Your mocs cell waltage goes down. CMOS cell gives power to bios flash memory when it goes to low bios forgot settings after power off. So purchase new CMOS cell it is on motherbord change it then save settings then it not forgot settings even after power off.

If you mean Bios password try this:
Resetting the BIOS PSSWRD, Open the computer case and look inside on the motherboard. Dell has diagrams of this. Locate the Little Jumper. It should have small print if you can read on the mother board indicating PSSWRD CLR. Boot the computer to Setup. Carefully remove jumper, becareful of static, and then once removed hit enter. Shutdown the computer, and restart and enter Setup again F2. The password should be CLR. Turn OFF and PUT Jumper back into place and Turn Back ON. You should be able to access Setup.
If you then boot to setup-check your hard drives and floppy that are seen. You may solve those issues in setup.
If you mean the windows password: boot to F8 safe mode and log
on to the ADMINISTRATOR not your log in that has admin rights.
Disable all passwords and restart.
Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot

You have to change the boot order at the bios settings. Just after the screen comes up, before windows start up press (repeatly) the F2 key (depending on the model, maybe F1 or del key) and go to the boot sequence. Here change the boot order as you wish.

Hi, try to check your pc's cmos setup on boot sequence, you would be needing to set the sequence to boot the system on CD drive first then your hardrive; then disable boot virus protection - this will make your OS installation with no interruption. Then save your cmos changes. you have to put your operating system program installer on your cd drive then watch the message to boot from your cd drive. hope this helps.
