I have a Compaq 4120 (old model) that I dug out of the closet to mess with. Well, the keyboard won't respond to anything. After reviewing the manual, I think there is a problem with the PC being in Quicklock mode...for some reason or another. I haven't ever initiated the QL mode, or provided a password for it. Question..is there a way to bypass it? A local friend told me that you may have to disassemble the unit to reset it. The 'Geek Squad' told me I have to bring it in..as was expected. Anyway, any ideas as to what I may do to fix this? I'm wanting to nuke it, and install WINXP, as it's set up with.......'95 for crying out loud!!
I've tried to boot with Darik's to start over, but it won't recognize it.
