  1. I sent a hp nc6400 laptop to my corporate office for someone to use until they received a new laptop.

    when i sent it as I only used it once in a while I never set the passeword or user

    I always left it administrator and password as sign in! I got it back with adminidtrator as user

    but the password password does not let me in. I asked if anyone knew the new password

    and it seems that noone is remebering. I can boot in safe mode and get to regedit but

    not sure what to do from there to fix problem.

    on another note. every time i turn on this lap top i get the message windows must be activated do you want to activate now? Yes tells me that it is already activated click ok

    you click ok and you get the stupid music and a administrator logo click on administrator agin and you go back to the windows activation notice.


    sorry for being so long winded but at a loss thanks

    You have a problem for which we can offer no help. Password recovery are off limits to tech support folks. Someone stoopid may have cost your company $300 for a new system board.
    The other problems are fixable, but not without a repaired password issue.
