  1. OK so I have windows XP running on a Gateway Tablet PC. I recently somehow lost my admin pass to login into windows. There are no drivers installed and nowi cant reinstall the OS because it doesnt recognize the hardrive without the drivers. I have the BOIS pass.. What can i do?

    Have you tried going in under "Administrator" through safe mode or is that the same password as whatever user you lost the password for?
