Access error on PhpMyAdmin

My laptop broke down, I recovered the data from the old HDD and I saved them on the new one. Now I tried to reinstall Wamp64 and all seems fine. When I try to log in PhpMyAdmin comes out an error that says the password is incorrect but I am sure it is correct, also because I have it written down other than saved on my Google account.

What can the issue be?
What can I try to do to make it work?

I reinstalled the local server directly from the files I recovered and I have all the folders as they were before on the other laptop (I didn't lose any of them).

Did someone have the same issue? How did you solve it?

As mentioned in the explanations displayed at the end of the Wampserer installation, as well as in the instructions_for_use.pdf file, there is no password for PhpMyAdmin access.
Since you have just reinstalled Wampserver there is no password, so you must leave the Password field empty.
