hey this is brandini. everything i know about computers i tought myself. i had a laptop and got left alone in strange places for long periods of time, the laptop was my only escape. and now one of the only reasons im here is to unlock my dell latitude Cpi. i locked it up about 4 years ago. its been in storage and now i want unlock where it all began. i have documents on that laptop that could never be replaced. i must have them! and hope to retrieve them myself. OK HERES WHAT HAPPENED..... i was messing around in the bios and saw where you could enable an administrator password. and that password wouldnt just unlock windows it unlocked the whole damn computer! and i found that black and white screen VERY PLEASING!!!!! and like i said before i was left in strange places with people i did not know that well. so in fear of not only having my laptop stolen but those documents being found also i put a password on everything i could! just passworded the bios and the hard disk. so please help me!!!!! i have read the posts in DELL BIOS PASSWORD REMOVAL FORUM and i get some things on there. but if anyone has suggestions or a solution to my long drugout story or problem could you please give me step by step instructions!! i figured if i could recover files i lost on a hard drive that i let strong magnets have there way with i figured i could do this myself without taking it to a PRO! and paying out the ***!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh yeah i forgot the password!!!
