due to a forgotten password on my dell laptop (xps m1330) i ended up with the admin\bios password screen (grey screen of death). i have the admin\bios password also i have the HDD password. i still couldn't acess the computer so i restored the laptop to factory settings.now when i start the computer i get the grey screen (admin\bios password) so i put in the password hit return and then quickly hit F12 this then gets me to an option of "internal hdd,cd-dvd drive,or onboard nic" below that "bios set up or diagnostics" so choose hdd, hit return and i'm in to the windows vista screen and i'm logged on as i have no other password to put in.now i have acess to the computer. if i don't hit F12 quickly enough then it goes to a screen saying "no boot able devices, F1 to retry boot, F2 for set up utility, F3 to run onboard diagnostics". if i get to this screen i have to switch off and start again, admin password-enter-F12-internal hdd and i'm in. my bios option is and has been set to hdd login. my question is is there any way i can log on normally without going through all of of the above? thanks for any suggestions.
