Customer Question
My laptop had the...

My laptop had the message that I needed to upgrade microsoft, and after it was loaded, it asked me for a pass word for outlook email. I don't know what my password ***** ***** my laptop won't let me open the screen to get into my work. How can I get the password? It won't let me change it because it asks me to insert something into my the port, which I don't know what it is talking about. Now I am sorry that I upgraded your system. How can this be fixed? I am on my desk top computer writing this to you. My HP laptop is useless. Constance Viscoi

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your HP laptop?

Microsoft

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update your Outlook?

I haven't updated it since I got the laptop. I just did the update on 3/22/2018.

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

Can I get my lap top to recover before that dat to the way in was before? I have aol email and gmail so i don't need outlook.

Is that your user name?

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
