I have a Dell Latitude D630 with Windows XP Professional that I bought at a government auction. I was assured no sensitive data was still on the machine. I haven't been able to boot from external drive, USB, or CD/DVD. I have queried multiple web sites for possible work-around to no avail. Any solution short of replacing the hard-drive is welcome. Is it possible there is some sort of disk encryption software present? if so, how do i deal with this?

Hi :) 

If its Government level encryption...drop it in nearest bin and buy a new hard drive...

Its against Toms rules to assist any further... so will close this thread now...

All the best Brett :)
