Password problems
Hi. I was tring to set up my password the other day for the first time.
Every time I put in the password I wanted, it told me that it couldn't CHANGE
the password. Problem is, I havent had a password before. It should have
been setting it up for the first time. Can someone explain to me what to do!
Any help would be appriciated.

Re: Password problems
In general, when you request to change the password the system should ask
you for your current password, then ask for a new password to be input twice
..

If you have never entered a password it should still ask you for it - the
answer at this stage is a simple carriage return i.e. blank. Then it should
ask for new password.

Re: Password problems
Hello,

Can you describe how you are trying to change your password?

Are you using the control panel?

- Click start
- Click control panel
- Click user accounts and family safety
- Click User Accounts

Do you get the option 'Create a password for your account' or does it say
'Change your password'?

Re: Password problems
You can leave the old password field blank, and enter the new one in
twice (for confirmation). And are you clicking on the "Create a password
for your account" in the User Accounts? If it says "Change password"
then there may already be one on there.
