Dear Smokie,

Please boot your laptop in Safe mode then go to the Control panel and create a new user, after creation of new user ,re-start the laptop then you can login through new user and delete the older user profile through control panel.

Takecare & Be happy always

Can not remember my password to my computer hoe can i log in

If you have other user account on it with admin rights can remove teh password or remove the account and make it again and save the files ..but if you are the only user and the user password is the issue need to reinstall the operation system cause there is no other way ..
If you have someone good on computers can try to hook the hard disk to another computer and locate the file with the password and change it or delete it , but I''m not sure about results..
Anyway hooking it up on another windows system may help you to retrieve important files on C drive ..and after that reinstall and format the C drive ..and I suggest not to use a password anymore unless really necessary ..
have a nice day , and please rate my helps my activity here ...

Dell Latitude D410, son changed User Name and Password. He doesn't remember either one. How do I reset both?

if you are admin user sign on to your account go to control panel/ user account/ create a new account for your son........(do not delete his old account you may delete access to documents)

if you are not admin user or there is no admin user...
unplug PC, take cover off... take battery (it looks like a nickel, a little bit thicker) for 5 mins... then replace,,, put cover back on plug in to AC...... turn on system once in go straight to user account and delete the password else you will be lock out again once you shut down.

My xps600 does not allow me to sign in to windows, it asks me to tipe in password right after it turns on, and after i tipe it in , it says wrong password, system halted and it says it needs to shut down.

You password has been compromised. Please login as administrator and change the password for the user ID which you login as. Administrator login is available on Safe Mode

Have wireless network at home trying to add my sons laptop to network but have forgot security key/passphrase which laptop is asking for

All you need to do is log into the router usually with the pc that is attached to the router (wired) by typing into the run command box Depending on the brand of router you'll either put in admin and no password or admin for the password or admin and password for password. Once in the router go to the wireless security tab and you can see the network key. Hope this helps
