Cannot access System BIOS from a Windows XP Pro laptop, since it is secured by an unknown Administrator Password.
I purchased a Compaq Presario X1000 laptop from Goodwill Industries. It has Windows XP Pro installed and is secured by an unknown Administrator Password. When I try to access System BIOS at startup, it asks for the administrator password and denies access. How
can I remove this password and get to the BIOS settings? Everything I have tried so far has failed. Please advise.
