my employer donated a pc to me for my son's Boy Scout troop. They took off anything important but left the profiles, os, and windows. However, I can't log in. There is still the windows xp log on screen. There isn't a place for the domain but there is a user name and password and nothing works.

How can I get pass this screen to make this pc useful for the troop.

BIOS or Operating System's passwords are there for the purpose related to Security and Privacy to protect the legitimate owner of a machine. While there are many locations on the Internet that might help you learn about managing passwords for a machine's BIOS or Operating System, we at G2G do not assist in bypassing past a machine's Security and Privacy safeguards.

While such requests are often legitimate, and come from users who experience exactly the kind of problem that you post, we have no way of determining legitimate vs. not legitimate, therefore we do not respond to such requests.

Pursuant to the Terms of use guidlines as followed:
"Due to the nature of online help we are not able to verify ownership, and will not be able to help bypass or recover any Windows user passwords, cd keys, license codes, serial numbers, etc."

However we can assist you with a reinstallation if that is what you wanted.

Just to add to this. If you have a cd of the os that is installed on the system IE xp home or pro, and have the original reg key. If the system is a name brand like dell, compaq, gateway the reg key is usually on a sticker on the side of the system. If you have these or can borrow a cd with the same OS version as what was originally on the system then we can assist you in formatting and reinstalling .

As stated by rshaffer, we can't help you bypass the password. I'm closing the thread.
