On desktops this is usually straight forward: if you're comfortable with opening your PC up you can out a small battery (a "coin battery", the kind that go in watches) -- this is the CMOS battery. Take out the battery and wait a couple seconds then put it back in exactly the way it was (facing the same direction). This will remove the password as well as reset any CMOS settings.

You would of course power down and unplug the PC before doing this.

It's not really hard but if you're hesitant any "computer guy" type should be able to do it without much effort.

Of course, if you can get into the CMOS to change the password that would work as well.

I want to install a seond hard drive in computer


can you please open up the CPU and check one thing? Is there any Free port in this cable? One end will be connected to the motherboard and two others to (1)CD/DVD rom and (2) Hard drive.

If there is free, surely you can add one. Please then look for a place where you can place your (ATA not the sata one) harddrive.

Dell dimension 4300s want to move hard drive to a new machine


You can move it but you have to remember that its going to have different hardware then your dell 4300 so it might require you to install drivers for the hardware that windows XP pro can't recognize. Keep that in mind so as long as you know where to go to get drivers for the hardware in that other machine, it won't be a problem.
