What is the model number? Many of the HP pavilions had a built in Recovery Partition you can use to restore to factory state from. With the model number we can find the manual and see what it says about that.

Hie, before you logo on the Guest account, Press the Ctrl + ALT DEl Keys. A window will appear in which you have to write "Administrator" along the User, leave the password blank and Click Ok. Once in the system go to your account management window and remove the problematic password.

Good lucky
