I have a Lenovo desktop that I have not used in close to a year. I'm not even sure if it is windows 7 or 8. I have no internet connection going to it and when I try to open windows using my password I get the error message that the pc is offline. Correct me if I am wrong but an internet connection should not be required to use a computer. I am going to give the computer away to a relative but first want to do a recovery. How can I bypass this error message and open windows. I even bought a wireless dual band USB adapter to access my WiFi but need to install the driver first. Something I cannot do until I open windows. Any help would be much appreciated.
