IBM think pad 600 has w98 software used to have 2 passwords on boot up before it let you in.
loaned machine to friend tried changing password. Yep lost 1 password and will not boot up.
accepts 2nd password and will show hard drive directory C:DIR
It has an external Cd drive but it is not recognised.
accepts floppies.
It will run scan disk and says disk drive ok
QUESTION is there a boot program I can use or does hard drive need to be sent for reprog as a has dealer suggested?? Regards
Allan
