Last night while computer was downloading everything for set up, it came to the screen to enter user name and password.
I do not know what either of these are, since this is a brand new install why am I not asked to insert a new password, instead of trying to remember an old one. The last time I had this problem, I called Dell they got me passed the forgotten password trouble, and when I set the computer up after that I did not enter a password, because of this very reason.
Phil, I have no idea who they actually were but I called there Dell number. As always with them, I tell the first person what is wrong, end up getting transferred, swear to god never anytime less 4 times, having gone through the what's wrong scenario with every one of them.
I usually end end I India but sometimes the orient.
As to partitions and there installation I have know idea what was included when guy showed up here with replacement hard drive.
He just left saying things were fixed. One tech wanted to come at 930 at night that was when my wife was tring to set up a time for the install. I did not think that appropriate and cancelled him from ever showing up here.
I have hooked up old XP pc and will attempt a burn of cd to get past, password delemma.
