    You may be just lying. We don't know if the PC was stolen or if you are a hacker. Therefore forum rules dictate that we don't help in bypassing security. You can re-install Windows.

    We don't provide help here with a password-protected computer because we have no way to confirm how you obtained it and why you're wanting to gain access to it.

    When you turn it on, it should give you the option to do a factory restore/system recovery and reset it back to its original new condition.
