I have a problem with my HP G60 Laptop where a long time ago it had its screen messed up and now I am trying to get the data off the hard drives but I cannot logon to my windows account because I forgot the pass word and so I searched a little bit and found out by running in safe mode I can change the account. Whenever I hook it up to the external monitor and turn on the laptop, I press f8 and also the fn + f4 keys to switch the display to the monitor but it'll only work when windows it already booting to the login screen I cannot see the f8 options. I would really like to retrieve my data off instead of resetting the operating system. If anyone knows how to reset a windows login password without a password reset disk or thru safe boot please tell me in detailed steps. I would appreciate it.
