Help! I bought this Hp pavillion on craigslist and didn't get any software with it, every time I try to boot it up it won't let me in it keeps asking me for a password and there was never one put in it, I guess first I shoul tell you that it did work when I first got it and after several days of working it locked me out saying I needed a password, so I went into the system and reset the password so I could get in and now every time I hit enter it flashes logging off and saving settings, I hit the f8 and tried to logg on in safe mode and it does the same thing, There is no logging on as administrator setting I looked for it so I am not sure wht else to do. HELP
