Hello,Not sure if I can explain this right but My computer deleted itself and I had a friend reformat it for me. But for some reason I cannot set it because it won't let me because it tell me I need a pass word but I never had a password setup for it. So can someone please tell what I can do so I can setup my computer again.

When you reformat a drive, that means you erase everything on it. It becomes a blank drive and you then need to re-install the operating system before you can use the computer again.

When you say it is asking for a password, that is not enough information. Describe the screen you are seeing when it asks. Does it come up within a few seconds of turning on the computer, or does the computer do several things before the password request appears, usually anywhere from 30 seconds to 4 minutes after starting the computer?

What kind of computer? A laptop? A desktop?

What brand?

What model?
