It had been used for at least nine months. What a bother to get a new one!!!!!! Any ideas why, please. AB68 anniesboy68 12:01 26 Jun 2014 Thanks for the reply. The point was I couldn't get into Windows because it wouldn't accept the password. So I could do nothing until I had gone through the rigmarole of obtaining a new one.
