3. It is password protected once fixed, anyway a new user can use it?

1. Yes, find the model number and looks up the specs on google.
2. Yes, pull out the hard drive maybe.
3. They could always do a fresh reinstall which would wipe the drive, and take off all the password protection.

Remove the HDD and sell it as spares/repairs. :)

Have you tried the manufacturers website, sometimes they have a search feature which includes a serial number search which should be more accurate

Remove hard drive and buy or borrow a usb to IDE/SATA adapter, copy what you want off and then format the HDD to a secure stadard.

1. Get make and model number and search for spec. as vengod says.If you don't have access to a computer, your public library probably has a small network for public use.
2. Presuming it is a windows machine,(and you don't say), if you have a working optical drive you might be able to see and access your C drive through a linux live disk if you can obtain one; but you don't say how broken your machine is so it's difficult to say.
3. Passwords on resident OSs can be discovered running password crackers from an optical disk.

That's THREE questions!

3. It depends on what the password it for, it's usually possible to remove most of them but obviously the user has to find out how.

You can wipe the password with this

And yes, take out the drive and connect it to a working PC so you can delete whatever you want off there.

I cant get it to turn on as the pin connector (if thats what its called) that the charger goes into is broken, I have 2 laptops with the same problem, something tells me I am being a bit rough with them!

Rep on the way thanks guys :thumbsup:
