First of reset bios to default.
you can can use any xp disk as long as you have cd key(any valid cd key for that matter)and install fresh copy (factory set/default)
eg I have 4 laptops and a tower pc all of which I have xp pro installed from same disk and same key +sp3 and ie8 and nav360

My Dell CPi D266XT will not power up. The light on the power cord is flashing green. When I push the power button nothing happens. None of the lights flicker like it's even trying to come on.


Hi,

It is possible that the other end of your power adaptor is defective or just loose. Tighten it securely and try to test if it is emitting voltages by using a multi-tester.

It can also be that there is a problem with the connection form your power adaptor going to the main board of your laptop.

This is a very technical problem so I suggest you let a laptop technician look at it.

Hope it helps.

Thanks!

How do i restore to factory settings without disk?


I assume you mean factory installation. You need the disks. Unless there is a recovery partition, unlikely on this model. Alternatively you could find an oem windows xp home or professional depending on what coa sticker is on the laptop and install that.

Hi , If you have forgotten the BIOS Password there is only one way either you give your PC to an expert or you need to open the PC and reset the jumper in the motherboard.
