How to Reset Lost Windows 8 Password on Sony Vaio Laptop and Tablet

If you forgot your Windows 8 password on your Sony Vaio laptop or tablet, don't worry. There are a few ways to reset it.

If you have a Microsoft account, you can reset your password by going to the Microsoft account password reset page. You'll need to enter your email address, phone number, or Skype ID, and then follow the instructions.

If you don't have a Microsoft account, you can still reset your password, but you'll need to use a third-party tool like Kon-Boot. Kon-Boot is a program that allows you to login to your computer without a password.

Once you download and install Kon-Boot, simply restart your computer and select the "Kon-Boot" option when the boot menu appears. Kon-Boot will then bypass the Windows 8 password and allow you to login.

If you don't want to use a third-party tool, you can also reset your password by using a Windows 8 installation disc. To do this, insert the disc into your computer and boot from it.

When the Windows 8 setup screen appears, select "Repair your computer."

Then select "Troubleshoot," and then "Advanced options."

Finally, select "Command Prompt."

At the command prompt, type the following commands:

cd C:\Windows\System32\utilman.exe

copy cmd.exe utilman.exe

This will replace the utilman.exe file with the cmd.exe file, which will allow you to access the command prompt at the login screen.

Reboot your computer and select the "Ease of Access" icon at the login screen. This will launch the command prompt.

At the command prompt, type the following command to reset your password:

net user

Replace with your username and with your new password.

Reboot your computer and you should now be able to login with your new password.
