My friend bleeping-steve bought a Dell Dimension E520 PC. When he unpacked it and booted it up, it asked him to complete the set-up. It asked for a username and a password. He typed in a username, and then the password and confirmation of the password. But now he can't get any further because setup says that the password isn't recognised. It's not that it's invalid - it just uses normal alphabetical letters, no symbols or anything that could be invalid. So now he's stuck.
(He has registered with Bleeping Computer but something seems to have gone wrong with his registration - it says he is logged in, but attempts to post result in a "permission denied" error. Hence I am asking on his behalf.)
