I have a Dell Latitude C600 that my sister gave me. She didn't use it for the longest time, then when she gave it to me I can't use it. The problem is when it powers up and the boot screen is finished I get a page asking for the primary or admin passwords. My sis can't remember what she used as a pass, and I have no idea what the admin pass would be. I've googled this problem and came up with some answers, but none that worked. It won't let me do anything without these passwords either. I get 5 attempts at the pass then the system shuts itself down. During the boot process it says F2 for setup and F12 for... boot menu I think. I've tried both of these and it acts like its going to let me in there; then it goes straight to the pass screen. Does anyone have any suggestions? If not you might be able to find this thing on ebay or something... :thumbsup:

Is this password screen after windows starts or before?

While your reason is a legitimate one
