You didn't say what OS you are using.

1.To try and remove the password protection you can power off the PC.
remove the side panel and then remove the battery. Leave it for 10 minutes, refit the battery and then power up the PC. The password protection may have been removed.

2. Or at start up, enter the bios settings. You may be able to disable the password from within the settings.

3. If you're not bothered which OS you use, try a new install of XP or Windows 7.

If you don't have XP or Windows 7, ask a friend to download linux and burn it onto a dvd for you(or put it onto a usb flash drive). Put the linux dvd into your dvd drive and restart the computer. You will have the choice of completely erasing Windows, or installing Linux alongside Windows.

Linux is free. It will do everything Windows can do. Linux comes with its own version of 'Office'. The best free versions of Linux are Ubuntu or 'Mint'.

You can download Ubuntu here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Webcams do NOT work in Linux. Apart from that, Linux will do everything Windows can do (but free!) and you won't ever get a virus.

Depending on the Windows version is installed:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the password (there are several programs you can use there NTPWD, Offline NT Password Changer 2010-06-27, or Password Renew 1.1). Here's the link http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

SOURCE: drivers installed right, but no digtial audio

Could it be the motherboard?
Yes.

Could it be that it is the wrong drivers?
Or the right drivers, and installation did not actually occur?
Yes.

If it is the motherboard's integrated audio chipset is bad, simply obtain, and use a sound card in the appropriate expansion slot on the motherboard.
An open PCI slot. (White in color)

[NOTE* That is PCI-Express x1.
Not PCI-Express x16 slot. This slot is reserved for a graphics card.

According to Sony eSupport the PCV 7762 model is actually the PCV-RX850

1) Did you install this audio driver?

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVRX850

Yamaha YMF753 Audio Driver Utility?
(Has the audio driver in it)

2) You downloaded the file to your computer (My Documents, or Downloads, perhaps?), and then double-clicked on the file name - YA31520801JG.EXE, then followed the simple instructions of the Installation Wizard?

[Simply, Next, Next, and Finish]

3) You then restarted the computer?

4) Are you sure the audio is turned on, and not muted? (Speaker icon in system tray, or go to Control Panel)

5) Sound system is plugged in correctly to the back of the computer? (Motherboard)

6) Sound system has power to it if required?

7) Still using the Windows XP O/S that came with the computer?

One example of a PCI soundcard,

How do I change admistraitor and password on computer I bought at thrift store so I can be administraitor


Forget about changing the password. You will need to re-install the OS. Otherwise, you will not hack into it. When the password is at the boot level, then we can remove the jumper on the motherboard to reset it but, not in the operating system itself.

Sony PCV-7762 Service manual


First of all, the Sony Vaio desktop case is like trying to open Fort Knox. It is quite well built, but hardly gives any clues about how to open it to work on it inside. Here's a link that specifically addresses this situation:

Does the anti virus on my desktop cover my wireless laptop connection


Yes if it has a firewall function. However, most operating systems have a firewall feature built in anyway so all you need is a good anti-virus anyway.
