Asus Laptop Forgot Password on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1

I got Asus Transformer Book Trio a month ago, which can be used as laptop, PC and tablet. During the transfer from PC or tablet to laptop, I found Asus Windows 8 login password forgotten. How can I do to solve this problem with any powerful methods?

Solution 1:
Password hint may be the direct way for you to think of forgotten Asus password on Windows 8, if password hint has set for user password. 

Solution 2:
However, if you couldn't guess forgotten password out, there are still other choices you can choose on logon screen to access Windows 8 first and then reset Asus Windows 8 forgotten password. For example, PIN code and Picture password could be used to login Windows 8 computer. Or if you have password reset disk available, click "Reset Password" button to follow Windows 8 password reset wizard.

But if you have no reset disk, or other logon ways are not created, how do you reset Windows 8 password? Actually it has become a topic about how to create a Windows 8/8.1 password reset disk.

Solution 3:
At this moment, we could choose a tool to burn a password reset disk when computer is locked. Ophcrack is one of free password recovery tools, but is it a pity that it couldn't promise to recover Windows 8 password. Offline NT and Registry Editor is the same. So now I try to use Windows Password Genius Advanced.

Step 1: Install Windows Password Genius Advanced on available computer.
Note: If you have a Mac or Android phone instead, you can also create a password reset disk by them.

Step 2: Plug prepared USB drive into available computer and run password recovery software.
USB drive should be bootable and empty. So if you have something in this USB, back up it first.

Step 3: Choose USB as password reset disk burning media, and then click “Begin burning”. When you see message prompt you burning successfully, exit USB and get ready to reset Windows 8 password.

Step 4: Start Asus Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 laptop, when vendor logo appears on screen, press ESC repeatedly until Boot Option Menu appears. When Boot Option Menu appears, choose USB drive to boot your computer.

Step 5: When Asus laptop boots from USB successfully, you will see Windows system and all users on Windows password recovery program screen, choose Windows system – Windows 8 and select user you forgotten password or administrator. And click “Reset Password” to remove forgotten password.

Step 6: At last, reboot Windows 8 laptop is necessary after remove Windows 8 password if you want to access Windows 8 without password. But just remember, exit USB drive from Asus laptop before Asus computer boots up.

You could find Windows 8 password reset with reset disk or password recovery tool is similar, because they are based on password reset disk. The truth we remove Windows 8 password is editing registry file. So we had better create one password reset disk when we could access computer, not limited to laptop, PC with Windows 8 or 8.1.
