Password problem I recently bought a Dell Latitude CPi A, however it has an admin password on it. The guy claims he doesn't remember the password so there's no way to get into it. It won't read CDs or Floppy disks at start up because the boot order isn't set up for it (I guess anyway). The boot order is 1: Floppy, 2: HardDrive, 3: CD-Rom, and I can't change it with out the admin password. That means I can't reformat or reinstall.
