I searched but could not find what I needed.

I have bitlocker on old computer and remember the password fine. I can't remember my windows password.

I can;t figure out how to unlock windows and change the password,

I think bitlocker is getting in the way

When I get into a command window and try to unlock the volume and remove bitlocker so I can reset windows, I enter the password there and it says its not correct.

Protectors says I have numerical (which i recovered) and a pin+ but I do not have that, Anything I can do?

Its an old computer nothing on it so wiping it clean and re-installing windows woudl be fine by me which is what I was planning nto do to give it to a friend that needs one

Obtain an ISO of whatever OS you have. WIN7 Home 64bit get the WIn7 Home 64bit ISO. Burn this ISO to a usb or dvd using rufus. Use minitool partition wizard to format the drive. Boot from made USB/DVD and clean install OS.

That should work for you.
