I think if you start in safe mode (press the power button like you would when you start it normally and then start tapping the f 8 button and it should go to a black screen with white writing and you can choose safe mode) and log in as administrator you can go to the control panel and go to user accounts and i think you can erase the password from her account in there somewhere.
let me know if that works

Forgot my password for my hp laptop


If you have forgotten your Windows login password then you can download a copy Hiren's Boot CD which is a CD image file (.ISO) then burn this to a blank CD and boot your computer from this.


On the initial Hiren's boot menu, select the option for:

Offline NT/2000/XP/Vista/7 Password Changer

and then follow the guided prompts shown on the further menu panels.


This tool will allow you to reset your Windows login password to all blanks (i.e. no password).


If you have forgotten a BIOS level password then go to

Forgotten Password


when booting after the post (beep) press the F8 key and load in safe mode. from there try and login as Administrator, 99% of computers have no password for that login. if you have the welcome screen just click on it, if you have the network login type in "Administrator"

from there you can goto the control panel access the user accounts and change/remove the passwords (this is based on the idea your computer is running xp/vista...based on data from hp i'm going to guess XP is what your running)

Forgot password to hp laptop how do i reset it.


I don't know what OS your HP laptop is installed with.

If it is Windows 8, Windows Password Hint, PIN code, Microsoft account can be used to login HP laptop. After logon successfully, change, recover or reset Windows 8 password is available.

If it is Windows 7, Password hint or another administrator account may help you. But if you don't have all of these, try password reset disk. Create it before Windows 8 locked or with Windows 8 Password Recovery tool is OK.
Besides these, Chntpw USB disk also works for Windows 7/Vista etc.

I forgot my Password to the Login of my Laptop


Have your HP laptop login password forgotten? Do you have another administrator? Have you created Windows password reset disk on your HP computer when it is available? Or whether you have installation CD?

If you have administrator, just change HP login account to this administrator and access HP computer with it. At this time, no matter which account, you can easily change or remove its password on Control Panel.

If you have password reset disk, on Windows login screen after you type incorrect password, there will be a message "Reset Password" prompting you to reset forgotten Windows password with reset disk. Just follow password reset wizard to do.

If you have installation CD, it will help you to restore HP computer or repair computer. But it is still dangerous for us to use it because it will delete some important data on your computer.
In consideration of data safe on computer, Windows Password Genius provides a safe Windows password reset environment WinPE. With it and in such password recovery environment, you will don't need to worry about data lost or damaged.

This is a video showing how to use it.
