    Can anyone help me please. I bought a second-hand computer at an auction. It is old but seems in good condition. The previous owner has passed away. When I switch on the computer does a memory search and then asks for a password. It has, on the screen, the amount of failed password attempts. Is there any way I can get this computer to function? Can I bypass the password or erase everything and try to reinstall other programs? It seems a shame to let a computer go to waste

    You can probably reset the bios password. Usually it is a jumper on the motherboard or sometimes you have to take out the cmos battery. Try to find out what type of motherboard you have and go to their web site and get a manual. That should tell you where the password reset jumper is located.

    If it is a laptop it might be a lot more difficult.
