Question about IBM Aptiva E 240 (2158240) PC Desktop
It shows the name of the preious owner but is asking for her password. I cannot get in touch with this person. What can I do to change the sign on screen?
Ok.. here it is, boot up the computer and when you see that logon screen, press Ctr+Alt+Del on the keyboard (Sometimes you'll need to press several times and all the keys should be pressed simultaneously). You see the classic Logon Screen. Type "Administrator" on the keyboard and press enter. I hope you didn't mean the password for the hidden administrator account. If this is the one you've forgotten, do let me know. You'll need to download an application to crack the password. There's another chance, if you have another account with the administrators privilege, the we can set it after log in to the account using the command prompt "cmd". Good luck. I appreciate you for the Ratings. Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi. Try to access the windows advanced option by turning the computer on and keep tapping F8. If you see the choices how to boot the system, select Safe Mode then press enter.
Log in as Administrator. It should not ask for a password. Go to the control panel and open the User account of user profiles. Click on the previous owner's profile and delete it. You may also create your own profile while your on safemode.
Hope that will help you!
