Well, you can try this:
Assuming you have XP on it, start it in safe mode.
Now log on as administrator.
Most times, computers have been set up with passwords, but the user has forgotten to password protect the administrator account.

Got locked out of my laptop its asking for a password & i have never had one


The person who owned it before you has probably put a bios password in the computer locking you out. I strongly recommend you take it back to the pawn shop and get your money back, or the seller gets a hold of the customer to get the required information, because without it the laptop is useless to you.

Hey my gf bought a laptop from a pawn shop and it has a password on it she took it back and they sait too bad what can we do to crack it


If it's "New to You" then you won't need a password. Put a disc in with the same OS that's on it and boot from the Windows CD. Then just reinstall Windows and use the key that's on the label on the bottom of the laptop when it asks for it. There's a way to "Break" into Windows, but I cannot post it, for that would violate the law if it were a stolen laptop and you really were looking to break into someones files. The passwords are there for a reason. I suggest you make it your own with a Legitimate copy of Windows (or whatever OS you choose). If it's in a pawn shop, the data is probably all messed up anyways and will need to be re-installed.

Just bought a Eee PC 1000HA from a pawn shop, and when I charged it and turned it on, it goes to a bios screen that says at the bottom that the hard disk is locked. It ask's for user password or press ESC...


When buying things from a pawn shop, it is wise to check it out to see if it functions properly before you purchase it.
Hard disk passwords cannot be broken/hacked, and putting a new hard disk in the laptop may not work, this depends upon the BIOS password setup.
I suggest you try and return it and get a refund.
