Re: Laptop password reset windows 8

The only option that we have is to perform a System Recovery which will wipe out the Hard Drive and reinstall the OS back to factory condition.  This mean you will lose all software and data.

 

 

1) Turn off the PC completely

2) Press the Assist button (Physicall button on your VAIO PC)

3) Follow the on  screen prompt and select Restore C: Drive

cwoessner,

Performa Restore C: Drive will bring the PC back to factory condition. The Original Operating System with the software that was preinstall by Sony will be all reinstalled.

Let me know if that make sense.

If you want to do password reset Windows 8 you can first use the reset disk. If you have no one you can also buy one or download the free reset program, Offline NT Password & Registry Editor, which can help you delete your former password and create a new one.
