Default getting security off a lap top.

Since this lapttop im getting is from my dads work (Genral motors) they just gave it to him cause they all got new ones. Now their is a hell of alot of security on it, and we cant load anything on and stuff like that so if we just installed a new harddrive would everything work fine?

Why don't you format the current drive?

Plop in WinXP CD and you're ready to go
