Question about Computers & Internet
May be a virus, you can try going into safe mode amd doing a system restore, just tap f8 key when you first it on and keep repeatedly tapping it until you get to a screen that has a list of commands then go to safe mode, and it should direct you to another screen with a bunch of info, and then it should ask you if you wanna do a system restore, and just select a month when your computer was doing fine. GOOD LUCK.

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low or missing voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

SOURCE: Bios default password
The BIOS default password is just blank, and it is not asked.
When you set a bios password, you are asked to enter a value, therefore if bios is asking the password, the password had been changed.
To reset the bios password if you do not know the password you need to access to motherboard and temporarily remove battery for few seconds.
Removing battery will reset bios and delete the password.
Unplug power cord before accessing the motherboard, and try not touching the motherboard with your finger.
Put battery back in place before restarting computer.

You can configure your boot setup from your bios screen (for dell, either F11 or F12) then set up your optical drive as your 1st priority then, save settings. After that, you need to insert your windows XP cd in order for it to boot.
inform me of what happened after you have done this.
