  • Locked out of my Windows 8, how can I do?

    I open my old Dell laptop and when on logon screen, I suddenly couldn’t think of password I have ever set. Now, I am locked out of Windows 8. Is there any way to reset Win 8 administrator password for me? It is my only account for computer and no password reset disk available.Thanks!

    AFAIK the Peter Nordahl password disk is still the best - check the Forgot Password forum and there should be info about it

      I tried many free and paid software but not work, ntpassword, opchrack, and paid software like iSeepassword, but not work, so, need future help!

        Doesn't matter really. Have you tried the Peter Nordahl password reset disk? Its never failed to work for me.

        However if you have logged on with a Microsoft account then you will need to reset that password.

          Does Peter Nordahl password reset disk work on UEFI based computers?

            Don't know. Haven't tried it.
