Dont know the answer but i thouight that if you set the bios to boot from cd,insert cd,then restart computer,you shouldf be able to reformat and reinstall windows.

Just a thought,this should be in the Help section nwhere you may get a better response.

tullie, thanks for that but i do not know how to do that and as i said, the very first thing the laptop asks for is the password so you dont get past that.

how do i put my question in to the help section tullie ??
