How can I bypass password in XP Pro for Dell GX280

I'm getting a refurbished Dell GX280 with XP Pro. How can I bypass system/admin password since this is for home use only and don't want to be bother with PW. I have another PC with window xp home and I just leave the BIOS's security PW ''not set'' and the placeholder empty. Can I do the same? A friend of mine said xp pro requires system and admin PW' otherwise it will not run. Also, since this is a refurbish pc, the seller indicated that it will have xp pro pre-installed with a COA sticker on the pc and a restored cd. My qustion is how will this xp pro copy registered in my pc. In other word, when I go to ''My Computer'', will it has the previous owner's name and the license #, my name or blank? When I install programs, the installer usually enter the name of the registered owner. I don't want to keep replacing his/her name with my name.

    Hi Niraj Limbu:

    How do I get admin rights before I disable Admin user account? Don't I need a PW do this which mean I have to set a PW to start? Could you gave me a more detailed instruction on doing this?

    TIA.

The only place I can think you will find an actual schematic for the PSU is from the manufacturer.

Hi i installed xp prof. on gx280 motherboard and no sound


Hi,

after you install windows xp, you might have to install xp service pack. Give this a try to see if it picks up the sound card. If not, you might just have to crack the case open and see what kind of sound card you have and download the driver.
let me know if this helps.

CANT GET WINDOWS XP PRO TO COPY FILES TO A GX280


The problem is the driver for the sata hard drive. You would need to get that from the dell site and put it on a floppy disk, then at the start of the windows install select to install that driver. I ended up just installing the rc version of windows 7 and it worked out fine.
