HP SimplePass requires me to reconfirm my Windows password before I can get access to my laptop. I cannot remember this password. Where will I find this or reset it?

HP have recommended two ways to deal with this:

I believe you will have to use the first option since you don't have access to the system to tweak the settings.

Go to programs and open hp simple pass app and select forget password it will ask security question set by user(you), answer it then create a new one.

Go to device manager (or) control panel and uninstall program from programs and features
and reinstall it.

I can't get into my computer as it want simplePass. I have a small pass word of four numbers that I used on a small screen which opened my laptop but now after putting the four number it does not open but lead me to a simplepass screen to enter new password and confirm new password. All that I have tried it says simplePass could not validate password
