Windows XP/Admin password.
I have an old Paradigit performer P318 desktop, os is windows xp home edition, it is used only for games in a home for the handicapped but well used, Problems started a while ago and so I decided to take it back to factory settings using the recovery partition F10 but sadly this will not respond, I have tried to find solutions via the internet but no luck, added problem is that we do not have an administrators password, is there any solution to this problem and if I get windows xp home edition on a disc can I reinstall without the original admin password?
Any reps or advise welcome.
