Question about Dell Dimension 2300 PC Desktop
I purchased a used PC off of Ebay that still has an active Admin account for windows XP Pro. The seller informs me that he purchased the PC at auction, and does not have a XP Pro install CD. How can I bypass / or better yet REset the Admin password to set this system up?
It is a Dell Dimension 2350 - Windows XP Pro (Certificate on the side of the case for the OS). I have a Dell Dimension 2300 desktop, and someone put an admin. password on it and didn't give me the password.How can I unlock my hard drive to use my computer
Ok, what I am going to do is show you how to bypass or (hack) a password protected windows xp computer. first, restart your computer>press F8 before it boots up, a menu will come up>select safe mode>restart in safe mode>the admin account comes up> click on it and click yes when the small menu comes up> the computer should boot to the desktop now>select start>control panel>select user accounts>select change account and follow the prompts to creating a new account (make sure that the administrator radio button is selected) put in your new password, etc> restart your computer. You should now have administrator privileges on that system. Let me know if you have any further problems. :-)

Will this work for computers that have encrypted passwords? I also purchased a laptop from a now defunct financial institution and am unable to even boot it up with out a password. Will replacing the hard drive take away all the encrypted passwords? I basically want to use it for the internet and Microsoft word programs
