If you are talking about the user password..you have no choice but reinstalling the operation system ...Use the recovery partition if you have one ..or recovery disk ..Or if non of these are a choice ..try with a boot able disk of the operation system ..
the procedure is pretty simple ..with the partition ..if it is present ..just restart he computer and press the F key for boot menu on start ..(its written on the start menu ,,usually is f12 or f11 for hp ) in the boot menu ..choose the recovery partition ..and choose complete reinstall of operation system ..It will bring it to teh factory settings ..
with the disk is a little different ..Insert the disk ..press same boot menu button ..and choose to boot from the disk ..it will ask you to press any key to confirm booting from disk ..and start the procedure..
if you use a operation system boot-able disk ..you proceed like with the recovery disk ..Insert it ..restart ...use the f12 key ..and choose teh cd /dvd as boot device ..and confirm by pressing any key ..and follow instructions ...I suggest to format the C drive before loading the files..(you will have the choice ) ..this way you get rid of any viruses for sure..
You will also need the drivers for it if you use a OS boot-able disk ...so ..download and store them before starting ..
Please ask if you have any questions ..

How do i reset my password in laptop


If you've forgotten your Windows password and you're on a domain, you should contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you're not on a domain, you can reset your password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.

If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.
