I keep getting a HOME-XB2X7J77GN error. What does that mean?

I cannot find my disk for a re-install so I'm at a loss.

I've tried the manufacturers backdoor passwords for BIOS.

I'm on Windows XP.

I can try getting to the DOS prompt...

I doubt it...
have you tried by getting into safe mode and modify the passwords? this only works when the administrators password is known or is none..
otherwise i suggest you to download and use ophcrack..
you have to burn it into a cd and let it boot there.. havent tried it.. but ive heard lots of comments that it basicallly does everything for you once it has booted from the ophcrack cd.
here is the link of ophcrack http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/es.index.php

I have fat fingered my admin password when I changed it last and can't access admin user


Are you talking about your Windows administrator password?

Are there any other user accounts on the computer? If so, there may be a way to recover your administrator password through a command prompt.

If however you are the only user on the computer, I'm afraid you will have to reformat/reinstall the operating system. =(
