    :confused: When I start my computer a window comes up asking me for a network password. The user id it provides is "default". Well, I have no idea what the password would be. If I click, cancel, or ok....the same thing happens: NOTHING. The box goes away but windows (2000) does NOT load at all. The screen is empty. Can anyone please tell me what the hell is going on before I have to shell out $60 to best buy just to tell me my computer is broken?
