Buying Used Pc but cannot get pass password

I have been offered a Pc , along with a monitor,desktop, photocopier, printer and chair for £25 but the trouble is the person selling it has not got any books for it on how to set it up, and he has forgot the password which comes on as soon as it loads and I cannot get past this first page. There is also no disc for it, it is I am told on windows xp. The first page displays warning cpu has been changed please re-enter cpu settings in the cmos set up and save before quit.

FYI, I know this is an old posting but you don't have to go to Dell Tech Support for password reset, just reset the CMOS password jumpers inside the computer. Not a difficult task at all, refer to the owner's manual for details on opening the computer, and for resetting the jumpers. Very easy solution, had to do it myself. Manuals for locating jumpers usually can be found online. Good luck.

How do I change the touch screen keyboard to a wireless


Your printer should connect up to any USB port (small rectangular opening near where the monitor and keyboard plug in (same type of opening). If your printer is so old it has a cream colored cable and one end that has 25 pins sticking out of it, you will save money by just buying a new $30 printer. Anyhow, newer printers connect with a thinner cable like your mouse cable, is flat / rectangular on one end, and is kind of tall-igloo shaped on the other end.

If you go for the new printer, I used to hate Epson, but bought one December 2013, and it uses a lot less ink than my older Canon or HP printer. I bought one with a touch screen panel and it can print from my smart phone and all the PCs without connecting any wires. The one I bought was about $100.

Your PC has a very new wired connection (Gigabit LAN) for your home network; but unfortunately does not come with a built in wireless card. If you are also unfamiliar with the LAN cable, it is an RJ45 connector. Looks just like a phone cable, but 50% wider.

If this is unclear, feel free to add more detail or let me know what you need more clarification on.

All the best to you,
Kerry

Is the power light staying on or does that go out as well?
If the power light stays on and if you darken the room, can you see a faint image still on the screen by shining a flashlight at it (close). If there is a faint image it is either the inverter or the backlight tube.

I'm having a heck of a time finding that at Staples.com ... although general searches found stuff about it. Mmmmm do they still offer it for sale?

What's the support like for it? Who really makes it? Because I don't think Staples the office supply company makes computer monitors.

Get him a nice Apple monitor from where you're getting the computer - and have them show that it works. That's my suggestion. (Now I'm saying things backwards like Yoda on Star Wars :-)

You're right. There is probably debris on the glass where the paper passes through. It's a common problem. You'll have to raise up the scanner so that you can see the glass. Then clean it off and you're back on business.

Needing to hook up my scanner


You are going to need a 25 way cable a "Printer" type cable, A Male to Male, BUT with ALL 25 pins wired thru pin To Pin. This plugs straight into the "Printer" port. These machines often have a "Pass Through" port on them so ya can also connect to a Printer, however if ya printer is USB then it's NOT used. I found drivers below. http://www.opendrivers.com/ driver/211491/ umax-scanner-astra-1220p- vistascan-3.55-parallelport-free-download.html
