Assuming the operating system is pre-installed you shouldn't have any problems if you've used a desktop before, the only real difference is the power considerations.

The anti-virus cd should walk you through the necessary instructions to install it. You should do that before you do anything else.

If you come across any problems post them on here and I'll be happy to help out.

Its pretty easy to set up just make sure that before you go online you install an antivirus and firewall . I would reccomend http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html for antivirus its free and for a firewall I would recommend http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,7228-order,1-page,1-c,firewalls/description.html . Both are free and easy to setup

My daughter received a computer after her aunt passed. It's loaded with Windows Vista Home Premium. No discs were with the tower, and her aunt's windows log-on comes up... No clue what the password is....


try to boot up in safe mode, keep pressing f8 till a menu appears and use the arrow keys to select safe mode. Then press enter. Once the windows login screen appears choose Administrator to log in. Then click the start menu button (the microsoft flag button) in the bottom left of the screen and click control panel, choose user accounts, then choose add or remove user accounts. Click yes to allow , then click on your daughters aunts account and click remove password. Now restart the pc and you will not have to enter a password.

If you dont have the administrator account to log into you will have to reply with the exact make and model of computer as you may have a recovery partition to restore the pc back to how it was when it was first purchased

I Have HP Compac c301 laptop I forgot my Password how to log in to my laptop


You can always log in as the root administrator by pressing ctrl+alt+del on after you've reached the logon screen. Key in the user name as "administrator" and the password. Hope the password is blank.

Once you are logged in as administrator, you can reset your account's password using the User Accounts in Control Panel.

replacing the mobo is much cheaper that to purchase a new computer but purchasing a new computer is much better than replacing your mobo. because in the near future, you need to upgrade your system for better use.

If I am correct you enter the passwords as new first person.
If this is the case, don't for get what you/aunt use as your access name/password?
So when you turn on next time, you /aunt uses the details entered? Just remember details, incase I am right.

  1. turn on the computer that has the printer attached.
  2. configure computer to share (start/settings/printer-faxes/right click on default printer/select sharing tab/ select share this printer/ apply settings/OK)(This computer must also be connected to the router so your laptop will see it as a network device)
  3. on wireless laptop, add printer
  4. when prompted select network printer.

For my wifes ease of use I purchased for $20.00 network magic which auto configured all my devices and monitored any access to my wireless router so I could choose who could access my open router.

Can I connect a mini plug DIGITAL audio source into these?


Hello bobbobbob, These speakers would work great. First question is: Do you already own these speakers, or would you be buying them? If you already own them, then yes, use them, if not, a more economical solution would be the Bose Companion 2 speakers here: http://www.bose.com/controller?event=VIEW_PRODUCT_PAGE_EVENT&product=companion2_multimedia_index These are about half the price, and have exceptional clarity for someone like your aunt. They also will allow her flat panel TV to plug and play very easily. Please let us know if you need any additional information. Best regards and kudos for helping your aunt out! nightdiver
