Brand new Packard Bell compact - I think an imedia S Series but I never looked - supplied by a major British retailer whose name is similar to a popular dish in an Indian Restaurant.
My acquaintance who just bought this asked me to come down and set it up for him. When I got there it required an access password. He is elderly and suffers from memory problems and had no idea. Trying everything he could come up with didn't work. Further, I couldn't find any reference to any password in their documentation.
I noticed also that the e-mail address listed above the password entry box is not his - similar but the ISP is different. The one on the log-in screen is @outlook.com while his is @btinternet.com.
While I would be inclined to dump this back on the supplier to sort out, which is almost certainly what he will do, I believe I know how to get round this problem if I have to, but my real question is -
Is it possible to set up a computer running 8.1 so that it will boot without any password at all ?
