Harvey Norman so you post to USA forum about a store in Australia? really>?
You purchased this 10 years ago right,if yes wow.
I went to Normans online no used PC there. so...

first off if you asked them for passwords this is now ILLEGALL by law spring 2018 , and your country is signatory on GDPR regulations I think, right? security key what does that mean?
my guess now is its asking for
why not tell what is on your screen NOW.
bios PW lost? what?
HDD password locked
some have power on PW locks
then comes windows PW.
and and last , your windows activation code
not posting your failing screen photos makes this impossible to answer.
gee computers are complex and for sure when 7 dead.? - 0afb93b5-cd9e-4acc-83ac-3445a4560af6.png

    i corrected your COA, so it is safe, ok

    if you bought a dead used PC (it is used)
    say so (even say what is dead and with photos)
    BUT if was sold as refurbished?, say so and say if refurbished to window 10. or w8 or????
    we can not know what Norman STORES did in say Australia. not now not ever, we be USA.
    ahhh you bought it 10 years ago , BINGO DING DING chime.

    here is a page showing common 7 classes
    of passwords.
    look here see them , does your PC ask for a password? if yes, which one is it.

    if you COA license fails that is a whole other pit of snakes, but I saved you from losing your COA, by redacting your photo.
    I hope. not too late.

    if you just bought this used PC at NORMANS store why not take it right back and get one that works or a refund in person
    phones do not work for this type of problem
    after all they can not see your PC , touch it nor check its serial numbers, at all.
    some have the warranty code hidden, only visual inspections by them work,
    HP I know does this with codes stamped in the battery well ,just as and example to learn how refurbs work,
    if the pC was not refurbed 10 years old there is no warranty and the sales pages would have stated that clear as day, im sure.

    did not buy this PC this year, no.
    did not buy it used at Normans ever.
    did buy it new at Normans 10 years ago sure.
    now we know what the truth is.
    the truth matters. (and is out of warranty)
    so Norman is not on the hook are they, at all. it is now your baby.
    so post the full symptoms with norman side track out of the topic, ok>? please and thank you.

    the cheapest ASUS there is new.

    see? yours is 10 years old a fact.

    also your video is useless for BIOS Password locks or bitlocker or HDD PW locks.
    windows recovery is 10x more easy. ask.

    bought new.
    then 10 years later …
    1: kids played on it and set passwords, oops
    2: or hdd died ,very common this old!
    3: or batteries in all laptops this old are bad , we simply replace them first. always a first things first deal, those 2 batteries the big one and the coin cell both.
    4: then BIOS starts working, if not BIOS locked by kids in step 1. or windows PW lost.
    more issues with KIDS.

You have purchased a licence, the physical cd is incidental. Contact mcafee you can probably download the software for free. Also write a letter of complaint to Harvey Norman

P5vd2 not sound on win 7

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.Welcome to Fixya, Rifaguant.

Try the Vista drivers, Click here to download the Audio driver.
Select your Operating system as Windows Vista 32bit.

Click Audio heading and then click global to download, you may have to try both drivers if the first one doesn't work.

If they both don't work then:
ASUS has not created Windows 7 drivers for the Audio chipset on this mainboard. You will need to purchase a basic sound card to fit the White long PCI slot compatible with Windows 7.

Try eBay or your local computer store.

Take care!

The warranty should extend to make up for the service time, but if you can't seem to get good communication from the servicer, I would call the manufacturer's customer service number in your manual.
