A co-worker of mine (who speaks very broken English) brought his laptop to me asking how to get past the BIOS password screen. He's had the laptop for a while and it was working fine until sometime yesterday when he put in a tutorial CD and it said he was missing some files. He restarted & is now at this problem. I Googled for a few different solutions and the only one I could see was calling Dell. Since the laptop is so outdated and he can't speak English well I don't know what to do. Is there some generic p/w system they use?
