Logging On

When you first power on the laptop, you will have to create a password for the SHSU account that will be used to login. To set the password, select the ‘SHSU’ account from the Windows 7 welcome screen. You will be prompted with a screen to ask you to create a new password. Leave the top blank space that says “Password” empty. Then create a password that is complex enough so that others are not able to decipher but easy enough to remember.  Once you set the password, you will log into the laptop.

NOTE: This password is not tied to your current SHSU username and password.  So changing your password here will not affect your current account password.  Additionally, this password cannot be retrieved by IT@Sam so please be sure that you remember your password.
