As i read your message.. i only suggest you to contact the person you have bought your laptop and ask him/her about the password...if not..your only choice is to reformat your system so that you can access it again...

try to search some programs in the internet maybe you can find other remedies other than reformat...

Unlock web cam from parental lock


Firstly, I would suggest you to login to your administrator account and check if you're able to use the Webcam. Since parental controls cannot be applied on administrator account, it's worth trying to use webcam by logging into your administrator account.

Step 1: Test the webcam by logging into your administrator account
a. Log off from the account where webcam isn't working.
b. Login to your administrator account and check if the webcam works.

If the issue still persists, then the webcam might not be locked by parental controls. It is in use by a different application.

Step 2: Perform a clean boot
A clean boot helps in eliminating software conflicts. Visit the link below to know how to perform a clean boot.

I do not have the webcam password . how do i retrieve it


I would suggest just removing the parental controls altogether.
1. Click the Start (Windows 7 Button) Button in the bottom left.2. Click on Control Panel3. Click on Uninstall Software (bottom left of the Control Panel)4. Scroll through the list and find the Parental Software5. Select 'Uninstall' on the top bar, right above the list of software.
Another option would be to uninstall the webcam driver and reinstall as a new piece of hardware. This will make the computer think it's a brand new device and the parental control would not carry over.
