My husband was recently given a laptop by a vendor whom he doesn't see often. As far as I know it works, however, it has a password which I cannot crack even using the password hint. There is no disc drive so I loaded basically a hacker program on a flash drive to get the password. I have followed all of the instructions but the laptop won't load past "Press F2 to enter setup" with the flash drive in. I then have to force it to shut off, holding down the power button. I don't know what else to do at this point since it did not come with the distcs. If I can't figure it out I will have to wait until my husband does another job with the guy. Any help would be appreciated.
