I will be standing by.

Thank you,
Jason

If it ask for password ***** do I put as password
Laptop technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 2 years ago
If you don't know the password, you will not be able to continue this way. First, you need to choose your username in the top box. If you have a password ***** that account, enter it and continue.
Thank you for the clarification. In that case, you will need to first get your hands on a Windows 7 CD. May I ask which version of Windows 7 you are needing? (Professional, Home, Business, 32 bit, 64 bit, etc). I can help you locate that, but I will first need the version.

Laptop technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 2 years ago

Very good. So you are signed into safe mode. When it comes up, it should ask you what you want to do. Choose to System Image Recovery and complete that process. That will factory reset everything back to what it was.

I have run out of ideas.

For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.

The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.

When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.

Thank you for your patience.
