    I have an old gateway 2000 laptop. Someone just gave to me along with a bunch of other parts and such. People just give me computer stuff all the time. The problem is. It still runs good and everything. It could be worth 100$ or something to me. But this thing is locked up so tight with system passwords and such. I can't even get in it to reformat the sucker. My friend said something about a disk that just wipes everything .. even the system information. Either way i need to know how to get into this thing, or it bacomes a paper weight.:mad:

    I'd contact the person who gave it to you for the passwords. For us to give you information on how to get around the passwords that protect the system would, I think, be a violation of the boards rules. Obviously we have no way of knowing if this was intended to be cracked.
