I have a HP nc6000 running XP Pro and I cannot log into either BIOS or into XP. I got the PC on eBay and it did not come with an Administrator password. I used my old hard drive to run the PC and it was working fine.
Now, for some reason, I cannot log on to XP. I cannot run the XP CD to do a reinstall because the laptop is set up to boot from the hard drive so I cannot boot from the CD and I can't get into BIOS to change the boot sequence.
I can use the hard drive as a slave though. Is there any files that I can change while it's a slave to get it up and operating again ???
