Hi. I got stuck using a user acc. on a computer and i need to restore admin privileges. This would normally cause no problems but the CD/floppy drives are disabled in BIOS wich is pass protected and i can't remember the pass.
I tried booting in safe mode but all i get is the blue screen of death. Thanks in advance

Sounds like you're trying to hack into a system. I doubt you'll get much assistance here. Plus, your question violates the rules of this site.

You could call it a hack, but it's a bet. The computer is at my workplace and i bet the admin i could brake anything he dishes out.
Only this time he did good. So i was forced too seek help. I would love to do this just so i can see the look on his face because i think this is the max. he can offer

With ya, OTH.

Perhaps not EVERY business has an acceptable use policy, and attempting to usurp computer security is actually encouraged and not cause for termination. :)

And to add, the story changed from the original post to the OP's response to my post. :)

If the PC blue-screens when attempting to boot to safe mode, then there is more than one issue here. :)

In this case the OP has admitted that this is a game at best. If this is true then the OP should be doing their thing WITHOUT outside help. They stated THEY could circumvent the security, not find someone else that knows how to.

As was stated by Jennifer this has to be a violation of company policy.

Frankly, I am skeptical of all such stories.
