Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My computer only has a limited account

\015 I just got this new net book from Wal-mart. It had been on the display for 2 months before i got it. When I took it home the only account was Walmart. I wanted to change it to my name. When I tried to do this I couldn't because the only account was a ''limited'' account. I went online for a really long time and tried a bunch of things such as safe mode. I went to run and typed in CMD and tried to put it in that way, but i kept on getting system error 5. I really need an administratior account\015\012Thank you\015

Answers :

You should really take it back to wallymart and get them to sort the issue or replace it. They are usually pretty good in that area.

\015\012I could offer a more technical response but it is under warranty so it maybe inappropriate to do so.
I only assume you asked Wal-Mart. They do this sometimes to keep hackers from messing up their computers they have on display. There are $ programs available to find the admin password !
