Logical thing to do would be to ask her what it is. Once in the computer, remove it in user settings.

'they were playing around with it and entered a password by mistake and they don't remember it'
that's hard to believe....just let them know that if they can't remember the password they have to buy you a new one.

You could call Asus and be prepared to prove ownership. If you do get it unlocked, put your own password on it and don't let anyone use it. It's an expensive lesson.

Start the computer and press F8 a few times, from the black menu select: command prompt, When you get to the command prompt type in:
net user administrator /active:yes note the space before the /
If this command completes successfully you should be able to restart the computer and let it start up normally. The log on screen should now contain the administrator account....if there is no password on it you are lucky and should just loggin by hitting enter on the admin account. It will load up the admin account and now you can go to the control panel, USERS and remove the password for your old user. If this is successful you should rehide the admin account by: typing cmd into the search box, and that brings up the command prompt again, type:
net user administrator /active:no
That will rehide the account, but make sure you can log in to your normal account. Keep Away from small children. If the first command does not complete (to bring up the admin account) it will be because you lack permissions. Aside from that try you tube for alternate suggestions not provided here for security reasons.
