    I have a Levono laptop which will not liar. I tried to force stop and restart to get to system restore.

    I have got there but it is asking for password. The page had my name and email address followed by “Enter the password for this account. (Keyboard layout: United Kingdom

    I tried the email password but it says incorrect. I tried the password that I use to start the laptop. I tried every password that I can think of using!

    What “account” is this referring to ?

    I am just about to go out fir the evening so will not be able to respond to any posts, so don’t think that I am being rude!

    Thanks in anticipation of any help

    Load perhaps? I know he uses his phone on occasions.

    @FiremanT does it not give the option of “forgotten password”?

    You are right. I am using the phone braise, erm, the LT is OOA

    Sorry for not spotting the spell check.

    I have been trying to check the PW for Email, but cannot see how to do it via iPhone. I never actually use it as it is “saved” . But I think I know it. And does not work.

    My immediate problem is that our local pub, as excellent as it is, is already overbooked. So I have had 5 pints of Zahara and 2 bags of crisps


    So struggling even more with phone

    Just waiting for supermarket pizza and soup to cook
