The actual 100% correct answer is: yes.

You could use a DVD instead... or many other elaborate methods (that i've had to use over the years) including:

*Booting from a DOS disk and installing Windows from another hard disk pre-loaded with the i386 directory from a Windows CD.

*Booting from a DOS disk with USB CDROM support.

*RIS - Remote Installation Services hosted from a Windows Server box, with a client PC supporting a PXE bootrom on it's network card

But all these other solutions require you to have access to a Windows CD. If you want to reinstall Windows, you need a Windows CD or your manufacturer's recovery CD. Without that, the process cannot begin.

I have forgotten my password to my dell c521 computer, not the system password


As far as I know, there are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, retrieve, reset windows password. However, I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years. The free software can help you, but you have to learn some computer skills and waste a lot time on learning. If you want to save more time, maybe Google third party password recovery tool or Google Window Password Seeker can help you.

How to reset the bios on an acer aspire idea 510


Insert the original "System Restore" CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive.
Restart the computer.
Press a key to "change boot order".
Choose to boot from the CD/DVD drive.
Does your computer start to read the disk, and start to load something?

If so, then there's _nothing_ wrong with your computer that _WOULD_ be corrected by doing a "reset" of the BIOS. Put differently, try a "reset" of the BIOS *ONLY* as the _LAST_ thing that you try.

It's more likely that your 'C:' drive has a problem that prevents Windows from loading.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.
