So i was waiting for the bus this morning, when my buddy waved me over to the neighbor's house (Cuz that's where he gets picked up for school). Apparantly, they were throwing out their perfectly good Dell Laptop, because either A- it was outdated or B-something didn't work. We figured it was B, so we started it up to see what was wrong. Nothing was wrong. At all. I ran a disk check (It has windows 2000, and at boot there's an option to scan the disc) and it said it has a perfectly fine 10 gig hard drive. Small, but it's enough. i'm not going to play many games- mabey some old school ones like mario or something, but this computer would mostly be used for music, web surfing, and all me messenger clients.

Thing is, the damn thing wont let me log on. I think the owner before had changed the admin's password, because it won't go otherwise. Is there another way to log onto a computer so i can wipe the hard drive and start all over, or do i have to take it into the computer people and have them tear it apart and put in a new hard drive?

And yeah, i'd puss out and take it in, because i might be able to cobble with desktops, but laptops are out of my leauge yet.

You can boot from CD and wipe it just like any Desktop.

Or you could use something like the Trinity Rescue Kit to wipe the Windows password. It's oh-so secure!
CODE
while(!asleep()) {

hehe my 1337 hax0r skills icon_smile.gif Log into safe mode (usually hold down f8 on startup) and then you can log in a a admin account. I would recommend reformatting the harddrive anyways because its proballey loaded with pron,spyware, and viruses lol.

Yeah, 'cause you can login as an admin when you don't know that password either? Almost every user is an admin anyway. New method, please.

Just take a Windows OS disc, boot from the disc drive, and you can wipe the HDD.(Go into the BIOS to change the settings to boot from the CD-Drive)
