they sometimes have the hard drive partitioned with the restore to factory condition on the second partition...read the screen when you first power up the computer and look for something that says something like press F12 to restore...it will put the computer back to the way it was the day you got it...you will lose any data and updates though....soooo back up anything you can't live without before trying that option...
