My old man's best friend divorced his wife a few years ago. She left a bunch of her stuff at his house. He has repeatedly asked her to come get her stuff & she refuses everytime. Since he bought it, he has the right to do whatever he wants with it. So instead of pawning it he gave it to my daughter for school work. She was so secretive around the time she left, that he doesn't know any of her passwords. It's stuck on the gmail/microsoft password login. He does have the admin password, but that doesn't seem to help at all. Is there anyway at all for me to access the advanced boot options without F8? I've tried F2 Which takes me set up & F12 which takes me to boot options. They both do not have the options for advanced boot options. Is there any hope for us to save this laptop. It's kinda old, but my daughter really loves it.
