Lost Unlock Password

Hi there, 
I'm reinstalling my laptop to clean things up and it's asking me for an Unlock Password(Key: 86083829)

I know I set a password, but I can't remember what it was. Is there any way I can recover the password, or reset the laptop completely?

Kind regards

    Shut down the unit, Than press the power button as soon as you press the power button press and hold the "Alt " down and tap on the "F10" repeatedly until it takes to a screen where it gives on option of "Troubleshoot" .
    So press troubleshoot>remove all files>fully clean the drive and click reset. After an hour or two the unit will go back to default setting removing all password.

    Thanks for this Jack, but I nuked the recovery partition when I reinstalled it. A bit silly of me. Any other ideas?
