    Hello Risingflight, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Is his account a local or Microsoft account?

    If Microsoft account, then he could just use step 2 and 5 in Option Two of the tutorial below to reset his Microsoft account password online at Microsoft. Afterwards, he'll be able to sign in to his PC with the new password.
    Hope this may help,
