Turn the computer off. Turn it back on and start tapping F8 when you get the 'advanced boot options' choose safe mode and use the administrator account to change the password from there.

It would have been easier if the Windows Operating System was mentioned, but still considering if you have Windows 8 or Windows 10 installed, Please follow the instructions mentioned on the link given below:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/account-reset-password-forgot-faq

If you have forgotten your Windows 7 password and you are on a domain, you need to contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you are not on a domain, you can reset your Windows password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.
To create a password reset disk, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/create-password-reset-disk#1TC=windows-7

To reset your Windows password by using an administrator account, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/reset-windows-password#1TC=windows-7

(Important: If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.)
To know more about resetting Windows 7 password, refer to the following Microsoft support page:

Cant remember my user account password


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

I HAVE AN LG INCITE AND I FORGOT THE WINDOWS PASSWORD AND CANT GET IN, HOW DO I RESET TO FACTORY SETTINGS? OR BYPASS THIS? When I first turn it on it asks me for my password and I cant remember what I put,...


You don't have to get it to factory setting as this will wipe all partition data. The fact is you are able to rely on this password recovery tool to reset your forgotten Windows Administrator login password easily. After that re-start your computer and you'll access your PC as normal.

Locked computer


Bugsy, just in case-have you tried without a password? By pressing and holding down the power button 5+ secs will power down the machine. Removing the battery will shut it down too. The issue is "will you still be locked out when you reboot?" You should try starting in safemode when you reboot (pressing F8) during the initial boot process and see if you can log in as administrator(no password). If you can access safemode try to reset the administrators password in user accounts. Let me know if you've made any progress. Tim
