    I have an old laptop that used to be a backup machine. Yesterday my main working computer was broken and need to use the backup machine. However, I can't remember the login password (seems changed it since upgraded to Windows 10). Any way to unlock the computer without data loss?

    Without a recovery disk, do you have another account that can log in that computer ? (computer in a domain?)
    Usually their is the standard admin account, and the user account used on the computer.


    You can also use the HDD from another computer to make a backup, and re-install it in the correct computer, and re-install Windows on it.

    If you think this is a trouble, try some free windows password reset tools like ntpassword, uukeys, ophrack and more...

    you should prepare an USB or DVD and a working computer to burn a password reset disk.

    Besides the admin account, there is only another guest account on that computer. I will go for the second suggestion and see which one works. thank u

    P.S Tried two of them and UUkeys seems better for newbies. I followed this tutorial and made a password reset disk. The process is really simple.
