OK, I'm tired of being nice.  You must not even read my replies, so I'll make sure you read this one.

TO USE YOUR ROM IN WINDOWS YOU NEED TO BE AN ADMIN, YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE AN ADMIN TO INSTALL IT.  INSTALLING IT MEANS SLIDING IT IN THE DRIVE BAY, NOTHING ELSE.  HOW DO I KNOW THIS?  I WORK AT A UNIVERSITY WHERE I DEAL WITH THESE SHITTY LAPTOPS ALL THE TIME.  IF YOU INSTALL THE DRIVE AND USE A FUCKING LIVECD, LIKE YOU'VE BEEN ADVISED TO DO ABOUT 4 TIMES NOW, YOU CAN BOOT FROM THE CD AND BYPASS WINDOWS ALTOGETHER YOU TWIT.  YOU'RE PHYSICALLY INSTALLING THE CD-ROM AND THAT ONLY REQUIRES  YOU, THE DUMB USER, TO STICK THE DRIVE IN AND BOOT THE LAPTOP AND BOOT FROM A CD.  HOW DOES THIS REQUIRE ADMIN PRIVS??????  IT DOESN'T, YOU'RE JUST STUPID.  IF YOU ACTUALLY READ THE REPLIES IN THIS THREAD ALONE, YOU'D REALIZE WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AND YOU DO NOT.

AMEN BROTHA!!! The whole time I was reading that I was feeling like I was saying it. God that felt good to get out lol

I must agree, just saying " IN ORDER TO USE ROMS ON MY LAPTOP I NEED TO BE AN ADMIN" and to the extent it was used, is VERY rude... not only that arrogent due the fact he knows he cant be flamed. Nube question or not, if some one is rude and arrogent to me no matter the circumstances I will tell the to fuck off.

OK guys, we've dispensed out justice on this thread, and thusly, we should stop talking about certain people's posts.

If you want to continue talking about H@x0r1ng t3h XP, feel free, but if you guys just talk about peoples posts, we'll lock it.

:cry: You guys just dont understand. Iv tried that but it did not work. Iv said in more then once in order to use a floppy and/or Disk drive i need to have admin right. Even if i stick it in the bay it does not work. :cry: You guys are so mean....

P.S what happens when my rating goes to three?

Are you saying that the bios boot order boots the hard drive before anything else? If that is the case you'll need to go into the bios (try f2, delete, or look for the onscreen message as to how to enter the bios) and change the boot order.

A warn level of 3 will lead to a ban.

Okay, when you say you have put a CD in the CD-ROM drive, and it did not work, had you already started the computer? Okay, if you have downloaded one of those ISO and burned it to a disc, first check the disc; if there is only one large file on the entire disc and that file ends in .iso, then you have done it wrong. Okay, if there is more than one file (usually lots of directories and maybe a README.txt), then you have done it right. :voteyes: Now, keep the CD in the CD-ROM drive and reboot the computer. If you see some screen you have never seen before, (it might look something like this then everything is hunky dory. If Windows boots up, then you will have to edit the BIOS. To edit the BIOS, reboot the computer and keep hitting F2 until either you enter a funky looking screen. Now, if some ugly looking screen pops up, you are in the BIOS. If you are prompted for a password, then you have to deal with getting or removing the password, in which case this link might be useful. Otherwise just explore the BIOS until you get to the menu that controls the boot menu. Then set the CD-ROM drive (NOTE: it may be referred to as CD, removable media, CD-ROM, optical disk, or optical media) to boot before the hard drive. Then make sure to SAVE YOUR CHANGES. Then just restart with the CD still in the CD-ROM drive and everything will be hunky dory.

EDIT: According to tehbizz, you should press F2 to enter the BIOS

EDIT: Added URL for BIOS Passwords. Do Dell BIOS's have any of these Backdoor BIOS Passwords?

to enter Dell's BIOS, you press F2. Typically to change the boot order you can hit F12 for a one time change and F3 for PXE booting.

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.

the "general administrator account" will most definately be password protected, because i beleve that is the account he is looking for the pass for.....dotdotdot

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.com/forums/index.php?sho...ndpost&p=150811. Then read this one: http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php?sho...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.
