Any advise? no beeps unless i press a key. i'm not sure if its because i reassembled to quick.
well, after you solve the video issue (as Steve stated above, its probably a loose video cable..you must remember that these are MINI's and they are very touchy), there are a couple of ways to fix the BIOS password issue, 1. you can call Dell and they will charge you but they will generate a password for you also, 2. there are people on ebay that will sell you a password also, this again will cost you money, either way it will cost you something...sorry...
