I have windows vista i had unistalled some things that i didnt need. Now my computer is askin me for another user account to sign in and it wont let me do nothing at all. Why? What can i do its locked

2 Things are important here.
  1. When u uninstalled certain items u might have been on an account which had administrative privileges.So check how many user accounts your computer has.Try Using an Account which has administrative privileges.
  2. Another is u might have logged off from your main Account and that might be the reason your computer is asking u to sign in.If so,do sign in with ur password and u may be able to access your PC normally.In that case this has nothing to do with the programs u have uninstalled.

I got this used for christmas and when i went to install my dsl on the system it locked me out and asked for the password of the previous owner how can I log back in and get rid of that

First hit f 8 just as the windows window comes up. Hopefully he did not set an Administator password.Otherwise you need his password or you will have to reinstall operating system. If you get in as Admin change other passwords

Coumpter will not come's says can't find hardrive

Most of the time when it says that it means that the hard drive has died. Download seatools from website  and use that software, or simular, to check your hard drive. Your windows does not have to work to use it. It has it's own OS.
