XE700T1C: What to do if the windows login password was forgotten (Windows 8)?

Last Update date : 2017.09.20

Important: For your protection these safeguards were put in place by Microsoft. If these safeguards did not exist, anyone could reset the password to your computer and gain access to your private information.

Yes you can reset your Windows password using your Windows Password Reset Disk.


If you have forgotten your Windows Login Password, and you have not created a Password Reset Disk, you must login using your Administrator account to assign a new user password.


If you have forgotten your Administrator password, and you have not created a Password Reset Disk, unless you have another Administrator account, you will need to reinstall Windows. If you have a second Administrator account, you must log in to this account to assign a new user password.

Note: Samsung Recovery Solution (SRS) will remove all user accounts if you perform a "Complete Restore". However, depending on the version of Samsung Recovery Solution this does not remove the initial Administrator Account, so if you have forgotten the Administrator Account password, SRS will not benefit you.
