Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If your password is short and simple, you can recover it with Ophcrack Live CD but it may take a long time out of your expect. I suggest you removing the password using PCUnlocker Live CD (it can also boot from a USB stick) and it is instant.

    How did you forget password. For which password you asked for either it is  general user/ admin password. Did you still login as a general user/ without admin rights. Passwords are for security reason. There are several tricks, but all not works all time. If possible, please provide more details.

    Are we talking Windows or power on password? There are ways of getting around this but they can be a little trick. With out knowing if you are the true owner of this PC we would be giving you access to someone's stuff. You could take it to a local shop. Is this a new PC?
    If there is nothing else on it you may be able to do a system restore.

    It is a new HP Notebook model 15-ay065nr. I purchased it at Staples in Winter Haven, FL on Nov 25, 2016 which was Black Friday. I keep a record of all my passwords as they are accepted, but for some reason this one time doesn't work. The only thing I can do is turn it on or off.

    @mogrov: It's unfortunate this type of question is asked over and over. Because we cannot verify you are the actual owner, most will not feel comfortable telling you how to break in. You best bet is to take it to a PC repair shop. They have the right tools and can do it correctly without loss of data.

    If this is under warranty, better to carry to an authorized service center of the same vendor and asked them for help.
