windows? Which version.

If its a bios password you will need to remove the battery inside the lappy ....that will remove the bios p/w....it looks like a watch battery the size of ten pence piece.

Hirens boot cd can remove windows passwords. Saved me a few times when people have locked themselves out of computers. Theres a step by step guide in the link below.

good luck.

Ophcrack download the iso for your version then use unetbootin to make a bootable usb stick.
Depending on the complexity of the password it can take as little as a minute to find it.

try with a usb keyboard in case your keyboard has been damaged. also try typing your password in the username box so u can see it. the language may have changed on your computer inadvertently

The classic error is having caps lock on!
Don't forget to set a password hint windows.microsoft.com/en-…int
And don't forget to let us all know how you got on and mark best answer / answered!
