    I recently purchased a Dell Optiplex 755 at an auction from a company that taught IT. I cannot get past the username/password section. I am not concerned about what is in there, I just want to set the computer up for me at home. Can someone help me get past the username/password?

    Your best option when taking over a used computer is to reformat and reload Windows to start fresh.

    However, if you don't wish to do that, beyond trying simply "Enter" in the hopes that the password is blank we cannot assist as per the site rules:
