Dell inspiron 1800 wont boot porperly

AHH this is like the 5th time my friend asked me too fix his WINDOWS computer... windows users just don't get it.... But anyways when the machine shows its startup screen, the loading bar fills and it goes to a gray screen asking for a password. he says he hasn't set a password. I am positive I cant blame this on windows though. I am not on dells side either though. Anybody got any ideas ?

And give me the old one.

it woudnt be worth the shipping..... the keyboard all fallen apart he has to use a usb mouse....... it would make a nice clock though......
yeah i reuse them or use them a organ donors (i am like kiteman + killerjackalope)=me!
take mine, i'll leave it out front, it needs a new hard drive
What a coincidence! I can buy a new hard drive! Perfect match.

. Resetting the BIOS _may_ fix it. See your mobo manual (it should be on Dell's web site, if you've lost it) for directions. Usually there is a jumper that has to be moved, then a reboot, then move the jumper back to its' original position. Sometimes removing the battery for a few hours will do it.
