Question about Dell Computers & Internet
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.
