Turn the pc off and turn it back on and continuously hit the f8 key until you get to the advanced boot options menu and select safe mode
Select administrator it may or may not be password enabled. let me know if you can log in

It is still stuck on the pw page
The password is blank, just hit enter
Ok it seems the administrator password was changed. are only option is to boot into the recovery partition and restore the computer to its factory defaults which will wipe your computer to the way it was when you bought it. IS there any data on it that you need?
To enter the recovery partition. power down your laptop and restart it and immediately after restarting it hit the ALT F10 keys continuously until you boot into the recovery partition. from here you can restore the Netbook.
After I hit enter, what to do next?
