Default Help...

Well my friend gave me his laptop to fix (all he needs is a few drivers...but he doesn't know what that is or how to get them), the funny thing is...it has a windows login password...I can't call him because his number is in my cell phone, and its battery just died, and i left the charger in las vegas...so is there a program that can just delete his password like a bootup disk...? Thanks in advance.

Ok, so your friend doesn't have a guest icon. You can log in through safe mode. When the computer first comes on and the manufacturer's logo comes up hit F8. This will bring you to the boot loader, it is a black screen. Next choose start in safe mode. Then the computer will start up.

What brand of computer is it. Because sometimes you can go into the BOIS and delete the system password from there.
