i was waiting for the last 'this will take a few minutes' time on the initial computer setup. so, i left the room, came back, and the pc had timed-out. and i forgot the password. how can i redo the password. i have tried several combos of what i thought it was - no luck. the pc doesn't give me the option to 'reset password'. what do i do?
