Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
I just got this brand new computer for my birthday and i turn it on and it says that i need to provide a password for the user name john preto (have no idea who that is) and there is a password hint of marvelous how to i get past it or change it with out having a password reset disk
The following link will take you to a cd image to make a bootable CD which when run loads a linux based utility that allows you to reset any local user passwords.
I have used this when the local admin account has been disabled as well on a PC. I have found it best to set the password to be blank rather than using it to define a known password. Once ou are in windows you can then create your own User account and then delete the one on it.
Also try pressing Control + Alt + Delete twice and see if it drops back to the classic login screen and change the user to Administrator with no password.
