    Hi Night stalker and welcome to the TS Forum :wave:

    Which is it, the hard drive password or the admin password, both can be set, but one (the Harddrive) password cant be removed, the other can be removed with my software, you can use a floppy version (you dont say if you dont have a floppy) there is a USB key version (only works if your laptop supports booting from a USB device) or you can build a bootable hard drive.

    Post back and let me know or visit the site in my Tag

    In that case your going to need to use the shorting method as instructed on the site, as for the hard drive there is nothing I can do for you, there is an online company that can do it for a charge, details on the site.

    There are also 2 threads on this site with advice from other posters that may be of help.
