Got a new laptop and then went on vacation

 

Got back & turned the laptop on & it's asking for my password

 

I don't recall ever giving one, but tried the few I typically use. No luck. I then tried "password" assuming it may be the default one but still no luck

 

Now I can't get into my new laptop b/c it's asking for a password I never recall setting. What do I do?

I'm not aware that Wi10 would allow you to do this but does this mean you were using your new Win10 laptop for a while without having to log in with a password?

It was nearly 2 weeks ago, but no I don't recall having to login. Got a new Lenovo when it got here I'm pretty sure I just popped it open & started using it like any other laptop I've had

 

Should I call Lenovo support?

Learn to use this -> http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/   Do yourself a favor and take your time and read the FAQ.

 

Good Luck.

From that site: "Supports all Windows from NT3.5 to Win8.1"

 

Sounds like it won't work with Windows 10

There are relatively few software packages out there formally tested for Windows 10.  Something that runs on a range of Windows that long and wide, all the way up through 8.1, is worth a try on Windows 10.   The worst that can happen is that it doesn't work.

Thanks for the help guys. I called Lenovo and they told me how to restore my computer to the factory defaults
