Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!
Could you tell me when this password ***** comes on?
Is it when the mini PC first powers on?
Before you even can get to Windows or anything like that?
Please let me know when you return, so that we can continue working on this question. I will respond as soon as possible when I see your reply.
Have you tried rebooting the PC since?
It seems like you somehow have a drive lock on the machine that is requiring a password.
But you said you never set that up?
Is there a power cable going to the device?
Hmm, could you try disconnecting then reconnecting the power?
Could you tell me where you purchased the device from?
Is that the device>
