Wow, that's unfortunate. You're up the creek without a paddle. I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you encounter a computer that has the lock on the hard drive and the person in possession of the computer does not know the password, the computer is stolen. The original owner put the password lock on to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data.
firstly make sure your computer hardware can support xp. get a genuine copy of xp,boot with it and follow the onscreen instructions.make sure you have a backup of your data,as depending on what you choose,there is an option of Formatting the hard disk which erases everything from the computer.
search for your computer model on google or the manufacturers website if you know the manufacturer name.if you give me the exact model and make i might be able to help.
If You are familiar with the windows installation, you can reinstall windows. During installation, the system asks You about partition where You want to install windows. So:
1. Select option Delete partition, and answer the question of the system "yes". This option erase All your existing information.
2. Create the partition on the same disc.
3. Install the windows on the same partition. That's all.
If You have another partitions or disc, just format it. And don't forget backup Your personal data!
In any case, is much better to sell the computer with the operation system recently installed - it works much better than a PC with used OS.
go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. try to recall a date when your programs used to work well that is highlighted on the calendar and select that date. it will not erase or delete any of your files but will only remove any new program/software or updates that was installed in your computer
