Windows 7: I found an old laptop that isn't activated anymore.

15 Aug 2013   #1

I found an old laptop that isn't activated anymore.

I found a computer my dad had gotten me through Verizon, then he just shut it off for no reason. I can't get into it, so does anyone know how to get in without reactivating it and paying money?
