There is something wrong with this picture. What do you mean by bootleg? Something sounds illegal here.

And what do you mean by "can't get in to DOS"? DOS has no password protection features. Which version of what Operating System is on this PC?
Have you contacted the vendor you got the PC from? How do you know you have an illegal or bootleg copy of (I'm assuming) Windows?
