Hi there here are some options, restart the computer when it ask you for the password click on the arrow there you will see the password hint. If that does not work you need to turnoff the computer, open it and remove the CMOS battery and put it back in place after 5 to 10 seconds,put back the computer together and start it and you will not be ask for any password.
Thank you

    To get to the CMOS battery you need to open the computer, to open the computer you have to remove the screws which keep the keyboard in place,it depends on your model of computer some do have a strip that keep the keyboard down if yours has it you need to remove it also,work with caution because some parts a easy to break or damage.

Acer Aspire 5100 will not boot from ****


The best way to handle this is to completely reformat the drive again, to rid win 7 and the bad XP, and to then re-install XP from the DVD all anew. Any other way is just going to cause hassles trust me.

Windows Activation Key


I am afraid you need to speak to your friend. You have brought a laptop on which the trial period for Windows operating system has expired.
It may be that the laptop has a legal key assigned to it, if so the product key will be clearly printed on a label atteched to the laptop of your friend may hvae a record of the key.
If not the only way to legally solve this problem is to purchase the operating system.

Can I install windows xp home edition to another computer


No.
OEM CDs are locked to the computer.
If you do install XP, it will ask for activation and you cannot activate it because an OEM licence is only for the computer it was sold with.
