Thank to anyone that can give me some insight. My company that i work at recently had a computer malfunction and the hard drive took a crap. long story short, they said their IT dept wont take it back so if i wanted to work on it to fix it i could keep it. after getting the replacement hard drive installed and having the usb with the OS ready to boot via bios im hit with the admin password prompt. I have spoken with my boss as well as IT and they all are lost as to what the password is set to. My question is, I replaced the HDD, do i now have to replace the SSD next and thats it or do i have to replace the ssd and the ram unit ? I have a HP all in one model 24-df0167c. Thanks again!
