Download Trinity Rescue Disk and use it to make a bootable TRK USB drive. You may have to change BIOS settings to allow booting from external USB drive. Boot from the trinity rescue disk, and use the "windows password resetting" feature to remove the password from your user account.

Dell inspiron 1300 laptop administrator password reset


You have to enter the password to be able to use the computer. There is no way to recover the password. Passwords stop other people from using your computer. If there was a way to bypass it, passwords would be absolutely useless in protecting your computer from unwanted people gaining information about you.

Hi
have you tried going into the cmos settings to try and disable the password,
sometimes you can take out the cmos battery out to clear the password.

You may have to replace the hard drive, but the password may still be in the bios.


You can also google the problem and see if any one else was able to resolve the issue.


cheers

I bought lap top at pawn shop. it was working fine and then my son reset it to earlier date. now it wants the previous owners pass words and i dont have them


Best solution, When you press the button to turn power on, as soon as the dell splash screen shows start pressing the F10, F8 or F12 keys, you'll have to try each till you find the correct one, to get to the System restore screen and do a System restore to Factory set up. The Second possible solution, search the web for one of the Password crackers that are out there. Most of the decent ones are free and Linux based and once you download to a CD are self starting from the CD to get past Windows restrictions. I haven't seen any that work on Windows 7 yet but I haven't looked that hard.

This message is what you get if the BIOS is protected by a password. or you get system disabled
