My mother gave me a computer that I could use in my classroom for my students. I think I did something real stupid when I was going through and fixing things up a bit (or so I thought). She gave me a Dell Dimension XPS B733 computer that she bought sometime between 2000- 2002. I have on it Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional NT. It has been working fine untill I went into the User Name and Password area. I checked the box that says I need to put in a password along with the screen name (there is one all ready on it, my moms name). Now when I start tyhe computer I have to put in a password to get to the start up page. My mom dosn't remember it (or she thinks she does but it isn't working). Did I just loose a perfectly old but good computer? Is there a way I can still get into the start up page? HELP!!!! I promise never to play with things I shouldn't any more!
Thank you all for you help.

Howdy and welcome to GTG:

Sorry, but we don't assist with hacking/cracking passwords. Your request may be genuine but we have no way of determining that. Even still, should we assist you in this, that information could be used by others with more nefarious thoughts.

Your best bet now would be to reformat and re-install Windows.
