    Lost or forgot your Windows 8.1 password, and don't know how to reset it. Take it easy, there is a simple guide to teach you how to reset it quickly. Search Windows Password Key to learn more.

    BIOS shouldn't have anything to do with the OS Password, depending on the type of BIOS (UEFI) you may be able to change the BIOS password from the OS tho.

    What type of account did you use? If you use a local account, you can remove the password by booting your computer with PCUnlocker Live CD. While you can go to Microsoft online webpage to reset your password if you use a Microsoft account.
