Have you gone through either of these procedures?

It’s unlikely that your drive is encrypted, so you should also have the option of removing the storage drive, connecting it to another computer and accessing the files that way. At least you would have the option of backing them up (and keeping backups in the future) if you end up having to reinstall the OS.

I dont have windows install disc but I tried going to link for password reset but cant seem to find the actual link that downloads the software

Which software? Do you mean the software to create the boot disk?

If you don’t have install disk, you should follow the 2nd tutorial suggested by @larrylmitchell and download Offline NT Password & Registry Editor:

When your hard drive is encrypted with BitLocker, any Windows password recovery/reset methods won’t work.
Then you can pull the drive and attach it to another PC, and decrypt it with your BitLocker recovery key:

One decrypted, remove the drive and plug it back to its original PC and Offline NT Password & Registry Editor should work now.
