Forgot Windows 8.1 login password

Forgot Windows 8.1 login password

suddenly can't remember the login password for my old laptop. It is used to be a code hub for previous projects. I tried Kon Boot and Ntpasswd but with no avail. Anyone in here know how to remove or reset the password without damaging the computer? thanks

As long as you can access the Startup Repair, you can reset your lost windows password with this backdoor:

No CD or USB drive is required. I have ever tested this method on Windows 7 and it worked flawlessly. But I don't have a Windows 8 PC to check if it also works.

If you can't access the windows .. use a boot (Windows 8.1) DVD then access the command prompt .. and follow this method

The startup repair won't work on Windows 8.1. And I got an error message saying 'table not found ' via using ophcrack.

There are many free and paid software can help reset windows 8 password like NTPasswd, Ophcrack, UUkeys windows password recovery.

For using NTpassword.

First go to the official website of NTPasswd and grab a copy of the bootable CD image. To install NTPasswd onto a blank CD, Right-click on the ISO file and then click “Burn disc image” option. If your system doesn’t have built-in support for burning, you can take use of the free burning tool ISO2Disc. 

When the bootable NTPasswd CD is ready, it’s time to reset your lost Windows password. Insert the CD into the optical drive and restart the target computer. You might have to adjust the BIOS to allow booting from the CD.

For using UUkeys windows password recovery.

Prepare a USB flash drive for making a bootable USB reset disk, then insert this USB to your locked windows 8.

Good job Jiou

That's always good to know.

Thanks!

There are many ways you can do: 

1. Reset your PC.

The Reset Your PC process in Windows 8 is very different than just resetting your password. This process removes all of your installed programs, apps, and even all of your saved data.

2. Reset your password with MS online site.

3. Reset your windows 8 password with pre-created DVD reset disc.

4. Reset your windows password some tools like iSeePassword windows password recovery Pro, ophcrack.

Want to remove your password altogether? There’s another live CD for that: Offline NT Password And Registry Editor (clever name, right?) Also available as a live CD, this simple tool allows you to completely remove the password for any account on any system up to Windows 7. All you need to do after that is log in, but be sure to set a new password – you don’t want to leave your system insecure.

It happens. When you don't use old computer, you forget your password.

If your account associated with your windows is linked with microsoft account, you can reset your password online. Click on reset your password, you will get an email with password change instruction. Try it.

The post was too old and no longer works after  new update pushed to Windows 8.1. I just unlocked a Windows 8.1 laptop with Androidphonesoft Windows Password Recovery and it works quite faster. Hope this helps!

Using Microsoft account is a good idea ,because the feel tools as the Kon Boot and Ntpasswd (Ophacker ), Most of the time, they don't work for Windows computer.

Appreciated for the input, @Smith. It worked well on my Windows 8.1 laptop. Sadly I have running Ophcrack for 3 days and still not recovering the password. 

It happens sometimes when you get it after a long time. If you are facing this issue then you can simply go for the password recovery process. You can visit https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/14105/windows-8-what-to-do-if-f...
