Dell Inspiron N4030 asking me for BIOS password, i dont even rember making one.....I cant Boot to install a new version of Windows and I'm getting P-Offed!! Help please


You may have to find the reset disk or may have to do a clean instal in which case is not fun however
If there was no passowrd created by you always remember to go the easies route >>> My advice look @ the operation manual if no luck then at that point you will have to >>>>> ; )
Dell XP = Ctrl+F11Dell Vista = F8
EEEPC = Esc
Compaq = F11
HP Desktop Vista = F11
Emachine = F10
Acer = Alt+F10

Every manufacture has or uses different Function Key combinations to do a Factory Default Recovery. Also if it didn't come with disks there is normally a program in the menus to create your own set of recovery CDs. This must be done before you ever put anything on the recovery partition d: , if you used d: for anything you need to remove what you put there or the recovery will not function.
