YES! and even if you can't recover the password you don't need to!

You can use a CD called System resuce CD thats free and if you press F2 while booting this CD you will be given the option to recover any Windows Passwords. If you have a password protected Hard Drive that will not fix it. You will need to take the hard drive out of the laptop and extract the data using a Linux PC. You can get a free version of Linux from
When logging in as root you won't have to worry about passwords for retrieving data. just use the password "root". You can access all the data on any device.

Unlock Windows password with Windows built-in Administrator account.

Here's how this admin unlocks forgotten Windows password:
Start your computer and wait for the Windows Login or Welcome Screen. Once it shows, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice and then type Administrator in the pop-up username box, but leave the password column blank. Next you could successfully log onto system. The following steps for resetting the forgotten password are quite easy. You can make it from "Start->Control Panel->Users Accounts".

Besides, Windows Password Reset is a great choice .

Unlocking a password protected PC

Well, the suffering just happened here or there. But the first thing you should check is whether you have the password recovery CD burned while you set the password.

If you don't have, then probably you have to rely on a third-party software. Take a try this All-In-One password recovery software, it should help clear and reset the lost password and bypass the locked computer.

Note: you can do this on your own, no need to send the PC to anybody for any repair because it's dangerous for your private information stored on the computer, best regards.

If your laptop received a password protection and that password was forgotten there is no user manageble way to recover or disable the password. Maybe the person who tampered with it tried to reset the BIOS by removing the battery or things like that. They woun't work as the password is stored in a NAND ROM memory section of the BIOS, meaning that it isn't volatile and can't be erased like PC's BIOS by removing the power and battery. If you can't modify BIOS settings or you can't get rid of the "locked" display image, you need to go to a service center to have the password removed by them. This operation requires BIOS flashing and can't be done by the normal user as it involves specialised hardware. Sorry for I can't assist you further with a easy fix or something like that.
