    So recently my step-dad found an old desktop at his job and it works perfectly fine except I can't access it at all. It's password protected to the max even the administrator is password protected. I've tried numerous things from Google to watching videos, I've tried getting it up with Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, I've tried leaving the Administrator blank and it asks for a password, even in the BIOS settings it asks for a password so I can't change anything and I wanted to make it factory new but there's not even a setting on the boot menu or anything to do that without trying to log in. I don't know what else to do I need a computer please someone help me.

    We don't provide help here with a password-protected computer because we have no way to confirm who its owner is and the reason for wanting to access it.
