Can't get into HP ProtectTools on HP Mini

Toninmd asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-17
Please help. I have an HP Mini and I was giving it to a friend. I put her in the Administrators group and deleted my profile. Now I can't get into the system with either password. Hers or mine. Can someone please help. There is no F8 key to get into safe mode or any F key for that matter. Is this a hopeless case and I should throw the dang thing away? Thanks.
