    There are plenty of password reset utilities available that can be used on a bootable CD. The downside to this is if there are password protected folders under the accounts, they will also be deleted.

    "i need to know how to resat the password"

    Is there one user that doesn't have a password? You can't exactly reset a password of an account you don't have access to. If you got it second hand, see if you can ask the original owner for the password of the account. Otherwise, see if you can get another operating system installed. If you could somehow make a new user on your current one, you could reset the password of the other one...
    Damn. I've never had this problem before, so I can't really come up with a solution. Hope this helped, anyway.

The only thing you can do is buy and load a new copy of windows xp Home .

this will install and overwrite any and all files passwords & etc so you can format and use this computer if its factory operating system was xp home this is what you need to buy to unlock this computer but make sure you purchase a full version not an upgrade version of XP HOME

I have a Satellite 1005 S157 and would like to know what I need to do to be able to use wireless. Do I need a card? USB drive? Software? Thanks.

If you are talking about wireless networking, all I did was buy a wireless PCMCIA card and install the drivers on the CD or buy a usb network adapter and do the same. I am still running Windows XP Home on my system and with bringing the ram up to 512 MB which is the maximum, it still does what I need it to do.

How do i remove the hard drive from s157

Go here, click on the tab that says "detailed specs" it will prompt you to save the PDF, open the pdf and on the last page you'll see a picture of where the hard drive is.

It's just two screws, unscrew them and slide it out.

Hope this helps!

I dont know what i have on my toshiba

Yikes, look up password recovery on Google, you can download a bootable floppy disk program that can get past this. In the System control panel, you should see a list of system,hardware , device manager that is on the laptop, look for a device under network adapters or modems
