Q: Administrator Password needed to install software!? Never had an administrator password! This thread is locked from future replies


For the past few days my laptop has been giving me the message "To continue, type an administrator password, and then click Yes". Ive never had, nor has it ever required me to give an administrator password. When I enter anything in the box, it tells me that it "requires elevation"...??? I do have a Fingerprint as well, but it is not accepting my fingerprint. I cannot download iTunes, printer driver, any kind of software whatsoever!


Another note- I was told to enter any password 3 times to receive an error message, but no error message is ever given.



When you loaded Windows for the very first time then you were prompted for the name of an account and for a password. This account was created as an admin account. This is the account you should now use.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
