    Hi

    I assume you are talking about windows system password and not about BIOS password. Right?
    It’s not very big problem if you forgotten the System password but if you mean BIOS password then you are in trouble because the BIOS password can be deleted just by an Toshiba ASP technicians…

    So I assume you mean Windows password… so start the notebook and press F8
    Now you can choose Repair my Computer and then choose HDD recovery.
    This would start a HDD recovery procedure which would reinstall the system… during the setup you can set anther admin password.

    Of course there are some other methods but as far as I know this requires 3rd party software/tools or Win 7 DVD… so I think the HDD recovery is the fastest solution.

    Forgot your admin password? Don't worry! Since you don't have a password reset disk, I think the fastest and easiest way is to make use of a third-party tool. You can also try to re-install your system, if there isn't much data in your nephew's PC.

    For most second-hand computer, most people will meet this problem. I think you can choose two tools to unlock your computer, Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

    Take it easy! You mean login password?
    You can try your password hints or password reset disk firstly if any. Besides, you can try third-party software like Ophcrack. If you reentered your system, try to make a password reset disk first of all.

    Very simple, you can create a password reset disk with USB /CD/DVD

    Either you can create a new user account or you can reset your password using CMD in windows. So follow the steps


    You need to insert your Windows 10 formatting DVD/CD to your PC or laptop. One thing you need to remember before inserting disc, Disable UEFI, and secure boot process.
    Now open the command prompt from the start menu.
    Now replace the utilman.exe with the cmd.exe, and then reinsert your CD disc to your system.
    Now at the screen, you will go to the Windows 10 Sign-in, now at that page click on the Utility manager icon. You will get the icon at the bottom left.
    If you have implemented each step carefully then your Command prompt will start
    Now type the command to create a new user account and further add that account to the local group.
    Net user/add


    Net Local group administrators/add


    Now get back to the Log-in page, now you will see the new user account which you have created. You can log in with your new account without any password.
