    I have a HP laptop that is running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. It has an user account with limited rights - where I can login and the Administrator account for which i forgot the password. Both accounts are local and the computer doesn't belong to a domain.

    Is there any possible way that can reset my forgotten Windows 7 password, I have a pre-created password reset disk.

    Welcome to the forum

    You are asking a question that doesn't really have a place on this forum as it is a forum for Surface devices with Windows 8.x or Windows 10. I;m going to move this to off-topic and hope someone can provide an answer but based on my experience you are in a real pickle from what you have explained.

    There are a number of Password Reset/Recovery utilities available that you run from a bootable disk/USB.
    Search for Password Reset Utility windows 7 or Password Recovery ...
    Some are Free.

    Boot off Windows 7 install DVD and follow this trick to reset your password:
    Reset Windows 8/7 Password without Any Reset Disk

    If it doesn't work, you can use one of the following softwares:
    • Ophcrack
    • PCUnlocker
    • Offline NT Password & Registry Editor
    • Kon-Boot
    • PCLoginNow
    • Elcomsoft
    • Hiren’s Boot CD
    When all of these methods or tools don't work, the only option is to perform a clean install of Windows.
