    Hay everyone,

    I have a Dell latitude CPi laptop, which I bought from another
    person. Week ago, I wanted to do a clean installation; therefore, I
    formatted the hard drive from a boot disk and inserted the CDROM with the
    bootable windows CD in it. Someone has messed with the BIOS. I can't change
    the boot sequence. I've tried using latitude.exe and the other password
    identifiers. They didn't work. I disconnected the CMOS battery. It still
    doesn't work. What should I do? I need master passwords for config password
    and admi password. Post the reply here or email me.

    PLS anyone help me. I have a lot of homework to do.

    Thank you.

    It's actually pretty simple. Just call Dell and provide proof of ownership
    and they'll give you the password.

  4. From your statement, it obviously boots from a floppy disk. What about
    using the Windows setup disks to complete your OS installation?

    It won't solve your password problem, but it will get you up and running.
