  4. Remove the 2-pin jumper plug.

  6. Move the 2-pin jumper plug from the password jumper to pins into the CMOS jumper.

How do I delete or reset a new system password, and a HDD password so that I can set a administrator password on a optiplex 390 i5 window 7.?


If you do not have the current passwords, it's going to be a bit of a problem. The BIOS password mostly. Contact Dell Support: http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/optiplex-390/pd Perhaps they will give you a one-time BIOS password. If it's a login password, you could try a Full Factory Recovery. If someone put the passwords in , I would ask them, that's the easiest way.

I need ethernet drivers for dell optiplex 390 running on win 7 ultimate please


Try dell's site. If they don't have window's 7 drivers, try the vista drivers.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "DellSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Network drivers.
You can also try Driver Guide at:
