My mother bought 2 computers from the thrift store. Both are gateway 2000 with windows 2000 professional edition. We do not have the user's name or password to log on. What can we do? Please don't tell me to down load. I can't download if I can't get in. I am currently using my other computer with windows 98. Any ideas beside me taking it to the shop and then I don't know how much that will cost. :tazz:

don't know why, but I find that amusing...

That would be neat to see what is on there.

First, did you try with NO Password?

Second, try PASSWORD and password

Third, do you have a cd-burner on the windows 98machine?

Have you posted one even remotely helpful/constructive/non-inflammatory post since you signed up? Why bother speaking at all?
