Default power on password is on

Well, then. Let's see. Would you rather have an accurate response top-posted
or a half-baked and ignorant response bottom posted? Let's exercise some value
judgements here... Ben Myers

Balderdash! If you don't know what the computer is, do a little research before
posting a response, almost invariably followed by your obsessive cluttering of
the newsgroups scolding people not to top-post.

A mindless google search turned up "Software & Driver downloads Compaq Presario
6027US DESKTOP PC". Capitals are mine for emphasis. It took me less time than
it took you to respond and then send your top-posting canned message!

If this is a laptop, you can't change it without the co-operation
of the manufacturer, which will also involve convincing them that
you own it.

When I worked at Compaq - had to SEND IT IN - they would wipe it
- OS to factory ( or maybe just tossed the old drive ?). So if
you NEED the data, remove the disk, install into a desktop pc as
second drive and backup before sending back ( ASK them while on
the phone)

It is a desktop, not a notebook.

So you can ignore my caution. But please do not top-post. Your
answer belongs after (or intermixed with) the quoted material to
which you reply, after snipping all irrelevant material. I fixed
this one. See the following links:
