Alright We've got past the BIOS Password and really appreciate your help.

What I did was take out the battery and let it set for 20 minutes and move every wire I could find that matched your discriptions... I think that killed the motherboard memory. What a good trick! :flowers:

Now I see he has put a Password on Windows Start Up... Great. Now we are locked-out of Windows.

At least now I can reformat the hard drive. :trumpet:

Lastly - I have a fresh 4 foot 2x4 in the garage and will be looking for him at the end of the evening. :thumbsup:

Now that you're past the BIOS use Safe Mode to log in as administartor and reset the password

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.


If that doesnt work you will need to reset the Admin password:
