What could I do to unlock HP/Dell laptop? No admin account and password reset disk available. HP/Dell laptop is pre-installed with Windows 7 operational systems.

First, try to guess Windows 7 logon password according to password hint
When we are locked out of Windows 7, it is likely to be that we have forgotten Windows 7 password. And if we forgot something, we may guess similar possibilities. For example, password often has something to do with a loved one's birthday, a pet's name, a telephone number, etc. With this way, maybe you find the lost Windows 7 password instantly, or you can't find out it after several hours. You can try it, but not the best.
Second, Unlock HP/Dell laptop with Windows Password Genius tool
If it does not work while you have tried the above ways, and if you don't want to lose the data and files that might be very important for you, you had better try this. On the whole, especially on efficiency and security, iSunshare Windows password recovery is the first choice. Not only removes Windows 7 password instantly, but also it protects your computer in a safe condition.
The Windows password recovery tool is used to created reset disk when your computer is locked. Insert USB or CD/DVD drive into accessible computer; follow the prompting message to create a password reset disk.
Third, Clean install Windows to remove Windows password
This is the worst way you may really don't want to try although it may solve your computer problem. If you think the operations of Windows password recovery software is complex, cleaning your computer would be more complicated. Advised you take it when you have no other choice but you must have to unlock your laptop.

How to lock a keyboard

  1. Press the Windows logo key + U. This will open the ease of access center. Click on the keyboard icon. It will say, "make the keyboard easier to use" next to it. In some versions of Windows you will need to get to the option by pressing the left shift key five times rapidly.
  2. Select "turn on sticky keys" and "turn on filter keys." Select "save." Your computer will now only make sounds when the keyboard is hit.
  3. Follow steps 1 and 2 to unlock your keyboard. Unselect the "sticky keys" and "filter keys" and click on "save."
  4. Lock your workstation. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del. A blue screen or a box will pop up that has a variety of options, such as restart or shut down the computer. Click on "lock this computer."
  5. Lock your workstation using the keyboard. Press the Windows key and the L key at the same time. This will lock the computer. To unlock press the combination again.

Master Password for 2.5'' Hitachi laptop HDD

if locked while booting up, before even windows is loading: you've got a master password in BIOS to worry about.No way but to ask the manufacturer to remove it.
if you cannot access windows anymore after booting up:
boot up from a win cd, go through setup,
install a new copy of windows and try to find your personal files on the disk, back them up and reboot from a win cd again, this time format the whole harddisk and set up a clean, new installlation of windows.(warning: all beforehand data will permanently lost then)

good luck
