Hello all

Bought a laptop at a car boot sale, on startup a window pops up asking to select Ctrl+Alt+Delete,the username is there but I have no idea what the password is?

Can I delete this startup window to access the laptop, how can I use the laptop?

Regards
Neil.

Try Administrator and no password

Ctrl+Alt+Delete usually opens Task Manager.Maybe try in safe mode.Just keep tapping F8 or F5 as the computer starts.See if it lets you sign in as the administrator and maybe open a new account as an administrator.Now I think that you may be able to try this from another thread.click here
