The password is from the computer. Is it a windows login password that pops up?

Also from where, from whom did you buy it? A shop or an individual?

"my monitor had a password on it I brought new monitor"

Hopefully you can return the monitor because it's definitely not the problem. As trvlr stated, the password is on the computer. Did you try it before you bought it? You posted in the Vista forum but listed your operating system as Android. It would help to know which version of Windows is installed, do you have any idea?

"Specs: Android"
Doesn't sound like an Android problem, so I will treat it as a computer. Don't spend any more money.

1: When the password screen appears, hit > Enter.

2: If that fails.

3: If that fails.

Whether babylibra meant "brought" or "bought", and assuming it
was a request to input a password that showed up, not a password,
I don't understand why babylibra would have imagined that a
different monitor would make the password request go away.
That is scary strange.

If babylibra is new to computers... or not really across them as many might be... it might lead to confusions as to how the password request originated, let alone if it's a bios or windows (desktop) logon?

We really need more information as to when the password appears...; and what the screen/display looks like then?

Reboot just means to shut down the computer and start it up again. I guess he did a factory restore or similar. Thanks for the feedback and glad to hear it is OK now.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

A tip for Babylibra...

Ensure that all your important "personal" files are safely duplicated/ copied to external storage. typically this will be DVD at least - make two sets;label each and store safely. Update them regularly too... If you have the pennies then get a usb connected external hard drive too; copy those same files to that as well; and again keep it up to date. Don't just rely on leaving them on "any" computer and not having safe copies off the computer as well.

Should anything befall your computer at any time, and there is need to rebuild/restore it as new..., then your personal files will, for the most part, be safe elsewhere.

NEVER rely on usb flash drives/ memory sticks etc. as long term storage. Those devices are meant for convenient carrying of data that is safely stored elsewhere. They can and will fail at almost any time...

Typical items many lose when they don't have duplicates off the computer - personal photos, music, even letters and financial stuff... So don't join the legions of those who have learned (too late) that it pays to safeguard your "stuff" regularly.

In the words of the 6th Century sage Patanjali - "Avoid the problems yet to come..." Or as is often said: Trust in the Lord - but tie up your camels...
