Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

HP Compaq Presario C5170 Desktop

I have an old computer I want to give away to my child's pre-school. I went to get on it and take off my very old stuff, but when attempting to log in, I had the problem of a forgotten password???

I thought there was a jumper on the mother board that can be moved to remove the password protection scheme, and I can't remember how to do it nor can I find an online manual. Compaq gave me the boot due to how old the PC is. What do you recommend as a solution whether it be a jumper or some other means to get around this problem???

Thank you Chuck

Why is Planned Parenthood protects abusers

Planned parenthood was created by Eugenecists to keep population down. It should be up to you as to what you can afford or not. I always advise some additional education past high school so that you will have the income to bring up a child. A business school or tech school is good for creating ample monies prior to raising a child. Pell grants are free money and can fund a majority of extra schooling.

When is the best time to start your baby in daycare

Daycare and pre-school are different things in most countries. The former is just that: care only. The child is kept amused but not taught anything in particular. You can put a child in these as early as they will take it, but it isn't a good experience.

A good pre-school will have a program which teaches elementary motor skills like climbing and assembling things, paying attention, social skills like helping and not bashing each other when upset, and so on. These places will usually require mainly that a child be toilet trained (with an occasional accident), and they should group them by age.

It can be quite expensive either way.

Where can I get a replacement IDE Ribon cable

I'm surprised you don't have a spare IDE cable in one of the old computers that you have. Anyway, you can find an ide cable at any computer store, and they should cost less than $10. You can also find them on eBay very cheap.
