The only way to reset your boot logon password is to take out the battery for about 5 minutes and that will clear the password in CMOS. The battery is located on your motherboard. I know it is tough cause its a laptop but just go slow and remember to put the battery back in the same way you took it out, it is easy to put in back in reversed.

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!

Does my Compaq series pp2140 have built in wifi?


go to compaq.com support they'll ask for your model number operating system xp or vista or windows 7. If its xp they have the driver download available all though I doubt if you need it unless you just installed the xp os. To answer your question yes it does if its ap 2140 there is no pp2140 that i saw.

Compaq Presario 900 Series PP2140 Power Up


I think you sould check your batteru first.
  • Remove your battery from lap.
  • Add power card to lap.
  • Make on without battery.
  • If it works, then you need to replace the battery or you can chek your lap with another battery, if it fixe your problem. Then you should replace the battery.

Thanks and Good Luck
