Hi all Hope everyone is Well

My problem is that I had to remove a few comps from a newtork which the company no longer wanted and intalled new comps, but I am now having problems in saving the bios and getting into
the xp user as their is no network connection nore other computers connected.

I can't use my password recvorery cd due to I cant save it as the cd rom boot, I thought about trying to get it boot from disk but then I have the same problem the comouter loads up and comes up
with the windows XP scren for user log on and where I want to log onto i chose the computer name
but Im not connected to the network etc.. and can't connect to the network with these old machines
I am unable to save the bios changes for it to boot from cd or floppy so If anyone has any idears

So you are saying you cant save the CMOS settings in the bios?

Can you access the bios settings at all?

I can change settings but it won't allow me to save the settings at all, so I can't tell the computer to boot from disk or cd as it won't save my options any idears on a work around I want to get pass the first log on screen tothe cojmputer but can't get passed that hense why I wanted to use my cd password cracker software however I can't get the cd to run I can select for the computer to run from harddrive but that still doesn't get me passed the screen but their may be another way anyway I hope so
