Is your laptop the only computer you have? If so, I would say to wait for your CD-ROM drive to be fixed or get a new one; a brand new CD burner is only $20. http://www.newegg.co...Submit=Property

Start Windows in Safe Mode. Access the general ADMINISTRATOR account that is open and have a blast changing whatever you want.

If I am reading everything correctly, you are able to boot with a floppy, but not the CD ROM drive. If so, go to the following URL and download their utility to reset the admin password.

http://www.loginrecovery.com/

Follow their instructions and you should have the admin password within minutes.

I honestly cannot remember when the last time I bought floppy disks. Normally I take old ones and reformat them.

About the floppies... It really doesnt matter.

A few things:

please try not to make post after your posts, use the edit button and add it.

and

Seriously, you are a senior, grow up. I'm a softmore and havnt acted like that in years.

Hacking is about learning, learning takes pacience(sp?).

People here are trying to help you, so the more information you give us that isnt fragmented and mysterious the better.

Like others have said, Boot up before windows loads push f2, or del, and post what happens here, along with a list of which drives are working and which you have rights to.

What exactly is required to start Windows XP in Safe Mode? Can you just hold F8 or something and get full access to the computer?

No F2 for system controls, F12 (i think) for boot order. My computer has restrictions its not going to be that easy.

Right after the POST, you should be able to press F5 or F8. That is when it should let you into safe mode. I have not seen a computer so locked down that safe mode would not work.

Um, go back exactly ONE page of this thread and read this reply: http://www.binrev.co...ndpost&p=150811. Then read this one: http://www.binrev.co...ndpost&p=150797. These two replies alone tell you exactly what you need to do to: boot into BIOS and/or possibly change a BIOS password if there is one.

What's so difficult about that? Dells have no backdoor BIOS passwords or tricks and if they do, their tech support hasn't told me yet. As much help that has been doled out, I don't understand why this is such a difficult process.

press f8 right before the windows splashscreen, move to safe mode, press enter. no u cant get full access if the owner of the computer set the administrator password(in this case, the school wouldve set the admin pass, thats what hes tryin to crack) :P anyways once your in safe mode u can log in as administrator and no password, if the owner hasnt set it.

If you press F12 for boot order, what options do you have?

What are you talking about needing admin privs to install a cd-rom? the only thing you have to do is stick the little bastard into the laptop. if its not working, your not doing it right, try again. if you are talking about needing admin pass to get into bios to change the boot order, then read about changing bios passwords (google?) you dont need to be able to access the cd-rom inside of windows to be able to boot into a live-cd. if you cant access it inside of windows, it doesnt mean that its not installed or not working. burn a live cd, such as puppy linux, and then put it into the cd-rom. restart the computer, change the bios so the cd-rom boots before everything else, and then reboot again and you should be in linux unless you burned the cd wrong. burn it again. okay it didnt work. one more time. there you go. now boot into linux. there. (ill go ahead and make you a how to use linux thread)

I can get into safe mode. Iv tried to access the admin pass there but it is password protected so i cant just push enter.

P.S Today i will jot down everything i can and cant do in a waltrough format and post it.
