Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

Password done as dell booklet said, removed connector on motherboard to change password, but still brings up admin an password. Is this password for bio or window password???????? it does'nt say Jim


Answers :

Jim,
\015\012
\015\012As stated you are talking about two different passwords. Bios password would be at the begining of boot up and accessing the bios from hitting F2 or DEL or some key combo during boot.
\015\012
\015\012The windows password would be needed when you attempt to log onto your computer. This screen will have the windows logo and an icon for the user name.
\015\012
\015\012You said it brings up Admin and password, I assume that you are looking at the windows login screen with the admin name requesting a password to log on.
