Hi I have a old Networked Company nobr> a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,73026);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(73026);">Computer /a> /nobr> running on Windows NT 4.0. I am upgrading it at the moment but have come across one problem. After finally getting the system to recognise the new CD-Drive. tried to install Windows 2K. However I get the message, nobr> a class="iAs" style="border-bottom:darkgreen 1px solid;text-decoration:underline;color:darkgreen;background-color:transparent;" href="#" onclick="return kwC();" target="_blank" oncontextmenu="return false;" onmouseover="kwE(event,64498);" onmouseout="kwL(event);" onmousemove="kwM(64498);">access /a> /nobr> denied only the Administrator can can do it. I dont have the foggiest what the Admins Log in is or how to get around this problem any ideas would be gratefully received otherwise it will a real waste of a good computer.

Many Thanks All

Where did you copy that query from?

Open the PC and see what mobo is in it; then find the mobo manual on the net and find out how to reset the BIOS password.

Otherwise get a bootable floppy and format the hdd.
