HI FOLKS, I HAVE PROBLEM THAT AS OF YET I AM UNABLE TO SOLVE. I AM UNABLE TO GET IN TO THE SETUP MODE ON MY CLEVO LAPTOP TO ENABLE ME TO FORMAT THE DRIVE AND REINSTALL WINDOWS XP PRO. I PRESS F2 IT THEN GOES INTO THE BIOS SETUP UTILITY, AND TELLS ME TO ENTER THE PASSWORD, THAT I DO NOT KNOW, IS THERE ANY WAY TYO DISABLE THIS PASSWORD SO I CAN GET IN TO SETUP MODE. I WANT TO UNINSTALL WINDOWS XP, AND THEN REINSTALL. I HAVE 2 DRIVES ON MY LAPTOP, WINDOWS IS INSTALLED ON D,WHICH IS 2GB AND DRIVE C WHICH IS 25 GB, IS THREE PERHAPS ANYWAY TO RUN MY WINDOWS DISK AND INSTALL IT ON TO MY C DRIVE. AS I SAID I DO NOT KNOW THE PASSWORD ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED

Just hit Enter, there is no password by default so that should do it.

Will it boot from CD?

If so then Boot with XP CD in drive and select recovery consul.

At the d: prompt type format d:

Reboot this time to windows setup and install on the partion of your choice.
