Try this, this should work for other versions of windows.

1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up.
2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.

Hope this works, if not just google windows password bypass, there are a few programs out there that can get around windows passwords, but they are more complicated

Yes it can, hinges are repairable. Get a quote from your local repair shop, then try these guys: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com

They'll beat any quote even with the shipping charges. And they ship it back by Fedex or UPS

Just bought a Eee PC 1000HA from a pawn shop, and when I charged it and turned it on, it goes to a bios screen that says at the bottom that the hard disk is locked. It ask's for user password or press ESC...


When buying things from a pawn shop, it is wise to check it out to see if it functions properly before you purchase it.
Hard disk passwords cannot be broken/hacked, and putting a new hard disk in the laptop may not work, this depends upon the BIOS password setup.
I suggest you try and return it and get a refund.

Hello, just make sure you haven't got a floppy diskette or cd loaded as it may be trying to boot from one of these instead of the hard drive. Regards, nicam49
