    I have not heard of anyone who has a bios password on the laptop that is able to boot beyond the screen. Also by default the USB and other devices are at the bottom of the boot order so I don't see how it would work if the first boot device is bootable but not accessable. Please give insight if you have any.

    The only way this is possible. Is if the boot priority had CD first already configured in Bios settings
    Since about 2000 onwards, all (most) Bios settings have been set for CD as first boot option
    All free options should be tried first :grinthumb

    if there is Lan or Floppy set as first boot option and you need those DST files, follow the Link in Julio´s Post.

    Try these two master passwords for Latitude CP:

    Otherwise try the generator attachment in here: https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic90285.html (note it should be at the bottom of the thread)

    Intro with a request to reopen a closed thread

    I am new to posting here and am interested in gaining more knowledge about computers. i am in a fix that only the gurus here seem to be able to help me with. after searching the postings and google results as instructed by the moderators here have said to do, i am still unable to overcome my problem. if one of the greats would be so kind as to grant me an audience for a hash code for the nx9010. I have searched and am unable to make headway due to my level of ignorance. I have worked very hard to adhere to the decision of the moderators, however, with out some direct aid, i am lost. the hash code is 00202. i have searched, and yet, I have been unable to find a solution. Please, forgive me for asking for an answer that has been closed. i await a response with hope, humility and respect. to the gods of techspot, I ask of you to please have a bit of sympathy for your humble minion and reveal to me the how to and/or means, if not the answer, for acquiring the solution for the hash code above.
