Dell optiplex gx110, boots up asking for password

I got a desktop dell free from a yard sale, model DCM Optiplex GX110,windows 2000. I boot it up and it goes into asking for password from the DOS. I press the F2 for system set up, I unplugged the hard drive, disk drive, and floppy, also changed the memory cards but it still asks. It must be in the mother board. How do I constructively repair just to start it up or what do I need to do to bypass the bootup password window please?

To clear CMOS RAM, turn off the machine, and place jumper W2 on pins 2-3. Wait five seconds, then replace it on pins 1-2. DO NOT TURN ON THE MACHINE WHILE W2 IS SET ON 2-3 BECAUSE THIS CAN DAMAGE THE SYSTEM BOARD. If that doesn't work then pull the cmos battery insert it upside down and wait a few and reverse

Near the hard drive plug on the motherboard there is a jumper and next to it it should say PSWD. Remove the jumper and the password is gone.

Can I install windows on my dell optiplex gx110 using flash drive(USB)?


I would say yes, as long as you can get it boot from the USB. Check BIOS. Are installing you Win 95, 98, or XP? I ask because the manual has reference to Y2K.

You just want to keep it as a Linux box. Have Fun!

Generally an indication that the Hard Drive isn't detected
Things to check, go to BIOS F2, reset defaults and reboot, see if the HDD is seen. If it is, the battery on the motherboard is likely dead and needs replacement (Watch battery at Walmart, 3 dollars)
If the HDD doesn't detect after resetting the BIOS, then most likely a Hard Drive failure

Dell Optiplex GX110 will not come on when I press button but i hear clicking sound is there any way I can fix this problem?


A gx110 is pretty much uneconomically repairable. If the system is powering on, getting video but not booting, then the clicking is likely the hard drive. Of you are not getting any video, then post what the Power LED and the diag LEDs on the back of the tower indicate.
