When turning on xp requests password and wont let me start. I had no
problems at first on purchasing from private sale and original owner has
moved. Have considered re setting to factory setting but will loose a lot of
information.

Can anyone suggest a way around having to input password or a solution on
how to delete or reset password.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Ray

If it has only an Administrator Account and you are the Administrator, just
leave the Password blank and press on. You can change the Administrator
Account in: Start>Control Panel>User Accounts>Pick an Account to Change.

You might want to try these links:

It has helped me a lot to reset machines stolen from offices and universities. No need to delete the OS!!! Also, you can pry into peoples' habits and private documents!!!

This is from Kev (the fat b@stard) so it must be correct!!
