It depends upon what password is set.


Firmware system board passwords require entry of the password before the operating system will even start to boot.  Two passwords can be set, an administrator password and a user password is set.  IF both passwords are set, the administrator after correctly entering the password can make the user password changehttps://wiki.debian.org/SecureBootable.  If the administrator password is the only one set, replacement of the system board is the only correction. (Then the passwords on the new system board can be set or left open as desired by system administrator and user.)


System disk and data disk passwords also appear early in the booting process, before the operating system will start.  There are quite a few different schemes, so correct entry of the password is the only universal way to access an encrypted disk.  Your system administrator might know a way to enter an administrative level password.  Sometimes the disk must be replaced, usually system installation programs can re-partition and re-format the disk to allow reinstallation of the system.  All data on the disk is erased by the reinstallation process.  Specialized forensic services available from third party specialists have variable success recovering data from password protected system drives.  Windows calls this the "bitlocker" password.  If prearrangements are made, Windows can provide a key, check windows knowledge base for how to find your bitlocker key.  


Your operating system has two key system, a username and user password.  IF more than one user is authorized already, especially for Windows, the other user can help you regain access.  Some operating systems establish a "super user" whom has access to everything.  Correct entry of the superuser password is required.  Check windows knowledge base for how to reset a user password.  Prior registrations are required.  Complete reinstallation of Windows operating system will restore access to the machine, but all user data will be erased.  Sometimes a system administrator/superuser can recreate a new user (adduser) with your exact same username and provide access to everything again with your new password.  If your personal data is backed up on external media or the cloud, often your data can be restored from the backup.


Lastly individual applications like word processors, spreadsheets have various levels of password capability.  Details vary, correct entry of a password is needed to access the information.  Check with your system administrator, it might be possible to recover a version of the file stored before the password was set.  Enterprise level system administrators have a log of every keystroke and mouseclick made from the beginning of time, regardless of whether or not the information was saved.  It is a lot of work to extract that log, your bosses bosses boss may need to be involved... 


Good Luck!
