There is no need to do that. Try this first:

Boot into safe mode (press F8 key several times just before Windows boots up).

Select SAFE MODE

Wait for it to boot, and if there is an Administrator account, choose it. More times than not, there is no password on this account. From there you will be able to change YOUR account password via User Accounts under CONTROL PANEL.

Please let me know if this works. If so, great. If not, there are other ways to do what you need instead of reformatting.

My daughters laptop forgot her hdd password,it will not let her get on laptop.tried to download erase hard drive ,cd player will not work .is there any way to download to a usb driver


I doubt you can erase the hard drive unless you can enter the hard disk password.
You can download the hard disk password removal program from these WEB sites, copy them to an USB memory stick and run the program on the laptop from the USB memory stick.

I locked my coby and forgot the password how can I recover it?


As long as you linked the tablet to an email account.
Enter a password incorrectly 5 times and you should get a button that says "Forgot Password?", hit that and follow the prompts.

Otherwise

This solution works for most tablets.

Power off the tablet

Tap Power, then press and hold Power + Vol Down until you get a menu, then release

Look for a Recovery or Factory Reset option, and select it.*PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA, INCLUDING THE PASSWORD*

I locked myself out of my laptop how do i unlock it


Wow, another person locked out. LOL. Ok which password? The Bios Password? The Hard Drive Password? The Windows User Account Login Password? And for which Operating System?

If it's the hard drive password you're out of luck because that is set to keep thieves from gaining access to sensitive data. 99% of the time when you see a laptop where the user does not know the hard drive password, it's a stolen laptop.
The Bios Password and the Windows User Account Login Password can be cracked or allow you into the system, however if you're running Windows 7 and you forgot the Windows User Account Login Password, you will need the Password Reset Disk otherwise you'll have to reload your operating system.

I forgot my hdd password of my notebook acer 5100.what i'm gonna do?


You can go on line to www.ebay.com type in laptop and beside it put password locked, a number of software solutions should come up, make sure it is the same operational system you have. narrow the search and type hard drive password locked. The only other option is use a recovery disc "if you have one" that came with the laptop and do a fresh install of your windows, this will erase the hard drive completely along with password and all your files.
