When you power the machine start pressing F8 until it goes to a menu screen, then start in safe mode. Log in as administrator, not your account, from the administrator account you can clear the password in your account.

I have a password on my computer, after an extended vacation I can no longer recall what it is, how can I access my data again?


you forgot to tell us what password.
Is it a bios password or windows password?



For Windows Password, As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:

1st Method:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type \Administrator\ (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from \Control Panel - User Accounts\.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
Windows password Recovery software:
for example:Windows Password Recovery . It is easy and convenient to use.




For Bios Password, also two methods.

1st method . Open you computer box and Discharge to the Board manually

2st method . use BIOS Password Recovery


Hope it help to you.

You must shut down the computer first. Turn it on, and repeatedly tap F8 and enter safe mode. From there on, click on administrator, and when Windows loads up, click Start> Control Panel> User accounts> Choose an account> remove password.

Put new hard drive in my laptop it is asking for a password


If it is asking for a password shortly after turning the laptop on ,and before windows or anything else loads, its likley the hard drive wasn't new. It appears that for some reason it has a lock password on it. The only way in would be to contact where you got it from and see if they can help. Generally speaking new drives dont have these locks. If its after windows loads up then things are a little easier. Whilst your laptop turns on hold down the f8 key until you get a windows boot menu. Select Safe Mode use your arrow keys and press enter. When Windows loads it will look slightly different. Just Click on Start --> Control Panel and navigate to the Users Icon. Open this and select your user, then click change password to reset it. Just reboot after these steps and you should be able to login. If niether of these things work than leave a comment and I will get back to you with more help.

Please take a moment to rate my solution.
Thanks.
