The best way to connect your Laptop to your PC is to network them and create a Local Area Network - or LAN. This can be done a variety of ways depending on what operating system(s) your running. If your running Windows XP on both of them it will be really simple. 1st - you need to make sure both PC's of a Network Interface - which should be wired for best results. This port on the PC and Laptop looks like a large phone plug and is a CAT5 (RJ-45) Ethernet port. Then to make things easy, you should purchase 2 cables CAT5, and a Router or Hub which ever is in your budget. A network Hub is a device that generally has 5 ports and allows you to connect both computers to it via the Ethernet Ports. Then make sure your Computers are configured to be in the Same WorkGroup. Then Turn on FileSharing for both computers and Share a folder on each to transfer files etc... When you look in the Network Neighborhood you should see your other computer on the LAN. For more information on setting up the details refer to this link and if you have any more questions or get stuck just post and we can help you get going.

There are a few ways to do this, and the choice is yours.

Visit this site:
http://compnetworking.about.com/od/homenetworking/a/connecttwocomp.htm

It will explain the different methods and what is required for each.

The best option would be to use a Ethernet Cross-Over cable.

Then enable File and Printer Sharing, which can be found in My Network Places.

The site should direct you.

Let us know if you run into any bumps.
Good luck

Oh..that one is hard to do specially to novice. I would suggest not to do it. It would be hard for you to dismantle your laptop bit by bit and it is very risky. You might it end up damaging your laptop. Take it to a qualified technician to get it done. okay..:-)

If it's a tecra 8100 model, the power on password can be removed. You can either make your own parallel port adapter that will short out the password (I've done that), or you can buy one (like on ebay) and that'll get your bios password removed.
