You know how on new dell comps. how you have to type a password for the "Administrator" before you can log on?Well I forgot the password and I'mm on my sis comp and I was wondering if anyone knew how to get around that without taking the comp apart or paying somebody to do it, by the way i can't download anything on this comp. Thx.

Psst..orracle, he has to log onto administrator to create a new name. If you cant even get onto admin, you cant change anything.

Did you try using "tmp"?

I suggest reinstalling Windows.

I think there's another way, but it requires downloading stuff. There might be something else, but reinstalling Windows is your best bet.

Most of the big consumer computer companies dont give you a windows cd so you cant reformat. I guess you download something on a friend's computer, burn it on a cd, and then copy it onto your own computer. Or take this as an opportunity to install linux.

WHAT A COINCIDENCE! I just happen to have 2 Windows XP Pro + SP2 disks for sale. Perfectly legal, 100% brand new, with the CD key, only $75 plus shipping.

Kyle - Interested? Normally they'd cost about $150.

I'M INTERESTED.

I won't buy it right away, but if you could set one aside for me for just a little while that'd be sweeeet. Best price ever.
