Part 2: Other 3 Methods to Reset Password on HP Laptop without Disk
Method 1: Performing HP System Recovery
By performing a full system recovery on your HP laptop, you will remove all the data on the laptop. This includes the password, which allows you to get control back over your laptop. To do this, follow these steps.
Power off your laptop and remove any peripherals except the mouse, monitor and external keyboard (if you have those connected). This includes items such as USBs and external drives.
Press the power button and then as soon as your display turns on, press the F11 key repeatedly and wait for an options menu to appear.
Choose to Troubleshoot, then Recovery Manager and then System Recovery.
Pick "Recovery without backing up your files" and then choose next twice.
Wait until the HP laptop has been formatted and the default software is installed.
Set up the laptop as new. Your password will have been removed.
Method 2: Use Another Admin Account to Reset Password
Administrator accounts give you almost complete control over your PC's features and system. They allow you to do almost anything on your PC, such install any software for either your user alone or for all users in one go, make changes to system settings such as restrictions for websites and create/remove user accounts with different levels of privileges. On HP laptops, like all Windows laptops, you can reset a user account's password using another Administrator account on the device. It is possible to have multiple administrator account setup on your HP laptop and if you have access to any one of these accounts, then by using Command Prompt, you will be able to reset the password for the desired account. To do this, you will need to login to the admin account that you have access to.
Go to Start Menu and search for the Control Panel after you enter another admin account on your computer.
Once you open the window of Control Panel, choose User Accounts.
Click Manage another account.
Now you can see all the account of your Windows. You can choose the locked account and change the password by following the on-screen guide.
This method is only useful if you have access to another administrator account on that laptop, which may not always be the case. However with WinSenior, you are allowed to reset the password on your HP laptop, regardless of if you have access to an administrator account or not.
Method 3: Contact Local HP Store
If you have been unsuccessful in completing the other steps and your user account is still locked, you will need to contact an HP store near you. Depending on your location, you might have an HP store quite close to you. You could contact this store by either visiting the store in person and taking your laptop with you, by phoning up the store and asking to speak with a technician or via email, although this might take a while so it is recommended that you phone the store.
The local store will be able to help you reset your user's account. If you are unable to reset the password, then the store may reset the password for you however you may need to show proof of purchase and proof of ownership to prevent unauthorized access. An HP technician will be able to reset your account and they will tell you any of the consequences of having your account reset, such as losing your data. You will also not have access to the laptop until the password has been reset.
The best way for you to reset a forgotten password on a HP laptop without disk is by using the Passper WinSenior program because it is easy, safe and quick to use. If you have any questions about the program or any other methods, please leave us a message and we will try to help you.
