    oh thats weird. coz when i got it fixed the guys were telling me they couldn't get into the computer coz my admin account password was wrong. I think they just maybe typed it in wrong and just made an excuse up to me lol.

    When I returned my last laptop to Best Buy in exchange for a new one (damaged) they said can we have your password to unlock it so they can wipe the HD so i gave them a wrong one :D They called me back into the store to unlock it :mad:
