Reset my computer without Windows password or CDs

> I cannot log in on the Windows screen. 


On another computer, with a CD-burner, Google-search for "nordahl offline password".

This is a program that you download and burn to a CD-recordable.

Then, turn your computer on, and boot your computer from this CD.

You will be able to "blank-out" the Windows password.

Reboot your computer, from your disk-drive, and leave the password field "blank".

Once logged-in, set a new password.


But, you don't know if your eBay purchase was a virus-infected computer.

So, it is highly recommended that you reinstall Windows.
