Default Computer Lock

I have a password that I have to enter to get into my HP Pavillion g71260us Notebook.

How can I take it out? Thanks have to bring it in for repair and don't want them to have it.

Been a while since I used Windows but I believe you go in to control panel/users and click on your account, then click change password. It will prompt you to enter your current password and then your new one. Don't enter a new password and click OK. Or you can change it to something like 1,2,3.

Now if you want them to be able to use it without access to your files you can create a new account and let them log on to it instead of your account. They will have access to the computer but not your files.

Yes, that's how.
