Good morning folks,
I have a spare computer that I recently received from a friend who works IT for a hotel chain. I am installed Windows XP on it. The computer worked fine. I then installed Service Pack 2 and now all of the USB ports are disabled.
Here is the fun stuff:
1. The keyboard and mouse must be hooked up through the USB ports. There are no individual ports for the keyboard and mouse; USB connection only.
2. There is no CD drive.
3. The BIOS is locked and I have no clue as to what the Admin password is.
4. The other bootup options of Windows 2000 and NT station will not boot - this is the reason I installed Windows XP.
Since it was a fresh install on the hard drive, I was going to move it to another computer (co-worker's) and do a re-install from there via bootup through CD. But, his computer has a password on the BIOS (which he does not know) and the computer is set to boot from hard drive and then CD if nothing is found on hard drive.
Any suggestions besides pulling out what little hair I have left?
Thanks for any help.
Edit: Thanks for the title edit KoanYorel; greatly appreciated.
