Scott,

I was asked to clean up an old TravelMate C102Ti that I need to work on but it has a password protecting the only account (the default Admin account for XP) on the machine. I wanted to follow your advice on how to remove a Windows password, but this machine doesn't have an optical drive or a floppy drive. So, what is the best way to do this?

The quickest solution would be to attach a USB optical drive and use it to boot the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor CD. The CD version can also be installed on a USB drive, see the readme.txt file on the CD for instructions. Scott.

Well I'm already part of the way there. I already have the appropriate disc ready but I wasn't sure if a USB optical drive would cause any issues in this case.

Next step is to get the drive. Do you have a reliable one from newegg readily bookmarked?

For bench use I recommend drive/enclosure combos that use standard (not slim) 5.25" drives, as in that case the drive alone can easily be replaced later, plus I've found the standard size drives to be more reliable than the slim (laptop style) versions. For field use I'd go with a slim version as they are so much easier to carry. Scott.
