Bought this C510 at a yard sale. No user or admin password available. Windows xp comes up but wants me to login as user, tried administrator and its password protected as well. System will not let me...

You can use external CD drive to reinstall windows, or use Superutilities CD to change the passwords. Also you can take the HDD out and attach it to a desktop PC to ghost an image on it.
You can too replace the internal CD drive with a working one.

NICE, and this is the reason why they sold it at the yard sale.

What you going to need is a firmware package I do nto have a link but google is your best friend what it does is basically hack the password (witch is kinda borderline TOS violation to even tell you how to do it)

I would say you got shafted because you going to spend time and possiable money for the solution. And APEX to boot is not even worth $10 bucks at a yard sale. I am not trying to hate here but tell you facts. Your solution is google sorry I cannot direct link that as its a exploit. try 4 zeros, or 4 9999 to try and defualt erase it Good luck.

please do be considerate and leave postive feedback or ratings as this is the best i can do for you.
