“I forgot password on my newly bought Samsung ATIV 9 Plus laptop with Windows 8.1 preinstalled, what can I do? Is there any way to reset password? I don’t want to do any system installation or factory reset, it’s time-consuming.”

Step 1: Prepare a flash drive and one computer
You will need to make a password-reset disk on a USB flash drive and this requires a computer. As you’ve forgotten password and can’t get into your own Samsung laptop, you need to borrow another available computer.

2. Click on USB device.
3. Insert your USB flash drive into the computer. Select your USB drive name from the drop-down and then click on Begin burning. Format the USB drive when asked.
4. When burning successfully, close the program and take out the USB flash drive.
Step 3: Boot Samsung laptop from USB device
Connect the password-reset USB drive into your password forgotten Samsung laptop. Start laptop and access its UEFI (BIOS) to disable Secure Boot first and set your laptop to boot from USB device.
Step 4: Reset Windows 8.1 password on Samsung laptop
1. While laptop booting up, Windows PE will load and Windows Password Refixer screen will display.
2. Select Windows 8.1 running on your Samsung laptop. Select your password-forgotten user. Then click on Reset Password.
3. Reset password to blank when asked.
4. Click on Reboot and exit the password-reset USB drive when prompted. Then your Samsung laptop will restart normally, and Windows 8.1 can login without password.
