HP Pavilion p6-2100 Series
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

This pc was passed to me from a dead relative and we don't know the password. And when we try to see if we can reset it on the pc it and won't connect to internet. It wont show any network connections. So we can't even connect to the internet.

Be prepared to show proof of ownership.

What else?

Fingerprint Sensor / Forced Reset

 

If the fingerprint sensor suddenly stops working on your computer

OR

If the computer is not issuing errors but still won’t let you log in,

Consider trying a Forced Reset (power reset).

 

Reminders

 

 A Forced Reset is NOT a “recovery” and does not remove your data – this reset merely forces the computer to load the Operating System from disk. 

 

Forced Reset does not harm a healthy system nor does it “fix” problems not related to a clean start.
