Section 1.3 provides you a way to clear Password. However, I am not sure it will work for your case or not. 

1.3 Clearing a Password 
If the notebook you are servicing has an unknown password, 
follow these steps to clear the password. These steps also 
clear CMOS: 
1. Prepare the notebook for disassembly (refer to Chapter 5, in 
section “Preparing the Notebook for Disassembly” for more 
information). 
2. Remove the real time clock (RTC) battery (refer to Chapter 5, 
in section “ RTC Battery”). 
3. Wait approximately five minutes. 
4. Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the notebook. 
5. Connect AC power to the notebook. Do not reinsert any 
battery packs at this time. 
6. Turn on the notebook. 
All passwords and all CMOS settings are cleared.

I have just bought a second hand compaq nc 4010 i have read that i can make it wireless using a pcmcia wifi card how do i install it as i have no disc drive on the nc4010?thank you


pcmcia is a card slightly smaller than the antique floppy disc that usually fits in a slot on the side of your laptop your model does have this slot, but personally I would go for a usb hsdpa modem as this provides faster broadband internet.
good luck

Hp nc4010 second battery


Hi,

The second battery would replace the cd/dvd drive in that slot. Obviously you would lose the ability to play cds/dvds..The drive is easy to remove -just push on the button to the right and then pull out the drive. Hope this helps..Michael

Try doing windows update. Look for the +Hardware tab when you go to the update website. That usually gets 99% of the drivers.
