Hi Nairatech! There is one zinox laptop I want to format through booting from CD, but the BIOS Setting is passworded. I would greatly appreciate it if there is anyone in the house who will furnish me with a vital clue on how to go about it. Thanks in anticipation of your potential contributions.

Open the laptop and remove the cmos coin battery for like 10 minutes that should give enough time for the bios to reset to default. You will have to reset the date and time after you do this though. Good luck.
