Hi,

Bought an IBM PC off ebay. Advertised as brand new but received it and it is setup and asking for a log on password for administrator. Any ideas how to get round this problem, thanks.

can you not get in touch with the vendor?

IF YOU HAVE THE WINDOWS XP CD
FORMAT THE COMPUTER AND RE-INSTALL WIN XP BEFORE YOU START PERSONALISING THE COMPUTER
you dont know what else has been installed , including possible viruses or trojans be safe scrub it and start again.
hope this helps

Solano, A stab in the dark, but try 'admin' or 'PASSWORD'. IBM are famous for it.
