    What does the BIOS have to do with windows XP logon Password?

    Anyways try logon as Administrator (hint press ctrl-alt-delete to bring up logon box if you use the welcolm screen)

    What you have to do is logon as admin and remove his password.

    Try as ariel has said, press alt-ctrl-del at the login screen (think u tap it twice) then type administrator for username, and if it is an oem computer or windows xp home then the password is nothing, if it is self made or windows xp pro then the password will be whatever your friend made that when he installed windows.

    once in, go to user accounts, delete his user account, then recreate it.

    or if that doesn't work becuase he doesn't know admin password either (he should really start writing these things down if he can't remember), then he can try a repair install of windows.
