    How can I recover or get around a for gotten password? I can't get into the bios (password protected-don't know it) nor can I boot to safe mode or a command prompt. It's the OS on my laptop and it won't boot to the cd-rom or for some reason a boot disk either. I tried Microsoft support but I can't get through to them. Can you help? Much appreciated.

    You need to supply more info. If you have a DEll, there is no getting around this, you must contact dell. If it is an offbrand, good luck, each one is built differently. Have fun finding any jumpers or battery.
