Restart your computer
have a close look at the screen it will be quick you will see which key to press to enter bios

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

I'm locked out forgot password

If you can tell me what the Os do you use, it could be must better.

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

Dell Dimension 5150. After bost my computer, I can the accounts icons on the screen, but I cannot slect the icon by mouse because all USB port did not work.

You can try this. On the log-on screen where you see your Account Icons try pressing ctrl alt delete. Some windows XP are configured that if ctrl+alt+delete are pressed on the lon-on screen the classic log-on screen window will appear, where you can type your username and password thus eliminating the use of the mouse.

If the Computer turns ON and the CD/DVD drive gets power then first, remove the disc from the drive. Then, turn off the Computer, disconnect the AC Adaptor, remove the Battery pack and clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the Battery compartment.
Next, press and hold the power button on the Computer for 30 seconds.
Then, reinsert the Battery pack in the Computer then connect the AC Adaptor and turn the Computer ON.
This will resolve the issue.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good day sir/maam, the reson why it froze is caused by a bad memory module, you may need to replace it. Open up your computer and locate the memory modules, remove all memory modules and bring it to a computer vendor for testing. or if you have the cash, better buy a new one. make sure that what you install on your PC be it tested or new is good.

Cursor frozen and cannot cut the computer off or move the cursor

Ok try to boot in native DOS if the unit still froze. If it froze then check your memory card, reseat or clean it with soft eraser only its edge connector. Do this when battery is disconnected and no any other power source is connected to the unit.

Then if it run native DOS. If you can backup your important files, installation code. This will end restoring your unit to restore factory, do you have your restore disc?

Or you can try first to run in safe mode/repair options. Check if it can do some system restore.
