    Received laptop from previous employer


    My generous former employer gave me a Microsoft Surface 2 laptop. I believe it was a 1703 model.
    I am in the US and employer is in the UK. Right after I left. The employer removed me from the network and
    I was trying to reinstall Windows 10.

    I went into diskpart utility from a command prompt and select volume and ran clean command.
    I am trying to boot from the usb drive. I am pressing volume (-) and power key but the only screen I am able to get to is
    the please enter system password screen after the Widows machine boots up (see
    the attached screen shots.

    At this time:
    I am not able to see what the exact version of Windows 10 I am on.
    No matter what I try I am stuck in a endless loop where the all machine can is prompt for the system password.


    Can anyone advise if there is anyway to workaround this?
    My hardrive was encrypted with bit locker and I have been trying to see if the former employer would provide this
    so I could enter this but in my haste I may have compounded the problem.

    Regards,
    Andrew

  3. EVGA GTX 2xx series Reinbursement Service

    XFX started it and Evga is doing the same. Evga is starting its own reinbursement program for those who bought the Evga 2xx series when they first came out. All you have to do is follow a few steps.

    • Must be a new purchase from an authorized EVGA reseller. Step-ups do not qualify.
    • You have 14 days to register and upload a qualified invoice to claim your EVGA Bucks.
    • Only customers who purhased the EVGA GTX 280 or GTX 260 at the full Manufactured Suggested Reatil Price (MSRP) will qualify for the Reimbursement Program.
    • If between June 16th and July 7th you purchased an:
    • EVGA GTX 260 you will receive $75.00 in EVGA Bucks* or $60.00 Cash Back
    • EVGA GTX 280 you will receive $150.00 in EVGA Bucks* or $125.00 Cash Back
    The only thing this doesn't cover is the Step-up program. I'm fine with that because I got the price cut anyway. I just hope to get the card by this weekend if not early next week. I have a itch to bench. *Rockout :rockout:
