    Check Device Manager and see if the network adapter is working. The NIC appears to be an Intel Pro 100/VE and XP should detect the NIC and install the driver. Other Dimension 4700 driver are available here.

    All may not be lost.

    It seems i WAS wrong in assuming that the password protection is not crackable but it seems that it is only onl laptops and not desktops.

    Oops.

    Now back to the question at hand.

    Have a look at this site and specifically the clearing forgotten passwords section. Hopefully this will help you.

    If i rememebr correctly you need to contact Dell for a master reset password as they are not crackable.

    I could be wrong though.

    From your description, it is the BIOS password thats the problem, so you cannot even get into windows.

    Do a quick google or try here: http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.shtml

    If all else fails, you can check the PC documentation on how to clear all BIOS settings, but this is very much a last resort
