Bought used need to by pass password

You didn't say what OS you are using.

1.To try and remove the password protection you can power off the PC.
remove the side panel and then remove the battery. Leave it for 10 minutes, refit the battery and then power up the PC. The password protection may have been removed.

2. Or at start up, enter the bios settings. You may be able to disable the password from within the settings.

3. If you're not bothered which OS you use, try a new install of XP or Windows 7.

If you don't have XP or Windows 7, ask a friend to download linux and burn it onto a dvd for you(or put it onto a usb flash drive). Put the linux dvd into your dvd drive and restart the computer. You will have the choice of completely erasing Windows, or installing Linux alongside Windows.

Linux is free. It will do everything Windows can do. Linux comes with its own version of 'Office'. The best free versions of Linux are Ubuntu or 'Mint'.

You can download Ubuntu here:

Webcams do NOT work in Linux. Apart from that, Linux will do everything Windows can do (but free!) and you won't ever get a virus.

How to delete windows 7

You could try 'format c:' from the DOS prompt but they probably took that out past XP. I would suggest if your going to install something else in place of windows (linux?), to blow away the windows partition, recreate it, and format the new partition. In Windows 2000/XP when you set it up, theres a blue setup screen which allows you to delete/create partitions, not sure how to do it otherwise. If you going to Linux, download a LiveCD ISO and google how to delete partitions with it.

Im having trouble booting my northgate stap4dr17c. i think the bios got deleted or somthin??? it wont boot at all. i tried using a different hard drive with windows xp and another with windows 7 ultimate,...

If you get to the Windows repair from Windows 7 then you must have a BIOS intact. BEST way to Diagnose this would be the Magic of Kubuntu Linux Make a Boot disk from a functional machine.
If Kubuntu Linux runs from the CD/DVD drive boot disk for a timely period (Do not install Kubuntu)
Then chances are that you have issues with how your windows is configured. Or a bad hard drive (Viruses (possible)) DownLoad Kubuntu Link page. 32/64bit versions
