Such questions are asked almost every day on this forum.
Contact the manufacturer and be prepared to prove ownership.

Did it work when you bought it?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

It never ceases to amaze me at the number of people that buy a laptop from from the pawn shop of some guy they met down the pub without first checking that it worked.

I wish I could sell black boxes and call them lap top computers so easily.

i am not jefro but i read his question and your reply, and i have the same problem. Mine did work when it was first given to me. I was able to access the internet , read e-mail, and play internet games. Then after turning the thing off, the next time i turned it on it said i needed a hardware password. Why do i need it now, and didn't need it before? any assistence will be greatly appreciated.
