2. Every time I fail to operate the PC for more than 5 minutes, it automatically shuts down. How can I lengthen that time to forever?
3. Every time I click on the start-up button, it asks me for my password. I'm the only person using this PC, so how can I avoid having to type in the password every time?

1. Take pictures of the unit and post them here. High-res photos should be posted as links and not embedded as images. Take close-up shots of every label and written markings on the unit.
2. Run dxdiag and post a screenshot of the main window.
3. Run hardware info software like CPU-Z, System Information Viewer, etc. and post screenshots.
As for #2, check the Power settings in Control Panel. The laptop may be set to go to sleep after 5 minutes. Adjust as necessary.
As for #3, do you mean the Windows Start button at the lower left corner of the screen? It shouldn't do that. It's possible that Malicious software is lurking in the computer.
