Mandriva and the amd

I am using a Compaq Presario SR1200NX. It is running a AMD Sempron 2800+ 2 gigahertz processor, and has 1 gig of memory.
When I try to load Mandriva (2010) it asks for my username and password, but when I load it on another computer with a Intel P4 processor (also 2 gigahertz) it loads without asking for username or password. Any help would be great.

Thank you.

When you installed Mandriva you had to make a user account with password as well as creating a root (administration) password. Some distros will use auto log in that bypasses that while others times you will be asked for that information. It usually gives you an option during installation whether you want auto log in or not. If not then you need to type in your user name and password each time.
