If you forgot windows xp password, you can reset it by several ways, for example, use the default administrator account if you forgot Windows XP password, if your use windows vista or windows 7, you can use windows xp password reset disk or password recovery tools. IT is easy.

Hate to say this .. if the BIOS is locked , there is nothing much, that can be done.
You need to call Dell Tech support , verify the account information and they would give you an unlock code for the BIOS . Once thats is done opening windows is easy .


Thanks

Step 1:
The Dell Inspiron 1501 is a laptop computer which ships with the Windows Vista operating system. Recovering a lost password can seem difficult, as you will be locked out of the passworded account until remedial measures are taken, but it is not impossible. Recover from a lost password on your Dell Vista system by using the password-recovery features of your operating system.

Restart your Dell 1501 and tap "F8" as the computer is booting. Choose the "Safe Mode" option and press "Enter." Select the "Administrator" account to log in to the computer in Safe Mode. Click "Start," type "control userpasswords2" in the "Search" box and press "Enter." Click on the locked account and press "Reset Password." This resets and recovers the password on your Dell computer.

Forgot my adminastrator password


You should be able to restart the computer and upon restart start tapping the F8 key to go into Safe Mode. Once you are in, you should be able to clear the password, restart normally into Windows and you should not be prompted for the password.

Reformatting the hard drive is the best way to solve this problem. Reformatting will also get rid of all the junk files and make the system faster.

I dont know the adminastration password


If you are lucky, the system is running Windows XP home edition. Boot to the Safe mode (F8) at boot, and see if you have an option for an ADMINISTRATOR account if there is, the password should be blank. Then you can boot to that account, and reset the password on your account.

Here is a link to more information on dealing with a forgotten password.

Hi, my daughter has a dell inspiron 1501 used from my sister. and well it was working fine . then we did not have it on for while and now when it comes on asking for the password it doesnt work. we use all...


When your computer boots and the login screen appears press control(ctrl) + alt + delete twice. This will bring up a window asking you for your username and password.
Type "administrator" without the quotes as the username and leave the password field blank. Press OK.
When you are logged in as an administrator change the password for your old username using control panel>user accounts.

If this doesn't work then you need to reset the administrator password. Visit this link -> >LINK<
