Ask your wife for the master password or administrative password. If she blocked it for the kids, it means that there are 2 profiles on the computer. 1 being the administrative account that has access to everything and the other is the kids that has access to only certain things.

I have a ZX4931-31e gateway all-in-one. i did a system restore back to factory settings. when it rebooted i was asked to log in and i don't know what the reset administrator password is? i tried...

Have you tried a blank password for the administrator. Just press enter when administrator pops up. If that does not work, try administrator. That should solve your problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Get a video card as was recommended by EA. You have a PCI-E slot (also known as PCI-X or PCI-Express). You should be able to find one in the $80 range at any Best Buy or Fry's that will work.
