First of all, all communication in EE is done here, not through email. Everybody should be able to participate in the discussion.

Devices like yours are installed in schools to prevent students from changing system settings permanently. The only person who should be able to change the behaviour of the card is a teacher. Please provide us evidence that you are the real owner of the system, then somebody might be able to provide help. The easiest way to get into your card settings would be to talk to your vendor (be careful, they might want to have proof, too!)
If you are a student, it wouldn't be ethical to help you to crack a system your school installed.

For those who don't know the system, take a look at http://www.lodestar.co.uk/new.htm where you can see how it works ...

I have never heard of such a piece of hardware.  What is the OS?  What type of computer?  Why the resistance to removing the card?

In spite of Griessh's suggestion, I believe the points should go to Griessh.  Even if it is not for the correct answer, it would be for good and useful info.

The placing of the question in PAQ at zero points retains the valued information, makes it widely available to others without charge, and through Griessh's comments reinforces the policies and practices of EE to the advantage of the community.  

Thanks for your support of your fellow expert and to Griessh for the generous donation.
