    Hi I'm in the process of formatting a friends laptop.
    He gave me the password.
    After connecting it to my home network I rebooted and now it won't accept the password anymore.
    Please help as I need to get his stuff off there before I can format!!!

    :eek:

    Boot into Safe Mode and login as the Administrator account. Try using a blank password. Most people dont set a password on the Administrator account.
