Welcome to Fixya

Sounds like the old user of this computer is Karen and there was a password set under his computer profile. You can restore the computer back to the factory default state and set you own profile. Try to tap F11 when you turn on the computer and see if you will have the screen that will say restore to factory default. If this screen will no appear then the old user might have deleted the restore partition of the laptop. One way to restore it is to call HP and order the recovery disk.

Have a good one!

Hi
have you tried going into the cmos settings to try and disable the password,
sometimes you can take out the cmos battery out to clear the password.

You may have to replace the hard drive, but the password may still be in the bios.


You can also google the problem and see if any one else was able to resolve the issue.


cheers
