So my friend from school just called me -- he's about three hours away so I haven't seen the actual machine -- anyways, he says that after he tried to tether his phone for internet access (and failed) he gave up and restarted his laptop (it's some kind of HP 17" if I remember correctly). NOW when he turns it back on, he's getting ONLY the administrator account to log into.
I've tried to look this up and I keep getting the same "try entering nothing" and "try the default user password". He did try just hitting ENTER and ... oddly enough, he doesn't have a password for his account. He just logs in. Any suggestions?
Haha. Sorry, I assumed since I posted in the Windows 7 forum, that would be assumed. As for the specific version of Win7, I am not sure. I would venture to say that it is Win7 home premium (solely on the fact that the majority of consumer laptops come with Win7HP).
I agree though, having thought over this for a bit now, I assume that it's gone into safe mode. I will try to fix it when I get back to school with him tomorrow. Thanks for the advice.
