Hello,
You need to log in as a different user as the one you want to delete. For example, log in as your user that you created with the password and then delete the other user through the Control Panel, User Accounts section.

Please let me know if you still have any problem with this.

Thanks for using Fixya!

    Hello again,

    You can also boot to safe mode. When computer is turned on, hold down the f8 key and choose from the selection of options "safe mode". Then log in as Administrator. Go to control panel, user accounts, and then select the hp user you want to delete and click on delete this account.



    Thanks,

    Lolita

Hp g7000 backup disc required


is19,

You can order the Restoration Disk form HP Support.
The disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.

In the USA it is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have the Serial Number written down to give to the nice representative. This is in the white Service Tag on the bottom of the laptop. S/N = Serial Number.

For other countries please use HP Support Worldwide,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/hp-information/summary/ww-contact-us.html

When asked choose Repair (Non-Destructive Installation)

[When a user starts the laptop for the first time, they are asked if they wish to make a Backup disk. This is your Restoration Disk ]

I bought a windows xp home ed laptop the ppl I bought it from forgot the password I caint get pass boot password what shouls I do?


To get past a boot password you will need to reset the bios. On your motherboard, inside the case there is a little battery. You will need to remove that for 5 minutes and then reinsert. This will reset the Bios to factory settings, removing the password and any other changes. Have a great day.

How to install a bluetooth chip in a DELL zino Hd


I presume you mean a little "Card"? This should install into a slot under one of the panels under the laptop. I am truly amazed they sent it to you, and further amazed they didn't tell you how to install it? Once installed you will have to install the Bluetooth drivers.

Presario V6110US wireless is inop


There are 2 ways you can work this.

- One of course is the External Wireless card you currently have
- Second, is to replace the internal card. Most laptops ahve a VERY easy to getat wireless card, and you can purchase the card on ebay for as low as 9 dollars plus shipping. Find what model laptop you have, and i'll even make a reccomenation, and show you how to access the wifi card.

Forgot password to hp laptop how do i reset it.


I don't know what OS your HP laptop is installed with.

If it is Windows 8, Windows Password Hint, PIN code, Microsoft account can be used to login HP laptop. After logon successfully, change, recover or reset Windows 8 password is available.

If it is Windows 7, Password hint or another administrator account may help you. But if you don't have all of these, try password reset disk. Create it before Windows 8 locked or with Windows 8 Password Recovery tool is OK.
Besides these, Chntpw USB disk also works for Windows 7/Vista etc.

HP pavilion wireless uninstalled itself


I have the exact same issue with a wireless card. Most likely the card is bad. The driver is not uninstalling itself, it simply can't see the hardware and is therefore not listed. Change out the card, and it should resolve the issue.

Please post back if you need more help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!
