check the type of the hash algorithm md5, sha etc... if the algorithm is old there may exist some techniques to crack it(birthday attack or something) or the hash is already cracked and listed in some password lists. If you have a list of possible passwords, you can hash each one of them and verify against the one you have using a tool like hashcat.
