|The title may suggest a computer not owned by myself, yet this is not the case. I realize the question seems shady, and I wish that was not the case but I'm really stuck in a predicament here.|
After a problem occurred on my new Samsung N140 (Windows 7) I restored to a previous date. All was succesful, but now it asks for a password at startup. I never set up a password to this computer before and am puzzled as to who the account actualy is (name is Richard, confused as to how it got there). Regardless, I need a way to bypass the Windows 7 startup password so I can access my computer again.
I've looked around yet come up empty handed, I know next to nothing of Windows 7 as I usually worked with XP. I'm not sure if it's possible to restore to factory settings or not as a last resort, I'd preferably avoid this if possible but unless there is no other option then that seems to be my last hope.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
-Windows 7 asks for password at startup (where you select an account)
-Do not have password, need a way to bypass
-Restore to factory settings perhaps a last resort
