Customer Question
Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a Desk top computer the IT people where I worked set it up so that I had to log in via the company server. During a resent visit our grandson entered the wrong password ***** now I am unable to gain accent to the computer. Since I am now retired and living in Spain, I made a request to the company to rest my password, as I no longer work for them they ignored my request and now I have no way to use this computer, is ther a Way that I can gain access what do I need to do to get the computer back so it can be used?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your laptop?

It is not a laptop it is a desk top.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your laptop? Have you installed any updates recently?

No I cannot gain access to the computer because the company shut it down because incorrect passwords were entered

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I am not sure what else you need

You can reinstall Windows from scratch, set your own account and password ***** use the PC.

is there a label on the PC somewhere that tells you which version of Windows it has license to?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It is Windows 7
Tech Support Specialist: UranIT, Network Administrator replied 7 months ago

If license code is listed there, you can download Windows 7 from Microsoft and reinstall it on PC.

here is the link to Microsoft instructions and download: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7

I am currently working off my IPad to communicate with you
Tech Support Specialist: UranIT, Network Administrator replied 7 months ago

You do not need to get online on that PC. Read steps I provided on any other device, then follow them on that PC to reinstall Windows on Dell.

Hi,
I noticed that you have charged me for a monthly subscription for you advice, I did not sign up for that and since the advice you have given so far did not help, I thought that I had a seven dat free trial therefore I see no reason for you to charge me, please ensure that you refund the payment you made to my card and cancel all future payments. I don't think that you quite understood my problem and the advice B given was of no value to me to solve my issue. Thanks for trying but now make sure that you refund and cancel any future payments. Thanks David
Tech Support Specialist: UranIT, Network Administrator replied 7 months ago

Hello, subscription is optional and seems like you signed up for it, to cancel, please contact Customer service HERE.

Advice I gave you will work if you go via each step with recovery, or if that is not available, use download Windows 7 link

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill

I was in the habit for some time of running my apple tv with airplay from my iPad, so that I had the benefit of the much easier searching and keyboard facility. It used to work quite well, but now the link with the Apple TV drops out every five minutes or less. Previously even if the iPad went to sleep the airplay continued. I think the problem may have happened after a software update, which moved the position for activating the airplay and produced a slightly different display screen. It's not the internet dropping out - that happens too, but only occasionally, and it usually reconnects after a few moments, without intervention … read more
