    Are you referring to a BIOS password? A BIOS password is something that comes up right after you turn your computer on. Please clarify.

To remove the BIOS password from a desktop. All you need to do is open the tower. Locate the CMOS battery. Remove it. Wait for a minute then put it back in. That would resolve the problem. However, that would also reset the BIOS settings back to factory settings. Meaning the dates will have to changed back to current. Depending on the BIOS, either press F2 or DEL then change the date there. Please let me know if this would resolve your issue.

How do i reset my password in laptop


If you've forgotten your Windows password and you're on a domain, you should contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you're not on a domain, you can reset your password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.

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.

Administrator password Dell Inspiron 1720


If the system is asking for an administrator password in Windows and you are wanting to format and reinstall the system, then the password shouldn't be an issue. Most inspiron systems are equipped with a PC Restore partition CTRL+F11 just after the Dell Splash Screen should enable the restore process. If PC Restore doesn't work, then boot to the XP CD and format the NTFS partition and install Windows XP clean. If you have Windows Vista, the PC Restore is run from the F8 Boot menu. If no restore partition is accessible in Vista, then again Boot to the Vista DVD and format the NTFS partition and install VIsta.

Computer is locking me out. Asks for password but can't enter one because wants password to open lock on keychain.


First, make sure the CAPS LOCK is not on, then try to access it through safe mode using the Administrator Account. If that doesn't work, as a last resort, you can use a friends PC to burn a Password Recovery CD from this website:

Make sure you follow the walkthrough to a T, as anything changes made could mess it up.
