    The uTube video explains the method, step by step.

    Download the demo version of Ubuntu, burn the desktop Ubuntu to a DVD.
    Boot up your laptop and change the Boot order from HD drive to DVD drive.
    Power down, insert the DVD and boot up from the DVD, this will run Ubuntu from the DVD.
    Then follow the uTube instructions for accessing the Win/Sys files and creating/modifying the Win password.
    When done, remove the DVD from the laptop and reboot, this should allow your new Win password.
    OK.?

    If he holds the esc key he maybe fix it without booting anything seeing windows 8 and up Microsoft keeps a copy of your password
