    A friend of mine bought a box of used laptops from a business auction. The laptops are Dells and was not reformated before they was sold, well when you turn them on, its asking for a password, well we didnt get any passwords for them, the laptops are running win 2000, and I went into the bios and the Config Setup page is also disabled. Does any body know a way around this, some help would be great.

    Thanks

    Format the harddrive and re-install windows is the only way youre gonna get around that.

    unless you care what is on the hdd's, just make a set of w2k boot disks with format and fdisk on them, boot to command prompt and format the drives. all corporate hdd's are locked w/admin passwords and you need them to access anything on the drives.
