Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD HP G56-122US Notebook
First try logging in using the administrator account. If the operating system is Vista or Win 7 then administrator's account might be disabled.
1. Search on the internet for "Hiren's Boot Disk" download it and burn it to a CD. Boot off of Hiren's Boot Disk and look for the option that will allow you to reset the password on the computer. Follow the steps it shows and you should be able to either change or remove the password.
2. If there is no important data on the computer then try a "HP restore". Usually the owner's manual will tell you how to do so. It will tell you something like boot up the computer and press "F11" and you will be able to go into the System recovery options. Follow this link, but this will most likely wipe out all the information on the laptop and restore it to new (like it was out of the box)
Please rate if this helps.

Testimonial: "i reset the laptop and alls well.your advice was a great help thankyou."
If you did not create a password reset disc during the initial setup of the operating system then you have a couple things to try.
1) Try logging in as a different user, if there are any on the notebook, and maybe reset the password that way. You could try logging in with the username administrator with no password. This may or may not work depending on the operating system.
2) The other option is to boot up off a live CD like Hiren's boot cd to reset the password.
