Hiya peeps im new to all this and i have just rebooted my computer with a disk that i got off the person i bought the computer off ages ago and its booted up ok but then when it comes to the welcome screen it asks for a password but i totally have no idea wot this is. Now it wont let me do anything else like try another disk to reboot it with or anything, Just wondering if there was a way of turning this password thing off so it doesnt come up or if there is anything else i could do please, any help would be very helpfull, thanks

Can you please give us a little more information.

What is this disk you are using to boot with?
Why are you booting off a disk?
Are you having problems booting normally?
Have you tried leaving the password blank and just pressing ENTER?
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
