Question about Computers & Internet
The pc is a GATEWAY E-3400, 2K prof. It's a hand me down from library. Windows login template says pac for login. that must be "public access computer". Can't figure out what kinda security system they put on it. We're just poor folks trying to get more use out of old junk pcs. They said it works, but we just can't get past the windows template sign in page. Should I try the pull out the battery trick? To void passwords?Don't have any boot disk etc.
Thanks for any help
This question is kind of a landmine. What you're asking is 'How do I hack a windows password?' on a donated workstation.
The appropriate way to handle a donated computer, whatever the source, is to reinstall the operating system. Check ebay, or a local 2nd hand computer store for cheap licenses of windows XP. Or, if you're feeling a little adventurous, you can install a free linux based operating system like Ubuntu (ubuntu.com). It's perfect if all you're looking for is something to cruise the internet, email and play an occassional game of solitaire. Google docs or open office are both free, and can take of most MS Office needs.
If you're dead set on hacking this password, there are dozens of people willing to tell you how to do it, and they're only a google search away ;-).
