I have a friend in town here that put w2000 on his machine. He
never could get the ting to quit asking for a password, but...
He was out of the room and one of the kids turned on the computer
and walked away. The smaller kid got up at the computer and
started playing the keyboard like rug rats will do... yep, you
guessed it... he managed to put a password in and hit enter.
OK, so here's the problem. He did not set himself up as and
Administrator (this is a w2000 Pro machine, not NT).
He has tried:
F8 on boot up
Changed CMOS to only use A drive
Put in DOS 6.22 setup disk
No matter what he has tried, w2000 comes up and asks for a
password. He cannot reformat the drive which was the purpose
of him trying the 6.22 disk.
Does anybody know how he can get into his computer. He was
thinking of unplugging the hard drive and plugging it back in
after booting up on the floppy, but I told him he stood a chance
of burning it up that way.
