Firs of all, I'm not sure if this is where I need to post this. If not, I apologize and could an Administrator please move it to the correct location.

Ok, here it is...I have an XP machine that I don't have the password to. One solution would have been to use NT Password to bypass/remove it, but the CDROM doesn't work. The other solution would have been to login to the default Administrator account (blank password) but a password has been set for that account. My question is, if I take the HD out and connect to another computer via external dock, is there a way to remove/reset the password that way? Thanks.

No need to wait for an Administrator. Just check the Rules:

Passwords - Please do not ask for assistance with (or ways to bypass) a forgotten or unknown password, personal identification number (PIN) or any other type of access code that may be required on a computer, mobile device or web site. As there is no way to verify the actual situation or intent, no assistance will be provided and any such threads will be closed.
