Re: [NTO] Win2000 "Lock-Out"
- Hi All,
So, what do you think?
Take his Dad's drive out from his 'puter (while he is sleeping)
and hook it up to his as master and his w2000 drive as slave (or
just another drive). Boot up on his Dad's and reformat his w2000
from floppy or his Dad's whoever he can get to it. Sounds
feasible. (As long as he can get it done and his Dad's 'puter put
back together before he wakes up, else he might be having worse
problems than be locked out of his own 'puter.)

If he has an Intel Motherboard (& possibly others), he needs to move the
password jumper on the motherboard, boot up, clear the password in his
BIOS, then replace the password jumper to it's normal position.
Sounds wierd but I have had it do this on an Intel motherboard for no
