Laptop Passwords

Post by Alby on Sun Feb 05, 2017 9:54 pm

Hi You wonderful, all knowing, Einsteins of the computer world.... enough brown nosing ?

I fished out a couple of the girls old laptops from up in the garage roof space or attic type of mess area...
The machines had issues and lost favour with my daughters....

Toshiba with XP

Compaq with Vista.

Both around 10 or 12 years old.

They turn on ok but each come up with 3 logins as they were shared between the girls.
Yes I have full permission to access .... they thought the machines had gone to god'.
trouble is passwords.... they have been forgotten and the tips don't help.
I'm planning on wiping the drives and use them to play music at work.. worst case scenario... take the drives out put in a case and use as portable HDD.
Back to the problem..... How can I bypass the login screen?

Any ideas ?
