how do i find the password (never before required)?
Are you talking about the password to log into Windows? To my knowledge any password for Windows would have to be chosen and set up by you when you install the updated system software. In other words it shouldn't be asking for a password unless you purposely choose to require one when you log into Windows. If you don't remember your Windows password you may need to reinstall the software. You can also try resetting the password (if you think you know what it is) by using the methods described here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2358680/locked-out-get-back-into-windows-8-by-resetting-your-password.html
