Question about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC
I have a laptop that is 3 yrs old. It has Windows XP. I bought a new laptop a year ago and stopped using the old one. I'm in the Army and away from my wife and kids and now have use for the old one. It was working fine the last time I used it. But when I tried starting it up after not using it for so long it goes right to a blue screen that says " Enter main HDD password". The problem is I never set up a main HDD password. The guys at Geek Squad want to charge me a $100 dollars and say they cant guarantee that it can be made to work. Are there any backdoors for this? Or do you have any other ideas. This old laptop has all my info from where I did my taxes with TurboTax just before I bought my new laptop and I really need to get to that info. I dont have the money to get it fixed right now. Please help

Remove your plug, and battery, try opening the back of your laptop, look for the cmos battery, and try removing it for about 1 minute. this should reset your bios, and erase and password that i may have. dont worry, it wont erase any files on your harddisk.
maybe the difficult part would be to spot the cmos battery. depending on the motherboard of your laptop, some would be very easy to find. some are soldered in the motherboard. Your lucky if you could remove it easily. battery is about half inch in diameter, looks flat, like a plate.
