Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

HP Compaq Presario C5170 Desktop

\015 I have an old computer I want to give away to my child's pre-school. I went to get on it and take off my very old stuff, but when attempting to log in, I had the problem of a forgotten password???\015\012\015\012I thought there was a jumper on the mother board that can be moved to remove the password protection scheme, and I can't remember how to do it nor can I find an online manual. Compaq gave me the boot due to how old the PC is. What do you recommend as a solution whether it be a jumper or some other means to get around this problem???\015\012\015\012Thank you Chuck\015
