I forgot my login administrator password for my dell xps window 7


Anonymous,
If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.
Thank You,

I forgot my Dell Dimension E310 administrator password and can't log in. What should I do? Should I call Dell to reset the password or switch the administrator to another user?


That would be the best solution. As long as you can login and the account has administrator rights.


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

FORGOT ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD FOR DELL PC DIMENSION 3000


Forgot Dell windows password ?

If you have already have one, so just do as below:
Here are the steps to use the disk for your password recovery.
Step 1: If you enter the wrong password when you attempt to log on, Windows will display a message that the password is incorrect. Click "OK" to close the message box.
Step 2: Click "Reset Windows Password", and then insert Windows password reset disk (or other removable media).
Step 3: Follow the steps in the "Password Reset Wizard" to create a new password.
Step 4: Log on with the new password.


If you do not have a reset disk, you can use Windows Password Reset ( http://www.windowspasswordreset.net ) to create one.

I recently bought a Dell Dimension 4700 at an auction. I got it home, started it up, but can't get past the administrative password to access the drive's entire memory. any suggestions?


Unless you are comfortable with using software such as Billix, or ERD Commander to set the Administrator password to blank. It would probably be easier to reinstall the OS. It would probably be good to do that anyway, because you don't know what was left on there by the previous owner. Might have Viruses or other nasty stuff.

Hope this helps

Forgot pasword for windows vista


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:

- see this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip
