If you have forgotten the Windows password:

A forgotten windows password can be problematic.

If you have windows XP HOME edition, boot to the SAFE MODE (Press F8 during boot to get startupmenu) select the ADMIN account (Password should be blank) Once inwindows, go to Control Panel, User Accounts and reset the password onthe effected account.

If you cannot perform the above, then this link has the best listing of recovery suggestions I've found:

If you need to change a forgotten BIOS password, you will need to contact Dell Technical Support for a BIOS Master Password.
