Question about Dell Latitude C400 Notebook
Can I boot from a CD and reload Windows or replace the hard drive?
It's 50/50. With some hard drives you can reload the system, with some you can't. If it's one that won't allow you then you will need to replace the hard drive. One little trick you might try if the hard drive won't allow you to reload is place the hard drive on the speaker magnet in your car overnight. Open the trunk, and you should see the magnet at the base of the speaker, just stick the hard drive directly to it, and leave it. A speaker magnet is strong enough to scramble a hard drive. This doesn't always work, but it has worked a couple of times for me with hard drives I've picked up at auction that were password protected.
