Has someone else got a user account on it and set it up with a password or is it just yourself.
Try Safe Mode and see if you can get in that way.[Just keep tapping F8 as the computer starts.]

Activate the 'Hidden Administrator' account and see if that lets you in.

On a new laptop the password should be blank - so just pressing Enter should get you in. Or are you saying that you set up a password and have now forgotten it?

If this is a new laptop then there must not be a password. To enter simply press the enter key or click on the user name you can see on your screen.

Hope this helps

kristain's link has nothing to do with your problem, and at best is spam. But it's also a suspect site - avoid.

Thanks for your replies.
The laptop did come with a password already in, very strange. However a call to the supplier put maters right.
Thanks again.
