    if you bought it used, you will have to ask the previous owner.

    Where did you buy it from?

    no way we can assist with that. If you don't know the previous user's setup, the only way you can get around that is installing a fresh copy of xp and formatting it with your credentials.

    Also, sometimes the default password is (nothing) just hit the enter key when prompted for password.

    adida, we do not assist with those types of password crackers.

    As this thread has reached it's conclusion with regards to what we can do in assistance with the password, I'm going to close this.

    thanks,
