For recovering Windows login Passwords safely, I would suggest tool Windows Password Seeker. Not only support XP/Vista/2000/NT, but also compatible with windows 7, it works perfectly to reset Windows OS Password. I wrote it to a USB flash drive. Booting up and clearing my password in 4 minutes. You could Search Windows Password Seeker

I need to find the bios chip dell inspiron1545


Unfortunately, there is no video from Dell that will show you how to remove a bios chip. You can call Dell Support and have them provide you with information on resetting your bios password.

Was given a dell insprion530 with a locked password

If it is a bios password (Password asked immediately when you turn on your PC), simply remove the coin type battery from the motherboard and put it back. LOL!!! your pwd is reset.

I think the convenient and easy way is to use a windows password recovery tool that can do all the job for you within a few minutes automatically! Windows Password Recovery 6.0 is an easy-to-use tool designed for resetting local administrator and user passwords on any Windows system. If you have forgotten your password, or are locked out, or you do not have access to the password of the system.

I have a dell inspiron 5000\laptop\the lefthand side of my nkeyboard isn't working . i'm using a exsternal keyborad?

Hello, The keyboard is connected to the mainboard via a ribbon like connector. A keyboard is actually a matrix of contacts that are linked togheter via some 5-6 lines. If one of this lines fails (broken contact, a connector that got loose) an entire area of keys will stop to work. You may recognise connector problems of such type by looking carefully at the keys that don't work. You may find that the non working keys form lines from the top to the bottom. For example if you find that the "q" key isn't working, then the "a" and "z" and "alt" may not work as well. For "w" key, the coresponding line is "S" "x" "\" and so on. In order to fix this problem you need to dissasemble the laptop and check the connection between the keyboard and the motherboard. If you have some tools (small screwdrivers mostly) and some basic knoledge about dissasembling electronic things I will assist you through the process. Please reply back if you are willing to try to fix the laptop on your own and I will guide you through the process. Otherwise, a service center may be able to dissasemble the laptop and check that connector or the keyboard for a small fee. Please reply back when you make the decision to either repair it yourself or let a service center do the job. Good luck. Bogdan.
