Question about Dell XPS 400 PC Desktop
When the computer booting it is asking for the system password. Where do I find it.
You can't find it, if it's a BIOS password, you're totally out of luck.
if it's a windows password, then there are options.

Both the system password and the BIOS password are set in the BIOS CMOS. You need to clear the CMOS.
The online Dell service manual for the XPS 400 provides a clear and detailed procedure for clearing the CMOS. It's just a matter of moving some jumpers around:
If you are not used to working inside computers, start with "Removing the computer cover", then go to "System Setup" and click on "Clearing Forgotten Passwords".
Another method is to unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for a 1/2 hour or so. For details on how to do that, try this website:
