  • Unable to get administrator password due to not having Windows 2000 CD-ROM

    Hello. I just got my Dell Insprion 3800 w/ Windows 2000 Pro a few days ago from someone. There is a User Name and Password I cannot figure out in order to log into my computer. I asked the previous owner, but he doesn't know the password. I have called Dell Computers and they said that I need a Windows CD-ROM in order to reboot the computer. Unfortunately, I cannot find a single soul that has one nor I have the money to go get one or go to someone to get it fixed (I'm a poor college student). I also went to Technical support at my school with this problem but they cannot work on my laptop due to security agreements they made with the college (It'll cost them their job!!). I tried to do the instructions on the website, but with no prevail. Can you please give a solution to this problem?

    Thank you for reading!

    Have you tried every solution suggested at this link? http://forums.petri.com/showthread.php?t=2438

    Have you tried typing Administrator with no password at the logon screen?
    Is there a logon screen or an icon with the Users name?
