If you reset the computer to factory default, you will lose everything on it that you haven't already backed up.
Unfortunately we cannot assist with topics along the lines of "I've lost my password", as while they may be totally legitimate, we can't verify that's the case.

The only solution we can offer is to reset the computer. In most cases you do this by pressing F10, F11 on the logo screen and follow the on-screen instructions. If you're lucky you'll get an option to save some data, but that's not guaranteed depending on the make of the computer.
