What operating system? Probably Windows, but which version?

Is the password for the computer, or once it boots up and runs is Windows asking?

In one case, you would probably have to change the password using the BIOS stuff, in the other case, you would use the Windows account manager.

If you can shoot a picture of the display when it asks, we should be able to help you.

Your better off getting into bios and setting cd drive as first boot option and installing windows 10 clean even if you have to install win 8 first and then upgrade.

Just bought my daughter a new HP laptop and it was terribly slow, until I did the above with a clean install without any of the hP garbage in it.
