I have a Dell d620 laptop that is currently installed with a corporate build of Windows 2000 that requires "administrator" to amend most of the settings on it. [Yes, it was issued to me by a previous employer. Although technically still their property, they are overseas and have indicated that they are not about to make arrangements to come and collect it. As its cluttering up my house, I might as well get some use out of it until someone turns up to claim it.] I'd quite like to re-install it with Windows XP, but of course do not have any OEM disks with the d620 drivers, etc. If I go out and buy a retail copy of XP, will it: (a) install straight over the existing W2K; (b) load enough drivers to be able to get the laptop in workable condition to the point where I can download stuff - ie booted up/ display on/ keyboard and mouse working/ LAN port working? (I assume that, if the laptop can get online, I'll be able to download any missing drivers from Dell.) Alternatively, is there (c) a way of bypassing or switching off the (absent) administrator controls?
