Won't login


when your netbook starts up, press f8 and from the following menu, choose to start using safe mode with gui. If you have specified an administrative password at the time of windows installation, use that to log on. If you have not, you should be able to simply log on with the administrative account. Now, go to the control panel>user accounts and create a new user account. Now, you should be able to logon using the new user account. Make this one an administrative/standard account instead of a limited one. When you logon using this account, you should be able to get your data of the previous account from C:\Users\<previous profile name>... You can take backup of this data and then delete the previous user profile to avoid further confusion.

Hope this helps.

What can i do to log to my computer with finger print actived with previous owner


You will need to get the previous owner to open a profile then create one of you own. Then remove the profile of the previous owner. Or do a complete operating system re-install.

I bought a used computer. The computer is asking for password.


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!

I bought a used HP Pavilion Ze4500 and do not know the previous owners password (got it from a pawn shop). How do I get it to let me reset the password so I can log on and use actually use it?


Hello, Jessie.

There is a hidden Administrator account that is created when your operating system is installed. Access that account and add your own account.

1. Boot your computer and press F8 repeatedly
2. Access Safe Mode
3. Key in “Administrator” in Username, with no password.
4. Go to Control Panel, then User Accounts
5. Create your account.

Hope this helps

Password on previously owned computer


When you are booting the computer press F8 this should allow you the option to boot into safe mode, while in safe mode you can make an administartive account and modify user accounts to your heart's content.

Emachine


Log in as administrator, it usally does not have a password on it.

Then go to users and remove the password. Log in as that user and change the password to what you want.

If there is a password on the administator, then write back and we will go from there.
