Question about Compaq Armada 3500 Notebook
There are two operating systems (Windows Professional 2000 & Windows 95) , laptop used to boot to Windows Professional, but I changed the password and cannot remember it, laptop now boots to Windows 95 after I selcted alternative op system.
1. How do I switch between the two operating systems
2. How do I reset the passwors in Windows Pro 2000
3. How do I get the computer to boot Windows Pro 2000
In a dual boot system computer, the c: drive at the top level you have a boot.ini file. This file contains the boot order of the Win 98 and Win 2K. You can boot up with a DOS disk and change the boot order in the boot.ini file.
To reset or remove the password from the Win 2K operating system you need a password recovery program, usually a boot CD. These programs are available on the Internet, they can reset or remove Windows OS passwords (ie, NT, Win2K & XP).
The last option to your problem is to reinstall Windows 2K or install XP or Vista, I recommend you install XP as you computer is old since it has Win95 and you should add more RAM, better still upgrade your computer.

If your not interested in to os systems then you can format
