    Was it a hard drive, bios, admin or user password ? If just a users acct. then taking out the cmos battery should reset user settings back to default.

You could try calling HP again asking for the tech support dept. Tell them your situation and ask them if they can offer you the default factory password (backdoor password). Also try surfing for backdoor passwords for your make and model pc. You could remove the cmos and hope there isn't a tpm chip which stores passwords on your board.

Try the old password, the new one (again), and no password (blank field) and make sure to reboot in between attempts.
Please explain "Creating password recovery disk", unless you just meant "Recovery Disk Set"?
Post your results so that we may be able to offer more advice.
Thanks.

Hi,
If you have forgotten the password of your user account there are only two options which can be used.
1)If you have two or more user account on the this computer you can try to access other user account of other user and access user accounts in control panel.
Remove your user account password and log off and try to access your account.

** you can access recovery manager from the F11 option or Use the recovery cds.
while performing the recovery you will get the option to back up your data please back up your data before performing the recovery or you will loose all your files.

Reformat


(A) Try interrupting the boot sequence and telling the computer to boot using the last known good configuration. Here's how: 1) Turn the computer on, and press F8 repeatedly until the boot options menu appears (the menu items include "Start Windows Normally," "Use Last Known Good Configuration," etc.). Use the arrow keys to select "Last Known Good Configuration" and press ENTER. The computer should boot correctly.

if it dont this is the procedure given below to format the whole operating sys 1) Put the CD in the CD drive and turn the computer on. 2) As the computer begins to turn on, you should see the message "Press __ to enter setup" (it's usually F1, F2, or F4 - models vary). Press that key.
3) You should then see the Setup screen for the BIOS ("Built-In Operating System") - using the arrows, find the "boot disk priority" settings and select your CD Drive as the first priority.
4) Exit setup, saving changes (usually by pressing F10). The computer should then boot normally using the CD.
