Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Buying Used Pc but cannot get pass password

\015 I have been offered a Pc , along with a monitor,desktop, photocopier, printer and chair for \302\24325 but the trouble is the person selling it has not got any books for it on how to set it up, and he has forgot the password which comes on as soon as it loads and I cannot get past this first page. There is also no disc for it, it is I am told on windows xp. The first page displays warning cpu has been changed please re-enter cpu settings in the cmos set up and save before quit.\015

Answers :

FYI, I know this is an old posting but you don't have to go to Dell Tech Support for password reset, just reset the CMOS password jumpers inside the computer. Not a difficult task at all, refer to the owner's manual for details on opening the computer, and for resetting the jumpers. Very easy solution, had to do it myself. Manuals for locating jumpers usually can be found online. Good luck.
