I need help guys.
I recently bought HP pavilion g6 laptop with windows 8 installed.
I have forgotten the admin password, and I don't have a recovery disk. currently I am using the guest account.
please tell me a way of unlocking the admin account.
I don't know much about computers, so a full, comprehensive, step by step guide will be appreciated

As Wolf' stated we can't fully support you on reseting it. . . However if you use a Microsoft account, you can reset it online and have the password sent to the email on your account profile. Now if you used a local account though, you will need to bring the pc to a local computer shop or seak help else where (as the Terms of Use states we cant).

PS: Sorry for any typos, as this was written from my cell phone.
