Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am glad to assist you today.

Can you please tell me the exact model of your HP laptop? (Like HP Pavilion DV2350)
Also, is your Windows 8 account a local account or a Microsoft account? I am asking because in Windows 8, you can use a local account if you do not have a Microsoft ID. But you can also login using a Microsoft ID like Hotmail or MSN.

Please let me know so that I can help you further.

Best regards,
Jess

Hi Ray,

Thank you for writing back. One way to regain access to your laptop is to perform a factory restore. This will rebuild the computer into its out-of-the-box state. However, this process will wipe out all of your personal file.

Do you want to do a factory restore?

Please let me know.

Regards,
Jess

|I will try the factory restore . Thanks

Expert:  Jess M. replied 3 years ago.

Ray,

Yes, if you have not created a lot of files like Microsoft Word or Excel files there, then you can rebuild the laptop by doing a Factory Restore. This will make your laptop work like new in its out-of-the-box state.

For the steps to perform a factory restore, please click on this HP guide:

If you can't get to the restore screen, do these steps:

  1. Turn on HP laptp
  2. Press F11
  3. Select Keyboard Layout
  4. Click Troubleshoot
  5. In the Troubleshoot screen, select "Reset your PC"
  6. Then follow the on screen procedures to restore to factory settings.

 

I hope that helped.
